California breezin'

Pepi 2005 Pinot Grigio is sweeter than many PGs, perhaps a little off dry, and packed with more fruity aromas and creamy textures than you'd expect from a cheap screw-cap.

The nose is full and robust, offering up healthy whiffs of apricot, apples, and tart grapes. A gulp of Pepi PG tastes creamy and full, its alcohol content on the strong but entirely manageable. thanks to the irrepressible and fun fruit overtones.

In my estimation, one of the best things about a good white wine is the smell of the glass after you've emptied it. Granted, empty glasses are never quite as much fun as full ones, but an empty glass of this wine smells sugary, almost like fruit candy, and makes me wish I had a whole lot more.
