What We’re Drinking – MacMurray Ranch Pinot Gris 2016

The color is a pretty light gold. The nose show pear and mango, with hints of pepper in the background. It shows round and soft on the palate, with ripe pear, hints of mango, and the lightest touch of sweet lemon. The finish is fruity, with a jalapeño tingle around the edges. It is a very pleasant glass of wine, that starts simple but shows surprising complexity.  Drink with fried oysters. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
