Quality wine at a good price. Lemon and mineral on the nose, zingy lemon zest turns into nice acid on the palette.

Alsace in style, Californian in soul. One of Jon Priest's most underrated wines.

Clean. Consistent. Not overly bright but balanced!

Not enough acid to bring around wine snobs who are used to Old World Pinot Gris, but just the right amount to justify the ripe pear notes. Well framed but not well tamed. Still a local favorite!

More body & texture than I'm used to in a Pinot Gris. Creamy and a bit floral. Tasty juice.
