This Pinot Gris is beautiful, bright and balanced, a true representation of the varietal character. Aromas of pear, green apple, anise and caramel are followed by flavorful notes of kiwi, strawberry and citrus. Full of life to the last glimmer of flavor on your palate. Parired beautifully with Mediterranean foods, and Cajun seafood dishes.
The nose is inviting with scent of honeydew melon and citrus. Lifted notes of minerality and herbs lead into the palate, which is bright and crisp, an attribution to the cool growing climate in 2010. Wine is a beautiful soft straw color and will be delicious with various cheeses and seafood. Spectacular parings include oysters, scallops and a poached halibut with capers. Enjoy!
**"90 Points." -Wine Advocate!**
A bold and dark style wine with a dark red fruit forward palate that is accented by oak, adding a sweet woodsy effect to the front. The palate develops in the mouth bringing out flavors of cherry, black fruit, mocha and spice making it a great wine to drink alone or with a barbecued or braised steak.
The 2008 vintage was a celebration of our 25th year here at Yamhill Valley Vineyards, we couldn't ask for more. Nice full garnet color in the glass. A wine with rich velvety texture with many layers of flavor thanks to the wonderful growing season. Initially cherry and deep red fruit characters on the nose, that come into full bloom once on the palate. A nice tartness on the finish that rounds out the experience and leaves a light clean tannin on the tongue. Bold enough to pair with peppered steak, but complex enough to be enjoyed on its own. A steal!

Our two Riesling blocks were planted in 1983 and 1985, they are own rooted and always pruned with low yields in mind, as to not over exert the vine. This makes for aromatics reminiscent of the old Alsatian classic Rieslings and a rich and full texture. This Riesling has 2.8% residual sugar making it semi-sweet intended to balance the natural acidity. Serve with foods that have a little spice, light desserts, or enjoy on its own! From our family to yours, cheers!
This Riesling has the honeysuckle and floral aromas that many of our recent vintages have had, we have come to call this this Yamhill Valley Riesling terroir. The 2.8% residual sugar is just enough to balance the acid naturally found in Riesling, leaving this a zippy, full flavored wine with a bright texture.
