San Valencia 2017 Willamette Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir, Oregon
This Rosé was released from Pinot Noir grapes using the Saignée method. The wine is pale pretty pink displaying aromas of strawberry and raspberry with hints of cherry and watermelon. A versatile wine with food. Welcome to San Valencia!
"The beautiful pale salmon color is befitting a Rosé from Oregon’s premier growing region. On the nose, this 100% Pinot Noir shows fresh red berry notes and a hint of orange peel. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, and shows much of complexity and character one would expect the grape. There is an abundance of red fruit, but additional flavors of sassafras, cola nut, and turned earth. The finish is as clean and bright as the wine itself. It is a wine that is certainly suited to sipping on a summer day, but also capable of complementing a range of fare from watermelon salad to grilled local salmon. 93 points." Martin Sheehan-Stross, Lead Sommelier, Michael Mina, SF
Mira Luna 2013 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, Oregon
Indicative of a cooler-temperature Pinot Noir, it is between garnet and ruby in color. The wine is clean with fairly intense aromatics - warm baking spices, red berries along with a hint of dust and a note of paraffin. Bright on the palate with medium body, which is another hallmark of its Willamette roots. Although the strawberry and rhubarb fruits are still developing, the tannins have the grit of youth, speaking to an ageable wine. This wine received a 90 point rating from Tasting Panel Magazine!
Hamilton Estates 2016 Merlot, California
Aromas of bright red cherries and berries are supported by sweet spice and spring blossoms. The palate follows through with luscious silky tannins, solid mid-palate structure and a surprisingly long and warm finish. The acidity is fresh and lively, promising several years of pleasurable drinking. This is an excellent example of how elegant a California Merlot can be.
Hamilton Estates 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, California
This Cabernet was sourced from Lodi, CA and is extremely well balanced. It displays lush fruit with dark plum and wild berry flavors creating a complex medley on the palate with a wonderful mouthfeel.
Black Shadow 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, California
This Cabernet has a youthful dark purple hue with aromas of ripe red berries, dried oregano, bell pepper with slight notes of lavender and cinnamon in the background. On the palate, this wine has a pleasant entry which continues all the way through to the finish. The acidity and tannin structure are both balanced yet low in intensity which beg for another sip.
