Enthusiast - April 1, 2012 Consistent with the past couple of vintages, this lively, racy take on Pinot Gris comes with delicate spritz, dotting the edges of the glass and tickling the palate. Grapefruit and lime are showcased by bracing acidity, and a mouth-cleansing minerality.
2011 Complicated Red Blend, Central Coast CA. This Syrah, Grenache & Carignane blend is velvety and delicious from your first sip on. Plum and black fruits greet your palate and hold on throughout leading to hints of black pepper and spice. Supple and easy drinking this wine is sure to be a crowd pleaser with or with out food. Especially at $20 a bottle! Made by next generation wine making friends and Napa Valley locals Carlo Trinchero and Josh Phelps under their Taken Wine Co. label.
