Maloof "Where ya PJs at ?" 2019
Willamette Valley, Oregon
80% Skin Contact Pinot Gris, 20% Riesling
It looks like a rosé but is actually an orange wine? stabilized with some acidic Riesling. Which is kind of what being a closeted gay kid at a middle school sleepover feels like. What am I? You don’t need to know, and this wine doesn’t need a category. Semi carbonic maceration and full malolactic fermentation has created a juicy, silky glou glou monster with this one. Flavors of ripe Bing cherry hard candy and high toned minerality from the Riesling. Stop judging yourself. Rest your heart. Drink it on the couch.
