DAVIS BYNUM
Russian River Valley Wines

In 1973, when Davis Bynum first released his small lot of single vineyard Pinot Noir from the famed Rochioli vineyard in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Pinot Noir was a relative stranger to the region, but the fickle grapes thrived in the unique terroir. The first to produce single vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, Davis Bynum was instrumental in bringing the prestige to Russian River Valley vineyards, still acclaimed as one of California’s finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir growing regions.

Since 2007, the winery remains in the capable hands of proprietor Tom Klein who, along with winemaker Greg Morthole, honor the expertise and shared innovative winemaking spirit with founder, friend and mentor Davis Bynum. Humbled and proud to be carrying on the Davis Bynum legacy, Greg is committed to staying true to Bynum’s philosophy. Through bold innovation in the vineyard and the cellar, his deft guidance keeps the winery moving forward, while never losing touch with the past. Today, more than forty years later, the heritage of Davis Bynum lives on through the hand-crafted creation of wines grown exclusively in Russian River Valley.


Davis Bynum
Virginia's Block - Jane's Vineyard
Sauvignon Blanc 2018
$19.99 reg. $26.99 
 The 2018 Davis Bynum Sauvignon Blanc opens with wonderful notes of citrus, green apple, tropical fruit and peach. The body of the wine is medium in weight with pineapple and herbal notes coming through on the clean finish which is balanced with fresh acidity.
Enjoy this wine with mild, creamy cheeses, fresh green salads, oysters, salmon
or shellfish.

Davis Bynum
Jane's Vineyard
Rosé of Pinot Noir 2019
$19.99 reg. $26.99 
 Winemaking is light handed, with timely and deliberate choices made to craft a wine that genuinely reflects the vineyard and vintage. This rose has bright aromas and flavors, fresh acidity and a clean finish which is due to selecting exceptional blocks of fruit and picking early in the season when the acidity is naturally high and the sugars are low. 

Wine Enthusiast- 92 Points
Pretty aromas of cherry pie, rose and blood orange highlight a crisp, lengthy explosion of fresh fruitiness in this vineyard-designated wine. Meyer lemon and watermelon linger on the lengthy finish

Davis Bynum
Russian River Valley
Pinot Noir 2017
$19.99 reg. $27.99 
 Davis Bynum Pinot Noir showcases terroir: differences in flavor from distinct sites in the Russian River Valley. Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir blends the characters of three distinct Russian River Valley neighborhoods and select blocks from the Petaluma Gap to create a wine with richness, balance and complexity. The darker fruit tones, richer mouthfeel and velvety tannins come from fruit grown in the warmer climate of the Santa Rosa Plains with its clay-rich soils underlain by volcanic ash. The fruit grown on the sandy soil of the warm Middle Reach neighborhood on Westside Road add to the spice, floral and red cherry fruit tones. The fruit from vineyards in the much cooler Green Valley neighborhood add fresh blueberry and vibrant acidity from the lauded Goldridge sandy loam soils. And a select piece from our hillside vineyard in the Petaluma Gap, within view of San Pablo Bay, adds racy acidity and briary fruit to the blend.
BEER OF THE WEEK
Pipeworks
Power Casual
American Brown Ale | 5.8% abv
$11.99
4pk 16oz can

Brewer's Notes:
We brewed this very delicious brown ale with a decisive selection of toasted malts that bring notes of toasted walnuts, toffee, and fresh baguette to this very easy going beer.
The move is called "Power Casual". Why dress up when you can dress casual... powerfully casual. So casual that it must have been a decision and not a default.
Power Casual brown ale is so normcore (in fact it was formerly named "Normcore") that in a world of hazy IPAs, fruited beers, and big stouts, it's a power move. We'd say it's "not your father's brown ale" ...but it kinda is. And that's what's great about it.

Winter Wits!
If you're looking for a refreshing alternative to the heavy malt or dessert-driven beers that are typical of the winter season, these Belgian-inspired wheat beers are it! Called Witbier in Belgium, these wheat-forward ales are brisk and zesty with additions of orange peel and coriander. The interpretations below all include their own twist!
Avery White Rascal Witbier
$18.99 | 12pk 12oz can
A pioneering Belgian-style wheat in the American market, Avery has been brewing White Rascal since 1993, a few years before both Blue Moon and Allagash White came onto the scene. A real OG and quite the rascal.

Bell's Bright White Witbier
$8.99 | 6pk 12oz can
A straight-forward approach to the style with pure Belgian yeast-driven character. Bell's recipe doesn't use any spices!

Middle Brow White Light Witbier
$10.99 | 4pk 16oz can
A dash of cardamom and apricot lend a slightly warmer, richer feel.

Perennial Daydreaming Witbier
$10.99 | 4pk 16oz can
