Wines For Your Weekend Enjoyment: April Hits

Happy weekend from Marcus and Andy,

Wow, there were a lot of hits in April, many of which sold out within hours (or minutes)! We deeply appreciate your support and trust in our tastes and recommendations.

As always, we trust you have great wines lined up for the weekend and in case you need any inspiration or provisions for future weekends, here are a handful of standouts from the month. Cheers to you! 

Arterberry Maresh Old Vines Pinot noir 2016
$39.55 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($43.95 regular) 
Perfect Pinot noir. Sporting an average vine age of 42 years, this is everything we've ever loved about Arterberry Maresh Pinot noirs, and that is a lot, rolled into one. Perfumed and succulent, voluminous yet ethereal, it's the kind of wine I love to drink and love to share. Exquisitely fresh and silky with a pulsing persistence, I find it totally irresistible. - Marcus 

Goodfellow Family Cellars Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2016
$18.85 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($20.95 regular) 
Andy's wine of the season. This chardonnay speaks to me. Marcus Goodfellow crafted a ridiculously delicious and humbly priced Willamette Valley Chardonnay. Hints of cream, subdued lemon and pear with the slightest contribution of pastry spice. Impeccably balanced, the acidity is thirst-quenching and adds an engaging zip to the finish. Pour me another! A 50/50 blend from Whistling Ridge and Durant vineyards. - Andy

Alexana Gran Coeur Bordeaux Blend 2015
$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 
Our favorite Bordeaux Blend. A Pinot noir winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon is hardly where you'd expect to find one of the best Washington Bordeaux blends we've ever (ever) tasted. Unless you're at Alexana, that is. Holy ___ we love this wine! - Marcus & Andy

McKinlay Willamette Valley Pinot noir 2016
$16.15 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($17.95 regular) 
An extraordinary value. A real beauty, bursting with vibrant freshness, red fruits, rose, and silkiness to spare. As balanced as it is incredibly tasty, when you open a bottle for friends, you'll be amazed at how quickly it disappears. - Marcus

Gersing Cabernet Sauvignon Willard Farms 2015
$33.25 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($36.95 regular) 
Fantastic Cab, no ifs, ands or buts about it. The kind of wine you get excited to taste from first whiff. A bowlful of mixed red and black berries, herbes de Provence, and subtle eucalyptus is comfort to any Cab lover. What follows is a pure joy to sip, juicy and generous, packed with scrumptious dark berry and cassis. - Marcus

We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Have a great weekend!

Marcus and Andy
