Meridian Pinot Grigio ’09

Originally published 6/4/2011 at Blogarhythms.

Summer is here, so nice crisp white wines are what many of us will be looking for as we seek to cool off from the heat.  Thus, I tried the ’09 Pinot Grigio from Meridian.  The selection is just what the varietal should be – light and enjoyable.  A bit more fruity than the European style PGs, but that suits my palate just fine.

Vineyard:     Meridian Vineyards
Varietal:       Pinot Grigio
Vintage:       2009
Appellation: California
Price:          $8.99

Notes:     Meridian – a solid performer in my book – has done a good job with this Pinot Grigio.  It’s light with lime, peach and nectarine fruit flavors.  Nicely viscous for a PG but not in any way heavy.  There was also, I thought,  a sort of smoky spicy note on the finish that I couldn’t quite put my finger (or taste buds) on.  I liked it.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.
