Jones of Washington 2011 Pinot Gris

November 14, 2012 

Appellation: Columbia Valley

Oregon is more famous for Pinot Gris, but Washington makes nearly as much, and it has become a favorite with wine lovers. This is a superb example that reminds us of an Italian Pinot Grigio style. It opens with inviting aromas of pineapples and grapefruit zest, followed by beautifully balanced flavors of tropical fruit and bright citrus. Rated "Outstanding" by Wine Press Northwest magazine.

Price: $14.

Cases produced: 502.

Food matches: Pair this with clams, mussels, scallops or seafood chowder.
