  • Illahe Rosé, Willamette, OR – This Oregon rosé made from 100% Tempranillo offers fresh approach to summer blushes: aromas of lemon zest, spruce, and rhubarb combine with watermelon, honeydew and strawberry flavours in this lean, crisp wine. $19 btl, $8 btg
  • Klinker Brick Grenache Blanc, Lodi, CA  — Ranked one of Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines for good reason, this fruit-filled white combines pear, white peach and yellow apple notes into a long, silky finish. $18 btl, $8 btg
