 Tasted by heidoanddave on 5/17/2011 & rated 87 points: This was the last bottle in a half case we had. Citrus, lime, and acidity. A nice pinot grigio, but this vintage might be past its prime. (1346 views)
 Tasted by ecola on 2/3/2011 & rated 89 points: Aromas of baked apple and citrus. Clean and bright citrus fruit on the palate. Loads of lime on the crisp acidic finish. ($15) (1373 views)
 Tasted by piyeh on 11/29/2009 & rated 83 points: 開瓶後立即感受到強烈的新鮮葡萄柚果香,且還有些許的香料味,此外還有檸檬,梨子以及水蜜桃的清香。在口中充滿著柔順細緻的果香以及柔軟而成熟的蘋果香和蜂蜜味。回韻則留下了一種非常微妙而些微的鹹味。 (2270 views)
 Tasted by slipstream9 on 8/29/2008 & rated 87 points: Fine but nothing special. Solid Grigio. (1799 views)
 Tasted by Gotwine1969 on 5/3/2008 & rated 86 points: Pretty nice for a Pinot Grigio which I am usually not a fan of. Solid fruit core with a nice bracing acidity and minimal oak. Refreshing and easy to like. (1945 views)

(Swanson Pinot Grigio) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-light golden; NOSE-pretty pink grapefruit; little spritz action; a corn muffin aspect; good nose; TASTE-strange...I'm getting a subtle hint of coffee ice cream; a cheap perfume aspect; very bland and confusing; confused wine (has acidity, but then it gets creamy & oaky like a Chard); don't like this wine; WE-90; GV-79  79 points

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
