  • Santiam Wine & Bistro March 2023 Red Cheap & Cheerful Six-pack $87.30

    • 2020 Portlandia Cabernet Sauvignon Big Dreamer, Oregon $18  Deep purple color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate caramel bar, brown butter, and crusty cassis phyllo tart with a round, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, long finish with nuances of dried berries, black olive relish, eucalyptus honeycomb and incense, and mint gelato with chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A warming, supple, and savory cabernet for sipping on a chilly night.
    • 2019 Cana’s Feast Two Rivers Red Blend, Oregon $14 Our wine experts think this Washington State Red Blend wine would be a match made in heaven with these dishes. Bon appétit! Chicken, Veal, Beef, Pasta. 32% Merlot, 27% Malbec, 23% Cabernet, 17% Cab Franc, 1% Petite Verdot. Super supple
    • 2019 Plano Alto Garnacha & Carinena Spain $12 92 IWR - The 2019 Plano Alto is fresh and inviting, as it opens to aromatics of black raspberries, wild cherries, pomegranate, sweet spices, and fresh flowers which all jump from the glass. On the palate this is vibrant with fresh red berries, florals, and spices. This is accessible today, but should continue to develop nicely over the next 2-3 years.
    • 2020 Fortuna Rosso Toscano Montalcino, Italy $17 Just the greatest Sangiovese value on this planet, from the kindest, most wonderful family, from a great vintage, jump on that bottle of Tuscan incandescence while it lasts! All the great stuff. 4 months in French oak, La Fortuna’s master wine making hand, a bundle of joy, really. There are very few producers whose Rosso-level Sangiovese wines rise to nearly the level of the big gun (and $40-$150) Brunello’s, but this is clearly a shining example of one. A brilliant, glowing, luminous, zesty, fresh and shimmering one!! Absolutely PERFECT for every day, all-the-time, burger/pasta/raw vegan salad/carnitas/whatever drinking. With truly no exaggeration, this is the absolute finest Rosso you could buy for $17. Amazing!
    • Lot 41 The Jack Columbia Valley $18 A blend of 70% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc,10% Malbec and 10% Petite Verdot The Jack Red Wine is crafted from fruit grown in some of the best vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley and Columbia Valley AVAs. The wine opens with aromas of red fruit, black cherries, plum, blackberries, sweet herb, vanilla and spice. The flavors are rich and ripe, with delicious red and black fruit that lead to a long silky, smooth finish. Pour a glass and enjoy!
    • 2019 Aplanta Red Wine Blend Portugal $12 Dark garnet tinged purple. On the nose, lush blueberry, plum and red cherry aromas, overlaid with slate mineral. On the palate, a core of red cherry and blueberry fruit is wrapped with hints of fresh tobacco, black pepper and spice. Plush and refreshing all at once. Blend: 70% Aragonez, 30% Alicante Bouschet

  • Santiam Wine & Bistro March White Cheap and Cheerful $74.70 after your 10% discount for trying out our six-pack! Mixed them up if you like, we do not mind.
    • 2021 Anjos Vinho Verde Portugal $9 Nice price for this tasty wine! (Twist Cap) Made by family-owned producer, Quinta da Lixa, this traditional Vinho Verde is light and fresh with an elegant and fruity aroma. With invigorating bight citrus fruit tones, a touch of spritz, and a hint of salinity, this Vinho Verde is truly exceptional with its delicate richness both in flavor and aroma.
    • 2021 Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve Blanc France $13 (Twist Cap) Seductive translucent pale-yellow color with delicate green reflections. This wine opens with a very expressive nose with beautiful aromas combining floral and mineral notes. Well balanced and dense, the palate has a powerful attack and reveals superb aromas of lemon, bergamot and hawthorn before ending with a long finish.
    • 2021 Seven Hills Rosé Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc WA. $15 (Twist Cap) In the glass, the wine is pale salmon in color with a copper hue. The nose is marked by pronounced aromas of white peach, grapefruit zest, and fresh strawberries and hints of minerality. The palate has a light body, velvety texture with flavors of grapefruit, lime zest, pineberry (white strawberries) and peach, finishing with balanced acidity.  Pairs well with Spring sunshine, patios, and barbecue chicken.
    • 2021 Portlandia Pinot Gris Oregon $14 (Twist Cap) 92 Points - Tasting Panel. A dry, crisp Pinot Gris. Bright aromas of Meyer lemon and pear are followed by mouthwatering flavors of apricot and nectarine. Smooth and refreshing, the zippy acidity and rich minerality carry through to a lively, lingering finish. Pairs perfectly with Pacific Northwest oysters and seafood. After a long cool fermentation, the wine rested on its lees in 100% stainless steel.
    • 2020 Fossil Point Chardonnay Edna Valley $16 Melon, white peach, and buttered apple aromas make for a familiar nose on this bottling. The palate is broad as well, with salted apple, lemon and toasted-almond flavors. Perfect with shrimp, fresh scallops, white fish. Fermented in neutral oak and stainless steel.  This wine shows the vibrancy and purity of fruit influenced by the nearby cold Pacific Ocean.
    • 2021 Le Monde Pinot Grigio, Italy $16 (twist cap) Amber yellow with light coppery tinges. The nose reveals a delicate structure, characterized by a wide range of clearly distinguishable floral notes. This Pinot Grigio has a supple structure, sustained by a distinct, tangy freshness.
