2014 Ponzi Pinot Gris Willamette Valley Oregon "Quick Sip"

*Sample Received*

A key staple in the Ponzi Winery portfolio is tonight's 2014 Pinot Gris. First planted in 1978, this wine can be used as an every day sipper or for special occasions. The 2014 vintage is known as Goldilocks, a result of perfect growing conditions. Fruit forward character with floral bouquets in each and every bottle. Case production 17,000 found nationwide and priced at $17.

The nose is really nice with lemon curd and tangerine followed by sweet vanilla. As the wine warms some beautiful floral daisy's and citrus.

The mouth is a combination of lemon and orange zest with a little sweet pear on the finish. Nice acidity and paired with my lemon/herb crusted cod plus sipped while I cooked. 

Stop by the winery sit on the terrace sipping delicious wine and views that are killer.
