Featured wines include:
2007 Mercer Estates Pinot Gris
Never heard of them? Thatâ€™s because Mike Hogue and Bud Mercerâ€™s new 12,600 foot winery located in Prosser, WA is scheduled to open in summer of 2008. Yes, thatâ€™s Hogue of Hogue Cellars fame. Be one of the first to try the much anticipated release of their new Pinot Gris.
2007 Barnard Griffin Rose of Sangiovese
Bursting with aromas of vanilla, cranberries and fresh strawberries that lead to clean, crisp, bright flavors of fresh red fruits. The brilliant pink color is as beautiful as the aromas and flavors. This is the way rose should be made, so buy a case to enjoy over the summer. Food matches: A great summer sipper to pair with grilled pork or chicken.
2004 Janiuk Red Table Wine
A Bordeaux style blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. It is wonderful! It is structured and yet amazingly balanced with tannins, acidity and oakiness all in perfect harmony. Its lovely fruit is offset by it’s dryness, making this one classy wine.
2005 Bergevin Lane Calico Red
Aromas of bright cherry, raspberry and toffee. Flavors of ripe cherry, blackberry, oak and pencil shavings add character to the mid palate. Elegant tannins carry notes of citrus on the back-palate to a clean and lingering finish. A blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel and Cab Franc.
2005 Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red
Rounded, lush, layered and lovely, the ultimate food wine, pairing well with everything from pasta and pizza to grilled meat and roasted chicken. Fruity and loaded with berries, cherries, cassis, coffee, chocolate, vanilla bean and cinnamon. A blend of Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot, and Cab Franc with pinches of Sangiovese, Carmenere and Malbec.
2005 Helix Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% Cabernet from Reininger shows black raspberry, plum and cassis layered with caramelized oak, a barely perceptible hint of clove and very fine tannins.
