Re: Any Nikolaihof fans?

Definitely a fan and he's a nice guy to talk to. Both you mention are very nice and I've purchased them myself. If you want a nice easy drinking intro, find the 2016 Zwickl (named after the beer style which they like). I drank 3 or 4 of them in the last year.

Re: Best US Pinot for $30 or under

Drinking the 2017 Cameron Dundee Hill Pinot right now. Much better on day 2, and it is quite lovely with more Cameron funk than the previous 2 vintages.

Re: The Bourbon Thread

In one of the sketchiest neighborhoods around Seattle in the liquor store next to the pot shop, I saw a bottle each of:

Pappy 15 - $2000
Stagg - $600
Old Fitzgerald 9 - $600

Needless to say, hard pass.
