About The Wines

Madfish, Vera’s Cuvée Sparkling White
This has enough fruit to stand up to yams or be the perfect party starter. The bouquet shows Chardonnay’s fresh citrus and mineral notes and Pinot Noir’s soft plush red berries. On the palate, these primary fruit notes are enriched with freshly baked pastries and a creamy texture. A rich style. – 90 pts James Halliday.
(Regularly $26.00)

Forge Cellars, Riesling Classique 2014
This has a plump core of yellow apple and melon flavors, offset by hints of lemon zest and apple skin along the edges. A light fennel note leaves a tangy hint on the finish as this opens steadily in the glass. Forge Cellars makes some of the best Riesling and Pinot Noir in the Finger Lakes of New York.  – 91 pts. Wine Spectator.
(Regularly $26.99)

Castello di Bossi, Toscana Rosato 2015
A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from 40-year-old vines. On the nose, it immediately asserts its Italian heritage with aromas of dusty earth and Mediterranean herbs layered over fresh cherries and tart cranberry. On the palate, the wine shows a defined structure with bright acidity and brilliant depth of flavor. The finish is long and balanced.
$15.20 (Regularly $19.00)

Cloudline, Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014
Vinified under the careful eye of consulting winemaker Véronique Drouhin-Boss, Cloudline has quietly become one of Oregon’s most successful brands, and the Pinot Noir remains true to its reputation for high-quality and value. Given our love for Pinot Noir and how well it goes with Thanksgiving foods, this was an easy pick.
$19.19 (Regularly $23.99)

Green & Red Vineyard, Napa Valley Zinfandel Chiles Canyon Vineyard 2013
A rich, hearty, spicy Zin that offers black cherry liqueur, licorice, black pepper, mint, French roast coffee and boysenberries followed by a long finish of spice, fruit, and just a little soil.
$23.00 (Regularly $29.00)

Andrew Rich, Willamette Valley Gewürztraminer 2014
Oregon Ice Wine! This is what I want at my Thanksgiving table. Aromas and flavors that seem more tropical than Pacific Northwest: pineapple, guava, passion fruit, with perhaps some peach nectar for good measure. Juicy acidity keeps the texture from becoming syrupy while lengthening the finish.
$25.60 (Regularly $32.00)
