 Tasted by terroir on 8/15/2007 & rated 86 points: good,decent bottle of pinot gris,compared to Pillar Box White,hint of pineapple, citrus and good balance. LIght on the acidity (1123 views)
 Tasted by jahlove on 1/8/2007 & rated 84 points: Fairly lush nose of pineapple and lemon following through on the palette. Reminds me of Alto Adige a little bit. But falling a little short on acidity for me. I like a little bit more zing. Still a decent bottle, but there are other offerings at this price point that are more impressive, the Adelsheim Pinot Gris 2005 for example. (1331 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.
