Popped and poured. Initial slight whiff of funk/sulfur that went away fairly quickly. Medium-red color, I think a little darker than the 2010 Penner Ash Shea I had last weekend. Strawberries on the nose with some brown sugar - a smell I may have never experienced with PN before. Light-ish mouthfeel. Tangy acidity with sour cherries, mixed berries, and some hints of citrus/orange peel notes. A bit of a short finish, but nicely balanced. Nothing approaching a "wow" wine but interesting, and on the elegant side. If you prefer the modern CA style than you may not like this. For me, 88-89 and a decent QPR. I'm really starting to like Pinots from Oregon.
Board-O, when searching to make sure someone else didn't start a thread for this wine, I saw your comments about the Pinot Gris. Depending on price, if I see one I may give it a shot. Pinot Gris/Grigio is a grape that has never done anything for me, whether from Italy, US, Alsace, etc. I'm looking to find some more interesting whites I enjoy. Thanks for the input.
