Cheap Pinot Noir

 

The only reason for this tasting is curiosity. To wit, are there any decent Pinot Noir in the under $15.00 range?

 

Just to give the experts something to do I have listed 10 possible geographic sources of these fine young wines. Unfortunately there are only six wines, I suspect that a score of three right will be excellent.

 

Australia

Argentina

California

Canada

Chile

France

Italy

Oregon

South Africa

Switzerland
