Southern Rhone


Treize Vents Picpoul de Pinet Treize Vents Picpoul de Pinet $14.00

This wine isn't just fun to say, it's incredibly delicious too! Full bodied, with flavors of grapefruit, melon, and citrus. This wine has mouth watering acidity, and a minerality that is reminiscent of the Mediterranean that the vines grew along. This is sure to become your new favorite white!



Chapoutier Ciboise Luberon Blanc Chapoutier Ciboise Luberon Blanc $14.00

From vineyards dating back to Roman times, comes this rich and full bodied blend from the lower Rhone Valley. Lovely floral and citrus nose, bold flavors of stone fruit, peach, pear and lime zest. These overlooked wines can stand up to about anything.



Bastide de Beauvert Cotes du Rhone Bastide de Beauvert Cotes du Rhone $14.00

More of a robust Southern Rhone wine than you’d expect -- this 70% Grenache 30% Syrah Cotes du Rhone has notes of leather, red fruit, and spice on the nose. The taste is similar to the aroma with a little aftertaste of plum, violets, and nutmeg. A unique wine to try out!



Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone $15.00

Kermit Lynch helped craft this wine from a co-op in the Southern Rhone. Undergoing natural fermentation, aged in concrete vats, this wine showcases generous black fruits, a gentle spiciness and herbaceous thyme and rosemary. Juicy with chewy tannins, a textbook Cotes du Rhone that can work with spicy food quite handily.



Domaine du Couron Domaine du Couron $15.00

All you would want from a viognier, right here! Luscious oily texture, herbaceous aromas with a subtle cilantro background. Round mouthfeel, tropical fruits on the palate and shining acidity.



Domaine Lafond Tavel Domaine Lafond Tavel $16.00

This richly colored Rose from Tavel opens with a mild wet stone and gentle strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry and gentle red raspberry blend with a hint of white pepper. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. I would pair this very nice Rose with grilled salmon this summer.



Domaine de la Cote Domaine de la Cote $16.00

Beautiful and complex Cotes Du Rhone from the village site of Valreas. Black cherry, thyme, subtle medicinal quality (in a good way). Medium body, smooth tannin, an excellent food wine. A great price for a higher tier C.D.R.



Domaine le couroulu Domaine le couroulu $26.00

Old vine Grenache planted in 1932 blended with old vine Syrah planted in 1960 make for a deeply concentrated wine. Black cherry, blackberries, hints of spice and coffee, persistent tannins and lingering finish. Can drink now, but buy two, because this can lay down for another 5 years!



Chave Circa Chave Circa $29.00

Prolific winemaker, Jean-Louis Chave, known for his amazing Hermitage, brings us an equally amazing white blend from southern Rhone. A Roussanne, Marsanne blend, its big, fleshy, full of texture. Honeydew, apple peel, hints of tropical fruits, white flowers and baking spices. To grab a bottle by this historic producer is a rare find!



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.

  • Amon Ra

    Amon Ra

    The 2014 Amon Ra reflects the tried and true essence of the Glaetzer style - generosity of flavor with finesse of structure. The inky purple color displays the gentle but full extraction. The nose shows an abundance of dark blueberry, vanilla, black cherry and hints of cassis with notes of mixed spice and anise. Although still young and firmly wound, the vibrant blackberry and dried spice flavors integrate well with youthful yet supple tannins with the trademark loooong and sleek finish. Meant to go 10 to 15 years to hit its prime.
