Firefly Ridge Pinot Gris 2013

I love the idea of serendipity.  Merriam Webster defines serendipity as “luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for.”  While I don’t believe I can live my life relying on it alone, I do try to keep my eyes peeled for it’s occurrence.  I think I may have discovered one.

After jotting down my tasting notes when experiencing a particular wine, I place them in a nifty little file at my desk.  Of course, other items come across my desk from time to time.  In this instance, I seem to have had a Reese’s peanut butter & chocolate type of moment.  You see, stuck to my notes for this selection was a post-it on which was written the titles of two popular Latin songs.  So this is a serendipitous wine & canciones moment.  Enjoy!

 

 

 

Oenophilogical_FireflyRidgePinotGris2013Winemaker:  Firely Ridge
Varietal:  Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio)
Vintage:  2013
Appellation:  Central Coast, CA
Price:  $15.99

Notes:  The color of pale lemon, the wine echoed citrus in it’s bouquet.  At 13.5% alcohol, this Firefly Ridge selection was light-bodied with bright acidity.  Flavors ran along the tropical lines with a core of citrus throughout and notes of banana and mango.  Near the finish I caught some grass and white pepper as well.  Overall, not a bad Pinot Gris to sip while enjoying some fun music.  I think it might be over-priced at $15.99, so look for it on sale at your local Safeway.
