Vino Wine Shop

To show how guilty I feel about leaving you hanging this Friday, I’m more than making it up to you with a killer FREE weekend wine tasting. Chateauneuf du Pape is always appropriate, just so you, never more so than when it is from one of my favorite producers from a stellar Rhone vintage. Plus the price has just been knocked back by their PDX importer,so the getting is even better. Absolutely make plans to stop by Saturday between 11-6 or Sunday 12-5 to taste this world class red, and as added incentive the supporting cast of wines includes two other fabulous reds and a last grab at my favorite rosé of the year! Who needs Friday when you can taste these at your leisure this weekend…


-2009 PAUL AUTARD Chateauneuf du Pape $37.95…
Usually $44 a bottle! “Ripe and nicely focused, with a delicious beam of cassis and linzer torte flavors liberally laced with sweet, toasty spice and red licorice notes. The finish is sleek. Drink now through 2022. 91 points.”- Wine Spectator


-2012 CORVIDAE WINE CO. Syrah “Lenore” $13.95…
a recent price drop and another chance to find out why winemaker David O’Reilly and Columbia Valley syrah are two things that go perfectly together!


-2011 NAPOLINI Rosso dei Monti $11.95…
a remarkable Umbrian blend that totally over-delivers at this price!


-2013 L’HERMAS Languedoc Rosé “St-Guilhem-le-Desert” $16.95…
Hands down my favorite pink of 2014! Our importer just got their last 30 cases of this übver-delicious pink, and seasonal change be d*mned, this pink has the body, flavor, and intensity to drink well year round!
