McKinley Springs 2010 Petit Verdot- Horse Heaven Hills, WA. A deep purple wine with black fruit and lavender aromas. On the palate it has delicious blackberry, Marion berry, tobacco and a hint of smoked meats. It is well structured and refined.


Chateau Haut Mirambet 2014 White Bordeaux- France. 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux, France . Floral and citrus aromas on the nose and palate. Easy drinking, refreshing with the slightest wisp of minerality.

Oyster Bay 2014 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc- New Zealand. Pale straw green in color with brilliant clarity, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively fruit characters. A concentration of assertive passionfruit and tropical fruit flavors with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is always crisp, elegant and refreshing.

Wente Riva Ranch 2013 Chardonnay- Monterey. "Smooth and creamy with ripe, lively fruit; toasty with notes of vanilla and spice; complex, balanced and elegant." 91 pts., The Tasting Panel.


Devois de Perret Languedoc - France. Lifted rich plummy blue and red fruit aromas with hints of tar and licorice. Medium bodied palate of crunchy fruit finishing with meaty earth and spice notes. Shiraz 40%, Grenache 30%, Mourvedre 30%

Labertino 2013 Grenache Malbec- Argentina. Massive, brambly, viney aromas mingle with earthy, stony notes, creating a non-fruity bouquet that's still attractive. Big berry flavors come alive in the mid-palate, as do BBQ, grilled meat tastes that turn minerally and cedary in the aftertaste.

Columbia Winery 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon – Columbia Valley, WA. Rich and full-bodied,  this Cabernet Sauvignon is well-structured with firm tannins and ripe dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black currant layered with notes of toasty oak and cocoa.

Or choose a bottle from our shelves and with an additional $5 corkage fee, sit back, relax and enjoy your own bottle in our cozy wine shop.
