Come taste our wine of the week in-store every Friday from 4–6:30pm!
Mauritson Charlie Clay Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2011
Starts with a complex nose of red fruit, minerals, and baking spice. On the palate, flavors of pomegranate and persimmon are complimented by sweet oak and cloves. The tannins are full yet silky, giving the mouth feel a wonderful elegance. Well balanced, this wine finishes with delicate acidity, embracing the subtle nuances that enchant us about Pinot Noir.
Regularly Priced at $29.99, Father’s Day Special:
Charles Smith Royal City Syrah 2012
Another wine that flirts with perfection is the 2012 Syrah Royal City. From the Stoneridge Vineyard in the Columbia Valley, it offers up a smorgasbord of aromas and flavors, including kirsch and dark fruits, gamy meats, pepper, liquid rock and olive brine. Insanely textured, with full-bodied richness and power, loads of sweet tannin and blockbuster length, give it a year or so and then drink this incredible Syrah over the following decade.
