Quarterly Wine Club Selection

Winter 2020 Selection


Pale straw in color with floral aromas. Pacific Rim Chenin Blanc is vividly bright with flavors of pear, quince and grapefruit essence. It has a drier style, which closely resembles the Loire Valley style rather than a CA Chenin.

Exceptional single vineyard selections from some of their most prized vineyards in the Columbia and Yakima Valleys, WA. The vines from Hahn Hill Vineyard were planted in 1968 on a south facing slope and they are some of the oldest vines in the Yakima Valley. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve a crisp character that enhances rather than dominates vibrant cuisine. There is no oak, no malolactic fermentation or commercial yeast used to create this Chenin Blanc.

Fermented with native yeasts and expertly crafted to portray a true sense of place. Even with a little time in the bottle this Chenin Blanc is still ideal with shellfish, grilled fish, soft cheeses, and various Mediterranean foods.

The story goes that Three Finger Jack was a notorious desperado who roamed the Sierras and the land east of Sacramento in the closing days of the Old West. Nobody knows where he came from, how he lost two fingers, or where he died. But his legend still lives on today in Lodi, California.

Lodi sits at the foothills of California Gold Country, 75 miles east of San Francisco. Its hot days are cooled by breezes from a vast river delta, and it’s home to sandy soils that force vines to dig deep into the ground. Pioneers knew that Lodi made superb wine country; so they planted vines here more than a century ago.

Silky and supple, this opulent Cabernet provides focus and fruitiness that is signature to the vineyards of Lodi, CA – specifically Lodi’s East Side Ridge which features warm days and cool evenings. With great concentration and full body, this wine is extra dark in color and carries aromas that are brimming with black currant and black cherries. The wine is aged for nine months on a blend of American and French oak barrels that provide soft tannins, a smooth mouthfeel and opulent finish.

Polished tannins and saturated flavors of black plums and cherries spiced with coffee and black pepper carry through to the finish. As with most Cabernets, this could be served with juicy steaks, lamb chops, rare burgers, or aged cheeses.

At the edge of the Mediterranean sea, the Oppidum Romain d’Ensérune dominates the terroir of the Ensédune wines. It is characterized by one of the warmest and dryest climates of France located at the west of Béziers. Proud of a thousand-year-old tradition, the Ensérune winegrowers were keen to develop their vineyards by acclimatizing grape varieties from various horizons. Created by teamwork, the Ensédune range is the product of generations of collaboration by winegrowers and presents unusual grape varieties for single-varietal wines. This Malbec is bright red ruby in color. The nose is fruity with hints of cherry and raspberry along with a touch of licorice.

This is a 100% Malbec, a variety originating from South-Western France (Cahors). The crop loads need to be trimmed as it tends to produce large amounts of fruit. It is harvested late and loves red, acidic soils with iron concretions, as found on the Montady plateau and at Capestang.

The grapes are vatted at the coolest time of the day and then cooled to 40°F for cold maceration. The body and aromas are extracted in the aqueous phase, without crushing the grapes. Seeded with selected yeast and fermented at 75°F with pneumatic, Burgundy-style crushing to finalize the extraction of tannins. The juice is finally matured on fine lees for 3 months to create a well-balanced finished wine. To be tasted with grilled red meat or a cheeseboard

Seven Falls was inspired by a series of seven waterfalls that once flowed along the Columbia River through what is now known as the Wahluke Slope. The 2015 vintage was one of the warmest growing seasons on record in Washington State. Warm temperatures continued through the spring and summer, moderating slightly into fall and extending an early harvest. Overall, 2015 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing optimal ripening across varieties and yielding outstanding wines throughout the Wahluke Slope.

The Wahluke Slope is nestled above the Columbia River in south-central Washington. With one of the warmest and driest climates in Washington State and sandy loam soil in the vineyards, the terroir in this historical region is perfect for creating big, bold wines with outstanding structure.

The grapes were sourced from select vineyards in the Wahluke Slope AVA. Malolactic fermentation occurred in both stainless steel tanks and oak barrels with the lots kept separate through aging with blending occurring shortly before bottling. The wine was barrel aged for 13-17 months, primarily in neutral oak to retain fruit, softness, and varietal characteristics. A small portion was aged in new oak, of that 77% French Oak and 23% American Oak.

You will find plenty of boldness and depth but at the same time restraint and finesse. A mix of both dark fruit and softer red fruit are followed by hints of dried fruit and anise. This blend is mouth-coating with a spicy, smooth, elegant finish. You will be able to pair this with pepper steak, lamb, rich stews, and strong cheeses such as blue cheese

For this offering we make our way over to the town of Tezze in the municipality of Vazzola, located in the central eastern area of ​​the Province of Treviso, Italy.  Nestled in the shadow of Northern Italy’s Dolomites and in the heart of Veneto’s famed Treviso District, Bonotto delle Tezze is a winery with ancient and historic ties to Venetian winemaking traditions.  Founded over 600 years ago near the tiny hamlet of Malanotte, the estate was known for centuries as the primary wine supplier to the region’s aristocracy.  In modern times, the Bonotto family’s growing efforts have become internationally known, and their focus in the cultivation and preservation of the ancient Raboso grape have established the winery as one of the most vital contributors to Northern Italy’s wine industry.

For the Pinot Grigio, there is a short maceration (the process where the phenolic materials, tannins, coloring agents, and flavor compounds, are leached from the grape skins, seeds and stems into the must.) with the skins and then fermentation in steel vats at a low temperature. Once the wine is completely settled, it is bottled and then released onto the market.

This wine is straw yellow in color, fresh and floral aromas reminiscent of freshly picked fruit. Properly aromatic with good structure to accompany a beautiful and fresh drinkability that is meant for consuming now.

This wine takes its name from a small town in the north-eastern part of Italy which is one of the most appreciated and well-known of Italian made wine in the world. Cultivations of the Glera grape extend from the hills to the plains of Veneto and Friuli.

In the hills of Collalbrigo, in the Province of Treviso, ancient, deep and warm clays prevail while in the area that runs along the Piave river the terrain widens for the outcropping of stones. The nuanced mix helps to create optimal temperature that characterize the final stages of ripening to give the wine that unmistakable freshness of aromas.

After manual selection, the grapes are harvested in mid-September. The must is fermented in special tanks at controlled temperature and pressure until the so-called “base” is obtained to begin creating sparkling wine. Therefore, during the year each individual cuvée is placed in an autoclave for refermentation and obtaining the tiny bubbles to help give this wine it’s Frizzante designation.

It is a fresh, fruity wine with aromas of sour apple, floral thanks to the hints of wisteria and acacia. It has a pale straw yellow color; it shows a subtle perlage of right persistence. Borrowing from the French, the Italians like to use the word perlage from perle or pearl in French. In French, the mousse, in other words, fizziness or effervescence can be referred to as perles or pearls. This is a great option for those that like something with a little sparkle for celebrations, friendly gatherings, and relaxed nights all the same.

This Prosecco works well with arugula salad, a variety of Italian cured meat, and aged cheeses like gouda, manchego, sharp cheddar, and even light, creamy Havarti.
