2010 Willamette Valley Pinor Noir 2010 Willamette Valley Pinor Noir
$25.00

This wine is full of black cherry, strawberry rhubarb pie, vanilla, watermelon, anise, clove, black pepper, maple, incense, and pot pourri. The fine tannins provide a silky texture and weight that envelopes the palate. The mouthwatering acidity creates a juicy fruit loaded mid palate and the oak carries the vanilla, cofffee, and spice flavors through to finish.

2011 Pinot Noir Rosé 2011 Pinot Noir Rosé
$20.00

Initially the wine holds aromas of strawberry and sweet cream, only to be followed by a secondary wave of red licorice, fig, vanilla bean, and cooling sensation of eucalyptus. The weight from entry to middle palate is quite high for a rose, producing a rich and round feeling in the mouth. There is a wonderfully soft tannic quality to this wine that is essential yet most often absent in American produced rose wines. The acidity provides focus and thirst-quenching characteristics ending with flavors of cedar, vanilla, and flint that emerge in the meduim length finish.

2010 Judith Marie 2010 Judith Marie
$39.00

This is a wonderful wine for the aromatically focused wine drinker. While this wine is texturally less hedonistic than the darker Donna Jean, it is aromatically elevated and higher pitched showing strawberries and cream, rhubarb, and dried floral aromas when first opened. The wine quickly shifts divulging new aromas that appear and disappear continuously. Mission fig, plum, date, black licorice and mocha reveal the darker side of this wine. The elevated alcohol from the vintage provides a round subtle sweetness that softens the young chewy tannins and toasted marshmallow flavor that linger in the finish.

2010 Donna Jean 2010 Donna Jean
$39.00

The tannin is dense, enveloping the palate in a supple, well-mannered way. Combined with the intense savory flavors and the lower acidity, this wine pairs well with a nice steak or lamb, two meats not normally associated with Pinot Noir. With aeration the wine shows its fruit in the form of blackberry and plum. The tannins become so silky they nearly vanish, leaving only the impression of fullness and weight on the finish. This wine is quite young and requires short-term cellaring to completely release the aromatic complexity it showed at blending.

2009 Pinot Gris 2009 Pinot Gris
$20.00

Aromas of honey, pear, apricot, pineapple cake, lychee nut, red delicious apple, bees wax - it's all there in copious quantities. The residual sugar in the beginning makes the fruit flavors burst as if you're eating the actual fruit itself, and the wine's texture makes it easy to imagine eating a fresh, juicy peach with its fuzzy exterior grazing the surface of your tongue. The acid is equally high and begins to focus the wine at the mid-palate adding great length and ease to the finish.

2010 Barrel Select 2010 Barrel Select
$25.00

Great aromas of cedar, leather, and forest floor providing an earthiness profile complimented by vanilla and floral remnants. Flavors of strawberry and cherry cola emerge and are supported with substantial mouth-feel and a lingering of dusty tannins with a prolonged finish.
