Featuring:

2014 Tricky Rabbit Sauvignon Blanc – Carmenere blend, Valle Del Maule, Chile

90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Carmenere
Fresh citrus notes mingled with pineapple and fresh herbs. Nice acidity, balanced mouthfeel, citrus & mineral finish.

2011 J Christopher Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon

This blends together grapes from several vineyard sites in three AVAs. It opens with a bouquet of milk chocolate and mocha, leading to a tart cranberry flavor. There’s are hints of herb and bark in the finish. This is designed as a fruit-driven, drink now, wine. ~WE.

2011 Gran Passione Salice Salentino Reserva, DDOC, Italy

Aromas of Bing cherries, wild herbs and brambles that are followed by flavors of such red fruits as cherries, rhubarb and cranberries with hints of smokiness. This medium-bodied wine has the acidity that gives it the brightness

Stratton Lummis, Lot Four, ‘The Riddler’ red blend, Napa County, California

Hints of bright wild raspberries mixed with fresh plums and violets. Red fruit flavors linger endlessly on your palette. Fantastic California red blend.

2011 Taft Street Old Vine Zinfandel, Alexander Valley, California

Brilliant depth of color, with intriguing aromas of boysenberry and plum. Wild berry flavors are layered with a range of spices – black pepper, clove, and tea. The wine shows both style and structure, with nicely balanced tannins adding their own intriguing component to the dark fruit.
