2015 PETER MICHAEL CHARDONNAY, 1.5L

$325, reg. price $349

In 1982 Sir Peter and Lady Margaret Michael built the Peter Michael Winery on a square mile of rocky volcanic ridges that form the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California. Of the nearly 600 estate acres, only about 20% are planted to grapes. Peter Michael Winery is best known for single-vineyard and estate-grown wines. Remaining true to its commitment to growing classic grape varieties in small mountain vineyards in order to produce great wines, only a limited quantity will ever be available. We present you with four rare, Chardonnay magnums to choose from.

Cayuse, Syrah 3L Etched

$1,350, reg. price $2,000

Christophe Baron grew up among the vineyards and cellars of Champagne, France. His sense of adventure led him to become the first Frenchman to establish a winery in Washington State. He named his vineyard after the Cayuse, a Native American tribe whose name was taken from the French “cailloux” – which means, “stones”. Since  1997, Cayuse Vineyards has become five vineyards encompassing 61 acres throughout the Walla Walla valley. These rare 3L etched bottles are each individually numbered by the winery.

“95” James Suckling: The aromas range from elderberries and black cherries to brambleberries and Chinese spices. Full-bodied and structured with powerful tannins that encase bright and forthright blue fruit, which is polished over by a sheen of glimmering acidity. Long finish.
