Pinot Gris is a bit of a rare grape on Red Mountain, whose hot temperatures and high land prices are more conducive to red wine grapes. However, this treat from Convergence Zone Cellars in Woodinville might have some rethinking that strategy. It opens with aromas of nectarine, pear and lime, followed by explosive flavors of grapefruit, peach and crisp apple. It has great balance and delicious length. This won a gold medal at the Capital Food & Wine Festival competition in late March.
