Crane Lake Pinot Grigio California 2009
Light in color, this Pinot Grigio has aromas of pineapple and pear. Complex flavors include green apple, citrus and melon. Clean soft finish. This wine can be sipped by itself, or enjoyed with a variety of foods. For starters this wine goes well with steamed clams, crab cakes and scallop bisque. For the main course one might try pork tenderloin, roasted chicken, seared Ahi Tuna or pasta in a cream sauce.
Crane Lake is a value-driven brand produced by Franzia and Bronco Wine Company. The majority of these wines are produced in California, with some branching out into Australia (for Down Under Chardonnay and others). These are available in supermarkets and most retailers.
Excellent for an inexpensive pinot. Easily on par with the Barefoot.
Oh man, for a cheap bottle of wine this stuff is good! Best thing is it's good in a glass and good to cook with as well. I'm not wine expert but the Pinot Grigio actually tastes better the longer it sits in your glass and acclimates to room temperature. Smooth and a bit fruity when chilled but the oak flavor becomes more pronounced and smoother as the temperature rises and the wine breaths.
