New NW Arrivals...

  • Willful Wine Cellars 2012 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir – This Pinot Noir is done with Pommard and Dijon clones. Tart cherries and red raspberry are tinged with rose hip and cinnamon in the nose on a sappy palate that nicely balances invigorating tartness against incipient textural allure borne of ultra fine tannins. Absolutely delicious!

  • Trium 2013 Pinot Gris – A real rich style Gris from Southern Oregon. Creamy smoothness, tropical fruit flavors, ripe apples and pear, evolve to a palate with lively acidity and a delightfully balanced finish.
  • Trium 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon – Layered with ripe blackberries, strawberries, wet stone, and pipe tobacco. Raspberry and strawberry nuances lead into a touch of spice on the palate. These flavors continue through the surprisingly long finish.
