The Kitchn asks the question, “can you get a quality pinot noir for under $20?”. The answer seems to be “yes you can” . There are some caveats.

“…they lacked the complexity that only really great Pinot Noir can deliver. But for the price, I was more than happy with most of the wines.”

And interestingly my home country featured prominently.

“While I tasted some good wines from California, my preference, at this price point is New Zealand. Their cooler climate enables a more restrained Burgundian style.”

The 2006 Delta Vineyard Pinot Noir was the top rated wine. <link>

“Concentrated red and black cherry with pretty floral notes of roses and violets and inviting woodsy notes. Smooth, silky tannins and persistent, elegant fruit across the palate. (18/20)”

Thank you The Kitchn. Good job.
