Acrobat Oregon Pinot Gris, 2013

This is a lower-priced offering from King Estate, maker of very good Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Wine & Spirits Magazine rated it a Best Buy, and Wine Enthusiast named it #36 among its best 100 wine buys of the year. For about $12 a bottle, it is a wine to seek out.

Deep yellow. Pinot Gris rather than Grigio in style. Apples, ripe pears, flowers and lemon. The Wine & Spirits reviewer tasted lemon cream richness and I agree. Good acidity to balance the ripe fruit. And will probably improve over the next year or two.
