Full-Bodied Beauties

Stunning reds with the looks and personality

Spangler 2015 Carménère, Southern Oregon

Its gorgeous deep magenta color with a pink rim captivates immediately while the scent further delights showing savory notes of salami, leather, toasted cherry wood, cinnamon-spiced pipe tobacco and a whiff of smoke. Well-balanced with a pleasant mouth-coating body, the palate offers juicy cherry, a bite of roasted pepper and a cola finish.
$39 (194 cases)

Stone Griffon Vineyard 2013 Merlot, Walla Walla Valley

Notes of sun-brewed tea with a tangerine tang and infusion of red berries, vanilla spice, dried strawberry and darker fruits offer enticing aromas. The palate presents a bit lighter-bodied than some Merlot with prickly, mouthwatering acidity, toasty notes, citrus zest and soft tannins.
$34 (125 cases)

The Pines 1852 Vineyard 2015 Merlot, Columbia Gorge

For those who enjoy the aroma of freshly baked, warm, flaky biscuits smeared with raspberry jam, this is your Merlot. On the palate, raspberry continues, joined by cherry and rose petals with soft tannins and just enough acid.
$24 (163 cases)

Melrose 2011 Estate-Grown Merlot, Umpqua Valley

Violets, root beer spice, bitter chocolate, savory Tayberry, loganberry and sweet vanilla tickle the nose; while juicy, mouthwatering acidity and an integrated structure with flavors of warm spice, anise, pine forest and tart red fruits — think cherry, pomegranate, cranberry — dance on the palate. An earthy undertone through the finish is a pleasant reminder of the wine’s maturity.
$28 (208 cases)

Maryhill Winery 2013 Merlot, Columbia Valley

A blend of dark blackberry, sweet vanilla, fresh earth, spicy anise and dried green notes of a pine forest waft from the glass. The flavor is a complex medley of subtle Tayberry and lingonberry along with dried mint leaves, mild eucalyptus and leather supported with an integrated tannic base.
$20 (1,063 cases)

Spangler 2014 Petite Verdot, Oregon

Lovely aromas of flowers, tarragon, blueberries, vanilla, wood smoke, coffee and chocolate lead to savory smoke, robust black cassis, fragrant lilac and toffee on the palate, ending with a lengthy, flavorful punch of fresh black cherry.
$39 (200 cases)

Pebblestone 2013 Ellis Vineyards Block 3 Cabernet Franc, Rogue Valley

Get ready for the aroma of roasted poblano, spicy floral, blueberry, coffee, earthy mushroom and smoke. In the mouth, tart blackberry and cranberry combine with a savory smoked chile flavor plus a fresh, woodsy quality like the forest after a rain.
$24 (137 cases)

Foris Wine 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rogue Valley

Vanilla, nutmeg, milk chocolate and Bing cherry on the nose. The palate is a combination of warm coffee caramel, Marionberry with a lengthy dark cherry-flavored finish. The well-balanced structure makes this wine shine.
$20 (153 cases)

Cliff Creek Cellars 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Southern Oregon

Its aroma reads like an artisan truffle: dark chocolate, violets, cassis, fresh plum and vanilla. On the palate, the sophisticated jamminess continues with more fresh plum, plus blackberry and Marionberry with a hint of bitter chocolate and toasted wood that complements without competing. Flavor and structure glide through a long lovely, juicy finish.
$27 (568 cases)

Pebblestone 2012 Ellis Vineyards Mélange Blend, Rogue Valley

A delightful representation of the grapes (Cab Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc, Petite Verdot) in this blend with roasted chile, red berries, smoke and dark cocoa on the nose. Cola, bitter chocolate, black tea and blueberry play on the palate with a structure impressively harmonious and well-orchestrated.
