Acrobat Pinot Gris 2007 750ML
Acrobat Pinot Gris 2008 750ML  
sku: 13110

Acrobat is fun. A wine born to introduce even more people to the style and grace of Pinot Gris. Grown responsibly in the gorgeous hills and valleys of Western Oregon, this wine works wonderfully with food of all kinds and is equally crisp and refreshing on its own.

Wine Spectator: Light and juicy, delivering lively pear, honeydew and spice aromas and flavors that linger nicely. Drink now. - H.S.

Wine Maker's Notes: 2008 was a classic Oregon vintage. A cool spring started the vintage off slowly, but warm summer weather allowed the grapes to catch up and grown at a steady, even pace. Estate heat summation was typical, 1807 growing degree days vs. the average 1811. The summer saw below average rain fall with only 6.75 inches between April and October, including a minimal 1.5 inches that fell during the critical late-September / early-October pre-harvest period. As a result, fruit was clean, ripe and concentrated.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Very pale straw with golden highlights.
Nose: Green apple, grapefruit, lime zest, and pear.
Flavors: Tangerine, lemon, kiwi, pineapple.
Mouthfeel: Crisp entry with nice balance between acidity and residual sugar, round and full mid-palate, clean and refreshing finish.

A perfect accompaniment for poultry, shellfish and other seafood. This Pinot Gris would also pair beautifully with fruits, cheeses, and cured meats.more

Melville Pinot Noir 2007 750ML
Melville Pinot Noir 2007 750ML  
sku: 12951

Tasting Notes: With a pretty, dark red-blue hue, this wine opens with lifted fruit punch aromatics of black raspberry, black cherry, fig and watermelon. Spice nuances of pink peppercorns, oolong tea, iron and sesame seed follow. This wine balances the complexity with feminine grace as hints of purple flowers and hibiscus radiate while also yielding to oceanic themes of sand and iodine. These aspects manifest cohesively on the palate bolstering its presence with significant texture and verve.more
