Mark West Pinot Noir
Enticing aromas of strawberry/rhubarb pie, raspberry preserves and cranberry, with barrel notes of vanilla cream and baking spices. The sweet entry of strawberry and plum fruit flavors is followed by a juicy, boysenberry middle and cherry, cola berry finish. Oak aging contributes a touch of cardamom spice and rounds out the palate. Easy drinking Pinot perfect for any dining occasion or simply enjoy by the glass.

Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
This is a lush, ripe Montepulciano with black berry and cherry note and a touch of spice. The palate has good balance and a touch of tart cherry in both the palate and finish.
Sauvignon Blanc - Value
Dry Creek Vineyard Dry Fume Blanc
This new vintage harkens back to the early days of Fumé Blanc at Dry Creek Vineyard. At first swirl, pungent grassy aromas framed by kaffir limes leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine displays racy citrus characters along with granny smith apples, Meyer lemon and orange zest. The grassy elements repeat on the finish with acidity that is both refreshing and brisk. Dave Stare pioneered this style back in 1972 and this wine certainly carries forward all of those old school elements. Simply delicious!
Italian White - Value
Clean, fresh, and zesty with citrusy flavors of lime and lemon. Also touches of pear, apple, and mineral, with crisp acidity. This is a simple white that has advanced polish and a surprisingly lengthy finish. Have it as an aperitif, or match it with with sushi, broiled fish or chicken dishes, or pork. A fine alternative to Pinot Grigio.
