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
