Best Buy! Mark Chargin makes wine in two states for the Fries family, and this Oregon Pinot Gris is focused on their estate holdings near Salem, Ore., with the bulk of it coming off St. Jory Vineyard. The nose is filled with fruity aromas, starting with Bartlett pear and fresh pineapple, then lemon and lime. Fruit dominates the round and delicious flavors, featuring a pleasant entry of Granny Smith apple, sweet lime and enjoyable grassiness. There’s a touch of minerality in the finish.
