I am going to bring forward to Oenophilogical the posts about wine that I put up on my other, more general blog. Here is the first archival piece – originally posted in February of 2010.
While I don’t have the opportunity to drink all the fine wines I would like, I enjoy looking for – and finding – good values at very reasonable price points. Tonight, it was a Pinot Grigio. Here are my notes — COMPLETELY AMATEUR OPINIONS — on what I thought about this one.
Wine: Pinot Grigio – California Collection
Notes: I found the nose to be extremely light with floral notes. The core flavors for me were nectarine and honeysuckle with starfruit and a nice little bit of grapefruit on the finish. Acidity on this one seems medium. As a result, I don’t know how it would stand up to food and spices. At this price, though, it’s worth a try if you like Pinot Grigios.
Important: I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur. I have taste buds, however, and know what I like. Please do not consider my thoughts to be an endorsement or diminution of any particular wine. You should always judge for yourself as likes, dislikes, and taste are very subjective.
