Awful, truly one of the worst wines I have had that hadn’t turned to vinegar. I tried 2 different bottles just to make sure it wasn’t a bad bottle or just me. King’s Estate has a fantastic Pinot Noir, but this Pinot Gris is horrid.
Seriously, do not buy this particular wine. I cannot understand how one company can make 2 wines on the opposite ends of the spectrum, but as much as their Pinot Noir is great, their Pinot Gris is terrible.
I poured this wine out and I suspect you would too.
This is probably the best all in one Sangria that you will ever find. It is super smooth and sweet.
5/5 stars on the Linda Scale.
I love opening a bottle of this Sangria, peeling an orange, and pouring the cool liquid over the sweet fruit. The orange soaks up some of the alcohol making it easy to finish a few glasses. When you are ready eat the fruit and let the sweet juices numb your lips.
It is such a great experience. I am not sure I would serve this at dinner, but after dinner or just out on the patio with friends, definitely.
The following notes are short and tend to be quickly taken after a quick sampling in the evening.
D’Autrefois, I didn’t take any notes on this one, but I think I rather liked it. There are no negatives about this one that I can remember. I kind of wish I had another bottle to try right now. On the other hand it isn’t memorable. I am going to take that as a very good sign. A drinking wine that isn’t too much of anything.
I am downgrading this wine from a non-memorable 4 to a 2. The tart cherry flavor in it does not make this wine a crowd favorite. I took this wine to a party very excited to share it and it did not go over well.
I myself could only manage to drink a single glass. This was a very disappointing wine.
