Quick Review: Barboursville Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2004

US, Virginia, Barboursville Vineyards, Pinot Grigio 2004
- // Crisp/Fruity // Lemon // Petrol, Grape, Grapefruit // Light

We made a mistake, didn't notice it was so old. Too old for Pinot Grigio. The flavors were not at all balanced, a very aggressive attack without much fruit. Sat very heavy on the tongue.


  1. Actually I'm not that fond of Barboursville even when it's not old. However, the critics like it, so I'm sure it's better than I give it credit for. The tasting room is not a great experience, so it colors my view of all the wine too.

    1. You're totally onto something about the tasting room experience. We were "rushed" once at a Finger Lakes winery and it's soured my taste for their wine now. The experience is so critical to the level of enjoyment we get from wine.
