Wine Review: This light yellow colored Pinot Gris from Oregon opens with a mild lemon bouquet with a hint of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and has a round mouth feel. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear with hints white pepper and tangerine. The finish is dry and it lingers slightly. This Pinot Gris is food friendly. It would pair well with linguini with clams and broth. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: This wine sparks your palate; greeting with peach and light herbal aromas and dazzling with highlights of pear, green apple, and crisp minerality. A great pairing with spicy Asian or Indian fare.
