Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 87.7 pts. and median of 88 pts. in 7 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by LMWheeler on 5/29/2010 & rated 89 points: Golden apple, apricot, and mandarin orange flavors laced with a bright acidity and balanced by a silky viscosity makes this a very easy sipper. Honey and lemon thyme on the finish tingers for quite a while. Borderline tart, but still an incredible value. (1754 views)
 Tasted by cartime on 3/6/2010 & rated 90 points: Clover honey, tangerine, and apricot. Nice acidity, not too sweet. Would probably make a great pairing with Crepes Suzette. (1702 views)
 Tasted by kdubler on 2/16/2010 & rated 86 points: Nice Dessert wine. Great value for the price. Nothing amazing (1858 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.
