    • 2021 Growers Pinot Noir, Oregon $15 (Owen Roe) 2021 in Oregon saw the perfect balance between ripeness, with a very warm summer, and book-ended with cooler weather in spring and fall. These conditions provided fruit that was ripe and full of flavor but with balanced brightness and lively acidity. The 2021 Growers Guild is a great example of dedicated growers up and down the state’s best regions for Pinot Noir. Ripe cherry notes with toasty oak aromas and bursting red fruits in the palate and a juicy long finish. Enjoy now and over the next 5 years!
    • Great Thanksgiving Wines-Stock-up!
    • 2021 Abbot’s Table Columbia Valley $21 (Owen Roe) This beautiful blend first grabs you on the nose with spice and leather. It finishes with nice blueberry notes as well as marionberry pie and wet tobacco, the blend brings medium tannins and bright acidity to the palate. A blend of 38% Sangiovese, 28% Zinandel, 18% Blaufrankisch, 10% Grenache.
    • 2020 Lobetia Tempranillo-Petite Verdot Barrel Aged Spain $15 This delicious Vegan wine is made from Organic grapes; it is a 50/50 blend. A harmonious blend of the classic Tempranillo and the deeper, richer Petit Verdot. All the grapes come from a single vineyard source, Dominio de Punctum's estate in Castilla La Mancha. Intense cherry red color and a violet shaded rim. The bouquet has notes of red berries and cherry. Sweet tannins and long finish on the palate.
    • 2021 J. Lohr Syrah Paso Robles, CA. $14 Overall rainfall for the 2021 growing season in Paso Robles was only 75% of the 25-year historical average, with nearly all the precipitation occurring in January. The dry conditions forced vines to produce small but concentrated berries, typical of drought years in Paso Robles. We began picking our earliest ripening Syrah vines in the Estrella District on September 14th, 2021; grapes from our blocks in the Creston and Adelaida districts were picked on October 6th. As in previous vintages, we co-fermented a portion of our Syrah with Viognier - which brings flower blossom aromatics. The final blend also includes 5% Grenache Noir which adds candied strawberry accents, softens the texture, and lengthens the palate. Mourvèdre (1%) was also included to intensify Syrah’s natural peppery spice.

    • 2022 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier Napa Valley $13 Distintive, aromatic, and refreshing, this juicy white has hints of Fuji apple, lime zest, honeysuckle, and chamomile, plus a core of ripe peach, apricot, and melon. The mouthwatering finish reveals vivid acidity. Chenin Blanc and Viognier. Drink now. 90 Points Wine Spectator. This versatile wine pairs well with several dishes, from light salads to seafood, and most notably with foods with a hint of spiciness—its subtle sweetness provides balance alongside a touch of heat. It’s the perfect pour for the start of an evening with appetizers or a platter of salumi. Also try Chenin Blanc + Viognier with a flavorful Thai curry, a frittata with sweet onions and ricotta, or a shrimp and avocado tostada.
