Wine Review: This almost clear colored Pinot Gris with a touch of straw color opens with a mild wet stone bouquet with a touch of green apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a pleasant mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of green apple. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Oregon Pinot Gris would pair well with linguini with clams doused in a white wine and garlic broth. Enjoy – Ken
