  • Santiam Wine & Bistro Sir Real October Cheap & Creepy Six-pack $89.10

    • 2020 Chronic Cellars Sir Real Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles $16 Lush and lovely aromas of black currant, violet and fruit-topped ice-cream sundae pull the nose into this hedonistic bottling. Those fresh, juicy flavors of blueberry sorbet and boysenberry syrup then dusted in cocoa on the finish, where the tannins hold firm. 92 Points Wine Enthusiast Best Buy for real!   Winemaker notes:  The most gallant Cabernet Sauvignon of all the land, Sir Real delivers striking layers of black fruit with a sliver of toasted spice. Unflinching notes of ripe plum and bright cassis lead the way to a rich backbone of harmonious tannin. Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petite Sirah, 4% Syrah
    • Lot 5 The Big Red Monster Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles $20 Slay it! A quality wine containing Cabernet Sauvignon, rich Tannat, & dark Petite Sirah. This is big all around: aggressive labeling, plenty of production so it is easy to find and a powerful style of wine, including both Tannat and Petite Sirah. Aromas of crushed blackberry and tar start the sip, while the palate picks up black cherry and dried herbs, all riding a glycerin-like texture.
    • 2021 Stafford Hill Holloran Tempranillo Eolia Amity, Oregon $18 The nose offers notes of persimmon, clove, violet and blueberry.  The palate shows round, ripe black cherry flavors, leading to a moderately long finish with ripe tannins. Paired nicely with Juniper-brined double cut Pork Chops. Drink 2023-2035 decant in early years. The 2021 Stafford Hill represents our second wine, based on barrel selections from the various clones of Tempranillo that we farm in the Eola Hills. The soil is mostly volcanic and influenced by the winds of the Van Duzer corridor. This wind exposure helps the vines retain a bright fresh acid profile in the fruit. We farmed utilizing sustainable, organic, and biodynamic practices. This wine offers tremendous value and quality winemaking as our Holloran Tempranillos.

For Colonia Las Liebres Cabernet Franc, it uses fruits from the Luján de Cuyo estate that ferments in cement vessels with native yeasts, thus achieving a bright violet-colored red wine with deep fruity aromas to which added soft herbal and menthol nuances. The palate is light, linear, and fresh with fleshy tannins and a long finish. A friendly and tasty organic red. Wow, I love this wine!

    • 2021 Domaine des Tourelles Valley de la Belaa-Liban $18 (ancient world wine!) Viognier 65%, Chardonnay 20%, Obeidi 10%, Mescat de Alexandrie 5%From: Vallée de la Bekaa - Liban, Lebanon
      Blend: Viognier, Chardonnay, Obeidi (an indigenous grape) and Muscat d’Alexandria. Taste: The 2021 Tourelles Blanc presents a harmonious bouquet of ripe peaches, brined green apples, and delicate white flowers, such as jasmine and honeysuckle. Subtle undertones of fresh herbs and a hint of wet stone reveal the terroir's unique character. Upon first taste, the wine delivers a lively and refreshing acidity that balances the rich fruit flavors. The palate is treated to a medley of stone fruits, citrus zest, and green apple, intertwined with nuances of white pepper and a touch of honey. The wine's medium body and well-integrated minerality contribute to its overall structure, while the finish is long, crisp, and satisfying. Pairing: The 2021 Tourelles Blanc's versatile nature allows it to pair beautifully with a wide range of dishes. Light appetizers, such as a fresh green salad topped with goat cheese and toasted almonds, accentuate the wine's vibrant acidity. For seafood lovers, a plate of grilled shrimp or seared scallops with a citrus herb dressing complements the wine's fruity and herbal notes. Regional Pairings: The wine's Lebanese roots make it an ideal pairing for Middle Eastern cuisine. Traditional mezze dishes, such as hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh, and stuffed grape leaves, harmonize with the wine's refreshing acidity and aromatic profile. Additionally, a dish of grilled halloumi cheese drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice or a plate of kibbeh, a mixture of bulgur wheat, minced meat, and spices, would enhance the wine's complexity. Check out the recipe inspired by this note below. Vegetarian Pairings: For vegetarian options, the 2021 Domaine des Tourelles Blanc pairs well with dishes that highlight fresh vegetables and bold flavors. A warm quinoa salad with roasted root vegetables, feta cheese, and a lemon-tahini dressing highlights the wine's acidity and fruity notes. Alternatively, a grilled vegetable platter, featuring eggplant, bell peppers, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes, served with a yogurt-garlic dipping sauce, enhances the wine's herbaceous and floral aromas. Lastly, a creamy mushroom risotto with a sprinkle of fresh thyme and grated Parmesan cheese would complement the wine's body and minerality.
    • 2022 Laroche Sauvignon Blanc, France. $13 A relatively light-bodied wine, Sauvignon Blanc is quick to mature in the bottle and is usually best within a few years of harvest. This quick turn-around has made it a popular varietal with winemakers who are just starting out.
