Forlorn Hope "Queen of the Sierras" Rosé | Zinfandel, Grenache, Tempranillo | California 2019 $23
"At Matthew Rorick Wines, we love the longshots. We love the outsiders, the lost causes, the people/projects/ideas abandoned as not having a chance in the world. We love the longshots because we’re all about tenacity, we relish a challenge, and – we admit it – we love us a good tussle. Hans Brinker, the Dutch boy who stuck his finger in the dike? We’re big fans of his. Penelope – weaving all day and ripping it out all night? She’s with us. Henry V’s speech at the Battle of Agincourt? Pretty much our theme song. Taken from the Dutch ‘verloren hoop’, meaning ‘lost troop’, Forlorn Hope was the name given to the band of soldiers who volunteered to lead the charge directly into enemy defenses. The chance of success for the Forlorn Hope was always slim, but the glory and rewards granted to survivors ensured no shortage of applicants. These bottles, the first produced by Matthew Rorick Wines, were our headlong rush into the breach. Rare creatures from appellations unknown and varieties uncommon, these wines are our brave advance party, our pride and joy – our Forlorn Hope." Forlorn Hope Wines
Division-Villages "l'Avoiron" Rosé | Gamay Noir | Columbia Valley 2019 $20
"The 2019 l’Avoiron is really beautiful in the glass, a rose-tinged, pale but just ripe strawberry hue. The primary aromatics scream warm days outside, with watermelon flesh close to the rind and just ripe straw-berry notes. The wine has excellent energy, with more density than we usually get from this wine, while remaining light on it’s feet. This vintage is easily our first bottling of this wine that will likely age well for a few years—the complete aromatics, chalky minerality and fleshy weight means drink up now or wait for the honey-ed notes that will come with time." - Division Wine Making Company
Domaine Montrose Rosé | grenache blend | France 2018 $15
So happy and loud
Blue flower echo
From a cherry cloud
Playgrounds will laugh
If you try to ask
"Is it cool?"
Day Wines Vins de Days "l'Orange" | riesling, muller thurgau, gewurztraminer | Willamette Valley 2019 $25 (orange wine)
I just tried this for the first time last Friday after purchasing a small amount from the winery and oh my gosh I am regretting not purchasing more. This is the first vintage Brianne Day has made this wine and she has achieved an astonishing balance of aromatics, acidity, tannin, and elegance. Notes of lychee, grapefruit, and mango and counterbalanced by a nervy acidity, underlying minerality, and a refreshing but subtle tannic grip. This wine is immensely quaffable and a perfect introduction to the wonderful world of skin contact white wines.
Enderle & Moll "Weiss und Grau" | pinot gris, pinot blanc | Baden Germany 2018 $24 (orange wine)
"In Germany many insiders consider Enderle & Moll the country’s single greatest producer of Pinot Noir. That’s a wild claim to be sure, but then you taste the wines and you think to yourself, “…yeah, alright, well maybe…” The wines are that compelling. What you can say with certainty is Sven Enderle and Florian Moll fly in the face of just about every conventional estate in Baden. It’s hard to emphasize how contrarian (and even confrontational) their vineyard and cellar work appears to the powerful coops of the region, to say nothing of the “famous” estates who still seem to pursue efficiency, ripeness, size, alcohol and, yes, new oak, with abandon." - Vom Boden
This isn't pinot noir but it is damn magical anyways. Satisfying for those who want a light orange or a rose, this is like biting into a freshly picked white peach while showering under warm summer rain.
Ronco Severo | Pinot Grigio | Friuli, Italy 2017 $41 (orange wine)
This an orange wine is made from Pinot Grigio harvested late, then fermented on the skins for a month, pressedoff, and aged for nearly two additional years. Because of teh grey-purple hue of pinot gris skins it leaves a wine with a beautiful deep salmon-amber color. The note has notes of tropical red fruits, grapefruit candies, blood orange, and spices. It's a dense and complex acid and tannin driven wine, best enjoyed with foods like charcuterie, roasted chicken, and pork.
A note on our wine program from Jess:
The wines found on in our wine programs are chosen for their quality and impeccable match to our charcuterie and cuisine. They are from producers that make wine in ways we want to support - they are stewards of the land, making wines in the manner that generations did before them: without chemicals and inputs, without modification or manipulation. They are sustainable, biodynamic, and/or organic, and are made in the most natural methods possible. Nearly all undergo wild yeast fermentation and express terroir in its truest form. They are from talented farmers and families with an unmatched passion to keep the joyous tradition of wine alive. Most are made in such small quantities we are fortunate to see them in our hands. I hope you enjoy these gems of the wine world as much as we do.
