Benton Lane Willamette Valley 2009 Pinot Gris

Benton Lane Willamette Valley 2009 Pinot Gris, $13.59-$15.99, 84 points, is very clear with some grey tones, the aroma makes me a bit suspicious, having a (not pleasant) funky grapefruit aroma, good acidity carried on a light-plus body and citrus flavors, ending fair on a ginger finish.
As is often the case with a borderline-spoiled bottle of wine, I'm not happy with my review, but it is what it is until I get a chance to find a more recent vintage and try again. As it is, not a recommended white wine.
