Adami, Vigneto Giardino, Prosecco, Valdobbiadene
This is a wine that already in 1933 was selected as one of the best from Valdobbiadene.  The steep green hills of Prosecco di Conegliano~Valdobbiadene are found halfway between Venice and the Alps. This would be worth the journey if not only for its stunning beauty, dotted with castles, ancient churches, and of course, the  vineyards. But the beauty is also found in the glass here. 
Aromas of apple and white peach, almond blossoms tease the nose, with a  soft and velvety mouth feel.  The wine is both elegant and balanced, with a lingering finish of meyer lemon.  $24.99

2015 Willamette Valley Vineyards, Pinot Noir, Oregon $23.99
Founder, Jim Bernau, purchased the Estate site in 1983 and cleared away the old pioneer plum orchard hidden in scotch broom and blackberry vines. He planted Pinot Noir (Pommard and Wadenswil clones), Chardonnay (Dijon and Espiguette) and Pinot Gris. Studying viticulture at UC Davis as well as in France sharpened Jim's viticultural skills and in 1989 he built a world class winery in the Willamette Valley. He makes cool-climate varietals, especially Pinot Noir, now sold in the best restaurants and bottle shops in the world.  Wine Enthusiast Magazine has since deemed Jim "One of America's Great Pinot Noir Producers."  The winery and underground cellar are carved into the top of an ancient volcanic flow, the soil red from its oxidized iron content and well-drained. This unique terroir is similar to the red clay soil found in the Grand Cru Pinot Noir vineyards of Romanee-st-Vivant in Burgundy, where the "soil gives France's most perfumed, satiny, expensive wine" (Hugh Johnson, World Atlas of Wine).  This wine is deep ruby, with intense aromas of blackberry, cocoa and cherry with a hint of earthiness. Black and red fruit on the palate, cola,allspice and red velvety berries. With a garlic and herb roasted pork tenderloin, or wild mushroom risotto... all the rest that glorious pictures requires is thou!   $24.99

2010 Querceto, Chianti Classico Riserva, Italy 
In Italian Querceto means oak grove, which is where the Castello di Queceto got its name. Nestled in a high valley, the 15th Century castle is surrounded by a grove of oak trees, and the quality and production of wines here is de rigeur.  In the classic aromas and flavors of Chianti ~ tart cherry and violets, along with earthy minerals and dusty tannins, this Riserva is an extraordinary wine. 
James Suckling said "Clarity of fruit marks this Chianti Classico with black cherries and blueberries and sliced mushrooms. Full body, chewy and rich. Very structured. Like a Brunello."  (91 points from the Wine Spectator). "Though packed with fresh cherry, berry and tobacco flavors, this is also chewy, with a spice and cedar side that adds depth. A modern style, yet harmonious and polished. Best from 2014 through 2023"  Antonio Galloni points out the value saying "Another gorgeous wine for the money, this Chianti Classico Riserva emerges from the glass with savory herbs, tobacco, licorice and dark red cherries. Here the aromas and flavors are distinctly earthy, while the wine's structure suggests another decade-plus of very fine drinking."  $24.99

2013 Septima, Malbec, Argentina
Septima Malbec is a beautiful red wine from the esteemed Uco Valley of Argentina. Malbec vineyards, planted in the upper region of the valley, are located 3,600 feet above sea level. Hand harvested in the cool morning hours, the Malbec fruit is crushed and placed in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged six months in American oak barrels, with hints of fresh cherries balanced with toast and vanilla from aging in American oak, followed by notes of blackberry and plum jam. Good balance of acidity and smooth round tannins.
 Steak au poivre...herb crusted rack of lamb...ooh la la!  $27.99

Sidra Diamantes de Hielo, Frost Cider, Spain
Freshly pressed and frozen, the juice of select cider apple varieties is gradually drip-thawed to concentrate sugar and flavor intensity. A partial fermentation is done with the must of the apples in stainless steel tanks, followed by aging in French oak barrels.  We will pair it with the Smoked Rogue River blue cheese from Oregon, which is not only one of our favorites, but one of the all-time great pairings of wine and cheese!  You must try it!
