Dec. 23, 2007 A to Z Wineworks Pinot Gris 2006

Personal Notes

from winemaker's website:
Rich and ripe. The color of the 2006 Pinot Gris is yellow gold with beautiful flashes of emerald. Powerful aromatics are redolent of ripe citrus fruits, acacia flowers, tropical fruits (mango, papaya and kiwi), lychee, powdered sugar, honeysuckle, nectarines and pineapple. A concentrated wine with ripe acidity. The finish rolls seamlessly off the mid-palate and lasts forever. The lasting impression is a wine of great ripeness and opulence balanced by wonderful juiciness and succulence. The 2006 Pinot Gris will drink wonderfully for the next two years.

winemaker's notes:

Number 60 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

"Crisp, authoritative, dry and racy... very fresh and refreshing, beautifully rendered."
-Wine Enthusiast

Bright, fruity, crisp style. Pretty aromas of fresh young pear, honey, starfruit, honeydew, and flower. Bold and crisp mouth feel with generous flavors of pear, mineral, melon, and spice, interwoven with well-balanced acidity. The Pinot Blanc, picked very ripe, adds emollient mouthfeel, and contributes to the Alsatian style. While the Muscat adds flowery sweetness, the barrel fermented portions of the Auxerrois add a kiss of toast and richness.

The quintessential match with salmon. Wonderful with cheese, shellfish, chicken, salads and white fish.

The Limited Release Pinot Noir is rich in both color and fragrance.

A Customer - California
This wine was so delicious that I am buying my first case of wine! I have never liked a wine enough to buy a case of it!

A Customer - White Mountains, NH
YUM!

A Customer - Beautiful Cleveland, Ohio
My first Malbec! First sip seemed a bit vinigary, but last sip was excellent. I think I needed to decant, so I'll take the blame. I was extremely happy with this wine @ the $12 level. It's a 89-90 in my book.

A Customer - Colorado
I try to buy wines that are in the $10 range and I will have to say this hits a homerun. I purchased a couple of bottles each for my sales team as Christmas gifts.

A Customer - Atlanta
For the Malbec fans out there, this is definately a great value. Strong initial berry and fruity flavors with a smooth finish. The strong tannins are not too powerful but should mellow a little more with time. At ten dollars a bottle, it is an excellent value and a wonderful wine.

Personal Notes

Someone else's review:

A pleasant wine with taosty aromas of light peach, grapefruit and orange blossom. Similar on the palette but also nuanced with melon, quince, cream and a heavy chalky minerality. The finish is very bitter almond, almost too much so. Nice, but not a cocktail wine. Try to eat something with it to balance the almond finish.


This is a wonderful sparkling Italian wine. I try to keep a few bottles on hand just for a light and refreshing drink with friends and family. An unbelievable price. This is a bit sweeter than most sparkling wines but not too sweet. Slight lemony flavor. A perfect summer porch drink.

Personal Notes

From random blog:
As I was doing my "photoshoot" for this blog, I opened the wine to pour into our two glasses and went to work shooting some pix. The entire dining room filled with this wonderful, strong fruit scent while I took shots. I started salivating anticipating what the wine would taste like. The color was really dark purple - almost like ink.

The taste was bitter first and tasted a bit like Robitussin cough syrup, then very spicy and peppery and dry. Slight fruit with a short finish ended it.
I was disappointed based on how wonderful the initial room-filling aroma was. The taste didn't hold up to what I smelled. It definitely tasted better after having sat open for half an hour. It's a good wine for the price and would probably do best as a drinkable one to have on hand for casual entertaining. I bet it is a wine that will definitely improve with age.

Personal Notes

winemaker's notes:

Grape Varieties: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carmenère, 5% Syrah, 5% Malbec

The color is an impressive intense ruby. The nose explodes with fruit: cherry, strawberry, raspberry, plum, light mint and black pepper. The oak and the toast of the barrels do not dominate the fruit and bring delicious aromas of coffee, tobacco, cinnamon and crème brûlée. In the mouth, the wine is wonderfully concentrated and juicy. The finish shows intense fruit of cherry and strawberry with a nice touch of licorice. Well balanced, without any heaviness, this velvety and luscious wine is delicious to taste.

Personal Notes

From Wine.com:

winemaker's notes:

Deep crimson in color with flavors of fresh-picked, ripe red berries. Smooth oak combines with a touch of spice for a spectacular Shiraz." Rigorous parcel selection." Grapes picked at optimum ripeness." Destemming and crushing on arrival at the winery." Fermentation of the fruit for about one week, with pumping over twice daily." At the end of the alcoholic fermentation some of the wine is put into barrel to complete its malolactic fermentation." Raised for 4 months in barrel and tank." Ideal with grilled red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full bodied cheeses.
