Imagine, if you will, a little tiny vine of Pinot Grigio, left alone in a strange land. Until one day, the Riesling family came along, and felt bad for the poor little Pinot Grigio vine. So they picked him up, wrapped their arms around him, and they all now live happily ever after in the Alsatian soils of Zind Humbrecht. Least... that's what I got out of it. Unique & clear flavors including lemon, bananas, pear, touches of butterscotch on the nose (especially when it began opening up). The Pinot D'Alsace had a pleasant weight to it, and balance as well. It handled cayenne pepper and other heat nicely, perhaps without the cutting acidity and cleanliness of some of its more established (and more "mineral-istic") Rieslings in the Zind family- but nice enough as to add to a spicy meal rather than detract. It was creamy on the mid palate, as well as on its way out with a solid, if not over-powering or all-too-profound of a finish. We enjoyed it, give it 4 glasses here, and 89 points elsewhere, should such numbers matter, and would recommend the experience. We're glad this little vine found such a great family to take him in, and make him a home ;).

Firm acidity backs subtle notes of white peach, lemon zest, brine and smoke in this delicate, well-meshed white, with a lacy texture. An excellent summer sipper. Drink now through 2011.

Dried apple and peach notes accent a hint of lanolin and toast. The acidity stands out a bit now, so give this time or try with food. Ends with a lingering floral note. Drink now through 2012.

The smell of the sea winds through this full-bodied Pinot Blanc. Pretty peach, apricot, clementine and honeysuckle notes flesh it out, while zesty acidity provides a firm framework. Delicious on its own, but would pair well with seafood. Drink now through 2014.

Full medium gold. Exotic aromas and flavors of musky apricot, orange and medicinal herbs; one senses the wine's firm acidity on the nose. Then spicy, intense and surprisingly dry in the mouth, with a creamy texture leavened by some unabsorbed CO2. This chewy, substantial pinot blanc needs food.
