2017 Babich Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Aromas of gooseberry with lifted lantana and a hint of grapefruit. Mineral and herbal notes, white musk. The palate is an explosion of sweet black currant followed up with lemon and spice. Medium weight and textural – good flesh with a zesty finish.

2015 Sokol Blosser Pinot Gris
Willamette Valley, Oregon
This 2015 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris is Sokol Blosser’s signature white wine of Oregon. We press the pinot gris grapes as whole clusters. They are given a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel, which gives the wine a firm, focused backbone coupled with its lush creaminess. Our pinot gris has complex undertones of earth and mineral with expressive notes of floral, citrus and melon.

2015 Evolution Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon
Ripe fruit, acid, approachability, and satisfaction all come together in the 2015 Evolution Pinot Noir. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of bright red and jammy fruit characteristics. In the nose, this food-friendly pinot noir expresses notes of chocolate covered cherries, black plums, and baking spice. The mouthfeel is round and rich at first sip with some good tannins which soften with acidity in its long finish. 92 PTS James Suckling

2016 Aviary Cabernet
Napa Valley, California
Gentle and elegant, opening with soft notes of raspberry, spice, and creamy vanilla. These notes are joined with delicate layers of cassis, cedar, and tobacco, balanced with bright tannin and a light hint of anise.

2015 Plungerhead Zinfandel
Dry Creek, California
“Sonoma in a glass” comes to mind when tasting this Dry Creek Zinfandel. With a dark purple hue, the aroma is purely Dry Creek in nature with peppery spice. Brambly fruit notes with wild raspberry notes slowly slide behind white peppercorn notes and hints of forest floor on the aroma. In the mouth, the flavor takes a turn towards ripe cherries steeped in a basil syrup, watermelon jolly rancher candy, cracked pepper, fried sage, with hints of rosemary, toasted cardamom, and black raspberries.
