After 25 Years, Beaux Freres Still Going Strong!

Since its founding by brothers-in-law Mike Etzel and Robert Parker in the early 1990s, Beaux Freres has been one of THE most important estates in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.  Now with their 25th release, the wines are better than ever!  No one makes a better Willamette Valley blend than Mike Etzel and his 2015 edition is even better than the Vinous 92 point 2014.  The Estate Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot 2015 has all the fruit of the rich 2014 plus an extra layer of structure.  And the 2014 Upper Terrace Pinot?  Just one of the “Wines of The Vintage” in everyone’s estimation!  You can mix/match your way to best savings on six bottles or more from $56.98.  The wines arrive Friday and will be gone all too soon.  Don’t miss them!

 

Best All-Around Cali Chard This Year!

St Innocent Freedom Hill

Organic fruit from the cool Edna Valley, meticulous winemaking and agining in French oak, acacia wood and concrete come together in this 91 point Chard to deliver rich fruit, a touch of butter and a zesty, fresh, finish.  From $21.98, a terrific all-around Chardonnay!

The Perfect Mid-Week Cookout Red

Here's a really bold, but very smooth, red with a solid lash of oak that's going to be as delicious while the grill is heating as it will be with whatever you plop on the platter.  Wine Spectator 90 points at a $22 release price - from $9.98!
