Gramona Gessami 2016
Appearance: Pale green with brilliant highlights. Nose: Great aromatic intensity reminiscent of a walk in the springtime. It evokes the cool, fresh air, a bunch of white flowers, jasmine, and orange blossom. Aromas of chamomile tea and linden infusions. Apricots, peaches, a citrus breeze. All bound up in a very fragrant, fresh halo. Palate: Pleasant on entry, light bodied and silky on the palate. Fantastic freshness on the finish. The balance of its fruity and floral character is such that it shifts between delicate softness and structure, smoothness and freshness. Food Pairings: Appetizers, salads, and grilled vegetables. All kinds of fish or seafood. Very good with Japanese food. Rice, paellas.
Beckmen Vineyards Cuvee Le Bec 2015A magnificent Cuvee le Bec vintage crafted with 43% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre, and 8% Counoise, the blend leans heavily on Grenache compared to the Syrah-dominate 2013 and 2014 vintages. The flavors and aromas are brighter with more red-spectrum fruits, and complex layers of spices, earth, and pepper. A very elegant blend, this vintage shows a little higher acidity which keeps the wine bright and helps to lengthen the very long finish. Honestly, one of my favorite Cuvee le Bec's to date! Enjoy from 2017 - 2024.
Chateau les Valentines Le Caprice de Clémentine Rosé 2016A pale pink hue, and aromas of pink grapefruit, strawberry, white peach, and wet stones. Wild strawberry and citrus flavors combined with a deep minerality in the mouth leads to a soft finish. This is a fruity wine that is fresh all the way through.
Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir 2014The 2014 edition of our Estate Pinot Noir packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors. Beginning with the nose one encounters delicate rose petal, strawberry jam, and blackberry cobbler. Ten months of barrel age lends a sweetness that balances the supple tannin from this exceptional vintage producing an intense full bodied Pinot Noir. The hallmark of Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir is the texture, and this wine delivers with a supple and silky mouth-feel guaranteed to please. This Pinot can be enjoyed as an aperitif or matched with a diverse group of dishes such as beef, poultry, pork or grilled salmon, prepared in a variety of culinary styles.
Gerard Bertrand Perles De Sauvignon Blanc 2017The Sauvignon is characterized by its attractive citrus, and sometimes menthol, aromas and is nicely rounded on the palate. The ageing of a part of the wine in oak barrels gives structure and length in mouth. Food Pairing: Serve at 8-10°C as an aperitif, or with shellfish, grilled fish or fresh goat's cheese.
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.
Montinore Pinot Gris 2016The 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 2016Eye: Beautiful concentration, with rich hues of dark crimson, raspberry-red at the edges Nose: An impressive nose of strawberry and vanilla, with accents of cinnamon and smoke Palate: A complete package: thick, rich and concentrated upon entrance, moving into notes of ripe fruits (strawberry and blueberry), the finish is long and elegantly spicy, ending with hints of dark cherries, espresso and chocolate
