Just wanted to share that I decided to try a 3rd VINTJS pinot on the recent trip to Trader Joe's -- I've been stocking up on 3-4 bottles of Santa Lucia each time, and on the recent visit I noticed Willamette was no longer stocked but a new one was: 2009 San Lusi Obispo County.

I decided to give it a try (1 bottle, vs. 3 bottles of Santa Lucia since I know I like that one and I had no expectations of San Luis Obispo), but I just had it (well, some of it) and it's even worse than I expected. One of the worst pinots I've had. Tastes alike it was made in a gym locker. Similar "old sock" flavor to Charles Shaw syrah.  Gross.  Avoid this one.  Definitely get the Santa Lucia, but any others I've tried are not even worth the $9 price tag.

Well, hopefully it will live up to my hype then!

It's not an amazing pinot, but I feel well worth the price. I also notice that every time I go their supply is fairly low (this time there was half a shelf, but last time only 3 left, and before that there was none) so I guess I'm not alone in my opinion.
