Spring Release Weekend
Friday March 18th 5:30-8:30 pm, March 19th-20th Saturday and Sunday noon-5 pm. Pleased to announce the release of three new wines: 2015 Aligote, 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2013 5th Quarter Blend.
2015 Aligote - Upland Vineyard - Snipes Mountain - $19/bottle. The other white wine originally from Burgundy. Grown in Washington state on old vines planted in 1979. Bone dry, with crisp acidity. No barrel contact or malolactic conversion. Green apple and citrus on the nose, with a creamy texture and full body.
2013 Cabernet Sauvignon - Two Blondes Vineyard - Rattlesnake Hills - $38/bottle. Our first vintage from this award winning vineyard. The "king" of all wine varietals will have you calling for more. Smooth, integrated tannins and 25% new oak balance the dark fruit flavors and earth. A warm vintage with bright fruit flavors and restrained alcohol. An amazing buy.
2013 5th Quarter Blend - Columbia Valley - $32/bottle. What happens when you blend a wine that doesn't fit "traditional" definitions? If it's not Right Bank or Left Bank, what is it? It belongs in the 5th Quarter. Yes, a play on the Italian term "quinto quarto", however these lots of wine are not the leftover cuts, these are prime. Certain to make your taste buds sing! This Red Mountain Carmenere dominant 5 varietal Bordeaux style blend is like none other. Plenty of spice and earth balanced with great color, tannin, and fruit flavors. Varietals: Carmenere, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc.
