About This Wine:

The wine is brilliant with a pale hint of color and pleasing white flower aromas mingled with pear and citrus notes that waft from the glass. Silky in texture with moderate palate weight and a pleasing minerality, our 2009 Pinot gris tastes of Bartlett pear mingled with a touch of Meyer lemon. A modest 0.5% residual sugar uplifts the fruit and balances nicely with the natural acidity maintained by the cool fermentation. Pair with cedar plank roasted salmon, shellfish in garlic butter, or just enjoy this delightfully polished wine as a cocktail alternative on a sunny summer patio at the end of a long day.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points & 2 Stars - Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines:
"Medium-light yellow color; attractive, forward, floral, citrussy, ripe stone fruit aroma with hints of ginger and minerality; medium-full body; slightly rich, supple, white peach and ripe pear flavors with a slight hint of residual sugar and a touch of lime zest; crisp finish; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended." (Aug/Sep '10)

90 Points - Wine & Spirits Magazine:
"This is a lean, angular wine with scents of dried apple and a toasty note of lees. The flavors are firm and pear-like, with a minerality that makes it a good foil for lemon-scented sand dabs." - Patrick Comiskey (10/2010)
