The wine is serious and focused with a bright ruby hue. The nose is youthful and bright and the palate retains a lightness indicative of its cool climate origins. It is extremely drinkable with firm tannins around a core of earthy black currants, violets, and a slight exotic hint of Neroli oil. If you think you know Tannat, think again. Come give it a try because it’s not your momma’s Uruguayan Tannat!

Vouette & Sorbee 'Blanc d'Argile' Brut Nature NV
Mainly from a small parcel of Chardonnay in Briaunes supplemented with scattered plantings of Chardonnay in Bertrand’s other lieux-dits. Mineral, salty and long – basically a Grand Cru Chablis with bubbles. Zero dosage and a house that practices biodynamic farming makes this a great option for serious bubble drinkers.
Dosnon Champagne 'Recolte Brute' NV
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
A predominantly Pinot Noir blend from Davy Dosnon’s vinyards just North of Chablis. This is a full bodied Champagne that is fermented and aged in used Puligny-Montrachet barrels that add a depth that most Champagnes rarely achieve. The power of this wine is complemented by ripe red fruits to make for an excellent wine to pair with food.

Napa Valley, California
Made by Steve Matthiasson, this wine is 100% barrel fermented and aged sur lie creating a fully ripe and textured, yet bright, zesty and supremely age-worthy blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon from two carefully-chosen vineyards in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District and Yountville.
2014 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France
“The 2014 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc fulfils its potential that it showed in barrel. It has a well-defined and mineral-driven bouquet with light granitic aromas, a touch of sunflower seed and citrus peel. The palate is very well balanced with beautiful citrus fruit laced with nectarine, white peach and apricot. It feels very harmonious in the mouth, long and persistent, the aftertaste delivering a dash of spice that will put a smile on your face and leave you reaching for another sip of this excellent Pessac-Léognan Blanc.”-Neal Martin-robertparker.com
2017 Domaine Thierry Mortet
Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, France
The 2017 has scents of blackberries, red fruits, and just a touch of liquorice. A little bit of spice rounds out this beautiful offering from Domaine Thierry Mortet.
2018 Archery Summit
Dundee Hills, Oregon
Aromatically, the wine is boisterous and full of harmony, drawing on every fetching fragrance from the volcanic Red Hills. Equal parts rhubarb, clove, graham cracker, bay leaf, rose water, and carnation sync to provide a layered nose. On the palate, the wine shows fine, cocoa-like tannins with deep, marinated black currant flavors and a savory, dramatic finish. Flexing robust flavor while still offering restraint, this wine is a telling glimpse of a remarkable 2018 vintage.
Didier Meuzard Ratifia de Bourgogne
Pinot Noir, Gamay, Fine de Bourgogne
Ratafia de Bourgogne, France
This dessert wine from Didier Meuzard has an earthiness that seems to elude most dessert wines, and is complemented with a balanced sweetness. Didier recommends drinking it with a slight chill. While it goes well with dessert, he encourages it to be an everyday drinking wine as well.
2016 Bergstrom “Cumberland Reserve”
Williamette Valley, Oregon
Cranberry and raspberry hold down the center of this blend, which serves as the entry point to the winery’s extensive single vineyard portfolio. Citrus and herb flavors are well integrated, with just a hint of stem in the finishing tannins.
2016 Clos Saint Jean Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Vielles Vignes
Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Mouvedre, Vaccarese
A Grenache dominated blend released solely for the U.S. market, that is an excellent follow up to the 2015 vintage. The nose offers up notes of black cherry and smoke, and then the palate is a full bodied balance of spice and fruit.
2010 Pra Amarone
Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Oseleta
Valpolicella, Verona, Italy
On the nose this Amarone offers up a bouquet of different fruit ranging from plums to cherry. A full bodied wine that has ample tannins for long term aging, but jammy enough to be enjoyed today.
