92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds (8/2020) "Glistening red. Spice-accented black raspberry, cherry and rose oil aromas are complemented by a hint of smoky minerals. Juicy, seamless and energetic on the palate, offering appealingly sweet red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors that deepen and turn spicier with air. Silky, even tannins frame the persistent finish, which leaves repeating floral and spice notes behind. Drinking Window: 2021 - 2026"
92 Our Score (2/2020) Wearing a vibrant new label drawn by her daughter, Kelley crafts this pretty Pinot from Maresh and Weber vineyard fruit. Whole cluster usage is about 30%, with no new oak. The resulting wine has the finessed grace that made you fall in love with Willamette originally. Both intense and weightless, the 2019 Mirabai is layered and long with primary notes of leafy strawberry, raspberry, lemon thyme, black tea and savory loam. Kelley prefers not to write tasting notes for her own wines, so she asked her friend Jim Anderson of Patricia Green Cellars to write one. He clearly loves this wine as much as we do... "Three times in my life, I thought I had found actual magic on earth. Once, when I was six, I believed I saw Bigfoot picking strawberries in a clearing in an old-growth forest. Another time I am convinced I swam in a river made of any liquid you wanted to be in or consume. The third time was when I picked up this glass of wine and felt like the world was 100,000 years younger and more innocent."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
