2005 Chateau Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris, Columbia Valley ($13)

WINE FIND

May 03, 2006|By MICHAEL DRESSER

Out of a sextet of white wines from this reliable Washington state producer, this was the best value. It's a full-bodied, dry wine with an appealing, creamy texture. It offers a complex-for-its-price blend of lemon, apple, spice and mineral flavors. All in all, it's a worthy New World echo of Alsace pinot gris. Serve with salmon.
