Barefoot Cellars Pinot Grigio California 2010
I have had this wine on numerous occasions. Most recently, it was served at a casual dinner hosted by friends. When I saw the bottle, I thought, "Barefoot! How cheap!" However, I found it much better than the more expensive chardonnay that had brought to the dinner. It was light, crisp, fruity and refreshing. A very drinkable wine. I learned a lesson on "wine snobbery."
In 2 words...not good. Pay a couple buck more and get a bottle of Estancia or Ecco Domani.
Aroma like grape juice, flavor profile the same. The texture is nice, but there's no complexity and it feels more like drunk-grape-drink than wine. But still drinkable! "Bare"-ly.
Smells very earthy and of mixed bouquet, overly acidic, taste like sour oranges, a bit bitter, not my fave.
Scented lotioned feet, sweet bubblegum. Tastes like grandma's perfume. Good for a night with the girls.
tastes like weak 7Up. Not worth it.
Slightly sweeter than other pinot grigios. Lots of people buy it up, popular
External Reviews for Barefoot Cellars Pinot Grigio California
Barefoot Pinot Grigio has tart green apple flavors with a white peach undertone. Floral blossoms and citrus aromas do the tango. Light-bodied with a bright finish.
Good price for an everyday white wine. The citron, pineapple, apple and honeysuckle flavors are a little sweet, but cleansed with brisk acidity.
Medium weight, crisp acidity. Green apple and White peach with citrus florals. A touch of effervescence. - Winery
Made in the easy, crisp and affordable style that has made this variety so popular, this Pinot Grigio has fruity flavors of peaches, apricots, apples, pineapples, tangerines and vanilla, with a spicy, honeyed finish.
As refreshing as an ocean breeze, Barefoot Pinot Grigio is light-bodied, elegant and flavorful. Tart green apple flavors harmonize with notes of luscious white peach, floral blossom, and citrus.
We are generally not big fans of Italian Pinot Grigio, which is often watery and charmless. U.S. wines called Pinot Grigio can have the same problem, though we have better luck with U.S. wines called Pinot Gris, which is the same grape. We had a terrific Pinot Gris from J Vineyards & Winery at Disney World recently (2007 Russian River Valley; $60 at Wolfgang Puck Café at Downtown Disney) that had hints of earthy honeydew melon, with some weight. It had a certain clarity of fruit and some richness and it was really pleasing and satisfying. In a tasting of American Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris last year, Barefoot Cellars was one of our favorites. We tried it again for this tasting in magnum size and, once again, thought it was a real winner, especially for the price. It’s fleshy and peachy, with some weight and true white-grape tastes. We’d pair it with more-flavorful, more-complex summer dishes, like salads with all sorts of toppings, and pastas.
Floral and perfumey on the nose with concentrated flavors of apple, pear, and spice; light to medium bodied with a balanced, fruity finish. Green salad.
