I just posted this and lost it, so I hope it doesn't show up twice.
Anyway, I am looking for a fruit forward (but not cloying) pinot noir for everyday drinking that doesn't cost a fortune. With Flowers Camp Meeting Ridge in my mind, I have tried quite a few pinot noirs under $30 and nothing has satisfied the craving. Either there is no fruit or it has no finish, or it just doesn't taste like a pinot. I just ordered Bookster, in the $20s, but haven't tried it yet. Most I have tried are from California and Oregon. I do enjoy Burgundies new and old (love H. Lignier, Dominique Laurent), but cannot afford those wines for every day.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. If you live in NYC, and know where to find your recs, please include the shop info too.
