    He said: Pale lemon color. Strong fruity bouquet (that was almost floral). Fruity with a sweetness that dominates the taste and a rising acidity in the finish. No crispness I expected in Pinot Grigio. However, at $5.40 it’s inexpensive and very drinkable with its smooth sweetness.

    She said: Pale straw color. Fairly strong fruity aroma. Flavor less fruity and slightly sweet with medium body and no bitterness or tartness. Smooth and pleasant but lacks crispness. Still, very drinkable, and a bargain at $5.40
