Viña Salida Wine Tasting 11-5

Doug McCrea pioneered winemaking with Rhone varietals in Washington State at a time when everyone else was focused on Cab and Merlot.

This Sunday we’ll have two of his wines open to taste, with special pricing to boot.

Boglietti Barolo Library Release

Brothers Enzo and Gianni Bogliette established their winery in 1991 after growing up farming their father’s original vineyard in La Morra.  In short time the family’s holdings have grown to include just over 50 acres of combined single vineyard sites, most of which lie on Piedmont’s famed “golden slope,” and some of which boast 100‐year‐old‐plus vines.  Here is a chance to stock up on some of their select past vintages.  Skip to the end of this email for pricing and details.  Reviews and scores are all from the Wine Advocate.

2005 Enzo Boglietti Barolo Fossati  92pts
The 2005 Barolo Fossati opens with floral aromatics that lead to menthol, spices, flowers and raspberries. Texturally, the wine combines elements of creaminess and energy, with outstanding density. The tannins need some time to settle down, but this powerful, long Barolo is a commendable effort from Boglietti. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

2006 Enzo Boglietti Barolo Fossati  93pts
The 2006 Barolo Fossati presents a gorgeous, floral bouquet that resonates on the palate where red La Morra fruit blossoms with gorgeous purity. This is a deceptively mid-weight offering, yet the Fossati possesses plenty of concentration, superb clarity and tons of texture. It is a wonderful effort from Enzo Boglietti. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

2007 Enzo Boglietti Barolo Fossati — 94pts
Enzo Boglietti’s 2007 Barolo Fossati is a beautifully radiant, generous wine in this vintage. Sweet roses, tar, licorice and succulent red cherries come together beautifully in the Fossati. This is yet another Barolo from a site that is less-favored in most vintages, but that totally outperforms in 2007. The round, harmonious finish leaves a lasting impression. The Fossati is a gorgeous Barolo, and one of the finest wines I have ever tasted at this address. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027
 
2007 Enzo Boglietti Barolo Brunate — 92pts
The 2007 Barolo Brunate strikes a nice middle ground between the Fossati and the Case Nere in its dark red fruit, menthol, licorice and elegant, well-integrated oak. This shows lovely delineation and nuance, along with high-toned balsamic notes that add freshness to the finish. The Brunate is a sensual, somewhat mysterious Barolo that gives up its charms with far more reluctance than the other wines in this lineup. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
 
2005 Enzo Boglietti Barolo Riserva  93pts
The 2005 Barolo Riserva is a deep, plush wine layered with black fruit, smoke, leather licorice and French oak. It shows good depth and polish in a medium-bodied style with plenty of depth for the year. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018

K5 Argiñano is a modern vineyard estate located on a hillside near the Basque village of Aia.  Their fifteen acres of Hondarrabi Zuri are dry farmed in slate and granite soils with yields limited to under two kilos per vine. Uhin Berdea is a selection from younger vines, bottled in February following several months’ aging on the fine lees.  The wine has vibrant, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas, complemented by suggestions of jasmine and green tea. Silky and focused on the palate it shows a refreshingly bitter quality on the tangy, lingering finish.

This wine was born on the banks of the Miño, the great river of Galicia.  The vineyards are surrounded by pine and eucalyptus forests and the ruins of ancient Celtic fortresses.

On the palate, Nora has an excellent balance of fresh fruit flavors and a rich silky texture.

2012 Domaine Thierry Mosny, Montlouis sur Loire, Les Graviers Sec  $18
Chenin Blanc
The Les Graviers is from 30-years-old vines from a village in the Loire.  Although dry, it is a mellow and fruity wine that leaves an impression of fullness in the mouth with floral and fruit aromas.

J. Laurens Cremant de Linoux $17

2014 Mas de Daumas Gassac, Picpoul de Pinet $17
Gassac’s Picpoul is from five hectares of organically grown vines near the oyster beds on the Mediterranean Sea. The influence of limestone soils and Mediterranean Sea breezes is evident in the wine. Briny mineral notes in both the nose and mouth provide the perfect pairing for fish and shellfish.

Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Cinsault
The Cabardès appellation is located just outside the medieval walled city of Carcassonne. One of France’s newest A.O.C.’s, it was established in 1998. Its climatic influences come from both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, and both “Atlantique” (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc) and “Mediterranean” (Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault) must be used in the wine. This is a crisp & refreshing rosé, the nose is full of fresh fruit, & the palate offers strawberry & raspberry flavors.

2014 Somail, Le un de Plume, Minervios $14

2013 Château Massiac, Minervois $18

The flagship wine from the Chateau. “Enticing notes of juniper, rosemary and thyme as well as the savory flavors of wild berries and a hint of the ‘animal'”.
