2008 - $50
What a gorgeous bottle! I’ve been ordering Friuli-V for my birthday dinners the past few years, but haven’t had the chance to taste the great Gravner’s work till now. Not overly oxidative, yet intensely colored, layered, and sturdy. Went head-to-head with the best, fatty, bacon-like, toro of my life! — 6 days ago
Typical Cab Franc bell pepper notes along with tobacco, dark cherry, plum, toffee, cranberry, and oak. Bright and tart with lots of fruit, but also buttery smooth. Medium tannins, medium alcohol, and medium plus to high acid. Should be a good match with tomato based sauces, but also a nice sipper for medium cheese and sliced meats. — 15 hours ago
Summer of Italian Whites. Another great example of an Italian white wine value from a well known producer. Primary aromas of lemon candy, ripe white peach, yellow pear, river stones, honeysuckle and tarragon. Pallet is white peach, lemon and slivered almond with an oily, creamy texture. This has more body and complexity than cheaper Pinot Grigios, but the finish was a little short for my liking. Still recommended for its QPR.

Sea breeze, white flowers, minerals, a squeeze of lemon. Utterly delicious. I dare say this is the best Pinot Grigio I’ve had to date. — 5 days ago
Burst of acetic acid, great tamed tannins at the end, mulch nose, candied/dried orange peel, brackish water?
Beautiful copper red/orange tint that reminds me of fall. — 17 days ago
Wonderful with a Linguini and white clam sauce pasta. Eating at Napolis in Grapevine. Great acidity for a hot day — 9 days ago
