    Grapefruit, edgy and tangy with racy acidity and lush texture; clean and long.

    A Washington Pinot Gris that has some of the flesh and texture of a fine Oregon version, yet brings the spice and verve of bight Washington fruit into play. Pear, apples, acacia, orange candy, even a bit of pineapple combine into a fruity and delicious wine. - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, July 2011

    "Bold and fruity, this runs through a spectrum from tart lemon to ripe pineapple to hints of something riper and sweeter, like banana or papaya. A good alternative to Chardonnay for those who favor fruit over oak." -Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast

    tasting notes

    Intense aroma of pear mixed with citrus blossom open to fresh flavors of peach, pear and lime. Bright acid leads to a clean finish with lingering notes of pear on the palate.
