Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is a very dry wine that is fruit-forward and very refreshing.

Rombauer Sauv. Blanc, Napa – Fresh-squeezed grapefruit & lime flavors with zesty acidity ending clean and bright

Rosé

A happy medium between bold, tannic reds and light-whites, Rosé goes well with all types of foods. It is a great wine for a barbecue as well as sitting on the beach.

Möet & Chandon Rosé Imperial – Bright fruitiness embodying a fruity and daring character with a seductive palate

Deligeroy Cremant Rosé, Loire – Luscious and vibrant with layered flavors of candied berries, hazelnuts and honey

Champagne

Champagne has a crisp versatility and is a great celebratory wine. The sweetness of each bottle varies and can be found on the label.

Moët & Chandon Champagne – Lightly creamy with apricot, citrus, and black raspberry flavors and a well-cut finish

Dom Perignon Champagne – Poached apple, honey and sun-dried black cherry flavors with a rich minerally finish

Veuve Clicquot Champagne – Fresh and fragrant fruit as well as richness, a soft, creamy texture and bright acidity

Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne – Ripe pears, apricots, dried flowers and spices leading to a fresh, moderate finish

Chardonnay

While creating the most popular white wine in the world, the Chardonnay grapes take on the taste of the terrain they were grown in. No bottles grown in separate regions will taste the same. Apple, pear and citrus flavors; stone fruit flavors; or tropical flavors can all be found in Chardonnay depending on where the grapes were grown.

Cakebread Chardonnay, Napa – Concentrated pear, spiced apple and melon flavors that culminate in a long finish

Nickel & Nickel Chardonnay, Napa – Creamy mouth-feel and balanced acidity with peach, apple, and tropical fruit flavors

Kistler Chardonnay, Sonoma – Hazelnut aromas with subtle notes of stone and Meyer lemon

Jordan Chardonnay, Russian River – Harmoniously balanced with stone fruit flavors, vibrant acidity and a succulent finish

Pinot Noir

A crowd pleaser for any occasion, Pinot Noir is fruit-forward and very easy on the pallet. It goes great with food but is equally as great alone.

Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette – Full bodied with lots of red fruit

En Route Pinot Noir, Russian River – Rich and juicy mid-palate with firm, yet fine-grained tannins

Belle Glos Pinot Noir, Las Alturas – Supple and layered with exotic spices, ripe plum and black cherry flavors

Left Coast Cellars “Cali’s Cuvee” Pinot Noir, Willamette – Intense raspberry and black cherry flavors

Lange Pinot Noir, Willamette – Dark berries, dried flowers, slight earthiness and well-integrated tannins
