Gift ideas from close to home

Looking for a special bottle for the wine lover on your list.  Here are a couple of ideas from our domestic stock.  But don’t stop there, come in a browse around.  We have plenty of other options available.

2019 Woodward Canyon, Chardonnay  $42
Old Vine Shard (over 40 years old) from Walla Walla. Aromas of peach, melon, and light starfruit notes marry perfectly with the beautifully understated oak creating a subtle spice and vanilla. Whole cluster pressing gives delineated fruit flavors. The texture and weight create a very nice mouthfeel and leave ripe fruit flavors of nectarine, peach, and apple.

2017 Soléna, Hyland Vineyard Pinot Noir  $50
As with Soléna’s other Pinots from this vintage, both the finished alcohol and percentage of new French oak have been pulled back significantly from the 2016s, to good effect. This wine has fresh cranberry fruit and highlights of bark, dark chocolate and black tea.

2019 Foundation Cellars, The Silence  $38
Rockgarden Vineyard Syrah
This wine is unmistakably from the Rocks District. The stem influence is upfront, with notes of grilled asparagus, Stargazer lily, fresh parsley and flowers in front of black and green olives. The palate brings an abundance of savory flavors, with gravel notes on the finish.

2018 Cadence, Ciel du Cheval Vineyard  $45
38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot
Lots of classic Red Mountain tannins and minerality as well as notes of cassis, currants, dried herbs, graphite, and loamy soil define this beauty, and it’s medium to full-bodied and wonderfully balanced, with a round, expansive mouthfeel and a great finish.

2018 JB Neufeld, Yakima Valley Cabernet  36
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
A four vineyard blend in JB’s Yakima Cabernet. A full fisted but not heavy handed Washington Cabernet.

2016 Joseph Phelps, Napa Cabernet  $65
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is ultra-concentrated with dense black fruit, anise, roasted coffee, ripe blueberries, cedar box and graphite. A fresh and focused wine with creamy texture and a long luscious mouth feel with dusty earth, baking spices, sweet vanilla and fresh fig notes.

2018 Woodward Canyon, Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon  $110
93% Cabernet, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec
Intermingling aromas of baking spice, cedar, graphite and ripe blackberries develop in the glass. Flavors of black fruits blend beautifully with pencil, cigar box and exotic spice of new French oak. The texture is soft but firm with beautifully integrated tannins offering a rich, long finish.

2017 Sinegal, Napa Valley  $50
82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 4% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
This high scoring Napa Cab exhibits elegant aromas of ripe raspberry, plumb and black cherry, with notes of rose petal, cinnamon and all spice. The subtle oak spice tones are well integrated with the fruit and floral aromas in this wine. On the palate there is a silky texture with smooth tannins and long lingering finish. Flavors of candied cherries, and blackberry kirsch are intermixed with secondary notes of vanilla bean, mocha and coca nibs.  Was $100, Now $50
