Montinore Pinot Gris 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Nice, fruity nose of apples and pears
Smooth on the palate, with some weight and depth
Elegant finish with light touches of citrus and honey

Oregon Pinot Gris is an entirely different wine than the Italian Pinot Grigio that has become so popular in recent years. For example, this wine has some weight and depth to it that I normally do not associate with the Italian version. The Italian Pinot Grigios tend to be very light and crisp. Both styles are enjoyable and it is interesting to experience the differences.

I had this at a restaurant and paid $8 for a glass. It paired well with the seafood and made the meal more enjoyable. Raise a glass!
