Lot 825 White Meritage 2020

This wine is lightly tinted yellow. The nose is full of citrus and minerals - that smell of a wet sidewalk is in there. There is also a trace of apricot and a hint of an herbal note - not full-blown grassiness, but edging in that direction. The palate is very clean and lean. The citrus takes center stage with the minerality staying close. I usually think California SauvBlanc is riper than anywhere else in the world, but this example does not follow suit. It is a bit tart, but with the usual Sauvignon trappings quite muted. I suppose the Semillon helps out in that area. The acidity is light enough for easy sipping, yet strong enough to handle some non-demanding pairing jobs. I think this is actually a pretty good Sauvignon Blanc for people who think Sauvignon Blanc comes on too strong. — 16 days ago

Lot 811 Lodi Zinfandel 2019

The wine is medium dark in the glass. The nose is perfumed with plum and blackberry aromas, with a hint of black pepper and campfire smoke. An undercurrent of lilacs sets off the more savory aspect. On the palate, there is amazing fruit - cherry, blackberry, cassis - along with some fairly awesome peppery notes. The mouthfeel is full, yet lean, with tannins firm enough to do a job but soft enough to stay out of the way when they are not working. I don’t get a color reference very often on the palate, but this wine tastes purple to me. The finish is medium at best, but full of the aforementioned fruit. — 17 days ago

Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Franc 2018

A first trial from our Cab Franc tranche. This concept from Cameron Hughes is really delivering nice quality at a supermarket price point. Young, but elegant with bing cherry prominent throughout. — 2 months ago

Lot 747 Russian Rive Valley Pinot Noir 2019

On the deck on a hot day! Fresh fruity bouquet. Raspberry and other sweet fruits up front. Then a classic Pinot earthiness but with a berry finish. — 12 days ago

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

Special barrel selection for Market of Choice stores - Cuvée Etienne

Aromas of orange pekoe tea, amaro, light funky earth, and pipe tobacco
On the palate, there's a touch of graham, "natural" but clean, dark dusty cherry, light menthol. Finishes a bit short, but it's still a baby. Let's revisit in 5(?) years.
