Domaine Pinot Gris 2009
King Estate is Oregon's leading winery. Home to the largest contiguous certified Organic vineyard in the world, King Estate is known world wide for producing Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris (aka Pinot Grigio)
In my opinion the ultimate go to white for casual nights. Great honey suckle, stone fruits, white flowers on the nose. Melon, honey, and lemon lime flavors dominate the palate. Incredibly easy drinking, this is what an Oregon pinot gris is supposed to taste like.

Bright and lively, brimming with lemon meringue, golden raisin and green tea character. Finishes with zip. Drink now.
If America has a signature Pinot Gris, this is it - widely available, crisply varietal, and now named "Signature Collection." Fleshy pear and stone fruits form the central core; with some suggestions of tannin and light herb finishing up, along with a bit of vanilla wafer.
King Estate is certainly the largest producer of Pinot Gris in Oregon, and probably in the country. Unlike the PGs that dominate the market, this is a fleshy wine, with lush flavors of pear and subtle cinnamon scents. All stainless steel fermented, aged sur lie for a bit of creamy texture, it's just slightly over 13% alcohol, making it a terrific oyster wine and flat-out food friendly for all your shellfish and lighter pastas.
There's a crisp edge to the apple and honeydew aromas and flavors, which echo nicely on the finish. Drink now.
Fresh and simple, smelling and tasting more like canned fruit cocktail than the dry white wine it is. Drink now.
Intensely fruity and jammy, just bursts upon the palate with an explosion of white peach, apricot, nectarine, mango and citrus flavors. Acids are pretty firm, creating balance. There is a strong impression of sweetness.
Tangy and bright, with grapefruit and lime accents to the pear and almond flavors. Lingers nicely.
