2011 Rose'N'Blum Pinot Grigio

Today a 2011 Rosenblum pinot grigio from Sonoma that ran me about $12.

Of the handful of pinot g's I've drunk thus far this spring, this would be my favorite.  A nice balance of sweetness and acidity, not as tart as the last one.

It also has some interesting notes.  I initially thought rose water, maybe influenced by the bottle.  The label claims lemon sorbet and orange sherbet (a classic example of silly label writing, as if anyone can tell the difference between a sorbet and a sherbet note).  But I would agree that this is very citrusy, close to drinking a sorbet from a bottle.

All in all a nice pinot grigio.  I bet it would go great with shrimp.  Maybe even some cheeses.
