Friday's Wines!!
Kettmeir Pinot Grigio $23.99

91 Points James Suckling!  
"A pinot grigio with lots of dried apple, pear and hints of lemon. Some stone and steel, too.
It’s medium-to full-bodied with creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Some licorice undertones. Drink now." 

Winemaker's notesThis wine has a bright golden hue with a refreshing nose that integrates classic pear and apple fragrances with elegant hints of floral and citrus. The palate, dry on entry, reveals substantial structure and lingering, refreshing savoriness that make this a versatile wine of outstanding personality.  A fine aperitif that is also a superb match for seafood salads, meat or fish-based starters served with succulent sauces, full-flavored soups, and white meats.

Vietti Nebbiolo"Perbacco" $29.99
Medium deep ruby color. Quite intense and generous fruity nose (red berries) along with floral and spicy notes, a hint of menthol and hard candy. On the pallet medium bodied, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and quite powerful when young, evolving to a complex and elegant, very well balanced wine with ageing. The tannins are harmoniously integrated in the fruit structure of the wine. Long lasting aftertaste with good freshness.  Pair with hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses.

Saturday's Wines!!
Cuvaison Chardonnay $29.99

90 Points Wine Spectator!  
"Crisp acidity backs the freshly cut green apple and Asian pear flavors, which feature a lithe texture. 
Minerally accents emerge midpalate, with a smoky, toasty finish. Drink now through 2025." 

Winemaker's notes: A long, cool growing season, ideal for cool climate varieties, delivered wines of structure, focus and shimmering elegance. The 2018 Estate Chardonnay delights with notes of hazelnut, honeysuckle, apricot and quince. The hints of brioche and vanilla surf a wave of citrusy, bright fruit and a long, creamy finish.

Substance Cabernet Sauvignon, Jack's Vineyard $49.99
91 Points Wine Advocate!  
"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack’s Vineyard opens to an expressive, dark-fruited nose of blackberries, currant, cassis and subtle dusty florals. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is clean and correct with a balanced mid-palate and a bright and juicy finish." 
Winemaker's notes2017 was a fantastic year for making wine with a cool spring and a fair amount of rain. Washington had an ideal spring for heathy vines. The moderate temperatures during summer were perfect for small clusters and yet delayed veraison into the fall where we had a consistent ripening season that allowed us to hang the fruit for perfect tannin and flavor without losing acidity or acquiring too much alcohol. Overall it was a vintage to remember.
