93 Wine & Spirits
A Red Mountain cabernet that comes in just shy of super ripeness, this leads with scents of mint and fennel sprigs. Yet there’s plenty of deep berry flavor, and no lack of power in its dark flavors, the wine remaining balanced and supple, on point for roast beef.
92 James Suckling
Ripe boysenberries, cassis and plums with some mountain-herb aromas. Follows through to a palate coated in rich plums and dark berries, building to gently chewy tannins. Drink or hold.
92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a success this year, revealing aromas of ripe plums, cassis, pencil shavings and espresso roast. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, rich and generous, with an ample core of fruit, juicy acids and a flavorful finish. It's a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.

Sleight Of Hand
The Conjurer Red 2017
OUR PRICE $22.99

Mountain Vineyard, this wine is a classic Washington State Bordeaux style blend. It shows tremendous weight and concentration, while holding on to its elegance. The mouth-filling palate and medium-weight, fleshy tannins, are buoyed by food-friendly acid and a long, long finish. This wine has a gorgeous nose dominated by herbal notes from the Cabernet Franc, as well as savory spices, like nutmeg and cinnamon, and a flavor profile of dark fruit, like plum and blackberries. The Conjurer cries out to be paired with your favorite steak, and to be shared with your favorite people (or just sipped in front of a roaring fire--with or without company).

Catena
Malbec 2016
SALE $17.99

Total Wine $19.79*

92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The fresh, floral and expressive 2016 Catena Malbec blends grapes from different parts of Mendoza: Lunlunta, Agrelo, Altamira El Cepillo and Gualtallary. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for an average of 12 months. It's straight and a little austere but has deep flavors. Superb quality for the price and volume.

Robert Eymael-Monchhof
Urzig Wurzgarten
Kabinett Riesling
OUR PRICE $16.99

The history of Monchhof (the ”Monks House or Monks Court”) goes back to 1177. Still in the Eymael family’s possession is a document signed by Pope Alexander III, which shows the Cloister Himmerod (a Cistercian abbey) as having holdings at Ürzig as early as 1177. For over 200 years they have carried on the winemaking tradition of the monks.
91 Robert Parker
The 2015 Ürzig Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett is very clear, spicy and slatey on the nose. Wonderfully delicate and lush on the palate, with clear and exotic fruit but also great finesse and elegance, this is a perfectly balanced and enormously stimulating Kabinett whose finish reveals an exciting salinity and lightness. Analytically sweet for European palates but rather medium-dry for Americans.
