Folie a Deux Zinfandel

The Dry Creek Valley’s warm summer days—tempered by morning fog from the Pacific Ocean—and its well-drained, stony soils are made-to-order for Zinfandel. Aging this Zinfandel in a combination of French and American oak barrels enhances its decadent flavors and plush texture.

A medium-bodied Zin with blackberry jam aromas, followed by notes of boysenberry, mocha and cedar, layered over a long and firm finish.

Two Vintners Lola Red
Washington State

Always a blend of Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon this remains one of Two Vintners most popular wines. Big, bold and approachable, Lola will entice you with a balance of dark red fruits & meatiness all held together by a firm tannic streak.

93pts – Wine Advocate, Editor’s Choice –"This wine is 70% Syrah and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, with fruit coming from Yellow Jacket, Stoney Vine and Pepper Bridge vineyards. Aromas of herb, ember, black cherry, earth, smoked meat and plum are followed by palate-coating, rich fruit and savory flavors, with enough tannic structure to benefit from some time in the cellar."

Two Vintners Syrah
Washington State

Columbia Valley Syrah is the muse that started the whole operation that is Two Vintners. One of the original three wines, the Columbia Valley Syrah is the motor that drives the winery. A blend of amazing vineyards each with their own unique qualities that swirl together into an seamless wine that displays Washington Syrah at its finest. Aged in a mixture of neutral French oak barrels and 500 liter puncheons.

93 points Wine Enthusiast - "This is a true pan-Washington Syrah, with fruit coming from Discovery, Olsen, Stone Tree, Pepper Bridge, Dineen, Stoney Vine, Yellow Jacket and Boushey vineyards—all top sites rarely seen in a bottle at this price. Scents of smoke, blue and black fruit, crushed flowers, sagebrush and herb leap out of the glass, demonstrating a lot of aromatic complexity. The palate shows intensity, purity and layering."

Tower 15 The Swell
Paso Robles, California

Dark, ruby red in color, this wine is brimming with dark chocolate, ripe plums and black cherries with hints of fresh rosemary, and sweet oak on the nose. On the palate, big rich tannins upfront provide a lush mouthfeel. Flavors of blackberry, cranberries and hints of leather abound throughout the long finish.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Petit Verdot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec from Paso Robles, CA.

Tower 15 The Jetty
Paso Robles, California

Light strawberry in color, but don’t let the light bodied color fool you. A wine mostly dominated by Grenache with background players of Mourvedre and Syrah, there is a lot going on in this Rhone style blend. The nose is filled with sweet aromas of cinnamon, maple syrup, and raspberries, strung together with fresh cut flowers, white and cayenne peppers. Tight and focused the entire way through, the acid and tannins streak together to bring to life the flavors of raspberries, star anise, coriander, lavender honey and fresh vanilla with notes of roasted meats and iron.

The Schmitt and Oasis Vineyards (Yakima Valley) provide nice tropical fruit while Evergreen Vineyard (latitude 47 on the Columbia River) contributes crisp acidity and minerality.

Tasting Notes: This beautifully expressive Chardonnay offers an enticing mix of apple, nutmeg, and crème brulee with old world characters of flint and slate. The rich structure of this wine is elegantly balanced with texture and minerality, adding complexity on the lingering finish.

The whole room watches, bated breath, as the Maestro, wiping phenol, guaiacol, and isovaleric acid off his brow, raises the baton and begins… 7.4% ABV

Clear Creek Apple Brandy Barrel Aged

Aged for a minimum of 2 years in French Limousin oak, Clear Creek Apple Brandy is complex enough to be enjoyed neat in a snifter, but also wonderful in any cocktail calling for brandy, applejack or Calvados.

The quintessential expression of a classic, traditional London Dry Gin. Bold, complex and aromatic – smooth enough for a Martini, yet rich and balanced, perfect for a G&T.

Gin made the way it used to be, and the way it should be.

London Dry Gin was born out of a desire to see gin production return to the city where it earned its name. With a nod to traditional hand crafted production, this gin combines traditional copper pot distillation with a recipe that wouldn't look unfamiliar to an eighteenth century Master Distiller.

Yellowstone Select Bourbon
