Double Trouble this Weekend

We have two excellent tastings at the shop this weekend!

Saturday–We’re pouring South African wines from Boekenhoutskloof.  Come hear how many times we mispronounce it while you tip these great wines. That starts at 2.

Sunday –Meet the winemaker from Locus Wines
Tasting all day–Meet Rich 3-5PM

Locus is a brand new winery from two Madrona residents Rich Burton & Ton Yazici.  (The tasting room is an unmarked garage on Madrona drive.)  And judging from their first release there are good things ahead.  Rich the winemaker turned his passion for wine into something more than just a passing interest.  He got an Oenology certificate from Washington State University and started to plan making his own wine.  This Sunday we’ll be showing off the results.  Come meet Rich and Ton and give their wines a try.
2013 Locus Dineen Vineyard Sémillon       $15
A single vineyard Semillon from a new Madrona winery.  The full lemon cream body of the fruit is balanced  out by a refreshing acidity.  13.2% alcohol by volume

2013 Locus Rosé  $15
50% Mourvedre, 50% Cinsault
This crisp and tasty rosé might be our favorite Washington pink this season. 
12.4% alcohol by volume

2012 Locus Stonetree Syrah     $25
Born and bred in the Wahluke Slope AVA near Mattawa, Washington, these grapes come from the Stonetree Vineyard. Stonetree Vineyard’s name comes from the large number of petrified tree fossils found in the surrounding hills. The climate and the soil produce a fruit-forward Syrah, balanced by a touch of spice.  Locus’s Syrah lets the fruit speak for itself.
