    King Estate Acrobat Pinot Noir 2009
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $18.99
    • red wine
    • screw cap wine
    • W&S91
    This is what I'd term a lighter-bodied Pinot Noir. It's bright & fresh red fruits are backed by a pleasing spice. Lots of zesty acidity, but with a slight savory texture. Good balance, great food wine - a go-to for drinking good red in hot weather.

    Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay 2006
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $19.99
    So delicious! Granted, it's no Burgundy, but it is fantastically balanced and smooth. Wonderful fruit, mellow oak and just a lovely finish. If you like GOOD Chardonnay, this is a wine for you.

    Lanson Black Label Brut (375ML half-bottle)
    Sold Out
    $18.00
    I love half-bottle options, particularly when they are good! This is an excellent Champagne- dry and crisp, mineral and citrus, but with that typical yeasty note that makes it fill the nose and mouth. Great finish, too. Excellent acidity for pairing with food.

    King Estate Signature Collection Pinot Gris 2007
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $14.99
    Aromas of ripe peach and tropical fruit; palate offers the same, backed by what I call zippy acidity - it almost dances in your mouth. Great balance, represents Oregon Pinot Gris quite well.

    Elk Cove Pinot Gris 2007
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $18.99
    Elk Cove Pinot Gris is exactly what I'm looking for in Oregon PG - it matches lively acidity with rich mouthfeel. Elk Cove has both in perfect preportion - a smooth, silky, rich texture of sweet ripe fruits with that zing of acid to make it refreshing. Well done.

    On the lighter bodied style of Rose bubblies, with delicate fruit and wonderfully crisp acidity. Well-balanced, great finish, super refreshing. Lovely as an aperitif, with a light spring or summer lunch or with some take-out chinese or thai!

    I love this wine. It's not dense or heavy like many Shiraz, which I like, because it has this elegance to it that is more uplifting rather than heavy. The little Viognier adds to the aromas and "fragrant" is the right term. Lots of berries and spice going on and something floral in the back as well. Palate is complex and lingering with all the berry-goodness a Shiraz should have, but none of the heaviness. All in balance. It's absolutely delicious.

    Bodegas Godeval Vina Godeval Blanco 2006
    Sold Out
    $16.79
    A delicious mineral-driven dry white wine that has layers of stone fruit (think pear and nectarine) backed by great acidity. Great with food or on its own.

    Eyrie Pinot Noir Estate 2006
    Sold Out
    $37.99
    Opened it up and got huge reductive notes. Went away after 45 minutes in the decanter. Worth the wait - delicate yet savory. Red & wild fruits, spices, lovely meaty characteristic in the palate. Great finish. Will do well with a couple more years in bottle.

    Royal Tokaji Wine Company Dry Furmint 2006
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $14.99
    Excellent white - good, round texture, but with a pronounced acid kick. Stone fruit, slightly floral and crsip finish. Great spring/summer wine, but could also hold up to food.
