Saarloos & Sons - Probably my favorite producer from this trip. This is a small, family owned operation. I loved all their reds, but none moreso than the MRSPinot Noir. Thick, rich and balanced, it had tastes of honey and golden apple against red berries. It also happens to be $52/bottle. If I had lots and lots of money, I'd have lots and lots of bottles of this. But I couldn't bring myself to cough up the money at the time and, being a small producer, they'll probably run out soon which means I'll never get to taste this wine again. And that makes me sad. But this is a producer I'll be keeping my eyes on for a long time.
