New Arrivals

2012 Delmas Syrah

We are fortunate to have a small quantity of the 2012 Delmas Syrah available. Only two retailers were selected to receive the first allocations. The wine comes from the SJR Vineyard that was planted in 2007 in the Rocks District of Milton Freewater. It is a 9.6 acres parcel that has a clearly identifiable terroir. The spice of this wine is outstanding. The slightly creamy and slightly salty notes that set apart Syrah grown “in the rocks” are very prominent in this wine. The wine is co-fermented with 7.5% Viognier, giving it a faint hint of orange rind, that complements the savory taste. It has a wild game and minerals nature that is meaty and deserves to be served with the finest meats available.

2013 Gros Nore Rose

The 2013 Domaine du Gros’Noré Bandol Rosé is a blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 40% Cinsault, and 20% Grenache. It has the classic aroma of watermelon, white pepper, and blood orange. The aroma is striking and the flavor continues with lots of white peach and citrus. The vineyard is only a few hundred yards away from Domaine Tempier, and it was originally planted by Lucien Peyraud of Domaine Tempier.

Staff Picks

2012 Albarino de Fefinanes

Palacio de Fefiñanes has been involved in wine since the 17th century, producing a singular variety— the expressive Albariño grape from the Salnés Valley of the Galicia region of Spain. Juan Gil de Araujo crafts remarkably vibrant wines from this single variety, each having a classic expression of the region. The moist climate of the region makes ripening grapes a challenge, and the wines take on a sea breeze-like freshness. The 2012 Bodegas del Palacio Albariño d Fefiñanes has an aroma of salt and melon fruits. The flavor has a striking peach pit note, with lots of stone fruit flavors. This is a classic wine for Northwest shellfish, particularly when blended in a seafood stew.
