Burrowing Owl Pinot Gris, 2011

Not paper thin.  Not diluted to only resemble wine.  Not so plain and simple and boring as to be inconsequential.  Not like lemon water.  In short, nothing like the pinot gris dross that is all over town as an in-drink and which has become the alias of wine.  This is quite luscious, pear, apple and some tropical fruit notes, a tad forward with residual sugar, decent body, smooth to a fault, and just a wonderful bargain deal at $20.  Compare it with, e.g., the much more readily available Sandhill PG, which is a little cheaper but not nearly as rich and enjoyable.

 

Price: Gifted from a vineyard visitor but $20 on site.

 

Market Liquidity: It has legs.
