Pale white in color. Clean, slight floral note in nose. Crisp, minimal tannins. Lemon, vanilla and a faint pineapple note in mouth with malolactic and lemon aftertaste. Character is fading since my last tasting - past its peak, I fear...

Golden yellow in color. Floral and linalool notes in nose. Lime, lemon and grapefruit in mouth. Off dry, good acidity, aperitif or food wine, as you like

Bright, bright nose. Grapefruit and apple. Also makes me think of juicy fruit gum. Fruit on the palette, nice-balanced acid. Paired with some Chinese takeout, duh. Perfect Wednesday night.

Perfect amount of residual to add heft but not necessarily sweetness on the palate. Really a lovely wine. A standout at a recent tasting.

File under the rapidly growing category of Pinot Blancs I enjoy very much. #wantoysters

One of the best Pinot Blancs in Oregon today! Bright, dry with luscious hints of baked pear, honeysuckle, green tea, a bit a citrus and nice minerals and acidity. Lovely finish. Makes you want to go back for more. At about $20/bottle it's amazing! Bethel Heights vines were planted in 1992. Small production so if you can get it, buy multiple bottles! I'm going to buy more!

Great lemon filled expression of Pinot Blanc. Dry and full of life.
