New Art Show In January

Suzanne Brooker

Painting with Paper: Collage Works


January 3rd-February 25th

Artist Reception Sunday January 14th, 3-5pm

My interest in collage began in 1980’s as an extension of my work as a filmmaker. Like a single still taken from a movie, each piece explores the interaction between photographic realness and abstract imagery.

Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.

Ending It Right,

Two Days of New Year’s Bubbles

We are ready to kick 2017 out the door and welcome in 2018.  Of course, that requires lots of bubbles.  This weekend we’ll be opening them throughout the day (The cork will come out of the Champagne at 1pm both days.)  Come by and raise a glass with us.

2012 Olivier Morin, Bourgogne Chitry  $15

2014 Domaine Regis Rossignol, Changarnier  $27
Pinot Noir
Régis Rossignol’s first harvest was 1950 and he completed his 62nd in 2011 on his 7 hectare estate. Régis’ winemaking philosophy is very much to craft ‘vins de terroir’, and as such he has retained most of the traditions handed down to him by his father. The Changarnier is a beautiful wine with pretty strawberry and crisp red cherry fruit on the nose. Dry, with plenty of ripe fruit on the finish. The wine is no shrinking violet and has fine tannins and high acidity.
 
2014 Chateau Angludet, Reserve d’Angludet Margaux $35
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
Surrounded as it is by Grand Cru Classé properties, Château Angludet would almost certainly have been included in the famous 1855 Classification, had the property not been broken up as part of an inheritance settlement.  The Sichel family bought the estate in 1961.  Since then, they have worked to restore and improve the vineyard and cellars, giving Angludet back the reputation its exceptional terroir deserves.  The Reserve is Fragrant and alluring, with classy, ripe, slightly spicy aromas and a palate that is rich, supple and loaded with exotic flavors of sweet blackcurrant, licorice and pencil shavings.  It has elegance, aromatic finesse and their exceptional ageing potential.
