New Blowout Wines!
Open Tuesday, August 26th after 4:00
 
Labor Day is just one week away, and we have some wines to go with your long weekend! Presenting the Piedmont Wine Project Wines! Made by Alberto Cordero di Montezemolo (from the eponymous 600 year old Barolo Estate), these are wines made for the Hardworking People of Piedmont. Not everyone can drink Barolo every day, but they certainly can afford the super-fresh and lovely “Asinel” made of Arneis, Cortese and Moscato grapes and the juicy and delicious “Gambai” made from Ruche, Pelaverga and Barbera. And check out the labels! “Asinel” is slang for “donkey” and “Gambai” is slang for “boot”, two symbols of hard-work and dedication. So, this weekend, after working your “Asinel” off, you should kick off your “Gambai” and enjoy these wines!

 
On sale for $12.99, Regularly $17.99 15% Off a case

Talk About All American Wines: Cherry Pie and Cherry Tart!!
Both Wines  will be open Monday, August 25th after 4:00
 
2011 Cherry Pie Pinot Noir
 
The 2011 Cherry Pie Pinot Noir is deep and concentrated. It shows weighty textural richness in its sweet, juicy red cherries, mint, cinnamon and cloves. The 2011 Cherry Pie lives up to its name, although this year leans more toward dark Bing cherries; it has tons of energy and minerality to support the dense fruit. Sweet floral notes add lift on the finish. The 2011 is a gorgeous, exuberant Cherry Pie with great balance and overall harmony.
 
Sale $46.99, Reg. $49.99  
 

2012 Cherry Tart
While walking through a new vineyard for his now famous Cherry Pie Single-Vineyard Pinot Noir, Winemaker Jayson Woodbridge was struck with a new concept: applying his “micro fermentation” technique used on Cherry Pie to three vineyards, in order to create a “Multi-Single-Vineyard blend”. Utilizing the unique taste and flavor profiles of three single vineyards, combined with the artisan micro winemaking approach of its namesake Cherry Pie, small individual lots are micro fermented in puncheon barrels.
.
“Rich and approachable, driven by layers of blackberry, wild berry, cherry and plum flavors. Well-proportioned, this maintains a fruity profile amid firm tannins. Drink now through 2022. 14,000 cases made. 90 points.” –Wine Spectator

2009 & 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Sale
 
From Wine Advocate, Issue #197, October 31, 2011
“Two Terrific Vintages in the Southern Rhone”
(One Excellent, One Great)
 
“Across all ap-pellations, the 2009s are rich, full-bodied, velvety textured, front end-loaded, powerful wines…..The bigger red wines of Châteauneuf du Pape, Vacqueyras and Gigondas will last a decade,”
 
“This is a great vintage that comes close in quality to 2007 in the southern Rhône…..The 2010s will have significant aging potential, which is obvious in the level of tannins, but the tannins are sweet with exceptional elegance and finesse. The ratio of high extractive and phenolic skins to the juice has produced wines of extraordinary intensity, freshness, aromatic potential and obvious longevity. This is another great vintage that offers an embarrassment of riches for this region that has enjoyed a succession of extraordinary years.”
 
We have a few left in the cellar and there are still
a few available at the distributor level. Supplies are
very limited. Please provide a C.C. to secure your order.

Oregon Pinot Noir Update

By Josh Raynolds, IWC

In the eyes of most Willamette Valley winemakers 2012 is a pinot vintage for the record books, and by all accounts the market is in agreement:  the wines have sold swiftly and in many cases are all gone at the wineries and even at the wholesale and retail levels in many markets.  A smaller than normal yield meant that the wines would be allocated, regardless, but as soon as word got out about the overall high quality of the wines all bets were off.  A number of retailers I've spoken to reported that they're selling through their '12s, especially those from big-name wineries, as quickly as they can get them, and that they could easily sell twice as much.  In a sense this is the same phenomenon that pinot producers in northern California are experiencing, the big difference being that the crop down south was usually huge.
