Community Tasting Notes (average 94 pts. and median of 94 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by TexasBob on 3/6/2014 & rated 93 points: Golden straw yellow. Intense energy on the nose - yes, the nose, you can freaking smell the energy - with bitter honey and a bit of lemon. Sweet Texas ruby red grapefruit is the dominant note with distant secondary notes of peach and lemon. Very nice, if a bit more one-dimensional that I would prefer. (495 views)
 Tasted by TexasBob on 4/19/2013 & rated 94 points: Nice golden-yellow color. Grapefruit and apricots on the nose. Strong notes of apricots dominate, followed by peaches. Secondary notes of grapefruit that show stronger as the very long finish progresses. This is an outstanding wine, as good as many a Sauternes I have tried. In fact, I would say that its flavor profile is similar to the primary notes of the 1989 Chateau d'Yquem, but with somewhat less intensity and nuance. Really excellent. (691 views)
 Tasted by silton on 4/4/2013 flawed bottle: The glass itself was flawed with some kind of hairline fracture near the mold, and more than half of this wine leaked out of the bottle out into the bin before I caught it. The cork/enclosure itself was tight and not sticky! It took several weeks after receiving the wine for this to happen. The remaining wine was carefully strained and was quite delicious. I tried to take a picture with my phone camera but it isn't clear -- the bottle was 2 half-molds fused together, poorly. The bottle was clanked on the ground once when I was first putting it in storage but no damage was detectable at that time. Probably should have asked for my $ back? This all happened months ago at this point and I'm now removing from inventory. (748 views)

Pinot Gris

From Pinot Gris Wikipedia entry:
Wines made from the Pinot gris vary greatly and are dependent on the region and wine making style they are from. Alsatian Pinot gris are medium to full bodied wines with a rich, somewhat floral bouquet. They tend to be spicy in comparisons with other Pinot gris. While most Pinot gris are meant to be consumed early, Alsatian Pinot gris can age well. German Pinot gris are more full-bodied with a balance of acidity and slight sweetness. In Oregon the wines are medium bodied with a yellow to copper-pink color and aromas of pear, apple, and/or melon. In California, the Pinot gris are more light bodied with a crisp, refreshing taste with some pepper and arugula notes. The Pinot grigio style of Italy is a light-bodied, often lean wine that is light in color with sometimes spritzy flavors that can be crisp and acidic. Although this wine can be very sweet, it will begin to lose its acidity when it is nearly ripe.

Pinot gris is considered an "early to market wine" that can be bottled and out on the market within 4–12 weeks after fermentation.
