I've started my pinot gris/grigios summer with a 2011 Joel Gott from Oregon (bottled in Napa) and a 2011 Be Bright from Beringer in Napa. (To be exact: the Joel Gott is a gris and the Be Bright is a grigio.) Both cost me about $12.
Since these are my first of the season I'm not in a position to comment much on them. The Be Bright has orange in the nose, a tad sweet for me generally, and in general on the bland side.
The Joel Gott was decidedly more acidic, like a lot of sauvignon blancs. Perhaps a little lemony. In general it was a little too acidic for my taste.
Neither one is a bad white for the price. They'd be good with seafood. I'm looking forward to trying others.
