Cupcake Pinot Grigio 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Pinot Grigio is full, with the flavors of ripe pears, a creamy mid-palate and a long lingering finish. It is reminiscent of a pear cupcake with white chocolate.

Our winery is located in Monterey County, California where warm days give way to cool nights as the fog rolls in off of the Pacific Ocean. It’s this cooling influence that slows the growing process, increasing the time the grapes “hang” on the vine and thereby allow our grapes to mature a little slower than in hotter regions. Slow growth and cool weather leads to a more balanced level of acids and sugars, thereby adding to the complexity and structure of the wines of the Central Coast. This region is poised to become one of the newest and most exciting viticultural opportunities in the coming years. This slow pace continues in our cellar where we take the time to craft wines that are complex, rewarding and hand made. Gentle pressing, cool fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and long barrel aging in small barriques allow us to elevate our wines so that they are rich, creamy and downright delicious. Our winemaker, Adam Richardson has since added a few additional wines from other cool climate regions to augment our portfolio and match up with additional cupcake profiles, like our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Yakima Valley Riesling, and Mendoza Malbec. Go ahead, live deliciously. Read less

A touch faded with peach and pear fruit on the nose. Soft in the mouth, but at the same time it’s kind of delicate with a light appeal to the fresh apple and pear flavors. A hint of bitterness on the back end adds some nice contrast and extends the finish. 83pts

Nothing special, just a decent Pinot Grigio that is a bit more flavorful than something like Cavit or Beringer. If Cavit is 3/5 I would give this 3.1/5 ...

The bouquet is...rather unpleasant.
