I got this wine for its nice greenish color, area of origin, and its low price. I opened it on a sunny Sunday afternoon, quaffed a glass or two, and put off writing notes until the next day. Yesterday, I used some of it in a dish for dinner, but put off tasting it in order to enjoy the Oregon Pinot Noir I had opened to go with said dish. By the time I got around to focusing on this wine, my wife had finished it off. So… my observations are a little less thorough than usual, but the wine is apparently not awful.
The wine showed typical Pinot Grigio flavors of pale green straw, lemon / lime, maybe light pear, and (my only complaint) a slight aspirin flavor. If I had the choice, I’d likely spend the extra buck and get the Barrymore (same year and classification of origin, and which I think has more flavor and substance) instead, but this was pretty good for the price.
