Review: *** $ Camelot Pinot Grigio, California, Non-Vintage = BEST VALUE

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

By way of background, opening thoughts:  The Camelot Vineyards & Winery line of wines, established in 1993, hails from O'Neill Vintners in Parlier, California, and represents a wide range of California regions in multiple varietals at a bargain price.  Chief winemaker is Mark Rasmussen.  O'Neill Vintners other brands include Pepi, Tin Roof Cellars and Moscato Allegro.   This wine sample was provided by the winery's representative.

Original tasting and review : This is Camelot Pinot Grigio, California, Non-Vintage, finished at 12.5% alcohol.

In the glass: Clear with hints of honey and olive.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft cinnamon white fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be soft and pleasing.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft and pleasing as expected, with clean, gently sweet fruit and light overtones of honey.  Finish moves up in tone, with some citrus and clear alcohol.

In summary: Overall, rates three  stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, yielding a best value.
