These wines are California Pinot Noir at its most expressive and complex. Sourced from among the state's greatest Pinot vineyards—Morning Dew Ranch in Anderson Valley, Hirsch on the far Sonoma Coast, Hanzell's historic property on Sonoma Mountain and single sites within the Talley and Calera estates on the Central Coast—they're some of the grands crus of California Pinot.

Bottles to Try:
2011 Hirsch San Andreas Fault Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($60)
2011 Talley Rosemary's Vineyard Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir ($70)
2010 Calera Jensen Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir ($75)
