We’ll be closed Christmas Day but we’ll open again at noon on Wednesday.
In the mean time, we’ll be opening some Gift Worthy Wines (they make great last minute presents) as we celebrate the Solstice and the days getting longer.
2017 Bethel Heights Pinot Gris $25
One of the best Pinot Gris that I’ve tasted in a long time. Bone dry and crisp with aromas of nectarine, apricots, and peach, with hints of breadfruit and cardamom. The palate shows the full, supple fruits of a warm vintage without losing the purity and elegance characteristic of our estate. The languid and expansive texture of the wine is pitched against a bright core of acidity, building tension and energy. Organic
2016 Pignan Châteauneuf du Pape $37
64% Grenache, 13% Mourvedre, 12% Syrah, 11% Cinsault, Counoise, Terret Noir
The Pignan has an attractive bouquet of black cherry fruit, loamy soil and foresty aromas in addition to plenty of glycerin, body and freshness. There is no evidence of oak as it is aged primarily in foudre. This generous wine combines sweet to strength and fullness to power.
2015 L’Ecole Perigee $47
56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 7% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot
From the older blocks of Seven Hills Vineyard, Perigee shows its characteristic cedar and black plum structured elegance. Alluring aromas of blueberry, cigar box and herbal flavors are accented with notes of cassis and earth, on a fine tannin finish.
2016 Dellas, Crozes-Hermitage Les Launes $23
The charming, quaffable 2016 Crozes Hermitage les Launes features plenty of cherry fruit, medium body, supple tannins and a juicy, mouthwatering finish. It should drink well for the next few years.
2014 JB Neufeld Yakima Valley Cabernet $36
91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc
A three vineyard blend in JB’s Yakima Cabernet. A full-fisted but not heavy-handed Washington Cabernet.
2013 Renato Ratti Marcenasco Barolo $45
Wild berry, crushed herb, violet and baking spice scents lift out of the glass along with a whiff of menthol. Focused and elegantly structured the delicious palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, cinnamon, sage and white pepper, while refined tannins and bright acidity provide supple support and impeccable balance. –95 pts Wine Enthusiast.
