Deal or No Deal, Discount Discoveries,

Saturday, April 12th, 2pm

There are many reasons for a wine’s price to drop.  Sometimes it is just the next vintage is on the way.  Sometimes it is that the wine is just bad.  And it is hard to tell the difference without pulling the cork.  Mark & I love a deal and as a result we pull a lot of corks. Stop by on Saturday as we’ll be pouring some our current bargains.  We’ve tried them and think they are pretty good.  But don’t take our word for it.  Come find out for yourself.  Howie Mandel will not be here.

Roots & Renegades – NW New Releases,

Saturday, April 4th, 2pm

April Showers bring new wine releases along with the blossoms.  This Saturday we’ll be pouring some new wines from Sleight of Hand Cellars’ Renegade Wines from Walla Walla and Roots Winery out of the Willamette.  It is a fresh and spring-like lineup that will make you bloom.

2013 Sleight of Hand, Renegade Rose $11
79% Syrah, 14% Cinsault, 7% Counoise
The grapes were pressed directly after harvesting, and the juice was drained to stainless steel tanks, where the wine was fermented at a cool temperature to retain the fresh fruit characters of the final product. It has wonderful aromas of fresh pomegranates and citrus, some sweet red berries, and even rhubarb. This wine will be the perfect pairing with a fresh beet salad and crumbled goat cheese, or grilled salmon on your deck. 

2011 Roots, Melon de Bourgogne
Roots is a 7 acre estate in the Yamhill-Carlton district of the Willamette. Run by Chris Berg, Roots is an under the radar star of Oregon Pinot.  Their Mellon de Bourgogne (otherwise known as Muscadet) sourced from Deux Vert vineyard picks up a bit more body than its European cousin, but retains the that crisp freshness that goes great with shellfish.

2012 Roots, Klee Pinot Noir $20
In homage to one of Chris’ favorite artists Klee (named after Paul Klee), is a fresh and imaginative Pinot Noir. The grapes are sourced from various vineyards, and at $20 is an amazing value for the Willamette. 

2012 Sleight of Hand, Renegade Red $11
40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
The Red drinks like a Washington State Cabernet-based blend, with lots of red and black fruits, scents of loamy minerality, and fine grained tannins that are matched with balanced acidity.

2012 Sleight of Hand, Renegade Mourvedre $16
Only 4 barrels, or 98 cases of this wine, were made. Mourvedre is normally a minor blending grape in the Rhone Valley, but here in Washington (especially off The Rocks area in Walla Walla), it is worthy of being bottled on its own.


Sunny Spain Sunday Sippers, 11-5

With the sun at least partially out we head to Spain for a couple of lovely sunny Spanish wines. Until 5pm today we will be tasting:

2013 Armas de Guerra Mencia Rosé    ($12)
One of the more deliciously distinct Rosés to come into town. Dry, floral aromas with crisp tropical flavors like mango, papaya and lime. The perfect wine for a litle gardening.
13% alcohol by volume

2010 Ramón Bilboa Rioja Crianza    ($10)
Tempranillo
A great price on a very fruity Rioja with 14 months in barrel and 8 in bottle before release. Lots of fruit, vanilla, and spice.

Stop on in, say hello, and sip a bit.

 


Pinots:

Old World / New World

Gris / Noir

Saturday, 29th, 2pm

This Saturday we’ll be doing a little compare and contrast of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir pitting the home team up against a couple of European stalwarts.  Come discover the beauty and strengths of both worlds.

2013 Lorelle Pinot Grigio  $10
Lorelle is the second label for J. Albin Winery of Hillsboro, Orogon. John Albin has been growing pinot noir from his estate Laurel Vineyard since 1981 and is the former winemaker/vineyard manager for King Estate.  The Grigio is an outstanding value at $10.  The new vintage has just been released.  Come and see what it’s like.

2010 Diehl, Grauer Burgunder 1 ltr.  $12
Weingut Diehl sits at the foot of the Württemberge Mountains amid the picturesque countryside, surrounded by vineyards and a fascinating view of the Stuttgart basin.  The Diehls started making their own wine rather than selling their grapes in 1972.  They use selective hand picking and a gentle winemaking, which blends tradition and modern enology.  The Grauer Burgunder is all Pinot Gris and a world apart.

2012 Mas de Boislauzon, Chaussynette Rosé  $9
Grenache, Syrah 
Every match off needs an intermission.  This Rosé from a 5th generation Chateau Neuf du Papes winemaking family should prove a great diversion. With the 2013 vintage of Rosés rolling into the market we are finding some 2012 wines left at a great prices.  Was $15 now $9 

2012 Lorelle Pinot Noir  $15
It is hard to beat the Lorelle Pinot Noir for value.  This solid, fresh and clean Pinot is from the exceptional 2012 vintage in the Willamette drinks amazingly well without being overly simple.  

2011 Domaine Camus-Bruchon, Savigny-Pimentiers Vieilles Vignes $40
Lucien Camus-Bruchon, his wife Bernadette and their son Guillaume farm some 9.2 hectares of vines, mostly Pinot Noir.  Lucien took over from his father in 1971 and he’s the sixth generation, son Bill is the 7th.  This Vieilles Vignes bottling comes from a single vineyard of 89 year old vines.  It is a beautiful Pinot with sweet cherry aromas, dry, firm fruit and elegance and minerality with an impressive length and depth on the finish.  It is a classic Burgundy.

Artist Reception: Patty Haller

March 16th, 3-5pm


 

 

Patty Haller

“Natural Magnuson”

March through April

 

Artist Reception March 16th, 3 to 5 pm

 
 

This series of paintings is inspired by the wetlands and native plants at Magnuson Park.  As the old Navy base is repurposed and the wetlands rehabilitated, the native plant life is reclaiming its space in natural history.   Some of these paintings are based in reality, and some in my imagination.  I am exploring casein and gouache as alternatives to my traditional oil paints, and I’m enjoying the fresh drawing quality I get with this approach.  


Chile Today, Hot Tamale.

It is a fun weekend here at Madrona Wine.  Saturday we’re tasting a fun flight of wine from the different regions of Chile. That starts at 2pm.

Sunday we’re hosting the artist reception for our show of new paintings by Patty Haller.  That’s from 3-5 pm.  Come meet Patty and check out her work.

And of course there will be something to taste all day.


Vinos de Chile,

Saturday, March 15th, 2pm

Chile is a long, narrow country dominated by the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Its vineyards cover an 800-mile stretch of land with a range of varied and diverse micro climates from the hotter and drier regions in the north to the wetter and cooler regions in the south. Chile has a long viticulture history from the 16th century when the Spanish brought vinifera with them.  In the 19th century, French varieties were planted.  Stop by on Saturday as we tour the vineyards.

For this wine the Riesling underwent twice weekly lees resuspension for 3 months, while 20% of the Chardonnay was aged with oak .The blend is a wine smooth rich bodied wine with a bit of spiciness.

2011 Leyd a Pinot Noir  $14 (Lyeda Valley)
