Best known perhaps for its pinot noirs, Sokol Blosser also makes a variety of white wines.
This crisp Oregon pinot gris offers sauvignon blanc-like character, with sharp minerals intermixed with some apple, apricot, and peach characteristics. The finish is simple but delicious, offering hints of fresh, fluffy bread.
For 18 bucks, it’s embarassingly hard not to enjoy.
