13.0% alc
Color: Light silver-yellow. (2.5) Bouquet: Lime, nectarine and green apple. Fresh, lively and crisp with good intensity. (3.0) Body: Zippy with excellent fruit and acidity. Solid middleweight. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet step-for-step with sweet nectarine coming out more. (3.0) Finish: Parallels flavor with length. (3.0)
Overall: Very tasty Pinot Gris with nice body and excellent fruit. More fruity and less minerally than an Italian Pinot Grigio, but just as crisp and lively. Also has more body, similar to an Alsacian Pinot Gris. Excellent value. (14.5)

Note: Their "Signature Collection" Pinot Gris is a few dollars more than their regular "Oregon" Pinot Gris and delivers a significant step up in quality for it.
