The Wines!!

Stangeland Pinot Gris, Willamette $16.99
This Pinot Gris has won several Gold Medals in west coast wine tastings. Rich and aromatic, this is a departure from your typical Pinot Gris.

Poppy Chardonnay, Santa Lucia Highlands $16.99
This must be the best-value Chardonnay from Santa Lucia Highlands. Fresh and elegant with a bounty of melon and peach fruit and lemon intensity. Decanter magazine

Stangeland Pinot Noir, Eola -Amity Hills, Oregon $22.99
Also a frequent medal winner, this Pinot Noir exhibits the clasic elements of the Eola Hills AVA. If you like Willamette pinots, you will find this the archetype for the varietal.

Sodo Cellars GSM, "Wingman" $17.99
A traditional Southern Rhône blend:
• 45% Grenache
• 5% Syrah
• 50% Mourvèdre
Wafts of leather, earth, dried red cherries, baking spices, and cedar box make for a masculine bouquet. The fervor of flavor hits your palate with good acid, bright red cherry, sweet tobacco, a little anise, and both black and white pepper notes. The body is light and lively with a smooth, round, and easy finish just like a good wingman should be.

Desperado "Suitor" Red Blend $44.99
Suitor represents the thrill of first chase. The wines I’ll make under Suitor will always change. 2013 is her 1st vintage.
These wines are the story of saying yes to beauty that may never come again.
Varietals: 85% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
Cases Made: 219
Alcohol: 15.8% Alc by Vol.
TASTING NOTES:  He made you breakfast in bed. Boysenberry and Luxardo cherry syrup over french toast. Someone from the party left a bag of Norwegian shag. Your post-breakfast hankering to raid the fridge, throw all the fresh mint, basil, and bay laurel over the sheets and tussle again is disrupted by the carnal satisfaction of smoking right here in the rain softened sunlight.
