2016 Château Fortia Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Baron ($42)
“Rocking aromas and flavors of garrigue, kirsch liqueur, dried flowers, and spice. Deep, medium to full-bodied, elegant and weightless on the palate, it’s the finest example of this cuvée since the 2003. The blend is 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 15% Mourvèdre. Despite the high Syrah part, it just screams Grenache.” ~Jeb Dunnuck, 94-points.
2016 Shulman Estate Betty Lou Red Wine Walla Wally Valley ($40)
“This 100% Cabernet possesses all of the traits you have been looking for: poise, balance and elegance. Supple tannins, bright acid, and dark-red fruits with aromas of crushed berries and licorice. Subtle spice and smoke add to the complexity of this energetic ager. Proceeds from each bottle sold will be donated to City of Hope in loving memory of Leschi Market founders Betty Lou and S. Leonard Shulman.” ~Winemaker notes.
2018 Paetra Pinot Noir Eola Amity Hills Oregon ($23)
“Our 2018 Paetra Pinot Noir is fresh and elegant with moderate alcohol and a long finish. It is very red-fruited (strawberry, raspberry) and aromatic with notes of rose and hibiscus. The best vintage of 2018 produced a special Pinot Noir of lighter and brighter character with soft tannins.” ~Winemaker notes.
2017 Lydian by Avennia GSM Columbia Valley ($23)
First Release. The Lydian GSM is the first of a complete line up of wines that it will be releasing each year of second labels. “Fresh and lively on the palate, with strawberry, red cherry, and hints of savory earth, fresh mint, and lavender. A delicious wine. A blend of 53% Mourvèdre, 26% Syrah and 21% Grenache.” ~Chris Peterson, Winemaker.
2017 Leschi Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette Valley ($20)
“Leschi Cellars is proud to introduce Pinot Noir to our stable of wines. This one of a kind Pinot Noir accurately captures the elegance and complexity created by the volcanic soils of Oregon. The blackberry and cherry aromas give way to finely developed tannins, mushroom and earth on the lengthy dry Burgundian finish.” ~Winemaker notes.
