A tremendous vintage (2008), a tremendous Champagne: Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill.
"One of the great Champagnes both for its richness and its longevity, this latest incarnation is superb. The wine's richness is linked to the ripe fruit and the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend. It also shines in the perfect balance between the texture, the minerality and the integration of the fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but it will be better from 2020 and then for many years to come."

Milan Nestarec has quickly become the star winemaker of the Czech republic.
A skin contact white wine, or orange wine, of the Neuburger variety. Like all Nestarecs wine the grapes are farmed organically or biodynamically. No additives are in this cuvee, the grapes left to naturally ferment for 1 month and bottled without fining or filtering.
This aromatic orange wine is natural wine lover heaven: light nuttiness, light tannins, light acidity accompanied by complex flavours like quince and mango. Definitely not here to make any trouble!

The wines of Franck Balthazar are eu·phor·ic.
The Cotes du Rhone ($22) is a stunning example and the Cornas ($80) is precise, elegant, and truly outstanding.

Syrah that speaks to you.
From a steep, high altitude plot in Saint-Jean de Muzols – the HEART of the original Saint-Joseph; 100% hand harvested & destemmed; Aged in older Burgundy barrels (provided by DRC). Yeeee Haaaa!

Magical MAGNUMS of COS.
This mouthful of a red was both vinified and aged in clay amphorae – an ancient practice that still works wonderfully, as this wine ably shows. The smooth, pleasant palate impression is of raspberry, mandarin, and minerals.
$68.50 - 1.5 Liters

One of our favorite Oregon producers is back with a new vintage (2018).
The 2018 Gran Moraine Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir exudes aromas of Choke cherry, sassafras, lavender, milk chocolate, and peppermint. The palate is wound like a spring with red to blue fruit notes on the mid palate, bursting with flavors of pomegranate, shitake mushrooms, black pepper, molasses, and leather. Cleansing acidity and vibrant tannins on the finish.
