Francis Ford Coppola Pinot Grigio California Bianco 2011
Grown in the cool climate of Monterey County, ideal conditions for this delicate grape, our Pinot Grigio is delightfully refreshing. The grapes are picked in the early morning and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures, bringing out top notes of apricots and tangerines, followed by flavors of pear, green apple and grapefruit with underlying mineral accents.
There are so many good Pinots out there - sorry, this vintage, not so much..
Two and a half glasses
Went to a tasting, tried this, and thought it the best Pinot Grigio I've tried. Ordered two bottles. Will have to sample again but I don't think I'll be disappointed.
This is my favorite pinot grigio out there! just love how smooth and light it is, with a hint of citrus.
Too sweet for my tastes.

A fresh, lively expression of stone fruit, white peach, honeydew melon, floral and mineral notes. Full-bodied, supple and creamy, ending with a dash of nutmeg. Drink now through 2014.

This statewide blend stands up well against far more expensive Chardonnays. Itrsquo;s rich and crisp in acidity, with tropical fruit, pear and peach flavors, as well as a generous coating of oak and buttercream. Easy to find, with nearly 11,000 cases produced.

Vibrant and full of verve, Bianco Pinot Grigio is perfect for any occasion. It has intense floral aromas that mingle with cool melon and tropical fruit, and a light crisp mouthfeel, which is complemented by fresh peach, ripe pear, and pink grapefruit flavors.
