Light-bodied Red Wines

Louis Jadot, Burgundy Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2005
This red burgundy from Louis Jadot is surprisingly delightful, offering vivid cherry fruit flavors with intriguing earthy undertones. ($20)
Sherwood Estate Pinot Noir
Good kiwi pinot noirs avoid the excessive sweetness that mars so many American renditions of this super-trendy varietal. This one offers exceptional value.
