This may be the best Pinot Gris I've ever tasted. I can't even think of any that come close... Deiss, Jermann? Maybe if Bob Stuckey stepped it up?

By the color you'd think it was Rose of Cabernet. But no... It's Gris... A ringer for plousard on sight but it even smells of Jura. I don't like Gris that much bit this shit is bombastic for wine geeks.

Holy batman. That's some skin contact done right! Little tannin, little salinity, lots of love.

Tart and bright with good body and a crisp finish. More like a light red than a rose.
