Today's Wine Tasting Note

© Copyright 1999 by Robin Garr. All rights reserved.

Trimbach Trimbach 1996 Alsace Pinot Gris Reserve ($15.49)
Pale straw color. Appetizing musky melon and citric aromas, fresh and full, lead into ripe, juicy fruit flavors that follow the nose, structured with steely acidity. Robust and complex, a wine that my wife declares "is a white trying to be red." She's right! U. S. importer: Seagram Chateau & Estates Wines Co., NYC. (April 10, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Perfect with fresh spring asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and baked with fontina and sharp provolone cheeses.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
