Winemaker Tasting! Jonathan Maltus

Thursday, September 4
Jonathon Malthus joined the Saint Emilion Garagista movement in the mid-nineties, establishing himself on the world wine stage with the iconic luxury bottling Le Dome, a unique blend of 75% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. Garnering rave reviews from wine lovers and critics alike, Malthus decided to turn his considerable talents to California, and bottled his first Napa Valley vintage in 2008. Join us as we taste a cross-section of his portfolio ranging from the accessible to the collectible from both Bordeaux and Napa. Tickets are $29 w/ a $19 credit towards featured wines

Binology 103: The Rhone Valley

Saturday, September 6
The Rhone Valley is a warm region in southern France that produces some truly spectacular wines. We will focus our attention on the different appellations of the Northern and Southern Rhone while tasting a variety of whites and reds, such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cotes-du-Rhone and more!Tickets are $39

Cape Classics

Thursday, September 11
Though this part of the world can claim a vineyard history dating back to 1659, it wasn't until the late '90s that this up-and-coming region was even considered part of the world wine palette. The growth of the past couple of decades is quite astounding, mostly thanks to some of the strictest wine laws known to the world, a true push for quality. From ubiquitous Chenin Blanc to Northern Rhone styled Syrah to the South African birthed grape known as Pinotage, New World variety is a hallmark of the Western Cape. Tickets are $19

Binology 101: The Basics of Wine Tasting

Saturday, September 13
We look at the typical characteristics of popular grape varietals and explain the terminology and techniques of wine tasting and learn how to recognize the subtle and subjective flavors of wine. Tickets are $29.

Purebred Bordeaux

Thursday, September 18
Welcome to the homeland of some of the most famous international grapes on the wine scene: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc just to name a few. This legendary region in southwest France is bisected by the Gironde Estuary, the gravelly soils of the "left bank" responsible for Cab based blends, the clay strewn "right bank" specializing in Merlot based wines. Not to mention rich, sweet Sauternes, the product of the "noble rot" (we'll explain...). Come see what all of the 100 point Wine Advocate scores are about! Tickets are $29

Binology 103: Beaune

Saturday, September 20
During this class we will be exploring the historically rich and terroir driven wine region of Beaune--the southern extent of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. Take a tour through the area where Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reach their peak, discovering famed villages like Mersault, Pommard, and Puligny-Montrachet. Tickets are $39

Autumn Delights

Thursday, September 25
Two words: Sweater Wines! The temperatures have finally begun to drop, the leaves are changing, and all you want is to be embraced by your wine selection. Sonoma Chardonnay wraps you up gently in a flannel blanket while sweet and nutty Vin Santo from Tuscany is like sitting in front of a warm fire. Join us as we enter the most beautiful of the seasons! Tickets are $19

New Arrival

2012 Lenne "LeNez" Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton

$34.99/bottle or $349.90/case of 12

Soft and rich, the 2012 vintage in Oregon's Willamette Valley produced wines with generous fruit profiles and immediate accessibility. Deftly balanced, concentrated flavors of plum, black cherry, anise and mocha are beautifully woven together before pleasant mid-palate grip and a lingering, fine-grained tannic structure round things out.
