Overview When we think of Pinot Grigio, the word that comes most often to mind is “pretty.” These wines are generally not powerful or overly complex; instead, they charm with easy fruit flavors and floral aromas. This pleasant wine, from one of Washington State’s largest wineries, is no exception. We wouldn’t recommend cellaring it or trying to pair it with powerful foods, but it will make for a wonderful apéritif.

Nose It’s pretty and subtle, with a sharp lemon quality, as well as apples and flowers.

Mouth It could use a bit more acid (it seems almost sweet without it), but the green apple flavors are delicious.
