So after a good workout and a long walk around the neighborhood with Yoda I decided I would indulge in one glass….one large glass. The bottle of choice, Arista 2007 Russian River Valley Pinot Gris. It was cold and it is still hot outside, and this is a bit of a special wine (for this occasion.)
I purchased this wine about 2 years ago when Gary and I ventured out on one of your first trips together to Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley.
Visiting Arista came as a recommendation from my sister who had visited and promised it would be worth the visit. Their stunning Japanese Gardens alone made the experience worth it, and their crisp whites and deep Pinot Noir heavy reds were excellent.
The 2007 Pinot Gris is bright and crisp with lots of stone fruit like peach and apricot aromas with good minerality and a long finish filled with honeysuckle. A perfect wine to enjoy while listening to Steely Dan and waiting for Gary to get home. Cheers….
