Summer Wines Release Party at Carlson Creek

  • Carlson Creek Tasting Room 4142 North Marshall Way Scottsdale, AZ, 85251 United States (map)

Join us on Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 5-8 p.m. at our Scottsdale tasting room as we host our first-ever dual release to debut our new summer wines, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc and 2015 Chardonnay.  The release party will include complimentary tastes of the new vintages, paired with light bites, live music and conversation with co-owner and winemaker Robert Carlson III. A little about the wines: 

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc ($19/bottle) starts with a citrus, herbaceous nose followed by a refreshing, smooth taste with good acidity and a long finish; a classical Sauvignon Blanc. It pairs well with everything from oysters and herb-roasted chicken to caprese bruschetta. 

The 2015 Chardonnay ($23/bottle) features a nose of honey, white blossom and apricot with a silky, round finish and a kiss of oak. A perfect pairing with Dover sole in a buttery cream sauce with seasonal vegetables.
