Anne Amie Vineyards 2014 Huntington Hill Rosé of Pinot Gris
Yeah, so Pinot Gris is a red-skinned grape...
Rosé selection curated by Kaitlin Ohlinger, The Wine Snob.
Located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, Anne Amie boasts one of the best views in the Valley. Once you drive up that driveway, you're not going to want to leave. Ever.
Purchased by philanthropist Dr. Robert Pamplin in 1999, Anne Amie's ship is carefully steered by winemaker Thomas Houseman. Fully committed to sustainable vineyard practices, all of Anne Amie's fruit comes from both LIVE certified and Salmon Safe vineyards. Their Cuvée A line, year in and out, offers some of the best values in the Valley, in my humble opinion. Their recently launched sparkling wine is equally fantastic.

2014 Huntington Hill Rosé of Pinot Gris
This is a style of Pinot Gris that you don’t see every day! Gris being a red-skinned grape, it is both entirely possible AND entirely delicious to make into pink wine. Bless the folks at Anne Amie for committing to this. I shudder to think the amount of times they’ve uttered the phrase, “yeah, so Pinot Gris is actually a red-skinned grape…” to a perplexed tasting room audience. Mad props.
Whole-cluster pressed and partially fermented in neutral oak, this wine has a bright burst of nectarines, plums, apricots and other orchard fruits upon first sip. In the mid-palate you will be treated to a nice tongue-tingling pop of spice; nutmeg, fresh rosemary and white pepper. This wine is like a secret weapon, ready to shock and delight even the most astute or -- dare I say -- snobby wine drinkers.
