Wine Find: 2009 Carmel Road Pinot Gris

March 05, 2011|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

This dry white wine displays full flavors and a creamy texture in a way that finds a middle ground between the style of Alsace and Italian wines from the same varietal. It offers generous flavors of pear, apples, honey and Asian spices. It has much of the appeal of a good chardonnay but without the overwhelming influence of oak. It's all about the fruit.
