J’s 2007 Pinot Gris was recently selected as “Wine Pick of the Week” by the Arizona Daily Sun. Click here to read the review or paste the link below in your web browser:
Wine Reviewer John Vankat says J Pinot Gris "provides refreshing summer sipping but with the complexity, refinement and lengthy finish that will please serious wine lovers."
Here's what Paul Lukas of Wine Review Online had to say about J's Russian River Valley Pinot Gris:

It tastes just as rich as a good, comparably-priced California-styled Chardonnay, and delights because of the absence of char or toast. 90"
