Seriously tasty Beaujolais that is best served slightly chilled. Mouth watering acidity with notes of freshly picked flowers, black cherry and wild herbs. A perfect Pinot Noir alternative!

The newest joint venture release between Rogue Brewing and the infamous Portland based Voodoo Donuts! Sounds odd, taste's amazing. Uses all natural flavouring (apparently even the pretzel...). I was a little hesitant at first, but after we cracked a bottle my fears were quashed. Notes of fresh raspberry mix with dark chocolate and a faint hint of pretzel. Not too heavy, not too light. Delicious stuff!

One of my favourite new finds from the Napa Valley. Textbook Napa Cabernet with a luscious texture and bold flavours of cassis, plum and vanilla. Amazing stuff, and although it's not inexpensive could stand up against bottles twice its price from Napa. Highly recommended for fans of the classics such as Joseph Phelps or Shafer who are looking to try something new

Thrilled to have some new Sherry at the shop. Because this is a Manzanilla style sherry it is dry and very light in body (but not flavor!). Basically, the climate of this little town in Jerez is perfect for the production of delicate and nuanced sherries. It has notes of lemon, almond, fennel, pear drop, yeast and bees wax. The palate is refreshing - pair with a charcuterie board - so much salty HAM!

Let's talk weird wine! This is a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Ribolla from northern Italy. Unlike most whites, it is aged on the skins giving it both a deeper color and tannin. It is then kept in old oak barrels for over three years followed by at least a year in the bottle. Speaking of the bottle, it has a really tiny cork to prevent any additional oxygen from getting in meaning this wine will age. Crisp but grippy. Notes of seaweed, papaya, burnt lemon, marmalade, pine nuts.

Wicked little wine from the Jura in France. It's a pale gold in the glass. The nose is reminiscent of apple butter, lilac and honey. The palate has well placed acidity and a creaminess. Additionally, the palate shows signs of riper fruit like peach. Great value and would go well with almost any dinner.

Easy alternative to Pinot Noir. Bright and fresh with lots of brambly fruit and floral notes. Light in body but not in flavors - even does well slightly chilled. Serve with roast chicken and root veggies or even delicately spiced foods.

So huge! Probably the most luxurious Vacqueyras I've ever tasted. Super rich and fruity on the palate. Lots of dark berry fruit, stewed plums and dates on the nose with a meaty quality bringing up the rear. Violets and bacon fat. Drink now or age for the next ten years!

Ever heard of the Pfalz before? That's alright, you're not the only one. It's one of Germany's many unsung heroes of Riesling. Because of it's relative lack of fame it offers great value and an opportunity to support the underdogs. It is light and fresh with just a kiss of sweetness - it is not sugary by any stretch of the imagination. Think peach and apricot with a honey lemon undertone. Super zesty on the palate - and ideal pairing for almost anything.

Abstract tasting notes: Sepia toned, like an old faded polaroid - yet still glossy in the light. Apple butter sitting on a freshly sanded table. Memories of sponge taffy yet sugarless. Mixed nuts toasting in an old wood burning oven. A pretty lady forgot her knit sweater at your house - wool and glimpses of day old spiced perfume and smiles. Fells like being embraced compassionately from the inside.
