ANIMALE,

New Releases

Saturday, May 23rd, 2pm

Far away in the deep upper reaches of Ballard, Matt Gubitosa toils away in small carefully organized cellar, slowly crafting his wines.  His preference for aging in neutral oak barrels accents each varietal’s unique characteristics.  It is in a belief that less is more – less new oak means more of the grape show through and speaks for itself.  ANIMALE is a very small winery with an annual production of just around 200 cases.  We have long been fans of the wines and look forward to each new vintage.  Come join us this Saturday when we’ll be trying the new wines from 2012. 
 
2012 ANIMALE, Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton (Oregon)  $28
After several consecutive trying vintages, the 2012 vintage in the Willamette Valley was just about perfect. Delicate and classic, with notes of cola and rose petals, and a not insubstantial finish, suitable for aging or pairing with flavorful cuisine (13.5% alc, 30 cases made, bottled 5/11/14).

2012 ANIMALE, Dolcetto, Columbia Valley.$25
The last ANIMALE Dolcetto vintage from the Gilbert family’s “24K” vineyard before the vines were ripped out. A full-bodied, food-friendly wine with flavors of fresh cherry and vibrant acidity (14.4% alc., 24 cases made, bottled 6/1/14).

2012 ANIMALE, Cabernet Franc, Yakima Valley $25
86% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Carmenère, 1% Petit Verdot).
From the cool-climate McIntire vineyard near Sunnyside, this elegant wine exhibits aromas of herbs and spices and flavors of dried bing cherries (13.2% alc., 23 cases made, bottled 9/19/14).

2012 ANIMALE, Cabernet Sauvignon, Yakima Valley $25
91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot
ANIMALE returns to Cabernet Sauvignon for the first time since 2008.  This wine is also from the old-vine, cool-climate Crawford vineyard near Prosser – and exhibits complex notes of spices and pimento, firm invigorating acidity, and a lingering tannic finish, suitable for considerable aging or accompanying flavorful food now (13.6% alc., 23 cases made, bottled 8/2/14).

2012 ANIMALE, Petit Verdot, Columbia Valley. $26
Petit Verdot returns for the first time since the 2009 vintage; from the Gilbert “Doc Stewart” vineyard south of Mattawa.  This is the biggest and boldest of the ANIMALE 21012s. Full bodied with notes of exotic fruits and spices, deep dark color, and a long tannic finish (14.1% alc., 22 cases made, bottled 7/1/14).

Indie Wines,

Organic and Biodynamic Wine

from Small Producers

May 16th, 2pm

We like small producers; they pay attention to details, and make original handmade wines that reflect their place, their history, and themselves.  And when we find an importer that thinks the same we like to show them off.  This Saturday we’ll be tasting some wines from Indie Wines, a small importer that focuses on small family owned producers that farm organically- most certified organic and biodynamic.  Does it make a difference?  Come taste for yourself.

2014 Le Cantine di Indie, Sivi Pinot Populus” $15
Pinot Grigio
Sivi Pinot Populus means “Pinot for The People!” and this wine made especially for Indie wines from a small producer in Slovenia is quite popular. It has aromas of sun ripened apricot, kumquat and citrus zest, a luscious mouthfeel with briny seashell minerality and an almond tarte finish.
 
2013 Domaine Grand Corbière, Sable de Camargue, Vin Gris   $12
Grenache Gris, Grenache Noir, Syrah
In 1975 Barbier bought this Domaine, and quickly realized that the previous owner hadn’t taken good care of his estate, and the vineyards were in very poor condition. The old Carignan, Grenache and Aramon vines couldn’t be saved and the woodstock had to be ripped out.   They then started producing asparagus for almost two decades, until the mid 9O’s he decided replant the vines. Of the Domaine’s 39 hectares, 28 are now grapes.  It was a great choice.  Their Vin Gris is lovely, fresh rosé that has a nose of fresh-picked strawberries and cherries with hints of maritime air.
 
2013 Le Cantine di Indie, Polpo Rosso, Terre Sicillane $15
Nerello Mascalese
An everyday wines coming out of Sicily, this lighter Sicilian red, is fresh and lively and made more in the style of a Rosé than in a traditional red wine.  It has delicate floral aromas with hints of red fruit, bright acidity, layered cherry and strawberry flavors and lingering finish. Serve it slightly chilled on a hot day and it is fantastic.
 
2014 Fattoria San Lorenzo, Marche Rosso, Il Casolare  $14
50% Montepulciano, 50% Sangiovese
Natalino Crognaletti inherited Fattoria San Lorenzo from his father Gino, whom in his turn had inherited it from his father Enrico who was also a master cooper.   Il Casolare is Natalino’s ‘red wine for the people.’  The wine is fresh, clean, balanced, easy to drink, certified organic, and in Natalino’s words, ‘TOO good!’ 
 
2011 Chateau la Baronne, Pièce de Roche $34
100% Carignan from vines planted in 1892
This family run winery has a long tradition of winemaking.  Their Pièce de Roche is complex, voluminous with beautiful fruit density, velvety tannins, and a great length of black fruits and spices with a final licorice finish.

Saturday, May 9th, 2pm

2013 Patient Cottat, Le Grande Caillou $12
Sauvignon Blanc
The Fournier family have been farming and producing wines in Sancerre for generations. Le Grande Caillou “the big rock” doesn’t make the cut to be labeled Sancerre, but at this price we won’t quibble. Clean, bright and refreshing, this is a perfect little Sauvignon Blanc. The wine has soft, subtle mineral notes wrapped up in aromatics of melon and citrus and tropical fruit.

2014 Miraval Provence Rosé $25
Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Rolle
The 17th-century Miraval estate is located in Provence, and was bought by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in 2009 and extensively renovated, but they leave the winemaking in better hands. The Miraval has fresh fruit aromas, with delicate notes of raspberries, peaches, and white flowers. The wine expresses impressive freshness, minerality, salinity, great balance, good length and character.

2012 Domain Perrin, Côtes du Rhône Villages $12
70% Grenache, 30% Syrah
This blend of different terroirs of Côtes du Rhône Villages is made by the same family that makes Beaucastel, and who’s holdings stretch throughout the Rhône valley. Perrin’s CDRV has an intense nose of macerated cherries and licorice. The wine is full-bodied with a generous attack, a pleasant freshness and elegant tannins with a thyme and rosemary aftertaste. Baby Beaucastel? Maybe not, but it is a great value for a on a village level Rhône.

2011 Château Senilhac, Haut-Médoc $13
55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
Chateau Senilhac is a small estate not far from Saint Estephe, which dates back to the 19th century, belonging since 1938 to the Grassin family. The wine is a soft, supple, fruit-forward styled Haut-Médoc with berries, soft tannins and low acidity. It’s an easy drinker for many occasions.

2004 Château Lanessan, Haut Medoc $28
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot
While some Bordeaux drink fine young, most taste better with a bit of age on them. This library release from Château Lanessan is a solid Bordeaux that is just hitting its prime and drinking quite nicely with lots of mineral notes, full fruit and smooth tannins. Why cellar something when you can get this right now?
