BearBoat Sonoma County California 2008 Pinot Gris, $6.99-$16.99, 88 points, is another nice (Sorry, I know the word nice bothers some of you, but get over it.) wine from BearBoat.
I bought this wine last summer at the Derry, NH liquor store, and I'm am not sure if this wine is still available.
That being said: find it!
Golden color, warm aroma of honeydew melon with hints of lichee and Granny Smith apples all find their way onto your palate on a light to medium body, crisp and refreshing as a good white wine on a hot day should be. The finish is tangy with a hint of apricot.
Pinot Gris/Grigio should be drunk "young", but I doubt that this wine has suffered from its bottle time. At any rate, should I see this wine's latest bottling, I'll be buying.
Man, for $6.99 you couldn't possibly go wrong.
BearBoat Pinot Gris has plenty of food friendly acidity, but I just sipped it by itself.
