Blackbird Arise Red 2018
Harvested, vinified, and aged with an identical commitment to quality as our principal wines, this classic Napa blend comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon expresses luscious flavors that can only come from exceptional fruit.
“Beautiful aromas of cherry, black currant, cedar cigar box, iris, and coffee. Boysenberry pie, fig, and toffee awaken the palate. Supple tannins give buoyancy, leading to a lingering finish of plum, cherry and toasted almond.”
Winemaker, Aaron Pott

Molly Dooker “The Boxer” Shiraz 2017$38.00
Complex and expressive, the 2017 Boxer exudes vivacity while maintaining great length. Bright maraschino cherry, fresh plum, rich dark chocolate and liquorice max out the flavour spectrum. The tannins are fine, the fruit is soft and the flavors tickle the taste buds. Consistently impressive and seriously good, this wine is not short of character. Bold, powerful, full body texture. Intense fruity flavors of ripe blackberry, plum, elderberry and dark bitter chocolate with intermittent tastes of clove. Fresh acidity, firm well integrated tannins and an explosive fruity finish. WOW, WOW a Shiraz that gives a whole new meaning to the term BIG and POWERFUL wine. The bold flavors are a perfect complement for the salt in stir fry soy sauce. Clearly not California sweet and clearly not from the Rhone Valley, but there was lots of BRIGHT sun on these Australian grapes and it’s POTENT fruit and IMPETUOUS taste really identifies its origin…there is nothing else quite like it!!! A vibrant Australian Shiraz that is a fantastic bargain!

Owen Roe Ex Umbris 2019$29.00
The Owen Roe Ex Umbris was introduced as a one-time bottling in 2002 after a wild fire struck the vineyard’s surrounding hillsides. The residual ash and smoke resonated in the Syrah grapes, creating a very memorable wine. Year after year, they are asked to develop a Syrah to keep the story of this wine alive! Now, more than 10 vintages later, we hope you will enjoy this bold Syrah comprised from several exceptional vineyards in the Columbia and Yakima Valleys. The Ex Umbris 2019 is a great expression of the bold fruit flavors from that year. Bursting with aromas of red plum, blueberry and pink peppercorn. The palate is filled with refreshing flavors of fresh summer blackberries, currant, and dark chocolate with noticeably structured acidity and silky tannins.
