Community Tasting Notes (average 3 notes) - and median of 87 pts. in hiding notes with no text
| ||Tasted by masi3v on 10/24/2008 & rated 83 points: Somewhere between the other two bottles. The nose was muted and not much there. On the palate some faded fruit came through, but clearly this one had sailed a while ago. Not unpleasant by any means, just unremarkable. (682 views)|
| ||Tasted by masi3v on 10/4/2008 flawed bottle: Golden color with oxidation clearly present. The oxidation burned off a bit, but clearly this one had issues. (667 views)|
| ||Tasted by masi3v on 10/1/2008 & rated 91 points: About 1.5 inches below cork, but a very light color and a nose of pineapple and citrus. Clearly old, without much fruit and completely dry, but really a treat. Clearly, the residual sugar preserved this one nicely. Really good. (674 views)|

Pinot GrisFrom 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.
