Sees a little skin contact and lees contact Deeply aromatic on the nose in a savory vein with nuanced leather, herb stems, and pear fruit aromas. Bright and fresh on entry with lovely small scaled yet very fresh apple and pear fruit topped with a hint of creamy tangerine rind and well integrated acids. This finishes with fine almost steely minerality and notes of small river pebbles and just a little creaminess. 88pts

Mosby 08 Pinot Grigio


External Review
Vintage: 2008 12/04/2009

Light and refreshing, the 2008 Mosby Pinot Grigio delights with aromas of ripe pear, apple, and vanilla bean. The crisp, citrusy taste is followed by a dry, clean finish with an element of wet stone. Historically, Pinot Grigio originates from the Fruili-Venezia Guilia of Italy. Said to be a mutation of the Pinot Noir grape, the Pinot Grigio seems unsure whether it is a red or white wine grape. Hence, grigio, meaning gray. Bill Mosby was the first winemaker in Santa Barbara county to release Pinot Grigio wine and continues to realize much success with international acclaim.

Bill Mosby has been concentrating on Italian grapes – some as obscure as Lagrein and Teroldego – near Buellton in the Santa Ynez Valley for nearly a quarter century, long before Cal-Ital was incubated. He says that he’s the first in Santa Barbara County to make a Pinot Grigio and here’s evidence why:While the nose at the moment is only giving up some pear and lychee, the mouth is awakened by sprightly bright fruit with citrus tinges. It’s crisp but coats the palate at the same time. However, it finishes dry and lingers for a good while. The wine wouldn’t do badly in a blind tasting with others of their type from Trentino or Friuli in northern Italy, where the variety originates.The vineyard, which is on an alluvial plain of marine origin, consists of limestone and sandy loam. It’s located two miles west of Buellton on Highway 246, hence its name.The listed alcohol is a California wonderful 13 percent, there were only 1,400 cases produced, and the price is very right.
