A to Z Oregon Pinot Gris 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Layers of light citrus aromas and wet stones on the nose

Crisp and light on the palate

Dry finish of grapefruit and minerals

This wine is light in color and light in character. Holding a full glass up to a white background, the color of the wine almost disappears. Crisp and dry on the palate and finish, it layers nicely and pairs well with light appetizers and summer fare.

While it should run you around $14 or so, make sure you get the most recent vintage so you drink this as young as possible. And raise a glass!

I recently sampled this wine at my local wine store. I didn't like it at all. It left a bitter almost metallic after taste.
