2016 Pinot Gris
Green pear, toasted almond, and sweet cilantro aromas. This is a light, mid-bodied wine has a nice thick texture with a rounded mouthfeel. The tannins are very smooth and the wine has flavors of honeydew and green pears throughout. The finish lingers long with some dill and lemon peel flavors.
Pinot Gris is very genetically similar to Pinot Noir, with only a color gene mutation separating the two.

It is located about 2 miles North of Boonville, in the famed Anderson Valley AVA of Mendocino County.
