Top ten wines in the US Press19th June, 2014 by Richard Ross
J California Pinot Gris, 2013
Colette Bancroft in the Tampa Bay Times is also flying the flag for J Vineyards, and in particular their 2013 Pinot Gris. She says this wine delivers a ‘toasty’ quality, surprisingly effective as a “cooling summer sipper”.
“The aroma of baked apple and all that toasty treat implies – spice, butter, brown sugar – tempered by cool ripe pear announces this soft white’s intentions at first sniff. On the tongue, the baked apple is scaled back a bit but the savor is still there. Pear and white peach come in at mid-palate and are closely followed by the snap of green apple.”
