Erath Oregon Rosé of Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Erath wines are an expression of the land that the winery has cultivated for more than 40 years, longer than any other winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon. The red, iron-rich Jory soils, combined with gentle breezes and warming sunshine of a marine climate, have bestowed upon Dundee a terroir of note. It has given rise to the handcrafting phenomenon, and the art of Pinot.

Tasting notes: The epitome of freshness, this peppy rosé titillates the senses with aromas of nectarine, rose petal and ripe, juicy Casaba melon. Buoyant acidity provides long-lasting flavors of apricot, tangelo and Fuji apple.

It can happen in jeans and a tee shirt or in an evening dress. What matters is that it can happen at all. After all, Rodney Strong Rosé of Pinot Noir is your inspired pleasure for life’s everyday moments.

Rosé of Pinot Noir is beautifully colored, with fresh, vibrant aromas and flavors of strawberry, white peach and jasmine. Brilliant and bright with fresh acidity and a wonderful lasting juicy finish. Enjoy this Rosé of Pinot Noir with goat cheese, fresh seafood dishes and summer salads.

Le Fervent Syrah

The term “fervent” is defined as “having intensity of spirit, feeling and enthusiasm,” an apt description of winemaker Michel Gassier’s passion for Syrah. Le Fervent is produced in Costières de Nîmes, the southern-most appellation of the Rhône Valley nestled on the shore of the Mediterranean, and is sourced from some of the coolest vineyard sites of the Southern Rhône, thanks to the strong maritime influence. This wine exhibits the freshness, elegance and mineraility that are often characteristic of Syrahs from the Northern Rhône, the birthplace of this most noble varietal.

Blend: 91% Syrah, 6% Grenache, 2% Mourvèdre, 3% Viognier (co-fermented with Syrah)

Winemaker's Notes: Almost black with reddish hues. The nose is both complex and intense, of black plum, china ink, blood orange and hints of pencil lead. A very fresh and vibrant wine with flavors of blueberry, boysenberry liquor and garrigue, underlined by hints of toast and cocoa. It is framed by refined tannins and good acidity.

Weissburgunder Heidi Schrock

"This is closer to the woodsy breadth of her Grauburgunders than to the sometimes-lean stony critter it’s been before. It’s especially chalky and scallop-y, markedly generous and leesy and not at all cerebral. More overt, more explicit. Knowing Heidi, it just came out this way this year." – Terry Theise

Born inside their nano brewery in Boston, Samuel Adams New England IPA is a medium-bodied, hazy brew featuring a big punch of citrus juiciness.
