Rex Hill Oregon Pinot Gris, 2006

This wine is more like an Alsace Pinot Gris than an Italian Pinot Grigio. It is big, full-bodied and delicious--a white wine for red wine lovers. It has a classic Pinot Gris nose of minerals, hard butterscotch candy and ripe pears. Deep and serious. On the palate, it's full bodied and viscous. Full range of flavors on mid-palate and finish. Ripe enough to drink on its own; would also be very good with garlic shrimp or a similar dish.

Rex Hill is better known for its Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, but this Pinot Gris, at $13.99, is a good value.
