Pinot Gris from 2014 is looking very good in the Willamette, with crisp, concise, complex flavors. Here it’s a mix of lemon, lime and pineapple, with refreshing minerality.
More than a slight hint of blush color (suggesting extra skin contact) leads into this broad, spicy, flavorful wine. Highlights of ginger, cinnamon and sweet baking spices adorn rich, mouthcoating pear fruit. It offers an enjoyable, drink-now style.
The 2014 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley displays a bouquet of lime zest, wet stones, and sweet cream with resolves into Asian pear and apricot on the palate. All of which are balanced by firm acidity.
