Showing brightness in an otherwise rich year, the Gris is complex, moderately weighted on the palate, with clean aromatics reminiscent of morning dew, stone fruit and honeysuckle, red apple, and melon. The palate is textural and long, accented by brightness and mineral notes, juiciness, clove, nectarine, and a lingering smooth finish. This is the epitome of Oregon Pinot Gris at its finest.

Wine SpectatorLight and open-textured, this has a refreshing lilt to the lemon-scented pear flavors, lingering nicely on the finish. Drink now. 5,250 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThere is an unmistakable scent of soapy perfume drifting across this wine, and it carries on further into the flavors, along with apple and pear fruit. In the finish, it bumps up against stiff phenolics, and as a result, never seems to settle into a completely integrated, seamless groove.
