Wine Review: This golden straw colored Pinot Gris has an inviting citrus fruit bouquet that includes vanilla and light wet stone. I also detected hints of peaches. This light bodied wine from Monterey is smooth with a lemon, lime, citrus and melon palate with a dash of green apple. I enjoyed the vibrant and balanced acidity. The finish was slightly dry and faded away nicely. This is an easy-going Pinot Gris and will be a crowd pleaser. I would serve it at your next gathering with light appetizers and/or cheese and crackers. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Nectarine, citrus blossom, honeysuckle and wet river stone aromas. Anjou pear, Braeburn apple and Meyer lemon flavors. Lively acidity with a lengthy, but refined finish.
