Robert Pinot Grigio
While we were aiming for a more Italian reflection of this beguiling varietal, we tried to also capture its fruitiness and some texture along with the lively, zesty nature of its natural acidity. Produced with not so much as a whiff of oak, this can be a delightful alternative to chardonnay and with its inherent fruitiness, a great substitute for sauvignon blanc.

this was the 1st wine at the store tasting. person pouring wine said that it was like a richer style of italian pinot grigio and a lighter version of the typical california style and they were right. the wine was neither crisp and clean, steely and vibrant like Italy nor fruity, fleshy and orange blossom scented like CA. Instead it sat on the fence, like it couldn't make up its mind what it wanted to be...what it ended up being was a serviceable and ultimately forgettable wine. way better pg's for the price.
sort of grassy and herbal with gravel tones, light apple and an off aroma, sort of a combo of star fruit and stinky feet...i know...weird huh? i thought so too.
beautiful wine with texture and body. some melons and a kiss of grass clippings love the finish color too. great length and really zippy...88-89 in my book.
Extremely good. Fresh, crisp, acidic but not too lemony/limey, balanced