2015 Brooks Extended Tirage
Willamette Valley, Oregon
This dry sparkling riesling is sophisticated and star bright with generous acidity and a lively mousse that yield intensity and zip! Due to weather conditions in 2015, the grapes at harvest were extraordinary in quantity and quality, offering ripeness, balance, and expressive flavors. Meyer lemon, wet gravel, and a little bit of brioche, this is a great alternative to Champagne when you’re feeling like something a little different.
2017 Domaine A.F. Gros
Moulin-a-Vent, Beaujolais, France
AF Gros produces some of our favorite wines here at the shop, and this Beaujolais is no exception. Gamay is a grape with a gentle tannin, bright acidity and red berry floral bouquet. This version is treated with all due respect and made like traditional red burgundy and aged in large oak foudres for one year. Moulin-a-Vent is the Beaujolais Cru that is the most Pinot of all – it’s an exceptional terroir with great personality: elegant fruit, finesse, structure, and depth.
NV Carpene Molvalti Rose MAGNUM
Pinot Nero, Raboso
From a blend of two grape varieties cultivated in this region – Pinot Nero and the indigenous Raboso which, as early as in 1881, Antonio Carpenè indicated as an important and indeed aristocratic cultivar of the Treviso area – comes Carpené’s new cuvee, Rosé Carpenè Brut. Deep pink with hints of crimson, the wine has a perfumed floral bouquet, with elegant yet intense notes of wild berries and Morello cherries. It is full, tangy with rounded fruit on the palate.
2013 Arrow & Branch Red Blend
Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
With a warm dry spring, consistent summer temperatures and cool sunny weather through out October it was a near perfect growing season in 2013. The 2013 Red Wine is a true Cabernet Franc based blend. This perfumed wine invites with warm spices and lavender. It is fruit focused with ripe fleshy dark cherry, hints of liquor and blueberry. The French oak spices are laced throughout the wine as integrated accent that add layers and allow the fruit to shine. This age worthy wine wraps around the center of the palate and makes a grand exit to a fresh finish
2017 Domaine Perrot-Minot Morey-Saint-Denis “En La Rue De Vergy”
An exuberantly fresh nose combines notes of various red berries, earth and soft floral nuances. There is both energy and refinement to the overtly mineral-inflected flavors thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins shaping the refreshing finish that is wrapped around a core of bright acidity.
2017 Domaine Bernard Moreau et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet
It’s impossible to discuss Chassagne-Montrachet without mentioning the name Bernard Moreau. Year to year, this celebrated producer vinifies and bottles some of the purest, most thought-provoking wines of the appellation. The 2017 vintage is very strong for this excellent village wine, with the nose delivering an elegant and very floral constellation of apple, pear, a pungent note of lemon blossoms, a fine base of chalky soil tones, citrus zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, long and seamlessly balanced, with bright acids, excellent focus and grip, lovely nascent complexity and a long, vibrant and classy finish.
2017 Domaine A.F. Gros Vosne-Romanee "Aux Reas"
This is the village for the most die-hard Burgundy fanatics. Vosne-Romanée has for many hundreds of years been the source of the most sought-after Pinot Noir in Burgundy. Anne Gros, the only daughter of François Gros, has established a solid character and reputation in the wine world after taking over her father’s domaine in 1988. As a woman winegrower, Anne knew how to prove herself and convince all who doubted of her ability to manage a domaine. She showed that she had not only the shoulders but the head to make her family heritage one of the greatest domaines of Burgundy. She’s one of our favorites here at Perrine’s!
2014 Lange "Freedom Hill"
Willamette Valley, Oregon
This single vineyard Pinot Noir shows a nose of brambly earth, pomegranate, huckleberry and cigar box spice. A hint of tobacco precedes round, velvety palate showing blueberry compote, candied cherry, vanilla and licorice – all balanced by fine tannins, elegant acidity and a finish that lingers. Still tasting quite young, this potent Pinot brings a dark streak of smoke and a splash of citrus to its core black-fruit flavors. Drink now or give it a few years!
