Homegrown, organically farmed fruit, from a family-owned Oregon winery. Oregon’s Pinot Gris scene has flourished over the years, culminating in delicious and refreshing wines like this. Smells of pear, pineapple, wet slate after a rain. Flavors are ripe pear, red apple, metallic from the stainless steel fermenters and it’s slightly high in alcohol. 4 stars out of 5. Sweetness=2 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $21
