willow-crest-pinot-gris-2012-bottleBest Buy! Dave Minick created one of the state’s oldest sites for Pinot Gris when he planted this to the family farm north of Prosser, Wash. He founded the eponymous winery and now oversees all vineyards for Seattle-based Precept Wine. His fruit made for a gorgeous nose of dusty lemon, melon, fresh butterscotch, a whiff of petrol and herbs de Provence. There’s a melange of flavors that ranges from Red Delicious apple, pineapple and melon. Its dry finish comes with a fun hint of tutti frutti.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 3,000 cases
