Erath 2010 Pinot Gris Oregon: $ 14.95
WS 89 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Light and lively, appealing for its creamy pear and melon flavors, dancing deftly through the dry finish. Enticingly fragranced with honeydew melon, rose petals and bread dough, this wine could not be a lovelier example of one of Oregon’s favorite varietals. Flavors of green apple, Meyer lemon and a hint of banana offer a mouth-watering juicy palate. The clean, brisk finish begs another luscious fruit-filled sip.

Gainey 2010 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills: $ 24.95
Fresh fruit, bright acidity and perfectly balanced flavors of red raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and Bing cherries accented by the intriguing Asian spicy tones.

Tamarack 2006 Sagemoor Vineyard Reserve Columbia Valley: $ 36.95
WA 93 Pts.  - The 2006 Sagemoor Vineyards Reserve Blend is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Franc sourced from Sagemoor’s finest sites and aged in 63% new French oak. Deep purple in color, it surrenders a fragrant nose of Asian spices, incense, violets, tobacco, herbs, black currant, and blackberry. Dense, rich, and layered bordering on opulent, it is already complex with another 5-6 years of aging potential.

Freemark Abbey 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley: $ 27.95
Freemark Abbey's entry-level Cabernet has been a hit with us for the last few vintages, plenty of fruit with notes of cocoa, allspice, and cigar with a generous mouth-feel, silky tannins, and a lingering finish.

Treana 2009 Paso Robles Red Wine: $ 29.95
JS 92 Pts, IWC 91 Pts - Winemaker Notes -  The 2009 Treana Red, our flagship wine, has a deeply extracted, ruby hue and displays up-front aromas of ripe, dark fruit and exotic spice. Depth and power come from the Cabernet, while a Syrah component lends inviting fleshiness. The wine’s full mouthfeel leads to a silky, lasting finish. Luxurious and well balanced now, the 2009 Treana Red will continue to age beautifully for the next 10 -12 years.

Rock Wall 2010 Zinfandel Monte Rosso: $ 32.95
For you Zin fans, this is a no-brainer.  Monte Rosso is possibly one of the finest sites for old-vine Zin, this is the stuff that Kent Rosenblum built his empire on. This vineyard sits 1600 feet above Sonoma Valley and the Rock Wall's Zinfandel vines were planted in 1904.  These vines have survived earthquakes, world wars, prohibition, depressions, and droughts.  The wine produced from this vineyard is rich and character driven.  Incredibly bright with ripe raspberry, creamy marion blackberry, vanilla, chocolate, honeycomb and spice.
