Wine Features


Indian Wells, Chateau St. Michelle

Columbia Valley, Washington, 2006

This is a ripe, tropical style of Riesling, which comes

from the warm Wahluke Slope region of eastern Washington.

The 2006 Indian Wells Riesling exhibits fruit-driven aromas

of juicy pineapple and mango. The wine is rich and unctuous,

while maintaining a fresh, elegant style

that is typical of Washington state Riesling.

$8.00 / glass

$32.00 / bottle

Bloodstone, Gemtree Winery, 2003

McLaren Vale, Australia

Only 350 cases produced.

The 2003 Tempranillo yielded less than 1 ton of fruit per acre. Harvesting took place early in March (this is fall – down under) as the balance of tannin, acid, and flavor came on quickly due to the dry winter and hot summer. The 2003 Bloodstone has abundant fruit character yet a tannin structure that aged the fruit gracefully.

$7.50 / glass

$30.00 / bottle

Hunt, 2003

South Austalia, 2003

A nice and simple Aussie shiraz. Still maintaining its freshness and crisp acidity. Starting to evolve a nose with some old-world funk, barnyard, and smoke.

Great pairing with duck, beef filet, or pork loin.

$6.00 / glass

$24.00 / bottle
