Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Straw-gold. Ripe, expansive citrus and orchard fruit aromas are joined by hints of jasmine and sweet butter in the background. Juicy, penetrating and seamless in texture, offering pear and Meyer lemon flavors and a sweet hint of vanilla on the back half. Turns spicier with air and finishes with very good clarity, thrust and sappy persistence. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 1991, the 50-acre Hawks View Vineyard offers the ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The eastern-facing slope and Laurelwood soils, combined with dry farming and hand harvesting, allow for wines of great character and distinction.
Winemaker Notes
Truly memorable wines begin in the vineyard, and our first Cellar Series Pinot Gris was spawned by an innovative viticultural decision. Traditionally, we do not remove the leaves on our Pinot Gris plants in the summer months in order to protect the grapes from intense sun exposure. In the spirit of curiosity, our winemaking team decided to remove the fruit zone foliage from a small portion of our Pinot Gris block and we were immediately amazed by the results. Paired with 100% barrel-aging for the first time in our history, this wine is highlighted by a rich mouthfeel and balanced by a refreshing acidic backbone. - Shannon Gustafson, Winemaker
