Willamette Valley Vineyards Pinot Gris 2004 (NW)

Very big nose, surprising for it's light color
Floral and honey nose
Layers of citrus kick in on the palate

Excellent wine! I was excited for this wine because I have heard so much about Oregon Pinot Gris but felt like I wasn't well versed in this category. This wine seems to be a good representation, with a light and crisp feel but full of flavor. I won't be seeking out a lot of crisp whites this winter in Massachusetts, but next spring I'll be looking for Oregon Pinot Gris. Our friends and house guests for the weekend brought this bottle from New York. They paid $15 for the bottle. A nice buy! Raise a glass!
