Hess Select, California (United States) Pinot Gris 2021

($14):  With is pear-like nuances and good weight, this wine is labeled appropriately as Pinot Gris rather than Pinot Grigio, since it tastes more of Alsace than of Italy.  It has sufficient acidity to accompany food, but not so much as to invalidate it as an aperitif type wine.  A gentle hint of sweetness makes it a fine choice to offset the heat of spiced dishes.
