King Estate Pinot Gris & Louis Martini Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

King Estate Pinot Gris Founded in 1991, King Estate is family owned and operated and situated at the tip of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Their flagship wine, Pinot Gris, has delicious flavors of honeydew, pear, lime zest and wild honey framed by mineral notes. The finish is clean and refreshing.

Louis Martini Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon Flavors of wild berries, licorice, plum and mocha mingle with notes of caramelized oak and baking spice in this elegant Cabernet. A found, plush mouthfeel offers firm structure that leads to a long, fruity finish.

Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon & Evolution Chardonnay

Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon This Cabernet Sauvignon presents vivid varietal aromas of luscious black fruits accented by heady flavors of black currant, blackberry and blueberry with suggestions of cherry, mint, vanilla, and toasted oak. Plump tannins and balanced acidity add length and structure to a richly integrated finish.

Evolution Chardonnay Made with grapes sourced from the Willamette Valley, this Chardonnay is clean, precise and well constructed, with a tasty mix of toasted almonds, butter cream, crisp apples and light citrus. This bottle makes enjoying a young chardonnay wine so easy to drink and share.

J Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon & Pike Road Pinot Noir

J Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon Deep, dark and dense, this wine presents layered aromas of black currant, cherry and blueberry accented by hazelnut, cocoa and coffee. Red berry fruit dances on the palate, followed by a bright acidity and full structure.

Pike Road Pinot Noir Aromas of black currant layered with cinnamon, clove spice, and rose petal lead to flavors of cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, with hints of bitter dark chocolate, and mushroom. Smooth, soft tannins and a nice depth of flavor make this Pinot a substantial sip.

Perrin Reserve Rouge Cotes Du Rhone Villages & Highlands 41 Black Granite Red Blend

Perrin Reserve Rouge Cotes Du Rhone Villages This deep, ruby-red wine offers a beautiful aromatic complexity, marked by Grenache and a hint of black currant brought by the ripe Syrah. On the palate, it shows complexity with tannins still present, but with finesse and elegance, and a beautiful freshness.

Highlands 41 Black Granite Red Blend This ripe, powerful blend offers big, booming aromas of black cherry, vanilla, caramel, and cappuccino. Black cherry and blackberry jam are rich on the palate but also comforting. This is sure to satisfy those seeking robust flavors.

Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee & Bonterra Chardonnay

Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee Refreshing aromas of black cherries and blackberries lifted by vanilla and warm baking spices lead into a light-to-medium bodied palate of more dark fruit, savory cocoa and earth, while dusty tannins and mouth-watering acidity leave a lingering freshness.

Bonterra Chardonnay An initial impression of rich, buttery cream quickly turns to aromas of honey and lightly toasted almonds, followed by tropical aromas of pineapple, citrusy lemon and crème brulee. The wine is refreshing on the palate, with a minerality that is both bright and clean, drawing you into a vibrant tartness and lemon zest.

Martin Ray Pinot Noir & Replica Knockoff Chardonnay

Martin Ray Pinot Noir Flavors of vibrant black raspberry and rich Morello cherry layered with earthy notes of baking spice and sweet cherry bark in this elegant Pinot Noir. Subtle touches of pine resin, sarsaparilla, and salumi carry through, lending a savory balance to the silky layers and juicy, dark core.

Replica Knockoff Chardonnay Enjoy a bright, fresh Chardonnay that’s rich and full-bodied, with notes of ripe tropical fruit, caramel and spice while adding some yellow stone-fruit flavors. The plush, mouthwatering finish leaves you craving another sip.
