2011 Cathedral Ridge Dampier Vineyard Pinot Noir

2011 Cathedral Ridge Dampier Vineyard Pinot Noir

Oregon’s Winery of the Year 07
“Winemaker of the Year 09′, Michael Sebastiani”
Michael Sebastiani of 4th generation Sonoma winemaking notoriety and an alumnus of UC Davis’ winemaking program, was lauded "Winemaker of the Year" by Sonoma Sommelier Wine Magazine for 2009. The winery was named "Oregon's Winery of the Year" in 2007 by Wine Press Northwest. The Cathedral Ridge wines have racked up an impressive, long list of gold medals--and no wonder. The carefully crafted wine comes from the knife edge ridge running off the summit of Mt. Hood in the Columbia Gorge of Oregon. High in elevation, approximately 1,100 feet, this vineyard benefits from southern facing slopes with great exposure to the sun and cool gorge winds throughout the growing season.

Long time wine writer Chuck Hill recommends the 2011 Dampier Vineyard Pinot Noir: “A perfect pairing with salmon, this wine offers aromas of strawberry, black cherry/rhubarb and light notes of herb and spice. The palate is not overwhelming but bright with flavors of cherry, strawberry and cranberry with herbal notes of the finish – very fine sip for your river fishing adventures.” (usual retail $32)

2011 Bruni Poggi d’Elsa Cab/Sangiovese IGT

2011 Bruni Poggi d’Elsa Cab/Sangiovese IGT

A brooding beauty from Tuscany, Italy. Purple with ruby reflections. A fruit bouquet with hints of vanilla and spices. Smooth and soft tannins. Best paired with various meat dishes, game, and also served with appetizers.

Blending Cabernet and Sangiovese into a "Super Tuscan" was one of the success stories of 20th-Century Italian winemaking. The black cherry and berry flavors of Sangiovese meld well with the structure and richness of Cabernet Sauvignon, so much so that the blend has spread all over Italy and into the United States and Australia. You can enjoy now but will age nicely. (usual retail $14)

2012 LangeTwins Viognier

2012 LangeTwins Viognier

The 2012 Viognier is particularly expressive with aromas of stone fruit and honeysuckle. As the wine reaches the palate, the bouquet is carried over, but is clearly of flavors of peaches, orange-blossom and honey. With ten percent of the blend aged for eight months in French oak barrels, there is a nice texture to the wine. Overall, it is a wine full of flavor and easy to enjoy, especially chilled.

The Viognier is one of the namesake family of sustainably grown, true-to-varietal wines crafted to reflect the quality of the LangeTwins estate vineyards. (usual retail $15)

2012 Sextant Central Coast Zinfandel

2012 Sextant Central Coast Zinfandel

"Prudent winemaking means capturing the characteristics of the land coupled with the unique growing conditions of each vineyard and vintage. The result is a truly expressive wine such as the 2012 Sextant Central Coast Zinfandel. This bottling is representative of an appellation that continues to produce wines with complexity, depth, and structure while maintaining the uniqueness of the region. Ripe blackberries, crisp plums, and luscious pomegranate juice rush together to the front of the profile. Tinges of cinnamon, smoky crushed black pepper, and spicy hoisin sauce make for a mouth watering mid-palate sensation as the glossy tannins and bouncy acidity become perceptible. Nuanced with hints of tobacco and fresh coffee grounds, the supple finish writes a delicious and lasting signature that is connected to its scenic and rustic provenance.

With fruit sourced from our San Ardo Ranch (just north of Paso Robles, CA) this Zinfandel (75%) was blended with Petite Sirah (25%) for color. Planted on the highest peak, these chalky soils produce fruit of intense flavors and unique mineral qualities. Fermented in Stainless Steel and aged 11 months in Oak Cooperage." (usual retail $16)
