Wine Review: This pale straw colored Pinot Gris from Anderson Valley opens with a gentle lime and pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty green apple with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of white pepper, lime and pear. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This wine would pair well with swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We ferment and age Pinot Gris in large, seasoned oak ovals, similar to the ones traditionally used in Alsace. It was a decision we made after comparing Navarro wines fermented in stainless steel versus those produced in ovals over the last forty years. This wine will dazzle you with fresh nutty, fruity flavors with a smooth texture and a refreshing crisp finish.
