Coastline Pinot Grigio '06

Country: USA
Region: California (Monterey)
Thoughts: This wine took me back home, which I'm not entirely sure is a good thing. The nose was quite floral, but the overriding scent seemed to be honey. At the time, it smelled just like a light barley to me, just like you'd find in beer. On the tongue, the barley (or honey) theme continued; though there were other flavors, the honey/barley dominated them rather easily. In all, it reminded me of my favorite beer, Yuengling Lager, a smooth, drinkable beer with a malty aftertaste. But is that what I'm looking for in a wine?
Do-over? For the right price - or when I'm feeling homesick
Final Grade: B-
