Deal Of The Month

2016 McCarthy & Schiering Red

The newest version of McCarthy & Schiering Red is a blend of 75% Grenche, 20% Syrah, and 5% Cinsault, from fruit off of the esteemed Olsen Vineyard at the east end of the Yakima Valley. It is filled with red berry flavors from the Grenache, and has depth and wildness from the Syrah. The Cinsault lends balanced acidity, making it resemble a fine Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

New Arrivals

2019 Rosé Wines Begin to arrive

“In the sixth century BC, the Phocaeans brought grape vines from Greece to Massalia (modern day Marseille) in southern France. The wines they produced were, again, field blends of white and red grapes. … As a result, the south of France is considered the epicenter of rosé even today. These pleasant pink wines were the talk of the Mediterranean. By the time the Romans landed later in Provence, they had already heard all about the ‘pink wines of Massalia,’ used their super-connected trade networks to make them popular around the Mediterranean. Even today, the south of France is still considered the epicenter of rosé. “

Victoria James, author of Drink Pink: A Celebration of Rosé

Please plan ahead to order these wines. Some are limited, and they are just arriving now. Call ahead to order.

2017 MCCARTHY & SCHIERING CABERNET SAUVIGNON

2017 MCCARTHY & SCHIERING CABERNET SAUVIGNON
RED MOUNTAIN
22.95 NET

Sourced from the Quintessence and Shaw Vineyards on Red Mountain, our new private label is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was crafted by one of the state’s most experienced and legendary winemakers.  This is a bold expression of Washington fruit, aged for 22 months in 50% new French oak, and 50% once-used barrels.

The blueberry aroma so commonly associated with Red Mountain is complemented by a classic cassis note, with hints of fresh roast coffee and vanilla bean.  The purity of flavor and complexity are exceptional.

When we tasted three choices for our new private label Cabernet Sauvignon, everyone on the staffs at both shops overwhelmingly chose this Red Mountain option to be our new wine.  We feel that it is our best private label Cabernet Sauvignon to date… our 15th vintage!
Consider purchasing this by the case, or multiple cases.  Amaze your friends with the quality.  Stash a supply for summer BBQ’s, or to give away as personal or corporate gifts during the December holiday season later this year.
A total of 225 cases were made, and while this may sound like a lot, past history indicates that it will sell through quickly.  Needless to say, we are very proud of this new wine!

2019 Chateau Lancyre Languedoc Le Rosé 16.00 13.60VS
50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 10% Cinsault
Chateau de Lancyre is one of the finest properties in the Languedoc’s top wine district, Pic St. Loup. This dry rosé is perfect for red wine lovers, offering ripe raspberries on the nose, with distinctive aromas (thyme, lavender, rosemary) typical of the sun-drenched, Mediterranean garrigue. It is big, bold and firm on the palate, ending with a long, clean finish. Enjoy on its own, or paired with roast chicken or pork, charcuterie, or stuffed tomatoes. A serious rosé for year round enjoyment!
