2011 Pinot Gris by LaVelle

I just stopped in to pick up our bottles of Pinot Gris from LaVelle's 5th Street location, next to the new Inn at the 5th. The wines this year will be amazing across all the varieties, especially Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir and this one is a fine exsample of what to expect.
The wine is lush and has a citrus and tropical fruit nose and a dry, very pleasent mouth feel.
But the thing that I liked most was the complexity that it is showing only a few weeks after bottling! By the end of the year this will be absolutly dramatic!
Here are some notes about this wine from Mathew LaVelle, the wine maker.
