    70% Grenache, 30% Syrah.

Get fresh wild strawberries and herbs de Provence with a hint of smoked meat and lavender on the finish. Fine tannins and bright acid. A very clean expression of the Rhone Valley. Learn More

  4. Domaine Faury "Emporium" Cote-Rotie 2015

    Domaine Faury "Emporium" Cote-Rotie 2015

    $100.00 (NET)
    Lionel Faury is the son of Phillipe, continuing his father’s tradition of making wines that express the purity of the fruit rather than the character of oak. This comes from one Côte Rôtie vineyard called Fourvier which is dominated by schist soils. Fermentation sees retention of 20% stems and then the wine is aged for 15 months in large oak barrels. It’s ripe and really concentrated, with aromas of blackberry and wild flowers and a firm tannic structure. Drink now-2030. Learn More
  5. Domaine Faury St-Joseph 2017

    Domaine Faury St-Joseph 2017

    Location is key to quality in St-Joseph. Lionel Faury’s domaine is in the northern part of the long appellation and the vines are on steep south-facing slopes on the estate. 70% destemming leads to an integrated stalky character, along with meat, bacon, licorice, black pepper, sage, and blackberry aromas. On the palate, it’s chewy and grippy with a long, structured finish and very well-integrated oak (10% new). St-Joseph at its finest. Learn More
  6. Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2017

    Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2017

    From the son of acclaimed producer Alain Graillot, Maxime. All the fruit (from 35-year-old vines) is destemmed, spending one year in old oak with a touch of new. This is an appealing, pretty, fruit-forward Crozes with aromas of violets, plump blackberry, plum, licorice, and chocolate followed by a tighter palate with grainy tannins and high acidity. An accomplished, balanced, and restrained wine. Learn More
  7. Tetu Rose Cotes du Roussillon 2018

    Tetu Rose Cotes du Roussillon 2018

    70% Syrah, 30% Grenache from Catalan France in the Côtes du Roussillon – this is the perfect summer wine from the warmest and driest of France’s wine regions. It’s extremely refreshing, with a light, easy-drinking mouthfeel and aromas of fresh rose petals, strawberry, red cherry, and pomegranate. Immediate, engaging, and very approachable, with a juicy, fruity core that gives the wine life and vibrancy. Learn More
  8. La Ferme Rouge "Terre Rouge" Morocco 2016

    La Ferme Rouge "Terre Rouge" Morocco 2016

    This Moroccan red comes from 50km north of Casablanca and 15km from the sea, the grapes grown in the Zaer AOC at 450m altitude for an ideal balance between warmth and cooling influences. The blend is of Carignan and Syrah, resulting in an inviting nose of roses, violets, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, and black cherry, with a touch of jam, good grip on the palate and an overall easy, juicy mouthfeel. Great weekday red. Learn More
  9. Clos de Caveau "Fruit Sauvage" Vacqueyras 2016

    Clos de Caveau "Fruit Sauvage" Vacqueyras 2016

    60% Grenache, 40% Syrah. Made by the first organic winery in Vacqueyras, the fruit comes from the lowest slopes on the highest vineyard in the appellation. The wine is deceptively light, as it packs a punch beyond its appealing nose of strawberry, raspberry, and red plum with a firm tannic grip, a grainy texture, a crunchy mouthfeel, and a long spicy finish. An approachable wine that keeps on giving with every taste. Learn More
  10. Analemma Tinto Columbia Gorge 2016

    Analemma Tinto Columbia Gorge 2016

    40% Tempranillo, 40% Grenache, 20% Syrah. Founders Steven Thompson and Kris Fade were inspired by the wines of Spain, and this blend from Columbia Gorge is a delicious example of how Spanish grapes can work in Washington. It has an extremely attractive nose, with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, black pepper, tarragon, clove, and pot pourri, followed by a palate with a firm gripping texture that makes the wine nice and chewy. Very tasty. Learn More
