STAFF PICKS:
Doug's Wine Review :
Day Wines, "Vin de Days," Willamette Valley, 2017 - $21.99
This is one of the very few wines in the world that if someone said they didn't like it, I would question whether or not they have a pulse. This white blend from Brianne Day is composed of Pinot Blanc, Riesling, muscat and other grapes to create a vibrant, aromatic, and deliciously quaffable wine. 
Patrick's Wine Review :
Neboa Albarino, Rias Baixas, Galicia, 2017 - $17.99
True to its native soils, this Albarino speaks of the sea, wind, and rain of Galicia, Spain. Albarino from the Rias Baixas, (the fjord-like inlets of Galicia, just a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean) is often called the perfect wine to match with seafood. Perfumed, crisp, and with just the right amount of weight, this Albarino certainly does not disappoint in the expectation. A bargain for the real deal.
David's Wine Review :
Bethel Heights Pinot Gris Oregon, 2015 - $18.99
If your not familiar with Bethel Heights, it's a family winery started in 1977 and one of the pioneering wineries seeking to find a distinct personality in Oregon wines. Focusing on Chardonnay and wines of the Pinot family, they are now in their second generation. With the Pinot Gris they are committed to bridging the racy citrus of Italian Pinot Grigio and the ripe apple of Alsatian Pinot Gris. 
The 2015 vintage brought a warm growing season and mercifully cool September. The resulting wine has plenty of ripe tree fruit aroma with yeast and honey notes followed by zippy dry finish. It's a perfect accompinment to brunch foods, sushi and dishes with a touch of heat. it's also a great choice if you prefer white wine with a bit more weight and richness.
Madison's Wine Review :
Lelievre Vin Gris, Cotes de Toul, 2018 - $16.99
Lelievre is a little domaine in the Lorraine region of France, two brothers vinifying only a small handful of organic wines that we are very lucky to see here in Minnesota. The vin gris is a lovely blend of gamay and pinot noir- fresh, floral and made for some really easy drinking. Its the kind of bottle that hits the table and is gone before you even need an ice bucket. Perfect for a sunny day on the patio. 
Patti's Wine Review :
Cain "Cuvée NV11" Napa Valley, Red Blend - $32.99
Cain Cuvée is always "NV" non-vintage because it is always a blend of Bordeaux varietals from two vintages. NV11 is a blend of 2011 and 2010 vintages, which happened to be two of the coolest vintages in the past two decades. Expect freshness and a bit more structure than usual. The cooler weather and combination of mountain and valley fruit lend depth and complexity to the wine. Subtle herbal and floral notes encompass a solid core of fruit and fine tannins. The Cain Cuvée series are made with "drinkability" in mind, yet they all age well. The NV11 will age particularly well, but you can drink it tonight. Pairs well with Minnesota's unexpected yet expected, hail, sleet, & snow.
