Honk for Yakima Valley Blanc.
- Lone Birch Pinot Gris 2014 is a glass of Yakima blanc. Abundant peachy orchard and melon fruit aromas, a juicy palate and balanced sweet tart finish make this a surprisingly interesting bottle. The lingering finish and aromas play out like a Riesling. What's also a nice surprise is finding this bottle so close to home. It's not a large run (just over 5,000 cases), and a family-owned operation, just what we seek. 13.9% ABV. Screw cap. Local price/750 ml: 12.
