naches-heighs-vineyard-pinot-gris-2012-labelBest Buy! This plateau west of Yakima, Wash., was established as an American Viticultural Area two years ago, and aromatic whites shine in the vineyards that are farmed organically by Phil Cline. The nose of his Pinot Gris brings aromas of Gala apple, pear, pineapple, lime and white pepper. Inside, it’s startlingly dry with a theme of carambola, McIntosh apple, Asian pear and lime. And it is showing consistently, having received a silver medal at both the 2014 Seattle Wine & Food Experience and the 2014 Capital Food and Wine Festival wine competitions.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 550 cases
