Fetzer Pinot Grigio California Valley Oaks 2011

Member Review by Zuiko:

Tasted in Oct 2013 and this wine has little fruit, short finish and is dry. Flat/dull, nothing going on here. Nice deep gold color however. My rating 77.

Great mix of fruit flavors. I like the honey and crisp acidity at the finish.

More tart than sweet. Tastes of green apples and grapefruit. Perks the palate. Very refreshing! Not sure if the price is a misprint. I bought this wine for under $20.

Offers a refreshing medley of melon, citrus and peach flavors. Spicy details give this wine charm, as does the push of ripe flavors on the finish.

Refreshingly bright, juicy and light-bodied, with floral and herb highlights and ripe citrus and apple flavors. Drink now.

Fresh from the vineyard, this Pinot Grigio from the 2007 vintage is bright and zesty in tart lemon, lime, apple and vanilla flavors, with a sweeter edge of figs. It finishes with a crisp, honeyed aftertaste.

Clean and zesty, this is a nice cocktail sipper, with rich flavors of green apples, pineapples, peaches, apricots, vanilla and spice. The honeyed finish is brightened with crisp acidity.

If Americans are crazy about Pinot Grigio, itrsquo;s due to wines like this that are so fruity delicious and inexpensive. Whatrsquo;s not to like about scads of spicy green apples, tart limes, and an exotic umami taste of candied ginger? Drink it with almost anything.

Some wines leave you tingling (with happiness or joy at the flavors).This wine satisfies both dimensions. Fruit-forward in character, withflavors of tropical fruit, apples, pears and a nice orange citrus note,balanced with some minerality and a wonderful round finish you can'tignore. There are hints of mango, pear, orange spice, lemon grass andpineapple on the nose. This Pinot Grigio is clean and fruity, notover-powering, with a crisp acid backbone. There's a reason people likePinot Grigio, and the reasons will all be found in your glass. Enjoy
