North Fork excursion - so many wineries! How to choose?

Hey hounds,

I'm planning a day trip to the North Fork this weekend, and I've scoured the boards looking for winery recommendations. There are obviously WAY too many to do everything in one day, so I'd really like to hit the best of the best (which I realize does not mean the best known). Also, I'll have my parents with me, and they are much more interested in red wine than white, but unfortunately I've been unable to decipher which wineries (if any) are especially good with reds.

Anyway, I've read every post I can find on this site (mostly at least a year old, unfortunately) as well as a bunch of wine blogs, etc, and I have compiled the following list - more stars means more good recommendations! I'm thinking we'll have time for 4-6 places, so we'll probably just do the six at the top of the list if I don't get any further guidance. Let me know if you see any losers, or any obvious winners that have been left out. Thanks!!!!!!!!
