Review: *** $ Starlight Ridge Pinot Grigio, California, 2010 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for bargain California Pinot Grigio.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Pinot grigio is normally known for its friendly, early nature.  In this case, I am sampling a version that has two years since vintage date. 

Original tasting and review : This is Starlight Ridge Pinot Grigio, California, 2010.

In the glass: Light yellow with deep honey tones.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, bright fruit elements.  From the aroma, seems like this will be easy-going, with some mineral tones.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft, easy, full, fruit-laden mouth-feel, with a nice finishing stretch of minerals and soft peach fruit.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value at its bargain price.
