Benton Lane Pinot Noir 100% estate grown grapes from sustainably farmed vineyards in the lovely Williamette Valley. This little beauty combines the elegance and grace of great Pinot with the classic forest floor, and cherry and berry nuances of Oregon Pinot. A showcase for the 2012 Oregon Pinots, considered to be the best vintage ever in Oregon. Red wine from Oregon.
Chalk Hill Chardonnay
Sonoma County Oaky, buttery and much more akin to white burgundy, this Sonoma offering displays expressive fruit aromas & a refreshingly crisp minerality that pairs perfectly with seafood and salads. We think we found your perfect summer white. Salud! White wine from California.
Zeni Ripasso Here’s a fantastic Valopolicella with a deep ruby red color and a velvety, full-body with lingering hints of well-ripened fruit. Wonderful for grilled meats, pasta with red sauce, and of course, pizza. Red wine from Italy.
Misty Cove Sauvignon BlancA wallet friendly wine that shows trademark tropical and citrus fruit notes, followed by a crisp acidity, perfect for shellfish, poultry and greens. Great for summer when those delicious whites tend to get quaffed a little faster than normal. White wine from New Zealand.
Chateau Valcombe Syrah/Grenache RosÉOne of our highlights, with amazing strawberry and raspberry aromas followed by a dry and delicate finish. If you can’t summer in the Costières de NÎmes, you might as well do the next best thing and drink their delicious wines. Rosé wine from France.
Gundlach Bundschu Mountain CuvÉe Here’s a tasty red from good ol’ Gundy Bundy, and we mean old, because Gundach Bundschu has been making wine since 1858. It appears that with all that practice they’ve gotten pretty darn good at what they do. The Mountain Cuvée is loaded with lush cassis and blackberry notes enveloped in creamy cocoa flavors. Red wine from California.
D’Arenberg Hermit Crab Viognier/Marsanne
Here’s a Hermit Crab you won’t mind getting a hold of your nose. Not surprisingly this white
pairs great with seafood, but the peach and stone fruit notes and silky mouthfeel suggest it will
be great on its own.
White wine from Australia.
Gerard Bertrand Brut RosÉGraceful and lively with fresh fruit notes lending flavor before the crisp, refreshing finish. A great sparkler all year, but we think a glass or two of the Bertrand Brut Rosé with brunch is an excellent way to start a lazy weekend summer day. Sparkling rosé wine from France.
Hewitson Ned & Henry’s ShirazHere’s a perfect red for your summer BBQs. This shiraz is a classic. Juicy, rich, a little spicy and great balance from the Mourvèdre, which contributes a nice, inky color. The French oak barrels smooth out the gaminess of this Aussie dandy. Red wine from Australia.
Cousino Macul Sauvignon GrisThis flavorful and unique hybrid of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris shows nice jasmine, citrus and apricot notes. Perfect as an apertif or with Asian cuisine and seafood. White wine from Chile.
Gouleyant MalbecThis rich red from the French village of Cahôrs comprised of flavorful notes of black currants & raspberries with a fleshy and balanced finish. Love Malbec, but those thick Argentine reds are
just too rich this time of year? Drink Cahors & let the good times roll.
Red wine from France.
Picollo Gavi di Gavi Perfect for dry white wine lovers who are looking for something a little more exciting than a simple white table wine, the Picollo Gavi delivers with crisp citrus notes, stony minerality and a clean finish.
White wine from Italy.
