  • Santiam Wine & Bistro May Red Cheap & Cheerful $99.90
    • 2022 Do Epic Sh*it by Browne WA. $20 Aromatics of black fruit and dusty oak lead to flavors of anise, Bing cherry and allspice. This Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly smooth with round tannins and leaves a fruty finish of red apple, plum and milk chocolate.
    • 2021 Tyrus Evan Red Blend Columbia Valley $21 If you follow classic Oregon Pinot Noir you surely know the wines of Ken Wright, one of the most important vintners of the past 40 years. But you may not know this family brand, named for his two sons. Tyrus Evan wines are priced lower than the Ken Wrights, and focus on Washington rather than Oregon vineyards. This brand new release is a classic Bordeaux blend drawing almost half its grapes from the outstanding Cold Creek vineyard. It's bright and spicy with cassis, black cherry, cocoa, espresso and baking spices galore. It sets up firm but fruit forward, and can benefit from decanting to pull all its components into balance. 1568 cases; 14%; $24 (Columbia Valley) At Santiam Wine & Bistro it is $21
    • 2022 Gruna Grimaldi Barbera D’Alba Italy $23 Bruna Grimaldi Scassa Barbera d'Alba offers intense aromas of red fruits, sour cherries with graphite and menthol notes on the nose. On the palate it is rich and concentrated, mineral and fresh. This freshness gives it longevity and makes it a versatile wine in terms of food pairing.
    • 2022 Growers Pinot Noir Oregon $15 2022 in Oregon saw the perfect balance between ripeness, with a very warm summer, and book-ended with cooler weather in spring and fall. These conditions provided fruit that was ripe and full of flavor but with balanced brightness and lively acidity. The 2021 Growers Guild is a great example of dedicated growers up and down the state’s best regions for Pinot Noir. Ripe cherry notes with toasty oak aromas and bursting red fruits in the palate and a juicy long finish. Enjoy now and over the next 5 years!
    • 2021 Scaia Rosso Veneto, Italy $16 Floral aromas of red roses and pansies alongside fruity notes of cherries, plums, and woodland berries such as blackberries, currants and raspberries. Well balanced, tangy and fresh on the palate. Intense with a good body despite its young lightness.
    • 2020 Pesquier Cotes du Rhone France $16. 56% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 14% Carignan Clay, sand and limestone on Côtes du Rhône villages parcels in Sablet and Séguret The Pesquier Côtes du Rhône is both lively and profound with extraordinary textural details, an explosive nose and great length in the mouth; flavors of dark red fruits, licorice root and cocoa abound within a structure of fine tannins. Drink over the next 7 years.

  • Santiam Wine & Bisto Mother’s Day, May White Cheap & Cheerful $89.10
    • 2022 Duffour Cotes De Gascogne France $12 Move over Sauvignon Blanc! Welcome to this Cotes de Gascogne Blanc from the hinterlands beyond Bordeaux. This wine delivers sip after glorious sip! Michel Duffour's excellent dry white made with Colombard, along with smaller amounts of Ugni Blanc and Gros Manseng. Notes of melon, clean, pure flavors of citrus fruit, an engaging herbaceous note, and a pleasingly dry finish. It is an ideal summer quaffer! (Importer)
    • 2021 Storypoint Chardonnay CA $15 This smooth and aromatic Chardonnay sourced from some of California’s most storied vineyards. Storypoint Chardonnay embraces the varietal’s incredible fruit character with bright aromas, flavors, and a rich palate.
    • 2023 Frenzy Mount Richmond Estate Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand   $16 Expressive and mouthwatering, with firm yuzu, mango and lime flavors that mingle well with herbal accents of lemon verbena, lemon thyme and fresh ginger root.

    • 2023 Anne Amie Rose of Pinot Noir Oregon $20 A delightful Rose of Pinot Noir with aromas of orange blossom, strawberry, honey, and lime zest. Strawberry, plum, pomelo, orange zest, and grapefruit will liven your palate. Our Rosé of Pinot Noir is dry, layered with complex Pinot noir character. We produce a limited amount of this wine each year. The label for our Rosé of Pinot Noir, designed by local Portland illustrator, Kate Blairstone. Kate took inspiration from our two estate vineyard sites to create a label capturing the vibrancy of life in each vineyard. The brightly colored mix includes radish flowers from our cover crops, Western Bluebirds, and wild poppies, as well as strawberries and rose petals which can be tasted in the flavor profile of this rose.
    • 2023 Lamblin Bourgogne Blanc $20 A touch of smokiness from reduction persists in this young bottling but fades with aeration, revealing bright, juicy lemon and yellow-apple aromas. Fresh and citrusy on the palate, it is an easy-drinking, briskly concentrated white with a subtle pineapple notes on the finish. Best enjoyed young.
    • 2022 Chehalem Pinot Gris Oregon $16 Effusively aromatic Pinot Gris sourced from throughout the Willamette Valley. The fruit-driven aromatics belie a savory and mineral-driven palate framed by citrus and early-season apricot. Versatile and fresh, this Pinot Gris should be taken seriously. 91 Poins Decanter
