We carry over 1000 different producers from France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, & one producer from Lebanon. Yup...Lebanon. We try to update our website daily but what can we say...we're busy and we are a one man show w/ the exception of our 2-year-old who comes in to move bottles around for us. Weekly tastings on Friday & Saturday from 4-7pm. The shop is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11AM to 7PM. We carry some of the more sought after producers, as well as your daily drinking wines. We have a few wine clubs, and a Japanese Chin who will sit in your kid's lap on the floor while you taste wines. Welcome to Rain City Wines

  • Jean Luc Colombo Wines w/ Katie 10/26

    Tasting starts at 4pm till 7pm
    It's been a very long time since we've conducted a Jean Luc Colombo tasting...around 4+ years. This time around we'l have Katie with us to discuss and show us the wines...and the wines...well, they are mind-blowing.

    Here's what Katie will be pouring for us...

    2016 Jean Luc Colombo Cotes du Rhone Blanc "Les Abeilles" - Blossomy and fresh, Jean Luc Colombo's entry-level bottling offers a bang-for-your-buck introduction to the Rhône region's uniquely silken, textural white wines. Made primarily from Clairette, it's chock-full of easy drinking apple and lemon flavors touched by hints of bitter almond and smoke.

    2016 Jean Luc Colombo Cotes du Rhone Rouge "Les Abeilles" - This buoyant red wine is marked by aromas of ripe blackberries, blueberries and anise. It's full bodied and plump but balanced by crisp acidity and a firm, tannic finish. An easy-drinking but classic Côtes du Rhône, it has just a hint of mineral intensity.

    2017 Jean Luc Colombo Rosé "Cape Bleue" - Soft, delicate pink. Subtle hints of peach, rose petal and pepper on the nose. Dry and complex, with intriguing notes of raspberries, fresh cherry, black olive, and fennel.

    2016 Jean Luc Colombo Cotes du Rhone Blanc "La Redonne" - Light straw gold. Viognier brings finesse and aromatic richness of flowers and the Roussane brings strength and round aromas of yellow fruit. Exotic flavors of mangos and apricots are perfectly balanced by a nice acidity.

    2016 Jean Luc Colombo "Les Collines de Laure" Syrah - Ruby red. Redcurrant, raspberry and slight spice. Elegant, refined and feminine notes of wild strawberry, raspberry and violet lead way to a balanced finish.

    2014 Jean Luc Colombo Cornas "Terres Brulees" - A deep ruby-black with purple hints. Blackcurrant, dark cherries and blackberries, with spices, licorice and cocoa on the nose. A very rich mouth-feel with flavors of black fruit, jam, vanilla, spice and mineral notes. This wine has firm tannins and a long lasting finish.

    As you can see...Katie is pouring some serious wines that just can't be missed. Gonna be some serious juice flowing this weekend.
