2010 Cupcake Vineyards Pinot Grigio

This Pinot grigio has a nice crisp bouquet, with grassiness, pears, and slate--a dream on a warm sunny day.

Pears and slate show in the flavors, too. We tasted a nice sour apple that livened up the mouth. The wine displays good acidity and plenty of it. There seems to be a bit of a lack of balance, though, on the back end. We were left with a flat one-dimensional finish. Alcohol left us fiery--too overpowering to overlook. Aside from being a nice affordable dry white to cook with, we would pass on a glass.

Body: Light
Approx. Cost: $10
Food Pairing: Cook with it!


Have to agree with you! This Sauv Blanc is flat and too sour-sweet like a candy. We tasted this wine in the summer at a friends party and most people were fine with it....
