Taz Pinot Gris Santa Barbara California Wine 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Taz Pinot Gris Santa Barbara - To gain complexity, one-third of the wine was fermented in barrels and aged sur lies for five months in French oak. Another one-third received a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tank, finishing in one and two-year old barrels, with the final one-third given the same slow, cool fermentation with aging in stainless steel tank to heighten and focus the fruit. You'll find this wine offers lime and lichee aromas with a flinty mineral note reflective of the soils in the Los Alamos growing region. Fuller and richer by design, there is a creamy mouthfeel that brings the fruit forward on the palate. This is a California Wine.
