  • Santiam Wine & Bistro  June 2022 Red Cheap & Cheerful  $72.90
    • 2019 Alberti Barbera d’Asti Italy $13
      Piemonte, considered the top wine region of Italy, being the land of Barolo and Barbaresco, even though these mega-popular wines only account for 3% of the region’s wine production. Ruby red with purple highlights Nose Elegant fruit aromas of cherries and plums with an enticing warm, spiced, smoky aroma given by the small oak barrels Flavor Berry flavors paired with spiced and sapid notes
    • 2018 Falesco Vitiano Rosso Italy $12
      This wine represents one of the best values in Italian wine, and I really cannot imagine how the Cotarella family manages to get so much quality at this super competitive price. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. This informal but elegant mid-weight red offers cherry fruit, spice and balanced touches of tobacco and spice. A delicious wine to pair with any mid-week pasta dinner.
    • 2017 Cana’s Feast Two Rivers Oregon $15
      Aromas of sweet plum, cherry, and blackberry precede hints of fresh herbs and licorice root. A rich, full-fruited entry with notes of cocoa, dark coffee, and subtle savory nuances. Mature tannins integrate nicely with ripe fruit to provide a long, focused finish. Varietals: Merlot (34%), Cabernet Franc (27%), Cabernet Sauvignon (22%), Malbec (15%), Petit Verdot (2%) AVA: Columbia Valley Vineyards: Destiny Ridge, Roosevelt Ridge, Ciel du Cheval, Slide Mountain, Tapteil Aging Recommendations: Now through 2024
    • 2020 Masseria Liveli Passamante Salice Salentino $15

    • 2020 Pendulum Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley $16
      The wine is a deep dark ruby on the pour with a juicy nose of earth, baking spice and dark berry fruit; more dark fruit flavor on the palate; blackberry, black cherry and plum; it is full bodied with a touch of vanilla, and white chocolate into a dry finish. Covered Patio bounder!
    • 2020 San Giorgio Sangiovese $10
      The wine has a nice, smooth ruby red color. The aroma is fruity and immediate with shades of mature cherries. The taste is harmonious with a good balance between freshness and softness, finishing with pleasant tones of plums and strawberries. Excellent with spaghetti! 

  • Santiam Wine & Bistro June 2022 White Cheap & Cheerful $59.40
    • 2019 Rey Santo Verdejo Spain $10
      A nice smooth subtle wine. Medium body. It coats the tongue and has a lingering finish but not a heavy wine. High acidity however it is nicely balanced and not overpowering, just lends a crispness to the wines. The citrus, tropical fruit and green tones come through but are not in your face. They blend well together. This is an excellent verdejo. Rey Santo made from 100% Verdejo from 15-year-old vines by the Javier Sanz Group who are one of the stalwarts of the Rueda region
    • 2020 Saget La Petite Perriere Sauvignon Blanc France $10
      A crystalline robe with gold-pale reflections. On the nose, a wide range of fragrances, from vegetal with ivy and acacia to fruity with peach and lychee. A fresh start, opening for persistent mineral and fruity notes with a lingering finish on the palate. Screw Cap for easy opening!
    • 2020 Lenz Moser Gruner Veltliner Austria 1 Liter $14
      The Grüner Veltliner from the Niederôsterreich region has light, fine spicy notes with fruity hints and a lively, pleasant finish. Delicate peppery notes accompany a lovely body with a dry aftertaste.  Pairs well with Viennese Schnitzel, but also with beef, seafood, vegetables, Asian dishes, and barbecue.
    • 2019 Maris Vermentino France $10
      Very mineral like all Vermentinos, with beautiful notes of white peach and a fleshy mid palate. Irresistible and a great aperitif wine. Mouth filling and elegant. This wine will go well with mixed salads, poultry, white meats and perfect with marinated anchovies on toasted focaccia.
    • Blanc Pescador France $12  
      A second natural fermentation gives this dry and fruity wine a special freshness, elegance, and personality.
    • 2021 Alianca Vinho Verde Portugal $10
      This Vinho Verde has a pale straw color with hints of green. Quite a light citrus scent with tropical fruit of melon, pineapple, lychee, and a hint of grass.
