1996 Saintsbury Garnet Carneros Pinot Noir ($14).

This junior member of the Saintsbury pinot noir team has emerged as one of California's most reliable names in pinot noir. Year in and year out -- and 1996 is no different -- it offers lively, bright, black cherry fruit in a medium-light package. It has the Burgundian spirit, though not the exact flavors of fine Burgundy. Try it with grilled chicken or tuna.
