The 2009 J "California" Pinot Gris has an enticing bouquet of tangerine and orange blossom. The crisp entry and velvety mouthfeel bursts into flavors of Margarita lime and Tahitian vanilla. There is a hint of honey on the palate that complements the fruit and acid nicely. The lingering finish invites you to relax and enjoy another taste. In fact, it is the perfect solo sipper after a hard day at the office, or while lounging under a tree on a summer afternoon. This layered and well-balanced wine is a great accompaniment to a variety of foods, from spicy Asian and Mexican cuisine to a good old-fashion turkey dinner or holiday ham. We suggest incorporating our Pinot Gris in the ham glazing.
