Pinot Noir once again cuts a wide swath in this issue as new releases keep arriving at a breathtaking rate. It is on track to reprise its last-year performance as the single most reviewed variety in these pages, and the considerable collection of outstanding efforts convincingly gives lie to the idea that it is possible to get too much of a good thing.

A good many of the very best names in the business are featured in our latest look at Pinot Noir, and a few new surprises, such as those from Greystack and Fulcrum, add their names to an ever-lengthening roster of eminently collectable examples.

Too often regarded as a minor variety at best thanks to the ocean of simple, quaffable offerings from around the world labeled as Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris can, as the better bottlings from Oregon and California capably prove, make interesting, food-worthy wines of real character.

Tasty, well-made Cabernet does not need to be prohibitively expensive, and both it and easy-to-like Merlot are joined by engaging, wonderfully aromatic Viogniers in our latest installment of particularly fine values that are well worth seeking out.
