Silky and shimmering, this willowy gris from estate sources in Salem leads with ripe apple and spicy pineapple scents. Its heft is supported by lively acidity; for all its weight the wine feels like a jib filled with wind, with a taut and vibrant finish that suggests serving it with pork schnitzel.

Wine Tasting NotesBright, fruity, crisp style. Pretty aromas of fresh young pear, honey, starfruit, honeydew, and flower. Bold and crisp mouth feel with generous flavors of pear, mineral, melon, and spice, interwoven with well-balanced acidity. The Pinot Blanc, picked very ripe, adds emollient mouthfeel, and contributes to the Alsatian style. While the Muscat adds flowery sweetness, the barrel fermented portions of the Auxerrois add a kiss of toast and richness. The Pinot Gris is grown on the Estate Vineyard in the Salem Hills, the Pinot Blanc and Muscat are grown at Tualatin Estate Vineyards and the Auxerrois in the Eola Hills. Peak drinkability will be between now - 2008.

Smooth and silky, with pear and melon flavors riding harmoniously over the dry finish, echoing nicely. This integrates its elements especially well. Drink now.

Pineapples and pears fill out this tart, juicy, high-acid effort. Though it does not quite have the flesh of the 2007 it's a fine food wine; clean, crisp and varietal.

A Pinot Gris that goes the extra mile, with good definition of flavors, notably lots of spice and citrus rind. Edgy, tart and racy, yet also full-bodied, it shows good persistence and a sense of layers, not just length.
