Jovino Pinot Gris 2013


Along with Jovino's 2012 Pinot Noir, I also got to try their 2013 Pinot Gris.

It was a darker straw color than I was expecting, leaning almost toward gold. The nose was floral, perfume-y, with a few hints of dried fruit hiding in there, too.

It had a creamy, fatty mouthfeel, which was much heavier than I was expecting. It was dry, though there were hints of citrus zest, and caramel on the back end of a loooooong finish.

This was my very first Oregon Pinot Gris, and I am going to seek more out in the future. It was delightful.
