Local Lovelies

Saturday, October 27th — 2pm

Come by this Saturday when we will be pouring some tasty wines from Oregon and Washington. The Northwest is bursting with great wine and we’ve rounded up these examples that have great quality and are modestly priced. Come wet your whistle. Local oenophile Steven Brown will be on hand to tell you all about them.

2011 Anne Amie Pinot Gris $18
From Yamhill-Carlton and the Chehalem Mountains the grapes for Anne Amie’s showcase the heart of the Willamette Valley. The cooler 2011 vintage was great for white wines. Their Pinot Gris has intensely aromatic floral notes that give way to a palate of Asian pear, Meyer lemon and rose petal. The body is balanced and crisp,

2008 Vista Hills Winery, Treehouse Pinot Noir $20
Vista Hills is a 40 acre estate in Oregon’s Dundee hills that uses a consortium of winemakers. The 2009 Treehouse was produced by Dave Petterson at Panther Creek Cellars who also manages Vista Hills. The Treehouse Pinot Noir offers an earthy nose with notes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, plum and nutmeg on the palate. Round tannins provide sturdy length and structure. It is a good example of Oregon Pinot at a great price.

2008 Cana’s Feast Brico Red $15
Located in Carlton Oregon, Cana’s Feast specializes in Italian varietals. The fruit for the Brico red comes from Coyote Canyon, Ciel du Cheval vineyards in Columbia Valley. This Sangiovese-predominant blend is a full-bodied and lively wine with zesty Old World appeal that is complemented with a rich and full palate more often expressed in the New World.

2008 St. Laurent Winery, Syrah $16
Fruit growers who expanded out into grapes and then wine, the folks at St Laurent make some tasty Washington wines at quite reasonable prices. The Syrah comes from their Wahluke Slope vineyard which they sustainably farm. Bright and flavorful, this Syrah has a juicy mouthful of dark blackberry and raspberry with hints of spice. It was barrel aged for 18 months mostly in French oak with 21% of that being new.

2008 Bunnell Family Cellars, Mourvedre $36

After winemaking at Chateau Ste. Michelle, Beringer and Kendall-Jackson, Ron Bunnell turned his hand to making his own wine. Bunnell specializes in small handmade lots of wine from Rhône Valley grape varieties. The Mourvedre, from Northridge Vineyard on Wahluke Slope, has aromas of white pepper and grapefruit pith, soft tannins, complex flavors of cassis and Rainier cherries, white pepper, star anise with a hint of grapefruit rind.

2010 Sinister Hand                                       $25

63% Grenache, 19% Syrah, 16% Mouvèdre, 2% Cinsault The story goes like this- Long ago, the O’Neills and O’Reillys two Irish clans held a rowing competition to settle the rights to some highly regarded land. The two agreed that the first to touch the land, after rowing across the lake, would become ruler of the land. O’Neill’s boat was falling behind so a member of the crew grabbed his own sword, cut off his hand and threw it ashore, winning the title to rule the land. This land still remains in the family. A dark story needs a dark wine, and this Châteauneuf-du-Pape inspired red suits the bill. Notes of spicy red hots, cinnamon and pine lead to a bursting mouth-feel of cassis, white pepper, berries and firm tannins.

2008 Mas Carlot Les Enfants Terribles        $16

50% Mouvèdre, 50% Syrah Costières de Nîmes Apparently bad children make really good wine.
2011 Château d’Oupia Les Heretiques        $10

Wine Traditions Of France,

Saturday, October 20th, 2pm

A few of the things we love in wine are small producers, older vines, sustainable practices, and great quality value. These all play second fiddle to pure hedonic pleasure, but there is no reason to not have it all. This Saturday we’re tasting some wonderful French wines that fill the whole bill. They come to us from Wine Traditions, a small but discerning importer who specializes in all the above. Come discover them for yourself.

2011 Château Magneau, Graves Blanc $14
45% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillion, 15% Muscadelle
Château Magneau has been run by the Ardurat family since before the reign of Henri IV. Its 30 year old Bordeaux vines are sustainably farmed without chemicals. Muscadelle used in a small proportion gives the wine an extroverted and inviting bouquet. Semillon offers both ripe stone fruit flavors and a rich texture on the palate. Sauvignon Blanc adds melon and citric flavors and provides a clean citric finish to the wine. The result is a full bodied wine with a nice progression of mixed fruit, clean citrus and rich texture.

2011 Domaine Les Grands Crays, Viré-Clessé $20
Clos du Chateau ,Chardonnay
In Viré-Clessé in the Haut-Maconnais, Dominique Terrier farms 20 hectares of vineyards, sending 25% of his crop to the local co-op and vinifing the rest himself. Clos du Chateau comes from the estate’s upper parcels (average age 40 years). The soils are very stony with some veins of flint and very little topsoil. Vinification is done using indigenous yeasts. The wine then rests sur lie until bottling. The Clos has a big voluptuous body with herbal and mineral notes throughout and a clean citrus core. It’s an amazing Burgundy for the money.

