SEVEN HILLS OREGON PINOT GRIS’14  Walla Walla winemaker Casey McCllelan continues to confirm his place among the Pacific Northwest’s most skilled and versatile winemakers with this complex and crisp Oregon Pinot Gris.

It’s bone-dry and crystalline with slaty minerality and a long finish of orange zest.”……33.99
