Big, ripe fig notes on the nose with a huge floral character, then a nice apricot profile fills the glass. Nice clarity in the mouth, even though this is fairly large-scaled. The fruit is bright with a gentle mandarin orange note accenting the lightly nutmeat-toned stone fruits. Good length reveals some heat as well as a nice apple blossom tone. 88pts

Like one of the models in a Modigliani, lean yet full of curves, our 2008 Pinot Gris is a bit softer and more rounded than the prior vintage. It retains the wonderfully brilliant nose of fresh orchard fruits and a pleasant bitter-almond quality, along with apple pie-like flavors and cleansing acidity that lead us to recommend pairing this wine with Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, or inventive Pacific Rim dishes.

The first thing you notice in this wine is a burst of fresh floral aromatics and a full-blown fresh ripe apricot fruitiness. The stone-fruit motif is continued on the palate, along with a bit of tangerine and the clean wet stone mineral effect that is the benchmark of La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Gris.


Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Soft and a bit more lush than in the past, this Pinot Gris nevertheless stays true to the Alsatian flavor aroma profile established by previous vintages, with its fresh spring-floral element, rich melon fruitiness and refreshing, cleansing minerality. Fermented in stainless steel, no malolactic fermentation, aged 6 months in neutral French Oak. Excellent with Thai food, other spicy Asian dishes, grilled seafood, etc.