2009 Château Jouclary, Cabardès $12
Merlot, Syrah, Grenache
Cabardès gets influences from both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean creating a unique clime allowing it to grow these differently suited varietals. Merlot supplies the backbone of the wine, while the old vine Grenache and Syrah from the stony upper hillside contribute ripe flavors and warmth on the palate. The wine has fine mineral aromas and deep dark fruit.

2002 Chateau Guerosse, St. Emilion Grand Cru $30
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc 
Chateau Gueyrosse has slightly under 5 hectares vineyards of 40 year old vines that they farm without any chemicals. Yields are kept exceptionally low. It undergoes a long maceration of 3 to 5 weeks. The wine is aged in tank for 1 to 3 months and then in older barrels for 18 more. The 2002 is showing lovely fruity aromas, and a good full structured body with a long finish. It is aged and ready to drink.

2008 Loupiac- Gaudiet, Loupiac $16 / 500ml
80% Semilon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc
Château Loupiac-Gaudiet dates from the 15th century in the village of Loupiac directly across from the appellations of Barsac and Sauternes. Harvesting is done in stages to allow botrytis to fully affect the grapes and concentrate the sugars. The wine is one of delicate flavors and pristine balance. It is a lovely desert wine with good fruit and noble rot at a better price than a Sauterne.

2010 Sinister Hand $25
63% Grenache, 19% Syrah, 16% Mouvèdre, 2% Cinsault
The story goes like this- Long ago, the O’Neills and O’Reillys two Irish clans held a rowing competition to settle the rights to some highly regarded land. The two agreed that the first to touch the land, after rowing across the lake, would become ruler of the land. O’Neill’s boat was falling behind so a member of the crew grabbed his own sword, cut off his hand and threw it ashore, winning the title to rule the land. This land still remains in the family. A dark story needs a dark wine, and this Châteauneuf-du-Pape inspired red suits the bill. Notes of spicy red hots, cinnamon and pine lead to a bursting mouth-feel of cassis, white pepper, berries and firm tannins. Try it with Arthur’s.

2010 Ex Umbris Syrah $30
Ex Umbris “from the shadows” was inspired one year when local fires accented the smoky nature of Syrah. And while there aren’t fires around the vineyards every year, the Ex Umbris still pulls out that smoky character. Its dark fruit notes mingle with hints of tobacco, bacon, earth and white pepper. What could be more perfect for barbeque?

Rich and elegant on the palate, it has layers of succulent fruit, well-concealed tannins, impeccable balance and a 45-second finish. So loaded that it can be enjoyed now, it will nevertheless age effortlessly for 4-6 years and drink well through 2026.” – Wine Advocate 93pts.


Washington Harvest,

Saturday, October 6th, 2pm

Crush is in full swing in Washington with the grapes coming in and starting their wonderful transformation into wine. To celebrate, this Saturday we’ll be pouring a fine line up of local juice, showing off just a little of the state’s depth and variety. Come have a toast to the Harvest.

Windfall Winery, Asian Pear Wine  $14
Windfall Winery is the brainchild of San Juan Island-based Larry Soll who put his science background and love of making fruit wines into the creation of AP. The pear wine, at a mellow 12% alcohol, is aged in oak for two months. This gives AP a more wine-like taste and feel on the tongue. It retains some of the exotic flavors of its Asian pear origins, but has citrus notes and subtle oak overtones.
 
2010 ShootingStar, Aligoté   $14
Shooting Star is the work of Sonoma winemaker Jed Steele, who seeing unique possibilities in Washington fruit, headed north. Aligoté is the fourth most planted wine grape variety in the world, but not widely known as itself.   It is cold tolerant and in Washington State, where cold winters are a fact of life, it has found a happy home. The grapes for the ShootingStar come from a two acre vineyard in Sunnyside. The Aligoté is barrel fermented in older oak barrels. The wine is crisp and clean, a wine with a nice balance of fruit and acidity. Flinty, mineral elements mix with a light floral hint on the nose, followed with the suggestion of tart/sweet apple on the palette.

2011 Baer, Shard   $18
Baer Winery, one of the early innovators of Woodinville, makes some complex and compelling wines. The cooler fall of 2011 was great for white wines, and the Shard is showing that to great advantage. All stainless with no oak contact and no malolactic fermentation, the Shard is an excellent food wine; the acid is balanced by creaminess, with notes of crisp pear and apple.

ShootingStar, Blue Franc $13
Lemberger
Blau Frankisch, literally blue grape from France is another name for our local Lemberger. The Blue Franc receives little, or no, oak aging. The wine is clean, crisp, and unpretentious with tons of fruit, including warm berry pie, complementing the traces of pepper, almond, cherry and cinnamon with soft tannins and a medium body.

2009 Baer, Arctos $45
64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot
A very serious Washington Bordeaux style blend, the Arctos sees 19 months in French oak barrels, 88% of which are new. Like the Shard, this is all single vineyard, Stillwater creek fruit. A blend to be reckoned with, the next evolution of Arctos is bolder than before. Structured, with lots of tannins it is concentrated and fleshy, the finish is plush and long carried on the nose by ripe blackberry and cassis, followed by espresso and roasted herb.
