Hogue Genesis Riesling Columbia Valley Washington State 2014 This wine is a great example of how Riesling can be relatively dry, particularly from the pacific northwest in this country and the Alsace region in France, as well as many of the Kabinett level Rieslings from Germany. Normally $14.99 Special $10.99
Muses Estate Savatiano Greece 2011 Savatiano is one of the many grape varieties from Greece that is unfamiliar to most Americans, but is a good compromise for those who like the weight of Chardonnays, though not the creaminess. This wine is crisp and clean and would be fantastic on the deck after a workout or working in the yard. $12.99
Brunlmayer Gruner Veltliner Alte Reben Kamptal Osterreich Austria 2002 Gruner Veltliner is the primary white grape of Austria much the same that Riesling is to Germany. This wine is crisp and clean with rich notes due to the age. It has a touch of sweetness, just enough to pair well with Indian or Thai Cuisine. Normally $45.99 Special $38.99
Chateau Carbonnieux Pessac Leognan Grand Cru Classe de Graves Bordeaux France 2012 This is a special wine, a white that is really worth more than $50 (Just my opinion). This white Bordeaux is 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, a fairly classic blend of these two grapes for the region. What makes it special to me is the rich and sophisticated tropical flavors. Sort of like a premium adult creamsicle. $54.99
Killibinbin Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek Australia 2007 Killibinbin has been a favorite of mine for many years and this Cabernet is no exception. I liked it so much, I bought ten cases on a closeout. It is a lush, easy to drink cabernet that has many more years left of enjoyment. It can be enjoyed with or without food and is at a great price. Normally $39.99 Special $19.99
Alto Moncayo Garnacha Campo de Borja Spain 2014 This is one of my favorite Spanish wines for the money. It is rich and creamy, a pleasure to drink, one of those wines that the bottle just seems to have a hole in it, the wine goes down so easily. This wine is big enough to stand up to most any food, but smooth enough to enjoy on its own. $49.99
Pierre & Remy Gauthier Les Heritiers Cotes du Rhone France 2011 This wine is the simplest expression of the Southern Rhone and is generally a Grenache dominant blend that is soft and fruit driven. I find it to be easily consumed without food, but generally sophisticated enough to hold its own with all but the boldest cuisine. This family of wines is a great introduction to the world of French wines. Normally $11.99 Special $9.99
Wind Racer Pinot Noir Russian River Valley California 2010 This rich Pinot Noir is one of a pair of Pinots each crafted from grapes grown in two distinct regions of the north coast of California. This wine was made by Peggy Furth, who along with her former husband owned Chalk Hill. This wine shows the distinct expression of cool climate Pinot Noir. It is austere, yet once it is given a chance to open up begins to shine with subtle fruit and vanilla notes. This wine and its Anderson Valley complement made by Barbara Banke, Jesse Jackson’s widow make a fun pair to compare for the Pinot lover. $50.99
Mirabelle (Schramsberg) Brut Rose California Mirabelle is Schramsberg’s nonvintage sparkling wine and while not a champagne, it is made in the champagne method. The wine is made using a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. For those looking for a champagne experience, but do not want to spend the money for the real thing, this is a good substitute. Normally $34.99 Special $26.99
Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut Champagne France This Champagne is one of several champagnes that Mumm makes and is non vintage. Is a great starter champagne because it is not overly yeasty and has a touch of sweetness, though almost imperceptible. Many wine drinkers contend that they do not like “Champagne”, this is usually because their exposure to “Champagne” has been through a cheap sparkling wine, often carbonated still wine, at weddings. Faced with this reality who would like “Champagne”? However, almost everyone will be faced with at least one event in any given year that a bottle of bubbles would be appropriate, wouldn’t it be a good idea to know of at least one sparkling wine that is tolerable? We think so, and to this end, we offer a number of opportunities to sample sparkling wines each year, including every Saturday afternoon. Normally $59.99 Special $42.99
