Winemaker's Notes:

Sets the gold standard for American Pinot Gris. Aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, floral perfume, and magnolia blossom are accented by hints of vanilla and anise in this wine. In the mouth, the wine is rich and round with flavors of citrus, tangerine, peach, anise, and pear. This Pinot Gris maintains a perfect balance of fruit and acidity throughout its soft, lingering finish.
