It is a soggy Saturday here in Madrona, but we have a full line up of wines tor try. So breakout the umbrella and swing by the shop.
Saturday we have Spring Discount Wines that we have recently got a good price on. Stock is limited on all these wines so it’s a good time to come and grab some before they are gone.
2015 Le Fay d’Homme Muscadet Sêvre et Maine $12
2013 La Zorro Teso Blanco Sierra de Francia, $15
2012 Tacchino, Albarola, Barbera del Monferrato $15
2008 Marques de Grinon, Summa Varietalis $22

Sunday we head to South America to warm up. We’ll be pouring the wines from 11 to 5 and from 1 to 4pm we will have someone to provide more details about these wineries.
2013 MontGras Sauvignon Blanc Reserva $14
Pale straw with gold reflections. Delicate aromas of citrus and melon mingled with subtle herbal and grassy notes. Crispy and juicy, well-balanced and mouth filling, with refreshing citrus fruit flavors, a racy acidity, and lingering finish.
2015 MontGras Carmenere Reserva $14
Deep ruby red, this wine shows complex aromas of fresh ripe currant and blackberries with spicy notes surrounded by subtle touches of vanilla and mocha from the oak ageing. Vibrant core of ripe blackberry, plums and spice. Nicely balanced, deep and well structured.
2016 Caro Aruma Malbec $13
Deep ruby color. To the nose, we find red fruits like ripe plums, cherries and raspberries as well as a soft spicy feeling. On the palate, it is fresh and juicy, a unique balance between acidity, gentle tannins and alcohol. Long and delicate finish.
2015 Caro Amancaya Gran Reserva $22
70% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby color with violet hints. The nose presents aromas of cloves, white pepper, and raspberry. The sleek chocolate and tobacco finish has a pleasant racy edge. On the palate, the tannins are velvety with a long-lasting finish. This well-balanced, well defined wine can be drunk now, but will open up with more time.
Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2pm until the bottles run out and on Sunday we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5pm.
