Carrefour held it's wine fair at the Plaza Singapura atrium from the 3 Mar - 15 Mar. I just managed to catch the last day at the fair. Cornerstone Cellars were there promoting their range of wines. The number of french wines from the 2005 has been declining as expected, though there were still many bottles of La Tour Carnets.

Here are some of the bottles I found :
Ch. La Tour Carnet 2005 $79.90

Cloudline Oregon Pinot Noir 2007 (USA)

Heard about the exquisite nature of Oregon Pinots, so I bought a bottle to try.
Light pale violet in the glass

Smell : Gentle delicate raspberry with touch of spice.

Taste : Addictive infusion of herbs, raspberry, strawberry mixture.

After taste : Fair comfortable length with some tannins.

Description at back of bottle:
Cloudline is a wonderful and elegant expression of Pinot Noir, the most inspiring and seductive of all grapes. Relying exclusively on the best vineyards in Oregon. Cloudline is a true representation of Pinot Noir incredibly rich charming, harmonious and complete. The wine is beautifully balanced and fruit forward, with a silky texture and a gentle spice of oak.
