Wine Profile

90 Points, Rich Cook, WineReviewOnline - "A refresher: When I mention 'minerality' in a wine, I'm usually referring to something akin to what you would get in a cold glass of Pellegrino -- it's usually a taste of granite or dust that adds depth to a wine. It's a term derided by some, and the reasons are myriad, but I'm sticking with it as a descriptor since all I can do for you is tell you what I sense in a particular glass. Otherwise, what good am I? This particular glass, a blend of Anderson Valley and Sonoma County fruit, shows vibrant lemon, lime, peach and pear, with a lingering finish where some of that stony character comes through clearly. And so, in a way, we're back to where we started -- a refresher."
Winemaker Notes
Closely related to Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio takes its name from the color of the grape skins, which range from copper to gray. It is thought to have originated from a mutation of the Burgundian variety Pinot Noir, discovered by monks in the 14th century who collected and propagated the grape from just a few cuttings.
Food Pairing Notes
Perfect as a pre-dinner sipper or with fresh salads containing prosciutto, ripe cantaloupe and mild cheese. great with all types of seafood, picnics and at tailgate parties.
