Loring's Central Coast Pinot Noir is fresh and direct, round and smooth. And you want to take sip after sip. An extraordinary wine for the price, and if you're a Pinot Noir lover, run, don't walk to grab a bottle before it's gone. The Pinots from Santa Rita Hills or Santa Lucia Highlands from this label are around, too, in the $30 to $35 price range. From $20 to $25.
