There's little or no oak on this wine to mask the pure fruit flavors that are boosted by succulent acidity. It's an explosion of pineapples, tart green apples, figs, spicy melons and kiwi fruit, with a tangy, white peppery finish. Easy to enjoy, yet fancy enough for that white tablecloth.

This affordable wine is Exhibit A on why Pinot Gris/Grigio is such a hot variety. It's like a cross between Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, brisk and clean on the one hand, and rich and fruity on the other.

A real pleasing wine, all tank-fermented and aged, is the crisp, fresh, richly fruity 2005 Pinot Gris, which is certainly a food-friendly wine.

Readers looking for an apple skin and orange rind-scented, crisp, dry, medium-bodied white should check out the 2007 Pinot Gris. It is a nicely textured, fresh, lively wine to enjoy over the next 1-2 years.

Crisp, juicy acidity and tangy flavors of Meyer lemons and limes make this wine immediately appealing. Partial barrel fermentation adds a touch of toast and cream, but a keen racy freshness really is the hallmark.

The 2008 Pinot Gris offers fresh, steely, orange rind, and citrus blossom notes in a light to medium-bodied, richly fruity style. This cuvee sees no wood, and is all the better for it. Drink it over the next year.

Winemaker's Notes:

Gentle handling from the vineyard to the winepress, then soft pressing of the grapes gave this wine a head start for flavor and body. This wine is primarily stainless steel fermented to keep the bright fruit flavors, and a small portion was barrel fermented to add dimension and body.

Tasting Notes:

Our Sonoma County Pinot Gris presents aromas of peach blossom, fresh pear and green apple that are subtly rounded and enriched by notes of fig. The fruit is supported by a balanced, elegant mouthfeel that allows the intense flavors to shine.
