TOP SHELF SELECTION:

Ridge Geyserville 2013 Red Blend - Sonoma County. “Spicy red and black fruit; palate is medium bodied, excellent spicy black fruit, primary but with a lot of depth; medium-long finish. Very enjoyable.” Varietals: 73% Zinfandel, 17% Carignane, 9% Petite Sirah, 1% Mataro. 92 points, Cellartracker.com.

WHITE WINE SELECTION:

Saint Cosme Little James’ Basket Press 2013 Blanc- Rhone, France. This wine explodes on the nose and is fresh and fruit-filled on the palate, with notes of citrus, melons and white flowers. Varietals:  Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat of Alexandria.

Brancott Estate 2014 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - New Zealand. Vibrant and lifted aromas of ripe tropical fruits and gooseberry. Bracing acidity is tempered by concentrated green fruits, citrus and hints of grass with a reviving fresh finish.

Markham Vineyards 2013 Chardonnay - Napa Valley. Freshly picked Bartlett pear and Golden Delicious apple aromas are highlighted by decadent vanilla and steely mineral notes. Rich and lush on the palate, the apple and pear flavors carry through from the nose. The barrel aging gives layers of texture to the mouthfeel allowing the new toasty oak its own chance to shine.  A MAW top seller.

RED WINE SELECTION:

Saint Cosme Little James’ Basket Press 2014 Red- Rhone, France. Aromas and flavors of Provencal herbs, pepper, cherry, and hint of apricots emerge from this medium bodied wine.This is a fruit-forward wine but with plenty of structure and old-world earthiness, made in a rustic style. Varietal: 100% Grenache.

Beran 2012 Zinfandel - California. Deep, rich flavors of blackberry, spice, oak, and black pepper. Full-bodied with a richly textured mouthfeel, it finishes with an expansive array of additional dark raspberry and plum flavors.

Seven Falls Cellars 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - Wahluke Slope, Washington. Ripe black cherry and boysenberry layered with notes of caramel, mocha and black tea. Concentrated, full body with a smooth lasting finish. A MAW top seller.

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!
