Supple, spicy and loaded with tangy stone fruits, this outstanding offering shows that Pinot Blanc can develop some pleasing fleshiness when handled well in Oregon. This offers well-blended streaks of pear, apple, white peach and tangerine. The fruit is plush and nicely supported with crisp acids. A resonant spiciness carries the finish.
