Our featured wine of the week: J Christopher 2012 Olenik Pinot Noir This powerful wine is from a very warm site in the Chehalem Mountains. It is dark and deep, with an enormous, explosive blast of fruit and minerals on the palate, followed by firm, but supple tannins. Beautiful deep dark cherry, cola and spice notes with an incredibly long finish. Suggested Food Pairings: Fresh grilled salmon or pork.


New Northwest Arrivals

  • Alexana 2014 Revana Vineyard Estate Riesling – Made with beautiful fruit from the Estate Property located in the Dundee Hills AVA.

The Wine displays lovely notes and flavors of white peach, honey and lychee fruit on an off-dry frame with perfectly a perfectly balanced finish.

  • Alexana 2014 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris – This Pinot Gris is bright and lively with a lush mouth feel. The wine displays scents of pear, apple and citrus peel on the nose. The palate bursts with ripe pears, and green apples, with a note of honeydew melon surrounded on a beautiful, crisp frame, that finishes clean and beckons for another sip.

  • Alexana 2013 Terrior Select Chardonnay – This Chardonnay was done with perfect balance with both French Oak and Stainless Steel. This Chardonnay displays notes of caramel, vanilla and lemon meringue. It finishes beautifully with soft acidity.

  • J Christopher 2012 Olenik Pinot Noir (94 points WE) – This powerful wine is from a very warm site in the Chehalem Mountains.
