Barefoot Pinot Grigio
I admit to harboring a prejudice against the cheaper California wines and this one does nothing to disabuse me of that. It's so generic that it comes without a harvest year, has none of the bite characteristic of the variety and, to make matters worse, is decidedly on the sweet side. It comes with a sticker boasting that it took a double gold medal at a N.Y. tasting. I would not even speculate about what its competitors might have been like. $5.99, but don't waste your money on it.
