Pinot Grigio resembles Pinot Noir until veraison. The clusters when harvested are a beautiful copper color. Being a natural genetic mutation, Pinot Grigio has all the intrigue, complexity and flavors of Pinot Noir, with none of the red color. This vintage suggests that the Russian River Valley can produce Pinot Grigio every bit as glorious as its famous Pinot Noirs. The fruit comes from two vineyards in the Russian River Valley. The grapes were hand harvested and delivered to the winery in half-ton picking bins in the cooler mornings in order to maximize the grapes' integrity.

Color: Pale gold.

Aroma: Melon, orange blossom, and spicy.

Taste: Lively and fresh with a dense midpalate. Crisp with a lingering finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Break out the hors d'oeuvres for this tart young Pinot Grigio. It needs food to balance it out. The acid-backed flavors are savory, and include Meyer lemons, limes, lemongrass and sweet butter. Try with delicious little fish and pork appetizers baked in phyllo.

Score: 87. —Steve Heimoff, May 01, 2009.
