Keep cool - From the limited Cru at Santiam Wine & Bistro

  • August Hot Summer Nights Red Cheap & Cheerful $72.90
    • 2016 El Coto Crianza Spain $15 Produced from the 100% Tempranillo, this native varietal is fermented and aged in oak for at least 12 months with an additional six months resting in bottle, prior to release. El Coto Crianza is exceptionally balanced with layers of fresh raspberry, cherry, spice, and toasted oak, building to a silky finish.  Perfectly complements a variety of meats and cheeses, especially jamon.
    • 2019 San Felipe Malbec Argentina $11 A ruby red Malbec with intense aromas of strawberries, cherries, and figs. It is accompanied by a touch of tobacco, coffee and smoothly rounded red fruit flavors from its contact in the barrel leaving for a well-balanced smooth finish. Complex and powerful but definitively approachable.  100% Malbec.
    • 2019 Masseria Li Veli Passamante Salice Salentino Italy $14 Dense ruby red with a purplish rim, it is immediately intense on the nose with marked aromas of ripe and fleshy red fruits, notably cherries followed by spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg; in the mouth it is full, powerful, smooth, and exceptionally long, with a well-defined acid streak which makes it fresh and pleasing.
    • 2018 Cana’s FEAST Two Rivers Oregon $15 Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (29%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (26%) make up the heart of this wine, which is finished off with Malbec. Fresh raspberry and cranberry aromas are sprinkled with soil, mushroom, and herb accents. Full-bodied, palate-coating fruit flavors follow.
    • 2017 Porrais Tinto Portugal $11 Spicy and intense red fruit aromas. This is a smooth and full-bodied wine, with notes of ripe red fruits and some spices. Soft and well-balanced tannins. This wine pairs very well with pasta dishes, cheese, and most meat dishes.
    • Marietta OVR Sonoma County, CA. $15 Affectionately known as “OVR,” Marietta’s Old Vine Red is a proprietary red wine made to replicate the field blends of the old vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino counties. A groundbreaking combination of varietals and multiple vintages first produced in 1982, this wine has blazed the path for red blends for decades. With an historic underground following, it is one of the longest lasting and best-known red blends produced today. Predominantly comprised of fresh, young Zinfandel, OVR gets its backbone from Petite Sirah with about three years of age in neutral barrel, and its savory component from Syrah with about two years of age in neutral barrel. Occasionally, other varieties like Barbera, Carignan, or Grenache will be blended in to complement the other elements. The goal is always to create an enjoyable table wine made with integrity that combines pure fruit, a supple mouth feel and a rich, solid structure.

  • August: Hot Summer nights White Cheap and Cheerful $61.20
    • 2019 Quinta De Porrais Douro Branco Portugal $11 The wine is all about fruit and fresh citrus flavors. With its lightness and poised balance between fruit and acidity, the wine is textured, crisp and ready to drink. Screw Cap!
    • 2020 Guild Pinot Gris Willamette Valley $13 This is a light, leesy and fresh style, keeping it simple and straightforward, all to good effect. A mix of citrus fruit flavors, notably grapefruit and lime, take center stage. It is crystal clear, clean, and zesty, just a perfectly quaffable white wine. Screw Cap!
    • 2018 Havelock Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand $13 Yellow straw color. Inviting aromas of green pineapple, ripe grapefruit, gooseberry, and fresh grass clippings with a silky, vibrant, dry light-to-medium body and a stimulating, medium-length mango, guava, dill, and sea salt finish. An extroverted, flavor-packed sauvignon blanc; Marlborough in a bottle
    • 2020 Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc California $11 "The bright, vibrant flavors in our Sauvignon Blanc offer a pure expression of our diverse vineyards. Think fragrant white blossoms and ripe citrus notes. Crisp and refreshing.”  Winery Notes.  Screw Cap!
    • 2020 Casa Santos Lima “Portuga” Rose Portugal $9 This vibrant rosé is made by Diogo Sepúlveda at the Casa Santos Lima estate – one of Portugal’s most exciting wineries. It's a light and fruity pink boasting beautiful ripe strawberry flavor and a great freshness. Perfect for summer sipping. A real porch pounder here! This wine if you ice it down will beat your expectations! Screw Cap!
    • 2019 Domaine Des Cassagnoles Cotes de Gascogne $11 This tasty French white is approximately half Colombard, 25-30% Ugni Blanc, 20-25% Gros Manseng. A bright and zesty wine, with luscious yellow fruit flavors and mouthwatering acidity. Great deck wine, especially enjoyed with vegetable or fruit tarts and cakes either salty or sweet, with seafoods, grilled fishes, some cheese.
