Aubichon Cellars 2014 Reserve Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, $35

By on September 25, 2016

Aubichon Cellars 2014 Reserve Pinot GrisOregon winemaker Jim Sanders furthers his reputation with Pinot Gris with this reserve approach, which began high in the Chehalem Mountains and includes oak fermentation for 16 months on the lees. There’s very little sign of that oak in the aromas, which feature lemon pepper, lime zest and Bosc pear with Gala apple and a pinch of basi. There’s nice complexity and richness to the palate with delicious flavors of Golden Delicious apple and golden raspberry acidity, which leads to a lick of butterscotch candy in the finish. These wines are available throughout Oregon, the tasting room in Dundee, and markets such as Chicago, New Jersey and New York.
