Robert Sinskey Los Carneros 2011 Pinot Gris

Robert Sinskey Los Carneros 2011 Pinot Gris, $22.94-$29.99, 89 points, poured into the glass as a light gray with hints of tarnished copper.
While cold, the aroma began as pear and grapefruit, but upon warming, hints of honeydew and pine nuts appeared, all of which carried over onto the palate with a hint of apple on good acidity, adding complexity to this near medium bodied dry white wine.
I tend to like my white wines crisp, but this one fell short for me; however the finish was rather sleek and had a good tart gingery climax.
Paired perfectly with my fried Maine lobster in butter.
The bottle is quite beautiful with a glass stopper, and I intend to use it as a vase.

  1. Haven't had the straight Pinot gris, only the Abraxas which is a blend and is delightful.
    The photos on the Sinskey website are beautiful...especially on the wines/POV page (second from last) might appreciate them.

    1. Vinogirl, I did appreciate them! Love the Black and Whites too!
