Cooper Mountain Vineyards Pinot Gris Reserve 2011

Cooper Mountain Vineyards Pinot Gris Reserve 750ml 2011

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Aug 2012)
The Cooper Mountain 2011 Pinot Gris Reserve deliciously illustrates two things that winemaker Gilles de Domingo professes to love: reduction and lees. From the former, this wine derives its sense of vibrancy and finishing ?ping;? from the latter an enhancement of this cepage?s natural tendency toward textural richness (notwithstanding that to taste 90% of the Oregon exemplars I did, you would never guess Pinot Gris had that inherent proclivity!). Ripe peach and Persian melon, subtly brown-spiced and mingled with fresh citrus juices and bittersweet candied citrus rind inform a luscious yet invigorating performance you won?t be able to resist. I have no idea how this might age but wouldn?t be surprised if it held up beautifully for several years. (I wanted to cry after tasting this and then learning that Cooper Mountain also grows my beloved Pinot Blanc, but had not supplied me a sample.) And did I neglect ? do I even need ? to note that this humbly-priced Pinot Gris picked at the end of October represents absurdly fine value?
