2021 Division Pinot Noir “Cent”
Zero Zero, that’s nothing added (specifically referring to sulfur in the wine world), single-vineyard Pinot that channels the best of the vintage and demonstrates the potential of winemaking without a net.
We use very little added sulfur, to begin with, but have always felt a small amount stabilized the wines from oxidation and microbial troubles, without sterilizing the wine. However, this wine continually demonstrates an unusual capacity to gain in complexity and grace.
We typically name our Pinot Noir wines with numbers written in French, “Un,” “Deux,” etc., and wanted to continue the tradition here, but felt that just continuing down the line didn’t quite feel right for this wine. No sulfur and non-manipulated wines are often called “00” wines in the natural wine community and as there already is a winery called “00” in Oregon, we thought we would be a bit tongue-in-cheek and name the wine “Cent” or “100,” as it’s 100% percent free of any adds.
2021 Division-Villages “Béton”
The heart of this wine will always hale from the experiences we felt from the wines of the Loire.
We love the Touraine rouge cuvée wines from the Loire that are typically served as bistro wines in Paris, and refer to them as inspiration for our “Béton” blend. The wines we enjoyed many years ago while training in France were the inspiration for the Béton cuvée. We attribute the success of our red blend to the desire of so many to have an intriguing and food friendly, yet never overly heavy or boozy red wine as a mainstay at the dinner table.
2015 Hermanos Pecina Rioja Crianza
Well-balanced Rioja with a delightfully long finish.
Depending on the vintage the grapes come from a combination of 3 vineyards; “El Codo”, “El Llano” and “Finca Iscorta” with an average of 40 years old.
The grapes are destemmed and crushed and fermented naturally with wild yeast in stainless steel tanks. Aged in used American oak for 2 years and hand racked 4 times by means of the traditional “barrel to barrel” method, the wine then ages for at least an additional 18 months in bottle before being released on the market.
2021 Populis Wabi-Sabi Red Blend
Highly drinkable and sure to spark a conversation!
A unique blend of Zinfandel, Chardonnay and a splash of Pinot and Carignan. The wine is super fruity and juicy, with just the right firmness on the palate.
2020 Clos de Fous Cabernet Sauvignon Grillos Cantores
A great choice for when you want a great variety of flavors.
A great varietal expression: a bold Cabernet Sauvignon with the typical aromas and flavors that you would expect from this grape variety. Black fruit, such as blackberry, dark cherry and plums. It has balance and secondary flavors without being overwhelming: tobacco, cedar and chocolate and what the experts call “pencil shaving”.
2021 Domaine Du Possible Le Fruit du Hasard
Fruit du Hasard translates to “Fruit of Chance”, an expression meant to celebrate the good things that come to us by complete chance.
