Lightly tawny in color, with a fresh and enlivening mouthfeel, this is a good pinot gris for salmon, halibut or even swordfish. Pear flesh and skin, white peach and a hint of spice are all in play.

KINGS RIDGE RIESLING

This outstanding riesling brings a bouquet of rose petals and peaches. There’s enough bright acidity to push flavors of lime and grapefruit forward, and the wine drinks dry despite relatively low alcohol.

Underwood bottle Pinot Noir

UNDERWOOD PINOT NOIR

2019 – 90 POINTS “BEST BUY”

Grapes for this humble Pinot are sourced from all over the state. Such diversity is unheard of in a budget wine, as is aging in 15% new French oak, also part of the process. Pretty cherry and brambly blackberry fruit shines most of all, with an elegant transparency. It’s a light and almost delicate wine, but offers sensational value and plenty of flavor.
