THE REVIEW

You have not experienced the full potential of Pinot Grigio until you have enjoyed this delicious white from Oregon.
    Outside of Italy, Pinot Grigio is commonly known as Pinot Gris and in the valleys of Oregon produces a lush, rich example of this summertime favorite.
    For value and quality, our Pinot Grigio pick this year is, hands down, the 2007 Kings Ridge Pinot Gris. This Oregon beauty shows a wonderful nose of tropical fruit, ripe Bartlett pears and citrus oil. In the mouth, honeyed flavors of apple, pear, melon, and mineral notes are given depth by its crisp acidity and lengthy finish.
    We couldn't belive that this wine saw no oak during fermentation as it has a richness about it that was quite impressive. Not to mention, the wine has a wonderful nutty finish that keeps you reaching for another glass. It is round and full with a very appealing, generous style.
    Share this gem with your Santa Margherita friends who will be fans after the first sip. To that end, Kings Ridge is a perfect match for salmon, shellfish, grilled chicken and slightly aged and semi-firm cheeses. Enjoy! Read More »
