Concern Worldwide Pinot Gris 2017

IMG_3626The Tasting Room Profile, $15


Aaron: This has a mango, guava, and generally tropical nose.  The flavor is crisp but a little wider than a brisk pinot gris.  The light melon and shitake mushroom flavors were surrounded by tons of fruit making it pretty easy drinking.  89 points

Teri: This wine isn’t extraordinary but nice and the winemaker supports a good cause. There is apricot on the nose and the wine brings flavors of mixed fruit and citrus: apricot, pineapple, and lemon. Overall very refreshing. 89 points

Aaron: I was impressed with this Chardonnay.  The nose was fruity and tropical with pineapple and the flavor was sweet with honey and syrup.  To avoid an overly sweet experience, this wine adds butter and cream with lots of fruit making it easy to drink and easier to enjoy.  91 points

Teri: Very fragrant honeydew smell greats you first followed by the flavors of pear, stone fruit, tropical citrus, and vanilla. Great flavor and very easy to drink with a nice weight and body to the white wine. 90 points 

Champignon Pinot Noir 2015

Cellar Tracker Info 


Aaron: This bright red color of this wine was mirrored on the nose. Tons of cherry clouded the nostrils but the body was light (though not watery).  There were fruit flavors with some leathery vanilla and a bit of earthiness which grew on me after a while.  This was pleasant.  90 points

Teri: This pinot has a medium body with a long finish and smooth tannins. Flavors blend together hints of earthy bell pepper, tart cherry, and soft white pepper; a pleasant mix of earthy and fruity flavors for a complex but easy to drink red. 89 points
