Tasting - "Cellar 8 Pinot Grigio"
Variety: Pinot Grigio
Region: Sonoma County, California
Price: $13 regular / $4.95 close-out sale
Winery Review: The 2009 Cellar No. 8 Pinot Grigio opens with inviting aromas of honeysuckle flower, white peach and fresh pineapple. This refreshing wine exudes flavors of melon, honey and lemon zest, with subtle hints of spice and a crisp, clean finish. It would be a perfect accompaniment to fresh salads, creamy avocado soup, or served as an aperitif.
My Review: I found it very difficult to distinguish many of the white wines to a significant degree. It had very nice golden yellow color with a clean fresh aroma. It was very smooth and crisp.
