Bright and refreshing, with a resiny edge to the peach and melon flavors, finishing soft. Drink now.
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.
Smooth and silky, with pear and melon flavors riding harmoniously over the dry finish, echoing nicely. This integrates its elements especially well. Drink now.
Light and fresh, brimming with nectarine and melon fruit, lingering on the open-textured finish. 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.
The 2006 Pinot Gris contains a small amount of Muscat, Pinot Blanc, and barrel-fermented Auxerrois. Light straw-colored with an amber tint, it offers crisp, dry flavors in its well-balanced personality. Drink it over the next 1-2 years
