"Bright fruit-forward style Pinot Gris full of juicy pear, some citrus, and tropical flavors. It seems to have a touch of residual sugar, but balanced nicely by crisp acidity. Pretty spot on for an Oregon Pinot Gris and will also be a great summer sipper for those long hot afternoons. Would even pair nicely with a fresh arugula salad with pear slices, chevre, and almonds. For the white wines in our lineup this was the favorite. And now I’m getting super impatient for summer!"
She also recommends our 2014 Pinot Noir:
"Sourced from six different vineyard sites from throughout the Willamette Valley during the outstanding 2014 vintage. This is a bright, fresh, and fruity Pinot with dominant red berry fruits (cranberry was the standout), and some pretty spice notes. It’s bright, a bit ripe (in a good way!), and easy going down. I can see this being a great summer red. Fruity and low in tannins, it would be a good choice for a warm day if you’re craving red wine. And for an Oregon Pinot Noir I think this is a great value priced just under $20."
