Pinot Gris has made a name for itself in Oregon's Willamette Valley, and there are a few different styles that can be found. Here we've got quite a big, complex wine that's offering a lot for its price point. Spearheaded by pretty, delicate aromas of white peach, jasmine and cherry blossom, the palate is richer than the nose implies. Soft, round and silky in texture, with suggestions of marzipan and soft squishy peaches. Despite the richness, there's a decent refreshing zing to the almondy finish.
