2009 Firesteed Cellars Oregon Pinot Gris
We were discussing movies this weekend and War Horse came up as one that generated polarized reviews: How can Disney create a World War I drama that tugs at ones heartstrings? Strolling the isles for a new white wine to try, the label for the 2009 Firesteed Oregon Pinot Gris recalled the imagery that Disney employed so I had to see if the wine would yield the same diversity of opinion.
This week's pick can be found on the regular store shelves under "Other Whites" for $12.99.
What Others Thought
After getting over the confusion of Pinot Gris versus Pinot Grigio, some remained confused feeling that this wine "didn't exhibit much of anything". There was an expectation that this would be a more stylized wine but some felt it lacked "body" and that the flavors were just "too subtle" to enjoy.
