It's been two weeks since my last batch of wine reviews and I've sampled some interesting and very enjoyable wines over that period.
Here is my periodic quick review of wines I've been drinking.
Oregon and Washington make some beautiful whites. Some are going to be a bit acidic for many palates but not this one. You won't find a nicer Washington or Oregon Pinot Gris for the price. (Boomtown 2009 Washington State Pinot Gris, $12, Recommended)
This is really a nice glass of wine for the price point. I enjoyed the light grapefruit and lime and mild acidity. This is a really good value buy that shouldn't be hard to find at all. (2010 Woodbridge Pinot Grigio, $7.99, Trade Sample, Recommended)
Just by chance, I've had two different Spatburgunders in the last few weeks and both were surprisingly good - light Pinot Noir with a nice cherry flavor and quite smooth. This wine retails at approximately $18. Try a German Pinot Noir or Spatburgunder as a Highly Recommended wine.
I've read so many wine reviews where writers extol a wine's silky finish unsure if I've ever had the same experience. Now, I can say I have had a wine with a truly silky texture in your mouth and down the pipe. Lange is one of Oregon's absolute premier producers and, admittedly, one of my favories. (Lange 2005 Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir, $60, Very Highly Recommended)
