    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Seghesio family has grown grapes in Sonoma County since 1895 and in Russian River Valley since 1961. In 1995, Seghesio Family Vineyards began an aggressive move toward producing all estate-owned or -farmed wines that included an extensive vineyard-replanting program. Pinot Grigio was part of that plan to grow intriguing varieties in the best and most appropriate sites. Noted for its unusual grayish/pink clusters and shared lineage with Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio is well-suited to the cooler climate of the Russian River Valley.

    Vineyard Location Estate-owned and -farmed vineyards in Russian River and Dry Creek valleys. Whole cluster pressed, 100% stainless steel tank fermented, left sur lees in tank until bottling to add richness and textural complexity while making pure, bright varietal essences. Flavors of sweet melon and juicy white peaches. Firm acidity with clean finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pinot Grigio can be made in almost any style, but Seghesio nails the dry, elegant approach. This is a terrific wine, mouthwateringly tart, and the lime flavor is satisfying. Unoaked, this is so versatile, you can drink it with almost anything calling for a dry white, or all by itself as an apéritif. Editors' Choice

    Doesn't live up to the WE review and score (89), IMHO. Unable to detect the fruit of "sweet melon" or "white peaches" in the winemaker's notes. Very one-dimensional, overall. Yes, tart and acidic, like WE taster said, but more like a simple Vinho Verde, so no value, even when on sale. Not sure about the "lime," either; the best I could do was "white grapefruit."
