2019 J Vineyards California Pinot Gris


We sampled a bottle of the J Pinot Gris the other night with grilled salmon and a few pieces of sushi, and it was a great combination. J Vineyards has been producing some good wines for a few decades now, and this is another fine example of their skill!

The nose is full of tropical fruit with a slight citrus breeze wafting through. The flavors are a mix of pineapple, peach and lemon zest, with a touch of spicy mineral at the end. The finish is clean and crisp with the taste of tropical fruit lingering on the palate. The alcohol content is 13.6%, and Norm’s score is 90.

The J Pinot Gris was a great pair for our sushi and salmon, and would make a good companion for almost any seafood dish. If you like Pinot Grigio, you will enjoy this one!

Score: 90

Price: $14 – $18
