 Tasted by juneau bob on 7/2/2011 & rated 85 points: Crisp Apple, light body, medium texture (1239 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 4/14/2010: Straw and in harmony. Very much easier to drink than Zind Humbrecht's Calcerious. In this style I have always thought this is one of the best in Oregon. (1692 views)
 Tasted by cartime on 2/13/2010 & rated 91 points: Pale straw color. A slightly floral nose with citrus, pineapple, and green plum. Green apple and minerals on the palate. Nice, creamy mouthfeel. Medium length spicy finish. (1802 views)
 Tasted by Pour House on 1/16/2010 & rated 90 points: Opens with aromas of granny smith apple and bright minerality. Aroma matures to ripe pineapple in the glass. Taste of apples and minerals. Medium plus finish with tropical endnotes. (1805 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 10/14/2009 & rated 91 points: Wine & Spirits Top 100 Tasting (Galleria at the San Francisco Design Center, SF, CA): Green apple nose; creamy, green apple, pear palate; medium finish (2678 views)
 Tasted by nwk on 1/30/2009: Ill begin by stating that i am not a PG fan. This was a really nice, but not inspiring wine for me. Good almond and pear fruit, soft texture and round mouth. It lack excitement, but is well made and round with a decent amount of fruit and spice. No clue what this costs but it was an easy enough drink with little complexity. (2162 views)

Pinot Gris

From Pinot Gris Wikipedia entry:
Wines made from the Pinot gris vary greatly and are dependent on the region and wine making style they are from. Alsatian Pinot gris are medium to full bodied wines with a rich, somewhat floral bouquet. They tend to be spicy in comparisons with other Pinot gris. While most Pinot gris are meant to be consumed early, Alsatian Pinot gris can age well. German Pinot gris are more full-bodied with a balance of acidity and slight sweetness. In Oregon the wines are medium bodied with a yellow to copper-pink color and aromas of pear, apple, and/or melon. In California, the Pinot gris are more light bodied with a crisp, refreshing taste with some pepper and arugula notes. The Pinot grigio style of Italy is a light-bodied, often lean wine that is light in color with sometimes spritzy flavors that can be crisp and acidic. Although this wine can be very sweet, it will begin to lose its acidity when it is nearly ripe.

Pinot gris is considered an "early to market wine" that can be bottled and out on the market within 4–12 weeks after fermentation.
