- This Tuscan Vermentino
has a beautiful clear-straw color with bright green hues. In
the nose, the wine is very intense, with aromas of
citrus, peach, melon and floral notes such as jasmine. The
long finish is fresh and refined. This is a delicious, generous
white wine that is irresistible with every sip and makes you
feel like you’re “Under the Tuscan Sun!”
- This Fronton Negrette
is made from hand-harvested grapes that are pressed
and then placed by gravity in vats of small size which allows
control of temperature stability. Matured for 8-10 months in
barrel. Maximum respect for nature in the vineyard has long
been the creed of this winegrower. Sheep take care of the grass
control between the rows in the winter, and otherwise interventions
- The wine is a blend
of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah sourced
from some of the most famous vineyards in the Columbia Valley.
Flavors of plum, pomegranate, and strawberry are supported
by crisp acidity, and velvety tannins. The palate is deep
and layered, but above all showing a mouthwatering structure.
The finish is sweet and perfectly reflects the marriage of
Bordeaux and Rhone varietals.
- Planted in 2003,
this vineyard is a unique 92-acre site that rests above the
flood plain of the Columbia River in the Wahluke Slope AVA.
Under the topsoil is a 6-12 inch layer of caliche and basalt
that creates a calcium- and iron-rich media that forces roots
to struggle. Called Zinfandel in America, Primitivo in Italy,
and delicious everywhere, this is a rich, dark, unctuous
wine loaded with ripe briar berry fruits.
- This is
a voluptuous, lavishly textured Old Vine Zinfandel that reflects
the temperate Mediterranean climate and sandy loam
soils of the Lodi appellation. With its arresting fruit aromas,
big berry and spice flavors and full-bodied profile, it
will take your Zin obsession to a whole new level. Seductive
aromas get your pulse racing; decadent jammy fruit flavors
light your senses on fire. The voluptuous, saturating mouthfeel
and lusty, satisfying finish will leave you begging for more!
- This sparkling
Shiraz from South Australia has a saturated, deep burgundy
color with a crimson hue.
An abundance of aromas include fresh black currant preserves,
with dark strawberry and blackberry jam surrounded by underlying
hints of butterscotch, menthol and spice. The palate is lively,
refreshing and medium-bodied, with sweet berry fruits, ripe
plums and cassis, hints of chocolate, molasses, caraway seed
and fennel. There is a perlage of fine bubbles that
lift the fruit and spice characters, ending with an attractive,
long finish! Pair with the "Spinach and Raspberry Salad"

September Featured Flight: Malbec Regions of Argentina
Argentina is currently the largest producer of Malbec
in the world, and it is grown extensively in every
wine region of the country, from Salta to Patagonia.
Malbec expresses itself very well in regions with broad
temperature ranges and calcareous, clayey or sandy
soils such as those found at the foot of the Andes.
These geographic and climatic features make Argentine
Malbec stand out particularly for the quality of its
tannins: sweet, silky and mouth-filling.
Salta (Northern Argentina)
The northern region of Salta is one with high altitude
of sun. Malbec from this region expresses a
unique personality: aromas of very ripe red
fruits, black pepper and paprika, with a very
structure of solid, sweet tannins. This Malbec
is intense ruby red with great vivacity and
notes. Red fresh
such as raspberry, strawberry and cherry combine
a spicy aroma given by the use of oak. This
wine can be cellared up to four years.

The province of Uco Valley is mountain-flanked
in nearly every direction and dominated by
