Big Fire Pinot Gris
"With a degree in biochemistry from Rensselear Polytechnic Institute in New York, and a short but eye-opening career in the labs at Baylor University in Texas, Rob started his winemaking journey on the bottling line at Hans Kornell in Napa, California. Rob managed to return to Oregon in 1994 when he became the winemaker at Erath Vineyards. Rob Stuart and his partners founded R. Stuart & Co. in early 2002. He created his Big Fire line of wines to be enjoyed everyday. This wine has orange rind, wildflowers, summer hedge, a float of white pepper on the nose. On the palate you will find mandarin, satsuma and some weightiness of lychee fruit.
