2012 Evesham Wood "Blanc du Puits Sec" Willamette Valley Pinot Gris-Gewürztraminer

SKU #1133728 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The yield on Pinot Gris at Evesham Wood was down drastically in 2012 so that there are only 180 cases of 2012 Blanc du Puits Sec, incorporating 15% Gewurztraminer and, as usual, almost negligible smidgeons of Pinot Blanc, Kerner and Rieslaner – products of Raney’s flights of fancy (the latter possibly on account of making Muller-Catoir’s acquaintance thanks to a certain no-longer wine merchant). Honeysuckle and lily perfume accompanied by scents of celery root and faintly smoky, peachy evocations of Pinot Gris typicity – rise from the glass. A faintly milky expression of lactic acid might remove some refreshment, but there is still plenty of lusciously juicy peach tinged with fresh lime and almond extract on a polished palate; and the faint hint of finishing sweetness both supports the fruit and sets off the counterpoint of brown spices and toasted nuts.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
