Saturday evening we had the 2012 Bell Pinot Gris from Willamette Valley Oregon. This was a lovely wine from the start with a beautiful nose of floral and apricot. As the wine warmed up, the flavors of apricot and grapefruit with a bit of crispness took over. ddeuddeg prepared a nice meal of baked grouper over sliced potatoes and onions that had been sautéed in olive oil and baked with the fish. I prepared some Rainbow Swiss Chard sautéed with some EEVOO and garlic with a finishing touch of Basil Oil and Raspberry Vinegar. This wine softened with the fish and potatoes but still held its own. This is a wine that I would be happy to have in our cellar and to serve to company. It would also be pleasant to have out on the porch on a warm summer night or on a nice fall night—depending on when your fall starts!
May our love be like good wine, grow stronger as it grows older. ~ Old English Toast
