Wines For Your Weekend Enjoyment: New Year Edition

Happy New Year!

Thank you so much for making 2017 a great year. We're excited for 2018 and all the fantastic wines it promises. We trust you have special 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 December. Cheers to you, and thanks for your support! 

Soter Mineral Springs Ranch Pinot noir 2015
$67.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($74.95 regular) 
98 points, Top 100 of 2017, James Suckling: "A great wine that will age for decades. Drink from 2020 and well beyond." And more importantly, we think it's dynamite.

Ca del Baio Barbaresco Vallegrande 2014
$26.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($29.95 regular) 
Tre Bichierri, Gambero Rosso and so good! 1 of only 14 Barbarescos to receive Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) in the 2018 edition of Italy's wine bible, Gambero Rosso, Vallegrande is one of the best values from Piedmont and for that matter, the world of wine. We love it and you will too.

Twill Willamette Valley Pinot noir 2015
$19.75 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($21.95 regular) 
Unicorns exist. Don't mistake a low price for a simple wine, as this displays outstanding complexity, elegance, and brilliance unseen in $20 Oregon Pinot. It seems redundant to say that we strongly encourage you to grab this phenomenal Pinot bargain but what the heck? We strongly encourage you!

The Four Graces Willamette Valley Pinot noir 2015
$21.55 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($23.95 regular) 
93 points Wine Spectator: "Expressive and supple, with a complex core of lively tannins and acidity, plus accents of black cherry, cinnamon and spice that linger toward a minerally finish."

Owen Roe Red Willow 1973 Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
$62.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($69.95 regular) 
93 points Wine Spectator: "Firm in texture, this is generous with its dark berry, black cherry, dried orange peel and tea flavors, coming together gracefully as the finish narrows in focus and lingers. Best from 2018 through 2024."

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