Blended Nebbiolo, Barbera and Sangiovese make this one of our most unique and delicious reds.  If you are avid about red wine…this one is a must try.  This wine manages to be rich and flavorful…but still light bodied enough to crave glass after glass.  Full of cherry and deep summer blueberry this will quickly become a favorite in your cellar.  A rich mushroom risotto with fresh herbs and sharp parmesan are the perfect plate to go with this wine.

2016 Forte Rosso

$65.00

“Forte Rosso” means Bold Red in Italian, and we’ve certainly succeeded with this cofermented blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Malbec.  Our “Bold Red” takes the best of both of these varietals and makes something wonderfully “Mellisoni”.  A wonderful combination of the dark cherry of our Cabernet blended with the flavorful plum and blackberry or our Malbec.  We would pair this with a grilled flat iron steak, sumac butter roasted potatoes and fresh thyme.

wine2Malbec

2016 Malbec

Also an original Bordeaux grape, but was made famous by wines made in Argentina and Chile. Here in Washington the grapes produce deliciously dark and fruity wines

This drinkable red is a favorite of our wine club.  Full of plum and blackberry this wine also has the faintest hints of cocoa.  This wine is a great “drinkable” red…and has a lovely finish.  This is the one to pair with Umami focused foods.  Tomatoes, parmesan cheese…of course.  Your favorite sushi roll?  ABSOLUTELY.

Our full bodied “cab” is rich and high in tannin.  Black current and plum resonate with this wine with just a hint of dark chocolate.  This wine deserves your best efforts in the kitchen…give it the attention it deserves.  Espresso braised short rib with roasted mushrooms…well ok…that would work.

Our lovely dark Syrah…boysenberry, hints of pepper and a wonderful finish make this a must have in any wine cellar.

2016 Viognier

$50.00

The best food and wine always has a story… our 2016 Viognier is no exception.  There are slight hints of vanilla and citrus…but the amazing thing about this wine is the gorgeous honey hue.  If the perfect summer afternoon could be bottled…it would be this.  We crave salted caramel with this wine all day long.
