Fragrant, fruit-forward wafts of rose talc, melon, candied pineapple, peach and lemon zest introduce this bright and bountiful Pinot Gris. Juicy white pear, green apple and a hint of pie crust linger on the creamy palate. The quenching finish is crisp, refreshing and lengthy.

Extremely pale, vaguely hazy onion skin. Ripe pear, melon and hyacinth scents are complemented by a subtle touch of honey. Round and seamless in texture, offering open-knit orchard and pit fruit flavors and a subtle touch of succulent herbs. More on the weighty, Alsace side of this varietal equation than on the Italian side. The long, floral-driven finish shows good clarity and a hint of herbacity. There's a lot going on here for such a reasonably priced wine; I imagine that the hipster crowd would happily pay double and think they'd scored a deal. Maybe they did.

Sleek and delicate, with pretty orange blossom and cantaloupe flavors that finish with brisk acidity. Drink now. 7,000 cases made.

The color is a light tawny straw, and the aromas have a pleasantly dusty spiciness. The fruit reflects the flavors of early oxidation, with autumnal apples and hints of pollen and clover. It's quite nice but should be consumed over the next year or two.
