Looking for a new everyday Pinot

I *heart* retail

I'm risk-adverse. And right now I carry the health insurance for my husband and I. He's a former journalist looking to change careers so that might change and if it does, I'd be a little less risk-adverse.

First post ever. I'm the beverage head at a large retail chain that sells more than just wine/beer. Had a little old lady (don't be deceived) come in to return a bottle of wine that she and her friends all decided they didn't like and she wanted to return it.
