About

91

"Bright straw. Rich aromas and flavors of lychee, baked apple, orange peel and aromatic herbs. Juicy and ripe; the long, vibrant finish offers a hint of residual sweetness. Still a little closed, but this will likely improve further with another year or two in the bottle. About 70% bought and 30% estate grapes. I like this."

90 Wine Spectator

"Lithe and juicy, this well-balanced Pinot Gris is backed by sleek acidity that focuses the flavors of melon, pickled ginger, star fruit and mineral. Clean-cut finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,500 cases made."

Product Description:

Rich and full but still dry. The most discreet of all varieties in primary aromas, it enjoys the best aging potential. The bouquet is soft and supple, intense, characteristically open and expressive, with fully ripe fruit notes, apricot, greengage, licorice, a touch of buttery brioche, sesame seed, pistachio and fresh hazelnut. The wine fills the mouth and is well constructed, suave, velvety, soft and almost juicy, with a nice long aromatic finish.
