J Vineyards Russian River Pinot Gris 2011
J Vineyards California Pinot Gris has an enticing bouquet of Fuji apple, ripe cantaloupe, and apricot. The crisp, clean mouthfeel is bursting with flavors of lemon and lime. A hint of kiwi and sweet orange blossom honey on the palate complements the fruit and acid. The lingering finish invites you to relax and enjoy another taste. 724624116014
This is a really nice California pinot gris. Soft and subtle citrus that was nicely balanced with decent minerality. Not oaky or overly acidic. Excellent QPR
This stop at J Wine was part of a Russian River trip! Rosé made from all Pinot Noir. Sweet smelling, reminds me of butterscotch or caramel (somewhere along that line), which is strange! Perhaps it the Jewell Ranch Chardonnay lingering in my mouth. This was crisp and refreshing with green apple and tart cherry. It would be wonderful for summer. Interesting metallic finish that was a little tart. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/07/russian-river-j-vineyards-and-winery.html
Really enjoyed this. Hints of pineapple and a great long finish. Very large smells of fresh orange and a hint of sour apple.
External Reviews for J Vineyards Russian River Pinot Gris
A pale yellow color with slight silver hues. Freshly aromatic with white peach lavender quince and fresh orange peel followed by white pepper and a note of tartar sauce. The palate is delightfully playful with a sounding board of acidity and just a hint of alcohol burn. The mid palate is refreshing and flavored with red apple skins grapefruit and crushed rocks. This should be consumed over the next 2 years. Jeff Loo.
Founded by Judy Jordan in 1986, J Vineyards & Winery began as a producer of critically-acclaimed sparkling wines, but came to the realization they also be ideal for producing site-specific, cool-climate Russian River Valley varietal wines.
