NEW WORLD WINES
Sangiovese, Alexander Valley Vineyards '12 Estate Rose, Sonoma County-CA
Let this comely Rose bring beauty to your day; it is alive with strawberries, watermelon, and mint, and captivating with its dry minerality and radiant finish. One sip, and you're lying on a grassy knoll with the sun upon your face and not a care in the world...
Chardonnay, Crow Canyon ’11 California
Apple, coconut, creamy vanilla, oaked yet nice acidity; a classic California Chardonnay
Pinot Gris, Walnut City Wineworks '10 Willamette Valley-Oregon
Bursting with green apple, pear, key lime and tarragon, it's a bone-dry, easy-drinking beauty!
Riesling, Kiona '11 Washington
Pineapple, apricot, and lychee notes, this elegant Riesling has a slight sweetness complemented by a nicely tart acidity
Sauvignon Blanc, Vina Casa '12 Tamaya Estate, Limari Valley-Chile
Mandarin orange and pear scents develop into flavors of ripe peaches and bananas, pleasing acidity complemented by good minerality
Viognier, Illahe Vineyards '12 Willamette Valley-Oregon
This Viognier is splendidly aromatic with scents of pineapple and kiwi, and lush in the mouth with nectarine, peach, and lychee, rounded out by a vibrant finish. "Illahe" is Chinook Jargon for land, soil, or place; it is, in a sense, the Northwest's word for terroir.

Racy and bold, blackberry and chocolate, a spicy wine that will have you believing it's quite a good day, mate.

Malbec, Ricardo Santos '10 Mendoza-Argentina

Merlot/Carmenere/Syrah, Lapostolle '11 Casa "Grand Selection" Rapel Valley-Chile
Ripe red fruit and spices, juicy tannins, and a long, pleasant finish.

Ahh, Petite Sirah...from a winery that is family-owned since 1896 comes this delightful vintage: spectacular body, flavors of blackberries and figs, and an everlasting finish. It's a rich and decadent wine for sure, and my new favorite full-bodied red on the list!
Pinot Noir, Apaltagua '11 "Reserva" Tricao Valley Estate Grown, Curico-Chile
A fun Pinot from increasingly popular Chile, this Reserva features a light body, sour cherry and white pepper notes that linger...
Pinot Noir, J K Carriere "Provocateur" Willamette Valley-Oregon
Lively, spirited, yet elegant at the same time, winemaker Jim Prosser's classic Pinot Noirs have verve and age-ability. His Provocateur entices you with aromas of dark cherries and spice, mouthwatering acidity, red and black fruits, and smooth tannin. You will absolutely love this!
Zinfandel/Carignan/Syrah/Grenache, Marietta Cellars "Old Vine Red Lot 58" Sonoma-California
A truly fetching blend - bright berry with kirsch-like notes, full-bodied, smooth and supple.
OLD WORLD WINES

Negroamaro translates to "black and bitter," but as rosè, this wine is elegant on the palate, pale pink in color, with dark berry flavors.

Honey, candied citrus and hints of malt and mineral; beautifully integrated with a bisquity, yeasty character and bright, tight bubbles.

Mango juiciness, with lemon zest, peaches, and spice, a drier-style Gewütrztraminer from an esteemed "green" producer
Gruner Veltliner, Weingut Thiery-Weber '10 "Animo" Kremstal-Austria
Tart and floral nose; on the palate is yellow fruit, bold minerality and peppery traces, elegantly acidic and supremely refreshing.
Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay, Pascal Bellier '11 Cheverny, Loire Valley-France
This 80/20 blend gives you the best of both worlds; grapefruit, lemon, and apple, crisp and delicate, with a fantastic lingering finish

Featuring white peaches and almonds, this Verdicchio is soft and round on the palate, demure and enticing

This super-bright, juicy red with tons of cherries, raspberries, and a silky mouthfeel simply demands warm weather, open windows, and easy living!

Fig, cassis, and blackberry, smoked hickory, rich and tannic - if Barry White came back as a wine...
Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Malbec, Chateau de Parenchere '09 "Bordeaux Superior" Bordeaux-France
Be seduced by this classic Bordeaux blend...dark cherries and blackberries, great structure and high tannin make this one bold, marvelous red that is not to be missed.

Aromas of tobacco, anise, and mineral notes; dried fruits up front, finishing brighter than it starts, medium body and bold, high tannins

Dried cherry, pomegranate, and thyme, elegant and smoky - Pinot Noir can be a challenging grape to grow, but Becker is a master

Touriga Franca/Tinta Roriz/Tinta Barroca, Symington '10 "Altano" Douro-Portugal
Cherry jam, espresso, dark chocolate-long finish
Zweigelt/Blaufrankisch/St. Laurent, Pittnauer '10 Burgenlander "Rot" Burgenlander-Austria
