Anne Amie Cuvee A 2005

Pinot Noir Willamette Valley, Oregon
winemaker's notes:The 2005 Anne Amie Vineyards, Cuvée A, Pinot Noir is a classic Oregon Pinot Noir. Dark garnet in color, the fragrant bouquet is filled with aromas of spices, fresh black raspberries and hints of toasty oak. On the palate, it is racy and firm with flavors laced with cranberries and bittersweet black cherries highlighted with touches of fresh sage and cinnamon. The finish is lively and long with a clean freshness that invites the next sip. Drink the Cuvée A Pinot Noir young to preserve its lively freshness.

Treana Mer Soleil Vineyard Viognier-Marsanne 2004
Rhone White Blends Central Coast, California

winemaker's notes:
Treana White is a Rhône-style blend of Marsanne and Viognier, two varieties that thrive in California's Central Coast growing region. Fruit for the blend is sourced from the renowned Mer Soleil Vineyard in Monterey County. Cool maritime winds off the bay keep the vineyards temperate all summer long. This cooler climate imposes a long, gentle growing season, resulting in wines of excellent balance and complexity.
This wine displays the elegant varietal characteristics of Viognier and Marsanne. This alluring blend offers floral aromas of citrus, honeysuckle and jasmine followed by ripe flavors of stone fruit with rich honey overtones. High-toned citrus notes and a solid minerality lend excellent balance. The mouthfeel is lush and full with a broad mid-palate while bright acidity cleans the palate and lends ease and versatility to food-pairing.
