  • Yeah but it's tough. He said edge of the rust belt - not sure where exactly ... and be under $10. One reason Pinot Grigio became so popular is that it's easy to remember and the cheap ones have no taste and they're undifferentiated. St Cosme is obviously from France, and I believe it's by Louis Barruol, who produces wine all over the north and ...

  • Willamette Valley Vineyards Pinot Gris 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh lemon with bright honeydew melon notes on the nose with a touch of citrus peel. Bright green fruits wash over the palate with a lime twist. All this buttressed by exceptional acidity. Steely and clean on the finish. 90 pts. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Light on the nose but a hint of ripe pears. Heavier texture than expected. Ripe fruit with good acidity and just a touch of bitterness on the rather short finish. Food wine. Read More

  • Torii Mor Winery Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Soft and creamy notes of yeast and lemon with pleasant melon and butter on the nose. Medium bodied in the mouth, this carries some not so subtle notes of biscuit and Meyer lemon with pear and green apple as well. Loads of fruit and acidity, yet still a bit green throughout. Read More

  • Raptor Ridge Pinot Gris 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Light and nutty aromas of toasted almond with hints of lemon on the nose. In the mouth this is rich and round, with soft buttery lemon flavors, chamomile flowers and a buoyant acidity. Carries a pleasant melon and peach flavor through to the finish which is creamy and warm with a burst of lemon zest. Read More
