    The 2002 HP Highliner was one of the best domestic pinots I have ever tasted, the 2003 is even better. This may be one of the best pinots ever produced in the US. It was just released and is just stunning. You can read more (or order it) here. All of the better HP wines are $40/btl, which is a steal IMO. Edit, 2020wines.com also has it for $36/btl. http://www.hitchingpostwines.com/HPWines.html

    Yes, it is the one that Maya (and later Miles) order in Sideways. Just a great Pinot, actually almost all the wines they profile in the movie are quite good.
