90+ Cellars Pinot Grigio 2012

I was first introduced to 90+ Cellars at an event late last year, which was hosted by the Boston Wine Expo.  I was an immediate fan of their Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford 2012 and have been enjoying a glass here and there over the last few months.

My old roommate, Lauren was in town recently so we decided to invite the girls over for a dinner of Roasted Chicken with Feta & Olive Quinoa Salad so I thought a Pinot Grigio would be a perfect pairing.  The 90+ caught my eye so I thought we could give it a whirl.

The 90+ Pinot Grigio is almost transparent in color with just a tinge of white honey.  Lovely on the nose with aromas on citrus and calming honeysuckle.  This is a happy light wine that surprises as it hits all your tastebuds with a swift pow of melon, pear and tangerine – it’s really quite delightful.  The finish is smooth and soft.  The perfect fun, dinner with girls wine.  I really wish I had purchased more bottles for the evening.

A really great every day wine at a good price of just $15.
