King EstateSignature Collection Oregon Pinot Gris2007
Sweet and light, like a sunny spring day. This wine is nearly colorless, with a nose like almond flowers and daffodils. It's smooth, even, and well-balanced. Lovely.
Price: $17 (sale; regular price about $20)

Unrelated to this post - I recently picked up a copy of Andrew Carmellini's cookbook, Urban Italian. In it a recipe for pasta with grapes macerated in red wine with sausage. It needed some slight tweeking to suit my palate but was otherwise excellent and was enjoyed with a fabulous wine called Saldo, by Orin Swift...a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah. I think you might enjoy it, given what I have read on your blog...

Hey, David, thanks for your nice note! I'll look up that book. The Saldo looks great. My guess is it packs a wallop, given the combo of Zin and Petite Sirah. For our readers, find that Saldo here: http://www.orinswift.com/wines/saldo.php.
