USA, Pinot Grigio, The Birdman, Big House Wines, California, 2010

N/ Quite fruity and stone drenched. On some wafts, slightly reminiscent of a Riesling actually. Mossy, wet, river rocks. Steeped hay. Comparatively complex nose vs. most $10ish California Pinot Grigio.

T/ Full mouthfeel. Heavy weight for the varietal. Coating honeysuckle. Low acid. Round, soft finish, with just enough minerality to trigger happy sipping. Needs more acid.

Winemaker = Georgetta Dane

Price = $9.99

Rating = B
