2016 Ron Rubin Pinot Gris
Russian River Valley, California
Pinot Gris is very difficult to find in the Russian River Valley, with only 180 acres planted in the entire appellation. Low yielding and challenging to grow (like its cousin Pinot Noir), Pinot Gris requires a very attentive grower. These vines were hand tended to maximize their potential. Pale yellow in color and has delicate floral, stone fruit, pear, and peppermint aromas. It also has fleshy yet bright acidity and fresh fruit flavors of peach, apricot, and Asian pear. The finish has hints of minerality.

Napa Valley, California
This radiant Sauvignon Blanc presents with pale yellow hues and glinting hints of green. Pristine estate fruit is showcased on the nose, where this wine gives generously of pink grapefruit and lime citrus aromas with a subtle thread of passion fruit and fennel. In the cellar, minimal intervention yields a vivid expression of freshness on the palate with flavors of grapefruit and lime zest zinging through the finish to create a wine of agility, brightness and devotion to its essence. 91 Pts Wine & Spirits
