Rex Hill Vineyards 1999 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris ($15.99)
Clear pale gold. Pleasant and delicately complex, melon and citrus and an intriguing hint of green olive in the aroma. Full and ripe, seems soft at first, but there's plenty of crisp acidity in the finish. US Importer: (May 13, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: Fine with smoked salmon with roasted poblano peppers in scrambled eggs.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
