5pm – 7pm

 

1. Macrina Verdicchio, Italy                                          $14.99                       $12.99

Verdicchio from central Italy is one of Italy’s best dry white wines.  Straw yellow color with green highlights. The fragrant nose is elegant and fruity. On the palate, fresh, fruity and medium-bodied, with a pleasant note of freshness.

 

2.  Mercer Horse Heaven Sauvignon Blanc           $14.99           Sale Price $11.99

For generations the Mercer Family had been growing wine grapes to sell to some of the

best known Washington State wineries before they started their own winery.  The grapes for this

Sauvignon Blanc come from the Princeton Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills, one of the best sites

for Sauvignon Blanc in the Columbia Valley.  White peach and grapefruit flavors combine with notes of citrus zest.  The fruit is lush and juicy in the mouth with bright, fresh, acidity.

 

3.  Erath Pinot Noir Rose, Oregon               $16.99           Sale price $14.99

Dick Erath was among the five or six pioneers in the early 1970’s who believed that Oregon, because of it’s cool climate, was an ideal site for planting and raising Pinot Noir, possibly even better than California.  Erath has also become one of the first Oregon wineries to make a rose of Pinot Noir.

 

4.  Domaine du Somail, Minervois                         $14.99           Sale Price $12.99

Domaine du Somail is located in Languedoc in Southwestern France.  It is a blend of Mourvedre(80%) and Syrah(20%). and offers terrific notes of blackberries, plums, and violets. Deep, rich, concentrated, yet beautifully textured, with lots of minerality on the finish.

 

5.  Mesoneres Ribera del Duero                                $14.99           Sale Price $12.99

We feel that Ribera del Duero is one of the finest wine appellations in Spain whether you’re

paying $100 or under $15 per bottle.  A generous and approachable wine with spicy aromas of black cherry, plum and coffee bean. Layered rich fruit with toasty black-fruited notes from some time in oak.

 

6.  Masi Campo Fiorin, Veronese Rosso                $17.99           Sale Price $14.99

Masi produces some of the finest Amarone that are found in the region of Verona.  Campofiorin uses the same grapes from the region and goes through a special process to give it depth and complexity.  This is not a wine for holding but a wine for drinking with richness and balance and a very affordable price.

 

6.  Domaine Porte Rouge Chateauneuf                 $39.99          Sale Price $29.99

Chateauneuf du Pape from the Southern Rhone is one of the most popular of all Rhone wines but also

usually carries a price tag of $60 and up.  We are always on the look out for Chateauneufs that are comparable to those wines except in price and found one in Domaine Porte Rouge.  2016 was a fantastic vintage for Chateauneuf-du Pape and Port Rouge, 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, is an excellent example of that vintage.
