Taste profile from the winemaker: None found.

ABC Wines review: A light yellow-gold in color, this wine has unusual blend of aromas - peach, almond, honey and spice. The palate is sweeter than one might expect but without much fruit character and with little acidity for balance. The finish is fairly long but lacks depth or complexity. Our score: Had we tasted this wine without the label, we would have never guessed it was a pinot grigio, but instead some obscure varietal. Or maybe it simply hasn't aged well. Regardless, it's not very good. Well Below Average, nearly Inferior.

Winery website: None found. Harlow Ridge is a brand of the Bronco Wine Company.
