lummi island wine tasting dec 30 ’22




We want to do something special to mark the end of another wine shop year with all of you. At the same time we are leery of crowds and feeling cautious since Covid. Soooo..what to do, what to do…?? Something simple and maybe a little bit special…hmm…

What we have come up with is a regular Friday tasting, but with several above-average wines you may not have tasted before; see notes below.

We have only a few bottles of each wine, but enough that everyone at least gets a pour of each!

Hope you can stop by…and may 2023 bring a commitment to peace, prosperity, and climate stability from every human being on this precious planet.


EOY ’22  Special  $10 Wine Tasting

St. Peray

Jean-Luc Colombo St. Peray La Belle de Mai ’18     France    $35
Beautiful golden color. An intense floral and fruity nose with notes of iris, candied fruit and fresh hazelnuts. Full-bodied palate with rich, concentrated flavors of quince, vanilla, and a slight lemon zest.

Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Roche Roulee ’18      Alsace     $45
Aromas of damask rose, orange peel and pith, and juicy peach make for an attractive nose; palate has gentle sweetness countered by pleasant, phenolic bitterness that lends shape to this off-dry, spicy, mellow wine. making it generous and intriguing, with a textured, off-dry finish.

Quilceda Creek ‘CVR’ Red Wine ’06      Washington    $50
This medium-bodied wine displays black cherry fruit, cedar, spice, vanilla and minerals…best enjoyed over the next 15 years. (i.e., NOW!)

Betz La Cote Rousse Syrah ’13      Washington      $55
Aromas of iron, fresh-roasted coffee beans, high-toned dried herbs, mineral, blue fruit and savory spices explode from the glass; this wine coats the palate from end to end with supple tannins, dense fruit, and savory flavors that feel sleek without sacrificing depth.
