I have to say, I love my Pinot Gris vineyards. These vineyards are just gorgeous, with every leaf and shoot neatly in place. The majority (75%) of the grapes come from our Cat Canyon Vineyard near Los Alamos. Block 1A-S is planted to Pinot Gris of clone 146 on Freedom rootstock, producing fruit with crisp acidity and fresh notes of lemon and lime. The wines from this block have a focused line of minerality running through them – a quality I have always admired in Alsatian Pinot Gris. The rest of the grapes for the blend are from two blocks in our North Canyon Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. Yields in this vineyard are typically quite low and the vines have to struggle to gain flavor in the meager soils, which are predominantly clay loam and some shale.
"With just a touch of oak that adds a little cream, this beautiful wine is a textbook example of why Pinot Gris has been so successful in California. Fully dry and explosively crisp in acidity, the flavors are exotic and complex, ranging from pink grapefruits and limes through lychees and figs to honeysuckle flowers and clove-scented vanilla. A great food wine and, at this price, a sommelier’s dream."

Pinot Gris' most popular and successful region is Alsace, France, an area of the country that actually puts the name of the grape on the label.
