David Hill's new Pinot Gris is spicy with the sharp scents and flavors of pineapple. Much drier than the 2006 version, it's more suited to food. The herbal, spicy character, reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc, suggests that the more adventurous might wish to try it with an array of farm cheeses, especially goat.
