2018 Napa Valley Pinot Grigio

Winery: Fifth Hill Estates
From Martin:
"In this, our thirtieth month of operations, we are proud to release our first Pinot Grigio. Well, it’s sort of our first Pinot Grigio. The French call this grey-skinned grape Pinot Gris. The Germans call it Grauburgunder. So, since our earlier partner wineries from both Oregon and the Sonoma Coast referred to it as Pinot Gris, we labeled it as such. This time, however, we are working with Ned Hill’s family, experienced winemakers in Sonoma, an area that has been heavily influenced by Italian settlers. It makes sense that this version uses the Italian term as it shares many of the characteristics one might find in a Pinot Grigio from northeast Italy. Notes of crisp green apple, white peach, and crushed rock carry the crisp finish."

2017 Madera Red Wine

Winery: Ramos Torres
Blend: 32% Grenache, 28% Mourvèdre, 19% Syrah, 14% Counoise, 7% Viognier
From Martin: "In this Rhône-style blend, Grenache offers ripe red-fruit character, Mourvèdre adds meatiness and structure, Syrah imparts spicy tones, Counoise provides additional fruit, and the white Viognier grape heightens aromas and the shiny appearance in the glass. This wine is complex and complete."

2018 Lodi Rosé of Syrah

Winery: Brick & Mortar Wines
From Martin: We couldn’t be more excited to release our first rosé from the 2018 vintage! Crafted by one of our favorite winemakers, this bottling comes from a windswept vineyard next to the Micke Grove Zoo in Lodi. Bone-dry, the wine shows lots of raspberry and watermelon notes as well as a distinct white pepper tone.
