Anthony Road Pinot Gris 2016: $17 Good+

The Anthony Road Wine Company Pinot Gris (Finger Lakes, NY) $17 [Good+] is an easy-drinking fruity wine, with a smoky/petrol note that adds to its appeal and (helpfully) reduces its tutti-fruitiness.  This is a good warm weather sipper.

Light lemon in color, aromas of gunflint and smoky petrol strike first, residing over deeper notes of pear, apple and grapefruit.  Medium bodied, off dry to medium dry, with bright acidity and an open-knit mouth feel, balance is good.  Flavors of pear, apple and grapefruit are accented by smoky petrol notes and a touch of earth.  Concentration is good.  The finish is uneventful, with average length.  April 2017
