Community Tasting Notes (average 85.3 pts. and median of 86 pts. in 6 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by wolfen18 on 9/7/2009 & rated 80 points: Flat with no real taste. yech! (1063 views)
 Tasted by Squirreljam on 4/2/2008 & rated 87 points: Tale of two cities... On the nose, restrained fruit, touch of earth - in other words, "old world". The palate however is rich and buttery with an easily detectable sweetness that feels completely new world. There's a mineral note on the finish and the acidity is there so it's a good wine, just the mouthfeel threw me. (1450 views)
 Tasted by KillerScaryRawr on 10/14/2007 & rated 85 points: Tasted as part of a flight @ KE. Nice pinot gris sweet citrus on nose. tropical fruity, almost too sweet with little acidity, slightly syrupy. Very close to an excellent wine but the sugars masked the otherwise nice balance.

b's notes: good pinot gris, a little sweet (86) (1628 views)
 Tasted by GolferChris on 9/22/2007 & rated 86 points: Light, crisp and refreshing. Aromas of flowers, white stone fruit and a hint of spice. Good food wine. (1710 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.
