Wine Review: If you like Pinot Gris with lots of character and flare this offering will impress you. It opens with a light green apple like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and slightly creamy. There are irresistible Anjou pear flavors with a touch of pineapple and minerality blended in as well. The finish is dry and mouthwatering. This very food friendly wine would pair very well with halibut. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We have been making Pinot Gris since 1993, at first from the vineyard almost next door called Valley Foothills which is close enough for Navarro's winemaker to cast an appraising eye over the fence. We fermented, like winemakers in Alsace, in oak ovals and puncheons. The rich texture combined with racy acidity makes this a particularly nice wine with wild salmon; if unavailable, halibut is a good substitute.
