The Wines!!

Willakenzie Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, 2017 $22.99
All stainless, no malolactic and widely available distribution make this a pure-blooded warm weather go-to white wine. It's young and still a bit yeasty, aromatic with scents of seeds and grains. Tightly wound fruit flavors of apple and green melon come with good depth and texture.
Mercer Reserve Chardonnay, Horse Heaven Hills, 2015 $32.99
Barrel fermentation and sur lie aging has created a Chardonnay that is both elegant and robust.  Flavors of caramelized apricots in a honey glaze, dusted with saffron and served with vanilla bean ice cream continue through the finish.
Erath Resplendent Pinot Noir, Oregon, 2015 $19.99
Luscious loganberry, Bing cherry and rising bread dough waft forth with a pleasing hint of caramel and aromatic sandalwood. The smooth, weighty palate offers cherry candy, pomegranate, candied orange peel and a touch of anise concluding with a nicely uplifting finish."
Drumheller Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley , 2015 $14.99
The aromas of plum and blue fruit bring appeal but don't seem entirely varietal. Flavors are sweet, backed by lightly tacky-feeling tannins. It delivers easy-drinking enjoyment, though characteristics of the variety seems hard to find.
K Vintners Motor City Kitty Syrah, Washington State, 2015 $39.99
With all the depth and richness you've come to expect from this single vineyard bottling - black cherry, earth, roasted meat, even charcoal abounds add dried herb. A thread of minerality and it all comes together in an exact and generous expression that speaks volumes as to why Washington Syrah is great!

Evil Twin Even More Pecan Pie Jesus Imperial Stout $4 pack $18.99

People – this is the taste of rare!
