Canoe Ridge Pinot Gris the Expedition 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Creamy on the nose with aromas of pear skins and dusty, mineral earth. Round and fairly lush in the mouth with nice acids supporting bright juicy fruit. The texture turns a bit creamy on the midpalate and this lacks a bit follow through on the finish but does show a nice, pithy grapefruit note on the finale. 87pts

Our estate vineyard is located in Washington State's preeminent wine region, the Columbia Valley. We produce wines with intense flavors by growing our grapes in a unique location with distinctive soils and microclimate. In 1989, a group of farmers started planting winegrapes on Canoe Ridge, which up to that time had been home to only badgers and sagebrush. Canoe Ridge Vineyard's original 101 acres of plantings were completed and additional acres were developed. A total of 143 acres are now in full production. Our estate vineyard overlooks the vast Umatilla National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses 29,370 acres of marshes, sloughs, open water and cropland. This is a popular nesting area for Great Basin Canadian geese, several species of ducks and other marsh and water birds. Unique location Canoe Ridge gently slopes five miles toward the east and west from its 910-foot peak. We selected this site for Canoe Ridge Vineyard because of its distinctive microclimate, which is perfect for growing Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The vineyard is located at a wide expanse of the Columbia River, which moderates the vineyard temperature in both summer and winter. During the growing season, the warm days and cool nights provide the perfect conditions for grape maturity and balance. During winter, the moderating effects of the river keep Canoe Ridge an average of 10 degrees warmer than other parts of the Columbia Valley. Read less

Bright and fruity on the nose with aromas of key lime pie followed by sweet, almost mandarin orange, peach and almond notes with a touch of a minty top note. Fruity and vivid in the mouth this is the crowd pleaser. There a lot of acidity here but it’s well balanced by rather rich and intense fruit that shows the fruitiness of the nose along with that minty edge which adds definition on the palate. This is fruity, fairly complex, and very direct on the palate with excellent persistence to the fruit. It may be a bit too fruity for some but most people will love this. 87pts
