Requiem Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

88 Points, WE. Requiem is a blend of grapes from six sites across the Columbia Valley.Each component is vinified separately and then undergoes a series of blending trials, looking for purity of fruit, complexity and outstanding quality that consistantly overperforms.

Paetra Pinot Blanc 2019

Our 2019 Pinot Blanc was hand harvested from old-vines grown at 750 ft above sea-level. It was fermented in 100% neutral oak barrels. The resulting wine is very pure and mineral with hints of pear, exotic fruit and bright acidity.

Ricosoli Toscana 2016

Ruby red color with delicate aromas of red berries and small red fruits followed by a soft mouthfeel with nice acidity giving way to a well-balanced and pleasant finish.

J Mourat Collection Blanc 2018

Light gold in color, the Blanc Collection displays aromas of green orchard fruits, lanolin and white flowers. This medium-bodied wine has a sharp, broad acidity that delivers incredible freshness and helps to deliver a long, concentrated finish.

Tombacco Biferno Rosso Riserva 2014

90 Points, DWW. The brilliance of the garnet reflections on an intense ruby red, the Biferno is a wine with a full and aromatic taste. Olfactory nuances ranging from ethereal vanilla to sharp notes of spices and cinnamon. In the mouth it is rich, velvety and harmonious, perfect with meat dishes.

Domaine De Pallus Messanges Rose 2019

100% Cabernet Franc. Salmon pink; Full palate with fresh strawberry and citrus notes. Direct press, 3 months in stainless steel. Winemaker Bertrand's "Messanges" line is his younger, fresher expression of his vineyards.

Santa Julia Malbec Reserva 2018

91 Points, JS. Dark violet with blue hues. Nose of ripe red and black fruits such as cherries, plums, and blackberries. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and snuff. Medium-bodied flavor, with soft tannins and balanced acidity with a fruity and spicy finish.

Ameal Loureiro 2019

With ripe citrus skin, lemon blossom, and green grass on the nose, this wine is like standing in a lemon grove on a warm afternoon. The palate is fresh and crisp, but there’s a mineral density present that gives serious structure to this otherwise fun-loving wine.

Chateau L'orangerie Bordeaux Rogue 2018

Moderately dense garnet with purple. Very appealing, clean and youthful aroma of healthy, mature dark cherry and damson plum with faint spice notes. The wine is round, supple and medium bodied and imparts a soft final impression with the barest touch of tannin.

Scarpetta Pinot Grigio 2018

This wine showcases some of the best sites in Friuli-Venezia Giulia for this aromatic varietal. Light straw color with just a hint of salmon. Aromas of both stone fruits and melon. Melon and stone fruits with minerals and medium body. Pinot Grigio has such a great range.

About Us

We believe everybody deserves to be happy. Our job is rather simple; it is to make our customers’ days just a little better. Other than our families, fine wine is the single most important thing to us. This passion is what drives us to have a diverse, interesting, and deep selection.

Wine Philosophy

Our wine department is near and dear to our hearts. Our staff is wildly passionate about fine wine, wine regions, and the wine business. We believe in representing interesting, small, family owned wineries. We believe in authentic and natural wines. While we are going to carry the wines we find exciting, we also are dedicated to stocking wineries and vintages that receive the current critical acclaim, i.e. the wines that matter today. We are going to find the small properties that are under the radar as well as the big releases from California, France, and Italy.

To the best of our abilities, the fine wines represented on our website are what we actually carry. We do not believe in selling “ghost inventory.” We want to have the wines, in stock, which we say we do. It just makes too much sense to do otherwise.

Our staff of wine specialists has strong opinions as we have all developed our passion and palates with a combined 100 plus years in the wine business. We know drinking and appreciating wines is a very personal experience which is why the staff may not always agree on a particular wine. Our commitment to trusting each other's palates has allowed us to develop our deep and intriguing inventory. Being different and liking different wines is an important aspect to the wine business. It is what allows us to offer so many different wines and styles. We are not here to tell you what to like or what to drink. We are here to help customers by having what they want. We are here to help them develop interests in new wine regions. We are here to educate.

One of the trickiest aspects of running our wine business is how to handle professional press and ‘points’. For years, our wine specialists have resisted the urge to sell based on points and to sell based on a personal understanding of our customer’s palates and the wines we stock. Today, our wine room typically does not use points and/or winery marketing materials. On occasion will do use professional scores, but if and only if, the written review is included. The words are what really matter. A simple ‘points score’ does not describe the style nor the taste. We believe that is what matters. We do use points on our website because, in this day and age, customers expect to see them when possible. Professional reviews have become an important component of the wine buying decision. We respect that. When at all possible, we will provide the tasting notes associated with the review. Costumers expect us to know the fine wines we carry and, at times, that includes professional critique.

Malt Philosophy

Our philosophy for our single malt department is simple: find and offer the best of what is available. We stock a large selection (300+ malts) of everyday, collectable, and high desirable single malts and bourbons. We search out the new releases and always strive to offer highly competitive pricing.
