Sterling Cabernet Sauvignon (California)

Cocoa-berry aromas are complemented by toasty oak spices, plum, cherries and a touch of smoke and violets. Inviting blackberry and Bing cherry flavors, accented by varietal notes of black pepper and espresso, lead to rich, dark chocolaty tannins and a vibrantly long finish.  Pair this Cali Cab with grilled burgers or sausage pasta.

Mont Gras Carmenere (Chile)

Delicious discovery from Chile known for growing the best Carmenere, the “lost” varietal of Bordeaux.  Medium full in body with bright ruby berries, red cherries and has a nice earthy, spice aroma perfect for the summer grilling season.  Ribs, chicken and grilled sausages all sing with this smooth and tasty red.

Famega Vinho Verde (Portugal)

The ultimate summer refresher and most popular Vinho Verde at Esquin, Famega is bright and citrusy with lemon, lime and green apple flavors.  This wine has a little spritz to liven up the palate and pairs perfectly with summer picnic and party fare or try with fish tacos!

Kiona Riesling (Washington)

A slightly spicy finish puts an exclamation note on the end of this delightfully charming and layered Columbia Valley Riesling. The exotic floral and honeycomb aromas combine with the pear, pineapple and apricot fruit along with flavors to provide a perfect sidekick to spicy Asian cuisine, especially if it’s got a little heat.

Jean Paul Vaucluse Rouge (France)

This humble, classic Rhone red has hints of plums & strawberries with a touch of spice. This soft, medium bodied wine is uncomplicated, friendly & warming making it the perfect wine to pair with both light & rich foods.

Barbadillo Blanco (Spain)

Beautiful yellow color with green glints, with a cheerful and inviting nose of ripe fruit and citrus.  This white is elegant and versatile.  Works well with seafood or Japanese food.

Mirail Cotes du Cascogne Colombard (France)

100% Colombard from organically-grown vineyards in Southwest France. Bright, but with a creamy texture. Flavors of lime, lemon zest, pineapple, kiwi and fresh-crushed herbs. Pair this with seafood pasta salads, green goddess dressing, and classic summer chicken salad.

Pas du Cerf Rose (France)

Sophisticated, savory and bone-dry, this Provençal Pink presents a wide array of delicate and delectable aromas and flavors: fennel seed, watermelon rind, orange zest and lychee. Elegantly styled, it’d make a wonderful companion to fresh spring rolls, a cheese plate, charcuterie or on its own as an aperitif.

Gota de Arena Tempranillo (Spain)

Seductive aromatics of blackberry, black cherry, wood-smoke, and clove lead to a palate possessing lush ribbons of black plum and cassis that finish with a hint of toast and ultra-smooth tannins. Beautifully balanced, rich and lush but not heavy; a natural partner for smoked meats, ribs from the barbecue or carnitas tacos.

Alverdi Pinot Grigio (Italy)

Graciously opening with a bouquet of wild herbs and acacia flowers, this dry white wine is well-balanced with lively stone fruit notes and an almost ethereal delicacy touched by lemon peel and apple skin. Crisp and clean, a great complement to grilled whitefish and summer salads.

Radius Red Blend (Washington)

This red has an inviting ruby red color with rich black fruit, toasted oak and a touch of cocoa on the nose. Lush black fruits continue on the palate and combine with notes of ripe cherry and black tea. Soft and smooth with lingering notes of plum on the finish. A varietal blend of 57% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Syrah, 5% Sangiovese, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Tempranillo.  Enjoy with seared sirloin steak or a cheese plate.

Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay (California)

Bright aromas of ripe apple, lemon pie, and vanilla notes make this wine enticing. The palate is rich and supple with juicy fruit flavors of fresh nectarine, apple and tropical fruits. Pleasing flavors of toasted hazelnut and baking spices add complexity. Pair with halibut or a creamy pasta dish.
