Bright and rich, this wine has plenty of structure and ripe fruit, from white-yellow stone fruit to tropical, with warm baking spices and butterscotch hints thrown in. The emollient, lime-tinged mineral-oil texture again balances well with great acidity, seemingly a marker for the 2008 vintage. Bone dry and acid-driven, this wine needs time to open up, and will continue to lengthen, as a peach pit and pear skin finishing snap turns weighty and oily.
Lithe and focused, with pretty lemon, star fruit and delicate spice flavors that linger on the lively finish. This has intensity and refinement. Drink now. 702 cases made.
This is fermented in neutral barrels, so it is a rounder, more open style than Pinot Gris done in stainless steel. It is therefore more approachable at a young age, and also tastes leesy and creamy—a treat for the palate. The fruit is lean and fresh, and a bracing minerality infuses the finish.
