2005 PEPPERWOOD GROVE PINOT GRIGIO



Wednesday, 5/9, Little Rock, AR
I wasn't going to buy this bottle but after talking to my wine connect, who assured me that Pepperwood Grove wines had gotten better, I took a shot. What's $5.99 in the scheme of things right? Folks I'm on a roll. I've been finding some really good values on some tasty wines of late and this 05 Pepperwood Grove Pinot Grigio by Sebastiani is another example. Very light, pale color in the glass was observed, almost translucent with aromas of citrus and fruit, (tangerine and mango come to mind), filling my nose. Tastes of honeysuckle and blended citrus was very evident with a nice, balanced acidity taking me to the finish. Drinking this wine was almost like drinking air, but in a good way! Very dry while at the same time being very fruitful in taste. At the $5.99/bottle I had to give this one 4 Corkscrews for its taste and its excellent value. I plan on reviewing Pepperwood Grove's Chardonnay in the next week or so and am looking forward to seeing if it has improved as well. In the meantime, try this pinot grigio and check out the Sebastiani/Pepperwood Grove film site if you get a chance. Very cool! Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!

my bottle is dark in color and has an odd minty taste. Must not have been stored correctly.
