Cooper Pinot Grigio 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Rather intense citrus zest and ripe herb notes with lovely floral top notes some alcohol shows but surprising well-balanced nose. Lots of sweet fruit up front, green berries and green plum combine with a rich, plush mouthfeel to produce a rather unusual wine. One that feels over-ripe yet maintains surprisingly good freshness of flavor; inner mouth perfume is very sweet with notes of green tea and jasmine. The wine lacks some freshening acidity but is bursting with apricot and almost guava tones. The alcohol is more apparent in the mouth but this still manages to pull it off. The finish is a touch short but this is quite an interesting wine, though certainly not for everyone. 88pts

Cooper Vineyards (California):
December 16, 2004 we were an anxious group of Coopers, cautiously optimistic that when we opened our doors someone would venture down the gravel driveway to see what was just over the hill. As the years have passed we are humbled by how many people we've met, and how many of you have become friends. Thank you for your support.
