After work wine from Italy

Pinnacoli Primitivo di Manduria 2008 –

Type: Primitivo / Red
Region: Puglia, Italy
Year: 2008
Price range: $$ ($15 – $30)

I call this the NOT wine. Not too dry, Not that smooth, Not a long lasting finish, however not a bad drinking wine. Not sure if this would be considered full bodied as described on the bottle. However, with all that said, this was a good wine and far from average. Pair this with a plate of brie and salami for a pleasing snack.

Wow, what a strong wine and for the price it’s really hard to beat. However, this can be very overpowering for some drinkers and very hard to drink by itself. Make sure you have some hearty food with to tame the wild tannin. Perfect for those long hard work days when you need to forget the previous 10 hours.

J vineyards & winery 2013 California Pinot Gris

This J vineyards & winery 2013 California Pinot Gris offers pale yellow and floral and perfume aroma. On the palate, white peach, green pear and nectarine. Also it has honey type of sweetness. I would say semi sweet side but its refreshing and no after taste. This is one of my kick back and relax wine. I prefer to have this J Pinot Gris itself. If I drink it inside I would chill it little colder than normally or put in an ice basket and bring to outside. Sip while watching sunset or chilling after hard work.
