  • Mirassou Pinot Grigio 2015


    Lemon and green apple aromas are simple but pleasant with a slight nuttiness to it. This has good lift on the palate and a smooth texture with notes of chunky green apple and pear, lemon and a short clean finish. Read More

  • Ziobaffa Pinot Grigio 2014


    Insipid, acidic and NOTHING like a nice crisp Italian pinot grigio, a wine love. I bought it locally for $4 and it doesn't even rate as good cooking wine. A BIG disappointment. Read More

  • Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2014


    Floral notes of peach and green apple on the nose with tea leaf and honeysuckle. Fresh, lively and playful on the palate, this demonstrates bold acidity and tart fruit notes of lemon and tangerine next to sweet spice and a cool pear finish. Read More
