Hector Pinot Blanc 2015: $20 Good

The Hector Wine Company Pinot Blanc (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015: $20 [Good] is a crisp white wine with fruity flavors of modest intensity and so-so balance.  It makes no great impression.  Sip this wine or drink it with lighter foods.

Medium lemon yellow in color, light-to-medium intense aromas of apple, white peach and hints of tangerine are accented by lemon custard and a raw mineral acid note.  Medium bodied, dry, with a good deal of peppery acidity, balance is so-so.  Light to medium intense flavors of apple, white peach, lemon custard, a hint of tangerine, and a mineral note make a minimal impression.  The finish is peppery, somewhat off kilter, with average length.  February 2017
