2016 Bayshore Pinot Grigio

This California Pinot Grigio is a very good crisp white wine.  Slightly sweeter than the Italian version but really appropriate for the warm weather.  Melon, grapefruit flavors that pop when its slightly lower than room temperature.  Chilled takes away the flavor so take your choice.

A red Italian grape variety that, as of 2000, was the third most-planted red grape variety in Italy.  This grape has luscious flavors of ripe cherry and dark blackberry that harmonize with notes of sweet spice and vanilla.  This is from the Central Coast of California

This week I start my series on wine Clubs/Subscriptions with a a company called "Bright Cellars".  A monthly wine club that caters to your taste with a very unique quiz that takes your data and suggests 4 quality wines.  Then after you have drunk a bottle or two and rate the wine you have drunk.  There is a new set of recommendations.  Here's what I got.
