he nose is open with autumn fruit flavors like quince and baked apples. Airing reveals honeyed and crystallized notes and the onset in the mouth is ample but remains fresh. In the middle mouth, a little bit of roundness and delicately that is supported by the acidity of the wine is present.
Wine Spectator 92 Points: Finely knit, with a vibrancy to the refined acidity that focuses the flavors of ripe peach, pear, guava and kumquat. Silky in texture, with a core of smoky minerality that pushed through on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2022. Top 100 Wines of 2012 #39 Wine Guy: Aromas of honeysuckle and ripe apricot grace the nose on this pleasantly, off-dry Pinot Gris with tone fruit flavors framing the viscous, ultra-smooth palate that finishes with a light sweetness.
