Just to flesh out the local issue with Weyerbacher: Their taproom is yuuge off a major interstate so getting to-from is a bit of a thing even if you’re local. They’ve changed the PA laws to allow taprooms to essentially function as bars now. They can serve their beer on premise and do growler/crowl...

Re: Less expensive Pinot Noirs from many producers are often lighter and better than the more expensive bottlings

They tend to get it mostly right in the vineyard, producing great fruit, then think that the better cuvees need to be slathered in the most expensive winemaking techniques (lots and lots of the best new oak). Fred, IIRC, the term I've heard is: "slutting it up". We're in agreement, although some of...

Re: Less expensive Pinot Noirs from many producers are often lighter and better than the more expensive bottlings

Pinot Noir is complicated and resistant to easy definition and/or categorization. I've definitely had less expensive lighter style bottlings that I've preferred to bigger more concentrated home run efforts. I believe that it's harder to hide flaws in "lighter" Pinot Noir.
