Atrea Roussanne the Choir Lakeview Vineyards United States California Mendocino County White 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This shows off some pineapple and coconut sun tan lotion notes early on the nose over notes of orange and pine nuts. Rather ripe and round on entry, this lacks just a touch of acid but does remain fairly bright. Lots of pear, dried lime and candied orange flavors come out on the palate along with a floral top note, but the fruits seem a bit meaty and roasted, leading to a lean, short finish that shows a touch of alcohol. 85pts

Reminiscent of a classic Pinot Grigio with floral nuances that come through the nose; balanced, smooth and easy drinking just like a PG.
