Sawtooth Pinot Gris Snake River Valley 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite fragrant and floral on the nose with spicy notes that recall cardamom and coriander layered over crisp Asian pear fruit and salty mineral tones. Round and bright in the mouth with a lovely blend of fruitiness and fresh minerality in the mouth. This is vibrant on the palate with orange cream and pear fruit but there is a lovely mineral/savory basenote that adds complexity and tension in the mouth Clean and brisk on the finish, this is fairly long with a hint of creamy pineapple and plenty of acidity on the finale. Fairly intense and nicely varietal in the mouth with an attractive freshness and clarity to the fruit. 88pts
