TASTING NOTES:
OUR J CALIFORNIA PINOT GRIS DELIGHTS WITH NOTES OF CANDIED PINEAPPLE, LEMONGRASS, WHITE PEACH AND JASMINE. THIS WINE IS FRUIT FORWARD WITH RIPE FLAVORS OF ANJOU PEAR, YELLOW APPLE AND LIME. THE PALATE IS COMPLEX WITH NOTES OF ORANGE BLOSSOM AND A SLIVER OF MINERALITY. A CRISP ACIDITY AND LAYERS OF FRUIT FLAVORS MAKE THIS WINE A GREAT PAIRING FOR MANCHEGO CHEESE WITH A PEACH CHUTNEY, CHILLED MELON GAZPACHO, OR A J FAVORITE OF PINEAPPLE BROWN BUTTER SAUCE OVER SCALLOPS.

VINTAGE COMMENTS:
IN 2016, THE GROWING SEASON IN CALIFORNIA WAS WARM AND DRY. FOLLOWING SUIT WITH THE FOUR PREVIOUS VINTAGES, THIS YEAR CONTINUED TO BE AN EARLIER, MORE COMPACT GROWING SEASON. THIS PRODUCED RIPE, CONCENTRATED FLAVORS WITH EXPRESSIVE FLORAL NOTES IN OUR PINOT GRIS GRAPES. IN 2016, WE LOOKED TO LODI, CLARKSBURG AND THE RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY TO DELIVER COMPLEX LAYERS OF AROMA, FLAVOR AND TEXTURE FOR A TRULY DISTINCT CALIFORNIA PINOT GRIS.
