Reviews and Ratings

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Offers citrus and pear on the nose with some crisp green apple and white peach on the palate.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Deep golden yellow color with a powerful nose of pear, apricot, honey dew and honey.

The palate is fresh, rich and very long.

This off-dry wine will be good match Tempura shrimp with spicy mayonnaise, Oriental dishes in general.

Serve it at 8-10 degrees.

Ready to drink but can be aged 5-6 years.
This Oregonian white wine is made form Pinot Gris grapes, the state's signature white wine grape. Pair with crab legs. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
