2013 Pinot Gris “Good grip and focus are the hallmarks here, showcasing pinpoint fruit flavors of orange, apple and pear. Precision crafting and immaculate acidity contribute to a lingering, refreshing finish, with a gently-rendered phenolic bite.” 90 Points, Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, 2/1/2015
