it's been a while since my last post. the baldwinegeek and the comely brunette spent a week on a beach, soaking up sun and drinking some very nice wines. i'll be playing catch up over the course of the next week. the first night of the week long getaway started with this very nice bottle of pinot grigio. nose was nice with apple and citrus aromas. crisp taste of pineapple, some citrus, mineral and a long finish of green apples. the alcohol content was a little higher for a pinot grigio at 14%. but this didn't deter from the taste. it added a slight warmth. there was a nice acidic bite to the finish as well. a very nice start to the relaxing, summertime atmosphere of a vacation. priced at about $18, i think this one is well worth the price.
