ALEXANDER VALLEY VINEYARDS ALEXANDER VALLEY GEWURZTRAMINER’18 – Straw color. Fresh, sweet aromas of kiwi, ripe apricot, honeysuckle, lychee, and Asian pear with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a polished, interesting, medium-length lilac, Meyer lemon, and rosewater finish with no oak flavor. A crisp and lively Gewurztraminer with delicate perfumed style………32.99

ARGYLE AMITY HILLS WILLAMETTE NUTHOUSE” RIESLING’13  “Lean and dry, this delicate white leads with scents of lemon and lees, a hint of clove spice lending complexity. But the wine’s  raciness is the lasting impression, the tart Meyer lemon flavors holding a tension that lasts.”………32.99

ARGYLE AMITY HILLS WILLAMETTE “NUTHOUSE” RIESLING’14  “This is fruit-powered Riesling, finished dry but with a touch of residual sugar to soften the acids. Apple and Meyer lemon fruit flavors intermingle, sporting abundant, juicy natural acidity.”………32.99

CAROL SHELTON PASO ROBLES “COQUILLE BLANC”’09 – Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Viognier……….60.99

CHARLES SMITH COLUMBIA VALLEY “KUNG FU GIRL” RIESLING15 –Tangy and zingy, with lively acidity that balances against gobs of ripe pear and apricot flavors, carrying through the long, lime-accented finish.”………32.99

CHARLES SMITH COLUMBIA VALLEY “KUNG FU GIRL” RIESLING16 – “White stone fruit, white peach, apricot, cool and delicious. Think Fuji apple, shiro plum, lime leaves. Focused and a verya long, minerally finish. Kung Fu Girl…..too pure.”………32.99

CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE COLUMBIA “COLD CREEK” RIESLING11– “This fresh, lively white displays a pretty range of pear, pineapple and honey notes all woven together. Lightly sweet finish.”…………….51.99

CLINE CALIFORNIA “FARMHOUSE” WHITE BLEND’17 – “Emerald straw color. Toasty, earthy, tropical aromas and flavors of coconut yogurt and kiwi-papaya relish with a soft, fruity light body and a sleek, easy guanabana, melon rind, nutskin, and kaffir lime finish with fine, crunchy, fruit tannins and no oak. An interesting, exotically tropical white blend.”…….31.99

MAIDENSTOEN STA. RITA HILLS “LAFOND” RIESLING16 – Lime pith, scratched pomelo skin, crushed chalk, a hint of flour and tons of rocky minerality show on the nose of this tightly wound bottling—the best of this winery’s current vintage. There is extreme raciness to the textured and slightly grippy sip, with flavors of lime, chalk and a hint of pluot flesh. It’s all about texture.”…43.99

MONTINORE WILLAMETTE “BOREALIS” WHITE BLEND”’NV – Light straw color in the glass with intense aromas of honeysuckle, ripe cantaloupe with hints of spice and petrol in the background. The wine is a bit round in the mouth with generous ripe melon flavors along with dried oat hay and hints of white flowers. Nice acidity balances perfectly with the off-dry finish which is relatively long.”………32.99

MORNINGSIDE CALIFORNIA WHITE BLEND16…….37.99

MURRIETAS WELL “THE WHIP” LIVERMORE’10- A nutty white blend: 43% Semillon, 21% Sauvignon Blanc, 21% Viognier, 7% Muscat Canelli, 5% Gewurztraminer, and 3% Orange Muscat. Lemon is immediate on the nose, and a buttery body made me think of Chardonnay, which is actually the only white wine grape not present in The Whip.”………52.99

PHELPS CREEK OREGONCOLUMBIA GORGE” PINOT GRIS’17 – “What a Pinot Gris! Phelps Creek’s unique, high elevation vineyard tucked in the hills above Hood River yields grapes with brilliant acidity and loaded with minerality. Apple and pear fruit flavors as crisp as can be, fresh off the the tree!”……36.99

PITTSBURGH WINERY SUISUN VALLEY  WHITE BLEND15………….32.99

PONZI WILLAMETTE PINOT GRIS15 –Bright and zingy, with pretty citrus and Bosc pear flavors that dance lightly into the finish.”……42.99

PRYTANIA CALIFORNIA CHENIN BLANC’17  –  Juicy and vibrant, with pure pear and apple aromas exuberantly displayed alongside hints of tropical fruit on the palate. While ripe, the fruit flavors manage to remain fresh, due to the balanced acidity throughout.”…….29.99

ST. SUPERY NAPA “VIRTU” WHITE MERITAGE’09...57.99

ST. SUPERY NAPA MOSCATO’17 –Superb Moscato! A sweet wine that is extremely aromatic and refined in character (peach, pineapple, lime, linden blossom, clove, rose petal), supple in texture, well balanced, and very long and persistent on the finish. The best Moscato yet from St. Supéry.”……52.99

THE DREAMING TREE CENTRAL COAST EVERYDAY WHITE’13  –  The Everyday White is a blend of Gewürtztraminer, Riesling, Albariño, and Viognier: Described as ‘A bright and aromatic wine, with fresh floral and ripe honeysuckle notes that give way to zesty fruit flavors’.”……..32.99

THOMAS COYNE CALIFORNIA VIOGNIER’12  –  The grapes for this wine come from a small vineyard on the banks of the Mokelumne River.  The grapes were pressed, barrel fermented and aged “surlie” for five months in French oak barrels.  The wine exhibits a peach and honeysuckle character.”……..36.99

TRISAETUM WILLAMETTE “RIBBON RIDGE” RIESLING’18 – Big and fruity, this off-dry wine feels thicker and riper than the winery’s other 2018 Rieslings. Peach, papaya and melon fruit flavors fill the mouth, with a vein of caramel running through the finish. It’s full bodied and powerful, though it lacks just a bit of the detail of the other cuvées.”…..55.99

TRUCHARD NAPA-CARNEROS ROUSSANNE’13 – “Pretty, lifted aromatics are followed with vibrant acidity through a creamy palate of light (not sweet or heavy) almond paste, citrus blossom and curd with a delicate white pepper finish. The 2013 Roussanne will age nicely, but is beautiful and yummy now.”…………….52.99
