2008 Boomtown Pinot Gris Columbia Valley

Boomtown Pinot Gris

The lineup of Dusted Valley Boomtown wines is among my favorite wine values. In fact, Wine and Spirits recently recognized the Boomtown line as one of the top global value brands. Why? At $10-15 a bottle, these wines are truly a great deal.  Last week I bought a bottle of the Boomtown Pinot Gris for just $10. Pretty good for a wine rated 87 points by Wine Enthusiast.

This Pinot Gris produced with grapes from the Columbia Valley is a light, crisp, refreshing white. My palate generally doesn’t care for the powerful lemon flavors so often found in domestic Pinot Gris. While this one does offer a bit of a tart finish, much like that from Sweet Tart candy, it is balanced by honeydew flavors. This is a refreshing wine to turn to on a sunny day.

We enjoyed this wine with the appetizer portion of an Italian themed dinner. Looking for ideas on what food to pair with your Boomtown Pinot Gris? See my blog, deVine Table for inspiration.
