This refreshing Pinot Grigios crisp character and friendly structure are easy and enjoyable on the palate. Tropical fruit and spice flavors benefit from vibrant acidity and aromas of orange blossoms, peach and citrus. The finish is clean and tart in classic varietal style."
Ray Einberger, Winemaker.
The 2006 growing season was marked by weather extremes, with near record rainfall in the Columbia Valley during the early spring and record high temperatures in early and mid-summer.
Although a challenging season weather-wise, exceptional sites including the warmer parts of the Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope saw early ripening and bold flavors from the high temperatures.
In the cooler growing areas, later ripening prompted good acidity and flavor in white varietals, as well as good color, pronounced fruit flavors and less aggressive tannins in reds.
