2008 Cristom Pinot Gris
Clear, bright, soft golden color. Medium intensity aromatics of pear, apricot, crème brûlée, and stone. Dry on the palate, with medium acidity, medium alcohol, and flavors of pear, apple, citrus, lemon water. A little alcohol is noticeable as the wine warms up. Medium finish. Pair with a salad dressed in a fruit-based vinaigrette. Recommended.
