Sandy Haight – Floralscapes

November 2nd – December 31st

Framed Giclee Prints of Watercolor Paintings & Original Watercolors.


I’m pleased to present my watercolor “Floralscapes” as original paintings and as framed giclee prints. Inspired to paint the inner worlds of floral and plant life, I’ve been exploring an abstract and sensual world. This direction and focus for my art immerses me into a world of rich color and design as I paint, and excites and uplifts the spirits of all viewers.

Halloween Weekend Wines

It’s Halloween Weekend here in Madrona and we expect to see lots of ghosts and spirits floating through the streets (we even have a goblin running for president this year.)  We will be open on Monday from 4 to 6:30 to hand out treats to the kids and parents that come on by.  (Don’t ask what costume Mark is wearing.  It is a surprise.)  But before that we have a full weekend of wine tasting to get to.

Saturday, we are tasting BORDEAUX!  It includes 2 wines from the great 2010 Vintage and an older 2008 Lannesan.  We’re very excited.

Piedmonte

Saturday, October, 22nd, 2pm

Piedmontese wines range from the light and easy to the complex and serious.  This Saturday we’re tasting an array of wines from Piedmont that show off the diversity of the region.  Come with us as we stroll through the vineyards.

2014 Giá Langhe Rosso   $18 — 1 liter
Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo
The Giá is an easy going Langhe Rosso in a liter bottle meant for everyday enjoyment.  The wine has intense red fruit and violet aromas that make your mouth water for the first sip which is pleasantly dry, smooth and perfectly balanced.  This young wine shines with ripened plums and cherries. The palate is fruity, and smooth with a focus on dark red fruits accompanied by subtle notes of licorice, earthiness, and spice

2014 Giacomo Borgogno, Dolcetto   $20
 Founded in 1761 Borgogno it is one of the oldest cellars in Piedmont. The grapes used in Borgogno wines come from the Grand Cru vineyards of Barolo. Their vineyards are in Cannubi, Liste, Fossati, Cannubi San Lorenzo and San Pietro Delle Viole.   Their Docetto is a classic Piemontese wine with aromas of dark wild berries, plum and earth notes. It has a good backbone structure yet is refined and fresh on the palate.

Made in a traditional style, this wine is beautifully balanced by grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity.

2011 Casa E. di Mirafiore, Barolo  $40
The winery, located within the Fontanafredda village Serralunga d’Alba in Piedmont, was founded in the 1870s by King Vittorio Emanuel II of Savoy and named for his son Emanuele, Count of Mirafiore. The name was lost from the estate in the 1940s and passed through several owners until Oscar Farinetti, owner of Fontanafredda, bought the Mirafiore name once again. Classic Nebbiolo aromas of red berry, leather, crushed flower and a balsamic note unfold in the glass. The full-bodied palate doles out juicy black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm, refined tannins.

Washington Wonders,

Saturday, October, 15th, 2pm

Saturday we are staying close to home and focusing on Washington.  The wines are wonderfully full and show off the Washington dirt they have their roots in.  Wonder what they taste like?  Wonder no longer.

Established in 2001, Cougar Crest owns four vineyards in the Walla Walla valley. Its Viognier is their signature white wine and the only white grape in their vineyards.

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot
Even California wants a piece of the action, Gravel Bar is made by California invaders who opened up a winery in Mattawa up on the Waluke slope.  This Cabernet is delicious with flavors of black cherry flambé, mocha, mushroom, and plum. The finish is subtle and elegant, complex and concentrated. 
 
2009 Côte Bonneville, Carriage House Red $50
62%Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc
In 1992 Hugh and Kathy Shiels planted DuBrul Vineyard with its steep south-facing hillside.  In 2001 they founded Côte Bonneville.  Both the vineyard and the wines have become Washington standards.  The Carriage House Red offers subtle, beguiling aromas of coffee, herbs, barrel spice, pencil lead and cherry. The cranberry and cherry flavors are tart and focused, putting a focus on elegance.

From Old World to New,

Saturday, October 8th, 2pm

This Saturday in honor of Columbus Day (and Thanksgiving for our neighbours to the North), we’ll be tracking the voyage of the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.  We start in Italy, hit Spain to stock up on a great value and then sail directly to the Pacific Northwest (where of course you know the ships first landed.)  Come explore with us as we seek the West Indies.
 
2015 Casale del Giglio, Lazio Satrico  $13
40% Chardonnay, 40% Sauvignon, 20% Trebbiano Giallo
Satrico takes its name from the ancient pre-Roman city of Satricum. Traces of the earliest huts, which formed a village around a central temple dedicated to the goddess Mater Matuta date from the IX century B.C. Remains of her temple can still be seen today close to Casale del Giglio’s vineyards in the hamlet of Le Ferriere, near the town of Latina. The wine has a fruity, lightly aromatic yet mineral nose, confirmed on the palate by a pleasing crispness and a lengthy finish.
 
2012 Merriman, Old Vine Chenin Blanc, Columbia Valley $18
Mike Merriman runs a small winery making Pinot in the Willamette Valley, but branches out to make this Chenin. He spotted an old vineyard by the side of the road late one evening while driving in the wine country of eastern Washington State. It was Chenin Blanc planted in the 1970’s, he decided to clean up two acres of it and make this wine.  This Chenin has aromas of bees wax, honeysuckle, gold raspberries guava and box elder. A caramel flan richness of texture shocked with vibrant acids and flavors of peach, myrrh and toasted pecans.
 
2010 Torre Oria, Gran Reserva $10
70% Tempranillo, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
When you start on a voyage you need to stock up on supplies.  The Torre Oria is a good wine to stock up on.  It is aged in American and French oak for twenty four months and has notes of blackberries at first that expand into plums and red fruit leading to a long finish of toasty oak. 
 
2015 Savage Grace, Cabernet Franc $27
Michael Savage makes this Cab Franc with fruit from Copeland Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills.  The wine has a marked Old World influence, is unfiltered and unfined, with very little oak influence.  It is full of bright raspberry liqueur, rhubarb, with backbone of minerality and earth.
 
2013 Owen Roe, Yakima Valley Red  $30
45% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon
A big bold red from a warm vintage, The Yakima Valley Red has aromatics of spicy notes of cinnamon, anise and pink peppercorn. A blast of black raspberry, black cherry, and a beautiful bottom note of sweet black currant, it sings through the finish with cedar, spice, and floral accents.
