With so much mediocre Pinot Grigio coming from California, it is rather refreshing to find some great versions from the pacific northwest that I would gladly recommend. I've been mightily impressed with Oregon's trend toward racy, dry Pinot Gris, and those are the ones that I often recommend, but this entry from Washington, planted on 'own vines' or vinifera rootstocks is genuinely impressive.
Chateau Ste Michelle 2014 Pinot Gris Columbia Valley ($12) crisp but voluptuous with medium to full-bodied spiced green apple, pear and ginger flavors that go on and on without the assistance of obvious new oak. And at this price, it's a steal. (89)
