La Famiglia Pinot Grigio

The nose is promising, with citrus, honeydew, and some sweet tropical fruit. There’s a nice acidity on the palate, though we would have liked a little more fruit. Nevertheless, for five bucks, this is a fairly priced, simple summer sipper.

VINTJS Pinot Gris

The nose of this Oregon Pinot Gris offers lemon meringue and freshly cut green apples. On the tongue, there’s a slight effervescence, followed by an oiliness. Though dry, the flavor profile takes this wine right up to the edge of sweetness. Overall, this one is true to the varietal and a pleasant, if not particularly exciting, wine.
