Fattoria di Magliano Vermentino della Maremma Pagliatura 2016The name Pagliatura, meaning "hay," references the golden color of the wine. White peach, apple, and pear aromas abound, while floral notes further enhance the bouquet. A hint of mint adds an interesting component to the flavor profile. Vinified in stainless steel to allow maximum fruit expression, the wine is refined on the fine lees for 3 months. Although bottle aged for an additional 6 months, this wine remains fresh. A savory wine to enjoy with a meal.
Tre Fili Pinot Grigio 2016Colour: A yellow straw colour. Nose: The bouquet is intense, fruity with notable character. Palate: Fresh, well balanced with a good finish and length. Food Pairing: It is excellent with minestrone, omelettes, egg dishes in general and fish.
Gerard Bertrand Perles De Sauvignon Blanc 2016The Sauvignon Blanc is characterized by its attractive citrus, and sometimes menthol, aromas and is nicely rounded on the palate. The ageing of part of the wine in oak barrels gives structure and length in mouth.

Montinore Pinot GrisThe 2016 Pinot Gris is a lovely example of the great balance that we can achieve in the Northern Willamette Valley with this variety. It emerges with aromatics of pear, Meyer lemon zest and fresh mint. It opens up on the palate with a silky and light texture to offer a foundation of stone fruits, melon and bright citrus, with zippy acidity. It finishes with stony minerality and white pepper, with lush and rich texture. As people have come to expect from our Pinot Gris, the 2016 is an excellent food wine that pairs well with anything from salads and seafood to grilled chicken and light meats.
Naked Earth Rouge 2015Beautiful concentration, with rich and dark crimson hues, showing raspberry-red tinges at the edges. An impressive nose of strawberry and vanilla, with accents of cinnamon and smoke. Thick, rich and concentrated upon entry, moving into notes of ripe fruits like strawberry and blueberry. The finish is long and elegantly spicy, ending with hints of dark cherries, espresso and chocolate. Serve with red meat, hearty pastas, pizza and spicy dishes.
Shea Wine Cellars Shea Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2014The best way to understand Shea Vineyard in any given vintage is through the Estate, as the grapes used to make this wine are sourced from five different Pinot noir clones harvested throughout the vineyard. Aromatically the 2014 Estate expresses blue and black fruit, black cherry, hints of rose petal, and subtle spice notes. The palate is defined by lush blue and black fruit with a long finish and fine grained tannins.
Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico 2015The Chianti Classico has a vivid ruby color and a strong nose of fresh red fruit with hints of cherry. This is a well-structured wine with a fruity finish.
Domaine Paul Autard Côtes du Rhône 2013The 2013 Cotes du Rhone was aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling in May, 2014. The 2013 Autard Cotes du Rhone is deeply colored and very aromatic, with concentrated, fresh and pure ripe, black fruit, nuanced by violet and spice notes, and a rich texture. "The fruit was magnificently ripe," observed Jean-Paul on October 9th, "and despite the small quantity of Grenache, I have nothing to complain about compared to other regions."
Landmark Vineyards Overlook Pinot Noir 2015Aromatic and complex with ripe red cherry, strawberry jam, pomegranate, brown spice and attractive autumn forest and floral notes. The palate is crisp and beautifully balanced with a mix of ripe red fruit and spice on entry, with savory tobacco and leather notes and a broad mineral texture on the mid-palate. Attractive fruit, spice and savory elements interact through the finish, framed with wonderfully fine tannins. The 2015 Overlook Pinot Noir is an amazingly versatile food pairing wine that can be served with a diverse range of dishes from oak fire grilled salmon to pan seared five-spice duck breast or with grilled vegetables drizzled with olive oil, a few drops of balsamic glaze and freshly cut herbs.
