Duck Pond Willamette Pinot Gris Oregon 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A nice blend of apple blossom and honeycomb greets the nose followed by a gentle tropical fruit tone and a whiff of smoke. Light and fresh on entry, this is a rounder style of Pinot Gris, texturally very much a hybrid between the tart Italian examples and the richer Alsatian type. There’s a lot of fruit here and while the the wine is mid-bodied, it is quite intensely flavored. Lots of persimmon flavors early on are followed by gentle spice and dried peach notes, all supported by integrated acidity. The finish is nicely clean if not long. A dinner wine as opposed to an aperitif style, though this does firm up on the finish with air. 88pts
