This wine needs to breath! My husband and I opened the wine, decanted it and started drinking it right away. We were very disappointed with it! It was very acidic and harsh, and almost had a vinegar feel to it, and as a result could only bear to drink half a glass each. However, the next night, I decided to give the wine another try (at this point it had been breathing overnight), and the wine had opened up and was smooth and round (no more vinegar!). The second night the wine had a light body with a nose of raspberries and strawberries and had a velvety smoothness to it. Can be enjoyed alone or with food (after extensive breathing!).

medium bodied with a citris note, not too acidic,with a slightly bold finish. Best Pino Grigio I've tasted so far. Only around $8 which is a bonus too. A must try!
