Baileyana 2006 Pinot Noir GFC (Grand Firepeak Cuvee) Edna Valley


This outstanding Pinot Noir is the one to look for if you love Burgundian Pinot Noir: It’s classic. But that’s not difficult for winemaker Christian Roguenant, a native of France’s Burgundy.

This will only get better with time, so buy what you can afford for the cellar while you still can. It’s $38 retail at the tasting room and local wine shops, or at
