Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

Leading with notes of stone fruits on the nose, the current Pinot Grigio is another winner in the crowd pleasing arena. On the palate the minerality is balanced by lush fruit flavors of citrus, the zing of pineapple, and golden apples on the finsh. Pair this with grilled artichokes, peppery arugula and cucumber salad, or shrimp cocktail.

Vintage Notes

Overall, the 2016 growing season was defined by the lack of summer rainfall and drought-like conditions which resulted in slightly lower yields of complex fruit suitable for extraordinary winemaking. In the early part of the growing season Old Man Winter gave us a couple of blasts that pushed bud-break back about a week later than desired and damaged some of the early buds, but the persistently dry conditions leveled the playing field during flowering. Although 2016 was one of the warmest growing seasons on record it was not as hot as the famed 2012 growing season resulting in smaller clusters with less intense phenolics, but balanced acidity and lower sugars in the grapes. With the lack of rain throughout July and August our young vines suffered, forcing us to drop some fruit, while the established vines on the Davis and Damiani fields dug deep into the nutrient rich soil, producing fruit of exceptional quality.
