| Alma Rosa Santa Barbara Pinot Gris 2008|
Santa Barbara, California
Like one of the models in a Modigliani, lean yet full of curves, our 2008 Pinot Gris is a bit softer and more rounded than the prior vintage. It retains the wonderfully brilliant nose of fresh orchard fruits and a pleasant bitter-almond quality, along with apple pie-like flavors and cleansing acidity.
Pair this wine with Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, or inventive Pacific Rim dishes. Letís do some lightly-fried or grilled fish in garlic-lime butter with a spicy tropical-fruit salsa.
