Rombauer 2011 Merlot – Carneros.  Vibrant and concentrated aromas of tobacco and cedar intertwine with plum and boysenberry. Medium to full bodied, the wine shows elegance and structure as it spreads across the palate. Subtle tannins round out the texture. Clean finish with hints of red berry fruit.


Chateau l'Oiseliniere de la Ramee Muscadet – France. Citrus aromas of grapefruits and lemon skin on the nose. The wine is very fresh in mouth with bitter and citrus tones, well balanced with white flower and exotic fruit at the end.

Columbia Crest H3 2013 Sauvignon Blanc – Horse Heaven Hills.  Upon pouring this lively Sauvignon Blanc, bold scents of passion fruit, ripe peaches, and citrus erupt from the glass. Rich fruit flavors of citrus and melon team with bright acidity, ending with a lengthy but refreshing finish.

Mer Soleil Silver 2013 UnOaked Chardonnay – Central Coast.  This 2013 vintage opens up with aromas of fruit blossoms and Meyer lemon. Bright citrus shines through on the palate, with a crisp acidity and depth that belies the wine's unoaked character. A lingering freshness on the finish.


Joe Dobbes Wine By Joe 2013 Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley.  Dark garnet hues, moderate tannins and alcohol and complex red fruit and earth characters make this wine a classic Oregon Pinot Noir. This Pinot's full body is framed with dusty tannins and clean acid that lead into to a medium-long finish full of tart cherry and rhubarb notes with integrated hints of toasted oak.

Boneshaker 2012 Zinfandel - Lodi.  Enticing aromatics of dried plums, black cherry jam and a hint of vanilla incense. One sip unveils flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice. Smooth on the finish with bracing tannins and lingering notes of blueberry and spice. Full bodied with 88% Zinfandel, %10 Peitie Sirah and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Smith & Hook 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon – Central Coast. Fragrant aromas of plum and black cherry find perfect balance with hints of vanilla, cola, cloves and cocoa dust. On the palate, layers of blackberry, boysenberry, black currant, dark plums and mocha. This wine is full bodied with supple tannins and a long, generous finish.

MAW also has an amazing selection of craft brews chilled and ready to drink or mix and match any amount to take home. Our selection changes every week!

With over 150 unique Bourbons, Ryes and Whiskeys (and a few Scotches!), you won't find a better selection of brown than at Market Alley Wines! And you just never know when some rare Bourbons will show up (yes, we mean THOSE Bourbons!) We seriously have the widest selection you will find!
