The 2008 J Pinot Gris Russian River Valley has an enticing bouquet of white peach, orange blossom and honeysuckle, with hints of mango and jasmine. The soft entry and velvety mouthfeel unfold into flavors of sweet summer melon and Meyer lemon cream. There is a hint of honey on the palette that compliments the fruit and acid nicely. This well-balanced, multi-layered wine is a great companion to a variety of foods, from spicy Thai cuisine to Thanksgiving Dinner, as well as a beautiful stand-alone summer sipper.
Tastes like it has a bit of chardonnay, just enough to give it flavor but it's still light and very drinkable.
