Review date: May 4, 2014

Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Pinot Gris from Oregon is consistently Very Good. The 2013 vintage is no exception. It opens with a fragrant wet stone and peach like bouquet along with hints of tangerine and pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly viscous, a bit acidic, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty green apple with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected hints of lime and tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a while after the wine is gone. This Pinot Gris would pair very nicely with broiled scallops. Enjoy - Ken

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
