Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Pinot Grigio from California opens with a fragrant ripe green melon and lemon bouquet with a hint of pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, round and soft. The flavor profile is an off-dry ripe green melon with notes of Anjou pear with hint of lemon and mango. The finish is remains off-dry and fades away nicely. This easy to drink box wine is a very good everyday offering. Keep one around this summer for guests when they pop in on a hot day. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our light bodied Pinot Grigio seems to go with just about anything and make it all just a bit more fun. With aromas of pear and Meyer lemon, it's got a crisp, fresh, light and tangy style.

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
