Winemaker's Notes

Our Pinot Gris grapes were grown in the Paragon vineyards of the Edna Valley. Just four miles from the Pacific Ocean, this valley has one of the longest and coolest growing seasons in California and its soil is composed of uplifted sea deposits. As a result, Edna Valley produces a crisp and intense Pinot Gris grape with an impressive complexity. The 2000 growing season was moderate and dry, which produced clean grapes with concentrated flavors.

The wine's subtle floral nose mixes with sweet citrus tones and hints of pineapple and green apple. Aging the wine for four months in neutral French barrels imparts a round, elegant and enduring mouthfeel. The taste evolves on the palate with a finish reminiscent of pears and caramel.

This is a perfect wine for picnics, grilled food and spicy appetizers. Try it with grilled swordfish in a ginger chutney sauce or roasted White Sea bass with a Thai coconut glaze.

-Wilfred Franklin, Assistant Winemaker
