The nose showed green apple with light lemon, grasses and salty cheese rind. On the palate, it was light with a hint of sweetness and a spritz of effervescence, showing citrus fruits and young white peach. The finish was clean and refreshing with mineral tinged white fruit left lingering on the palate.

Strikingly spicy, with the scents and flavors of Bosc pears, this textural, racy wine has a bit of refreshing effervescence as well. Subtle traces of citrus, pineapple and Asian pear are woven through, and the bracing acidity sets it up well for richly sauced poultry or pasta dishes.

Light yellow. Fresh apple and pear aromas are complemented by deeper-pitched peach pit and anise qualities. A spicy, gently sweet midweight, offering lively orchard fruit and guava flavors supported by a refreshingly bitter jolt of quinine on the back. Impressively clean, tangy and dry on the finish, which repeats the pear note. This would go wonderfully with fresh goat cheeses.

Ponzirsquo;s elegant and complex Pinot Gris is still showing a little bottle shock; itrsquo;s got some spritzy character and is not quite resolved. Give this wine some more bottle age (or decanting) and it breathes open, with pineapple, pear and citrus. There is plenty of acid and a nice foundation of mineral also.

Bright and generous, offering unusual guava-scented pear flavors that remained focused through the tight finish. Drink now.

Vanilla, mango and papaya notes are offset by strong green pear and floral aromatics. The mouth is full and broad with a refreshing hit of lemon custard.

Winemaker's Notes:

One of the very best from the Pacific northwest and, thankfully!, not anything like the oceans of blah pinot grigio imported from Italy every year. Quite full-flavored yet refined. Perfect aperitif and with fresh fish, divine. From the talented Louisa Ponzi and her dad, Dick.
