Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Pinot Gris opens with a fragrant and inviting cantaloupe and pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a melon and pear blend with hints of lime. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite some time after it’s gone. This flavorful Pinot Gris would nicely enhance a light white fish like Dover sole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 100% of the fruit used in Navarro's 2010 Pinot Gris is Philo grown. The juice was fermented and aged in oak ovals for seven months, adding to the rich, yet dry, nutty flavors and the opulent texture. Diversifying our farm contributes to healthier vines, healthier soil and healthier streams. It hopefully promises that there still will be some delicious Mendocino salmon and crab for our children and grandchildren to enjoy with future Pinot Gris.
