New Year, Old Vines, Great Times

Happy 2012.

We are pleased to be ringing in the season with our cabernets well cellared and bold, the 2011 wines crackling with the malolactic fermentation coming to a close and the vineyard put to bed.

Our small spot in the world is beautiful, calm, nice and just plain lovely this time of year.  Regular customers and friends stop by sometimes weekly and passing drivers honk and wave to our corner store.  The new local theatre, the Power House Theatre is ramping up a new season, with “The Four Tenors” playing in February.  The Marcus Whitman Hotel is taking down its amazing gingerbread house gallery but is still, thankfully, serving hot chocolate, apple cider and cookies every Friday and Saturday here in the lobby.  TERO Estates and Flying Trout Wines will be the featured winery in the restaurant this month.  Occasionally, Doug and Ashley will be “guest sommeliers” for the month of January.

Our recent releases are already selling out.  Doug finally released the 2007 TERO Reserve Cabernet and it is yummy.  It comes in a beautiful 3 bottle wooden box, with each bottle individually wrapped.  Only 20 cases are being released at a time and the inaugural 20 are almost all gone.    For those interested in TERO’s 2008 Herb’s Block Merlot, 2008 ST Blend, or Flying Trout’s 2009 Old Vines Malbec, we only have fewer than 10 cases of each, so feel free to send us an email at or or purchase on the websites.
