Jones of Washington 2013 Pinot Gris, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley, $13

jones-of-washington-pinot-gris-nv-bottleBest Buy! More than 50 acres of Pinot Gris — making up a third of the site — have been planted at the Jones family’s Two Gun Vineyard north of Quincy. This delicious snapshot of the vineyard hints at tangerine, apricot, lemon curd, lime zest and minerality in the nose. The pour brings as luscious entry of mango, pineapple and apricot before transitioning into starfruit, Gala apple and river rock. The lemon/lime finish adds crispness and balances the residual sugar (1.2%).
