J Vineyards & Winery Pinot Gris California 2010
Price: Suggested retail is $15.00 (Purchased for $13.00)
Date Tasted: 6/17/2012
From The Winery: 14.0% alcohol, 30,000 cases produced
Impressions/Notes: Straw-colored, with a slight tinge of gold. Exotic notes of citrus, cantaloupe, and honeysuckle, and a bit of lemon hanging in the background. The nose reminded me a lot of a Gewürztraminer. Nicely textured in the mouth. Dry, with generous but far from overwhelming acidity, and ending with a very clean finish. A stunning value! The only downside–the winery has listed this wine as sold out! If you see this wine on the shelf, consider yourself lucky and grab it. Special thanks to the NH Wine-man for turning me on to this wine. I’m looking forward to trying the 2011 vintage.
Rating: Highly Recommended (90-94), 5/5 Value
