Captivating wines from
Oregon & Washington
2015 Charles and Charles Rosé
The most complete Rosé made to date. The aromatic lift, balance of fruit, minerality and herbal complexity has never been so in tune. Aromas of cherry, wild raspberry, blood orange, rhubarb, salt and Herbs de Provence carry over the palate, leading nicely into a bright acidity that builds as it refreshes.
The color is a pale yet vibrant fuchsia.
(Syrah 61%, Mourvedre 12%, Grenache 10%, Cabernet Sauvignon 7%, Cinsault 7%, Counoise 3%)
Michelle Brut NV
Pour this blind next to something French or one of the California big boys. You might be surprised! One of the industry's strongest performers in sparkling wines, the Domaine Ste. Michelle Cuvee Brut shows fine balance and style; plenty of fruit to keep the palate happy and a keen crispness to enhance food pairing with shellfish or poultry

2014 Planet Oregon Pinot Noir
Oregon Certified Sustainable grapes. 90 Points from Wine Spectator. Here's what they say: "Dark and spicy, sleek in texture, with clove and white pepper overtones
lingering against hints of tobacco."
A wonderful Oregon Pinot Noir for under $20!
