      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. 93 Points James Suckling

    • 2019 Ensedune Coteaux D’Enserune Malbec France $13
      The particularly warm, dry climate of Coteaux d’EnsÚrune creates a unique and meticulous harvest of grapes for EnsÚdune Malbec. This wine balances fruity and floral notes. Cherry and raspberry initially touch the nose, followed by notes of licorice and peony to create a vibrant, bright finish. Pair with a decadent red meat to compliment the rustic, dryness of Ensedune Malbec. 90 Points DR

    Santiam Wine & Bistro Sizzling Summer Nights White Cheap & Cheerful $75.60
    • 2021 M A N Family Chenin Blanc South Africa $9 A crisp and expressive Chenin Blanc with vibrant aromas of quince, pear, and pineapple. Peach and apple flavors on the palate framed by a refreshing acidity, smooth minerality and a full-bodied mouthfeel.
    • 2021 Pike Road Pinot Gris Oregon $12 All the fruit for Pike Road Pinot Gris is hand-picked and gently pressed. The juice is then cold fermented in small stainless-steel tanks to preserve its delicate aromatics and finished with a screw cap so that it tastes as fresh as the day bottled. Pike Road Pinot Gris made from 100% Willamette Valley fruit. Primarily grown on our estate vineyards, the wine also includes smaller lots of fruit grown by our longtime, trusted partners here in the Willamette Valley. We believe this “multi-vineyard” approach results in a more complex, flavorful wine. The 2021 vintage was an exceptional year. The timing of weather events was key to our success in 2021. We experienced a bit of rainfall during bloom which helped to lower yields by producing some hens and chicks (variable-sized berries). Then a historic heat event happened during late June which brought worrisome temperatures at a time that luckily did not result in any damage to our grape crop. Growth resumed normally once temperatures cooled with average heat from July through September bringing even ripening to the plentiful small, loose clusters. For Pinot Noirs, expect intense color and flavors bursting out of the glass, while white wines and rosÚs are fruit-forward with great acidity and balance.
    • 2020 Chateau Miraval “Studio” Rose Provence $15 Elegant pale-pink color, evoking a rose petal. On the nose, Miraval RosÚ shows all its elegance: beautifully fresh, it exudes aromas of fresh fruit, currants, and fresh rose with a zest of lemon. The refinement continues in the mouth with a beautiful liveliness and gourmet notes that subtly balance the mineral and saline notes. An irresistible wine that ends with a long finish with lemony notes.             Grapes: Cinsault Grenache Rolle Syrah
    • 2021 L’Ecole Semillon Walla Walla WA $17  Distinctive for its vibrant aromas of beeswax, fig, and flint, with a lush yet crisp texture that lingers on the prolonged finish. Drink now. 91 Points Wine Spectator
    • 2020 Bernabeleva De Navaherreros Vino Blanco Madrid $15  Super fresh blend of Malvar, Macabeo, Albillo, Moscatel grown on grantiic soil. Year after year, one of the great values in Spain!
    • 2021 Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand $16 Strikes a terrific balance between mouthwatering acidity, fresh herbal notes of lemon verbena and thyme, and core flavors of Key lime, Meyer lemon, pineapple, and tangerine. Gains momentum on the finish, where the flavors sing in harmony and complexity 93 Points Wine Spectator