2017 Cruse Wine Co. "Alder Springs"
2011 Montevetrano, Colli di Salerno
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Aglianico
This wine brings together Bordeaux’s two main varietals and one of Italy’s best, aglianico. Aglianico creates a full bodied, high acid, high tannin, and medium-plus alcohol. This Campanian blend is deep ruby-red in color with aromas of blackberries and spices, licorice, tobacco, earth, and leather. On the palate, Montevetrano is full-bodied, yet elegant with fine-grained tannins and a rich, silky texture. Often considered the quintessential “super Campania” wine, Montevetrano is one of the most sought-after wines from Italy.
2009 Leclapart L'Apotre
Fourth generation grower and winemaker David Léclapart farms three hectares in the Premier Cru village of Trépail within the Motagne de Reims, northeast of Ambonnay and Bouzy. He defines his four principles that form the cornerstones of his work as a winemaker as Purity, Energy, Pleasure, Ecology. In accordance with these, he chose to apply a biodynamic approach to his work in his vineyards. He believes this philosophy’s basis in the utmost respect for the four creative forces (water, earth, wind, and fire) is in perfect accordance with his four principles. He completely abandoned the use of fertilizers, herbicides, and chemical pesticides. Similarly, his practices in the cellar and oak treatments are in line with the same philosophy that is intent on transmitting the inherent qualities of the wines.
A beautifully structured champagne that’s crisp and complex, with an earthy palate.
2011 Champagne Fleury "Sonate"
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Symbol and emblem of the Maison Fleury, the 2011 Sonate vintage has been vinified without suffering to preserve fine aromas of intense white fruits from the Chardonnay that composes it and notes of small berries subtly spiced. It comes from the very beautiful plots of Courteron and vines already nearly 40 years old. Vinification in vats (55%) and half in oak barrels (45%). Malolactic fermentation is carried out, bringing roundness and complex aromas to the tasting. With less than 1g/l in dosage, the finish is light, precise, authentic and long.
2014 Bruno Giacosa, "Falletto" Barolo
The knowledge, passion and wisdom that Bruno Giacosa brings to his work as producer of fine wines is the fruit of the dedication of three generations of wine makers. The family interest in vine cultivation began during the constant search for the best vineyards from which to buy the grapes necessary for wine making. The next step, naturally, was to acquire some of the same vineyards for the family business – and the one after that, to specialize in the Nebbiolo grape and the grand wines made from it. All aged in grand oak barrels, this Barolo has well-definable characteristics, elegant with velvety tannins.
2016 Chateau de la Maltroye
Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy, France
“Bright” is the word to describe both the color and nose of this Pinot Noir, with intense strawberry, raspberry and cherry candy aromas, with hints of violets and sweet spice. This is classic Cotes de Beaune Burgundy–the palate is crisp and delicate, with red cherry and cranberry fruit, cherry Now n’ Later candy, lavender and a gently earthy finish backed with bracing acidity. Like all good Burgundies, this wine will pair beautifully with a wide range of lighter dishes, especially grilled chicken and pork.
2016 Benedicte Et Stephane Tissot
Arbois, Jura, France
An unlikely superstar, the Tissot family has been making delicious wines according to the principles of biodynamics for two generations so far.

We have the Traminer, the Indigene, and many of the other Tissot wines in stock; come by today to see what all of the excitement is about!
2014 Vina Real Reserva
Burgundy red color with garnet tones on the meniscus. High and persistent aromatic intensity, highlighting the forest fruits in jam. Also licorice, very typical from the variety, all well assembled with the roasted aromas coming from aging in barrels as spices and balsamic. In the mouth it presents itself as a structured wine, with body and vigorous tannins very present and well rounded.
2014 Au Sommet "Atlas Peak"
Napa Valley, California
2014 Au Sommet is one of the best wines off this property on Atlas Peak in the western Vaca Mountain range. Aromatic, intense and yet also light on its feet, the 2014 speaks to weightless intensity. A host of sweet tobacco, cedar, menthol, dried herbs and licorice add nuance throughout in this full-bodied, rich and promising wine
