2016 Pinot Gris Anderson Valley
"Subtle floral notes meet Asian pear flavors. The palate is rich and dense cut beautifully by a fresh and pure acidity. This textured and layered Pinot Gris is enticing, flowing from ripe grapefruit to fresh cut flowers. The long and gentle aftertaste adds up to this touching and alluring wine." – Stéphane Vivier
An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
