18 top Californian Pinot Noirs

1 4.55 5
From an auspicious start in the 1970s, Californian winemakers learned from the Burgundy masters and fine-tuned their style. Price and availability outside of the US is an issue, but many are well worth seeking out. See Stephen Brook's top 18 Californian Pinot Noirs as featured in Decanter's California 2013 guide here...

17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Super-ripe mint and raspberry nose, quite oaky. Supple yet concentrated, with firm tannins that need time to integrate, but overall this is lush and long.
