Overview There aren’t many wines that can say they’ve been banned in the state of Alabama. After Cycles’ label was deemed pornographic in the state, the winery did the only logical thing it could: it sold T-shirts. The shirts, which featured a crossed-out copy of the label and the catchy tag line “taste what they’re missing,” are surprisingly stylish. We might order a few as collectors’ items.

Nose It’s fairly complex for a Pinot Grigio: tropical fruit, citrus, and flowers all make an appearance.

Mouth Some spice, tropical fruit, apples, and a decent hit of acid round out the wine.
