Scarborough 'The Works'

This is the probably the best "Works" wine ever bottled by Scarborough Winery, as it consists of more Cabernet Sauvignon than in previous vintages and in a great year like 2012, even the "Press" wine—which typically is wine that might not be as good that the "Free-run" (wine that comes directly out of fermentation without pressing it). So in good vintages, like 2012, this wine is very difficult to beat, especially for the price. This wine will go fast, so make sure you get some! Only 212 cases produced. $28.00

Machete by Orin Swift

"In the glass, deep, dark bluish-red hues can be seen with a band of ruby on the rim. Uplifted aromatics of ripe blackberries, mulled raspberries, acacia flowers, toasty oak, and herbal notes hit the nose in a pronounced way. Offering up robust flavors during the approach, the mid palate is exposed to an unadulterated array of crushed berries, dark chocolate, black fruits, and a tinge of creamy espresso. Finishing with principle, the glossy tannins are in alignment for immediate enjoyment or some time in the cellar too."

Domaine de Majas Syrah

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

This Syrah offers black fruit, with black pepper notes, spicy hints and liqueur, and red fruit flavors. The nose produces scents of balsamic and liquorice notes. It displays a very pleasant freshness and balanced, and subtlety.

On the palate it has a good mouthfeel, light, medium-bodied, well-defined and with bright acidity. A slight chocolate bitterness which ends up being dominated its fruitiness (blackcurrants), the smoothness of its tannins and its great persistence. A very interesting Syrah. A rustic, yet elegant wine.

Food Pairing: Lamb, Beef, Hard Cheeses. $19.99

Domaine de Majas Rouge

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

The Rouge from Domaine Majas is a blend of old vine Carignage and Grenache. It displays a brilliant ruby colour with an explosive nose of blackberries and cherries. On the palate, this wine has intense black fruit concentration, astonishing minerality, and tannins that just melt in your mouth. Delicious and enjoyable

Try it alongside lamb, steak, mac and cheese, mushrooms, and roasted vegetables. $21.00

Ex Umbris Syrah

We love everyting from Washington State vintner Owen Roe and the Ex Umbris Syrah is no exception! The label may be non-descript, but the wine is anything but.

"The 2012 Ex Umbris is a great expression of the bold fruit flavors from that year. Bursting with aromas of red plum, blueberry and pink peppercorn. The palate is filled with refreshing flavors of fresh summer blackberries, currant, and dark chocolate with noticibly structured acidity and silky tannins." $28.00

Domaine Saint-Lannes Cotes de Gascogne

"Domaine de Saint-Lannes spreads across the sprawling slopes so typical of the region. The surface under vine is 49 hectares with a clay and limestone soil which is an ideal site for the white grape varieties grown there. The south facing slopes ensure early ripening as well as perfect drainage. The continental climate, hot summers and cold winters, is beneficial for the healthy development of the vegetative cycle of the vines. The average age of the vines is 27 years.

Pale yellow with silvery glints and a youthful rim. Vibrant aromas of lively citrus and exotic fruit on the nose give way to a fresh, nicely balanced palate and long finish that is clean and aromatic."

This Cotes de Gascogne makes for a refreshing aperitif, or pairs well with salads, goat's cheese, charcuterie, fois gras, and delicate white fish.
