Clark: Malene Central Coast Rosé 2016
Wine Enthusiast: Rated 91 and Editors Choice. There's a chalky power to the nose of this lightly hued wine, its baking soda aromas melding with rose petal, lime peel and watermelon scents. There's tremendous tension to the palate, where bubblegum and ambrosia melon flavors meet limestone-like minerality. Ripe enough to make it playful, it's bright enough to drink all day.
Henrik: Lioco Russian River Chardonnay 2015
Estero was named after the river-born waterways that shape the Russian River Valley vineyards. It is a blend of three prized sites—all dry-farmed and featuring Old Wente clones. Vintage 2015 saw historically low grape yields and wines with immense concentration. Despite Lioco's restrained house style, the character of the vintage is undeniable: gob smacking deliciousness—the result of scarce and tiny grape clusters. Ripe Eureka lemon, honeycomb, fennel pollen, saffron, and crushed rocks all play a role in this dramatic thriller of a wine. Nippon Airlines serves this wine on all their First Class flights between Tokyo and California's West Coast. Pairs perfectly with eggs benedict, codfish cakes or bottarga pasta.
Chris K: Hess Alomi Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
As we welcome the cooler months and we once again return to our favorite outdoor living spaces, I thought the 2013 Hess “Alomi” Cabernet would be the perfect wine for those evenings where filet mignon or even roasted dove are on the menu. This gem from Napa Valley showcases dark fruit, strong presence of tannins, and a long, tapering finish.
Maggie: Lioco Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015
If you’re looking for a Pinot Noir to WOW, look no further! If you’re looking for a Pinot Noir heavy enough to pair with quail, venison, steak, pork belly, turkey, and ham, look no further! This is an AMAZING Pinot Noir to have in your arsenal this festive season of table gatherings, trust me – I’m a professional!!
Roberto: Four Graces Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2016
Tasting Panel Rated 92. “Aged in 100% stainless steel, the aromatics are defining: Pineapple and white flowers are charming. On the palate, a rich pear nectar sidles with a lean, crisp mineral tone. The duality of texture and mouthfeel is sensational. The acidity is anxious, marking a line of delineation for grapefruit and wild flowers.”
David: Andrew Will Columbia Valley Washington Cabernet Franc 2015
This medium body wine reveals herbal notes of Italian seasonings, cherry, crushed leaf and red plum on the nose with dark chocolate, cherry, raspberries on the palate. This wine is fresh and youthful and ready to drink. Rated 93 by James Suckling. “This is a real cabernet franc with cherries and fresh herbs. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a crisp finish. Could be from Loire... but Washington.”
Aaron: Chateau de Bellevue Lussac St. Emilion Bordeaux 2012
The days are growing shorter, leaves are starting to change colors, and temperatures are dropping. The smell of fall fills the air and leaves me reaching for a wine that’s autumnal; a red wine that smells of crushed leaves, mushrooms and the change of season. This is a wine to delve into and get to know, either with a rich multi course meal surrounded by friends or on it’s own by a kindling fire. Enjoy!
Devin: Zull (Bone Dry) Riesling Bergen, Austria 2016
As we slide into October and the Fall Classic, I have a “homerun” wine selection for you! Hailing from Bergen in Austria, Zull Riesling is bone dry and offers a complex floral bouquet with notes of ripe stone fruit and herbal spice. This wine’s bracing acidity and crowd pleasing minerality will be sure to make anyone happy. Great with sushi and strong hard cheeses.
logan: Left Coast Cellars, Cali’s Cuvée Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015
The flagship "drink now" Pinot Noir offers a rich, earthy nose of mossy forest floor. Lively tannins reveal luscious blackberries, mingling with plum, a waft of tobacco and a flinty minerality. Named after the family's left-handed daughter, Cali, this cuvee is 100% Dijon, Pommard and Wadenswil clone Pinot Noir. Cali's Cuvee is versatile and exceedingly food friendly. A perfect match for anything from the grill, including salmon, pork chops or chicken. Great with hamburgers. Also pairs beautifully with roast chicken, root vegetables, or perfect on its own.
Josh: The Balvenie 12-Year-Old Double Wood
The Balvenie is simply one of the most approachable Speyside single malt Scotches on the market. Combination of sherry cask and ex bourbon barrels allows the makers of this whisky to create a truly unique flavor profile of subtle vanilla spice layered with dried fruit. This is an amazing Scotch, enjoy neat or on the rocks.
John B: Wild Turkey Straight Rye Whiskey
This is an 81 proof (40.5% alcohol) ode to America's first distilled spirit: rye whisky. When making Wild Turkey Rye, they use a deeper, “alligator” char for extra flavor. Big, broad vanilla and spice notes burst through without changing the bold rye taste. Wild Turkey Rye stands up to any mixer and shines through in cocktails.
Colin: Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt
“We never anticipated canning Reasonably Corrupt as a year-round offering, but our fan base has been loud and clear,” said Andrew Nations, co-founder and president of Great Raft Brewing. “The black lager style is a sleeper hit of a beer – I’ve always loved presenting this beer as an example of complexity of flavor versus the intensity of flavor. And now, Great Raft fans will be able to enjoy Reasonably Corrupt in a can that showcases not only that complex flavor, but also locally inspired artwork.”
Chris M: Wasatch Brewery Double Bock
“If you're going to sin, sin big. With 8% alc/vol and a creamy richness, this brew has developed a serious cult following. Imagine that – a cult following in Utah?!” – Wasatch Brewery

Like a Belgian “Dark Strong Ale”, the beer is rich and robust with an ABV of 9%. “Being a huge fan of Monk and his music has made working on this project something special”, said Doug Moody, North Coast’s Senior Vice-President and National Sales Manager. “We’re honored to be associated with a world class organization like the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz and feel that this terrific beer will represent its namesake well.”
