Adelsheim Pinot Gris

Interesting wine a few days ago, a 2009 Adelsheim Pinot Gris from Oregon's Willamette Valley.  Greenish yellow in the glass and a tart nose of green grapes and lemon zest.  Grapey taste with a musky dryness to it.  Medium body and a fair amount of acid.  A little short in the finish. 

There was a pan seared trout fillet with some zucchini to round things out. Nice match with this wine.  I don't normally buy or drink Pinot Gris, but this one came recommended from a distributor.  Not a great wine, but drinkable and good with the food, and sometimes that's all one needs.  Good bargain also at $15.  13% alcohol.
