Hits from our August Wine Club

Ever wonder what the wines in our wine club are like?  Here are a few wines from our August Madrona Wines Monthly club that are still in stock.  No need to be in the club to get these great bottles.

Compton Family Wines Sea 02 Sparking White  $15
Made from the finest Willamette Valley grapes, the Sparkling White from SEA O2. This white blend that includes Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer is fruity and floral with a just touch of sweetness.

2018 Sparkman Apparition  $13
Apparition offers a beautiful bouquet of white currants, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toasted brioche that opens up beautifully with time in the glass. It has a honeyed pineapple lushness, and at the same time, clean, vibrant zest and brine notes, while staying perfectly balanced on the palate.

2020 Domaine Jean Vullien L’Alpine  $14
Though the Vulliens have been making wine for over 40 years, the family is perhaps best known as a leader in the vine nursery business, providing young vines to growers throughout France. Their 100% Jacquère is grown on soils of dark Jurassic limestone and black marl with a pebbly topsoil layer of scree. The wine is light, mineral and brightly acidic with notes of alpine flowers and citrus.

2018 Isaac Cantalapiedra Cantayano  $20
Cantayano shows stone fruit, apple, and herbaceous notes, while the palate is surprising dense, with a beautiful seam of acidity. A lovely and affordable Spanish white wine that shows the potential of Verdejo.

2020 L’ermite d’Auzan Nimes Rosé  $14
50% Cinsault, 50% Grenache
Beautiful  explosion of fruit in the nose and on the palate. This wine is situated between a Tavel and a Côte de Provence. Bio-dynamic.

2020 Paul Blisson Costières de Nimes Rosé  $13
75% Syrah, 25% Grenache
A round and supple wine with notes of red and yellow fruits and mellow spices. The wine is delicately layered with stone fruits, like peach and apricot, subtle herbs and a long, satisfying finish.

2017 Hazaña Viñas Viejas Rioja  $12
85% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano
Coming from 50-70 year-old vines , Vinas Viejas gives up a clean, classic bouquet of blackberries, graphite, violets, and cedary herbs. With medium-bodied richness, notable elegance, and ripe tannins.  Organic
Was $15 Now $12

2016 Château Bertin Montagne Saint-Emilion  $15
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
The wine is distinguished by its delicate balance – the fruity aromas are flattering, ripe and mature. The volume and the roundness in one’s mouth are impressive, the tannins are smooth and the final result is its delicacy.

2019 Famille Lancon La Solitude Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge  $13
50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 10% Mouvedre
A rich layered Rhone wine with a nose of garrigue and red fruits. The palate is full and balanced with a nice sweetness, with aromas of cocoa and morello cherry, with a long and suave liquoriced finish. Organic

2017 Pasqua Passimento  $15
This wine is a blend of Corvina and Croatina grapes with a percentage of Merlot, which adds to its velvety softness. Beautiful deep ruby red in color with an intense and lingering nose and striking notes of red fruits and spicy overtones. Well balanced and plush with velvety tannins.

2018 Castello di Meleto Chianti Classico  $23
The 2018 Chianti Classico is an absolutely gorgeous wine. A burst of sweet red cherry fruit, raspberry, rose petal, mint and blood orange races out of the glass. Exuberant and boisterous, with tremendous fruit purity, the 2018 is a pure pleasure to taste.”

2018 Domaine Delarche Bourgogne Rouge La Garenne  $27
Pinot Noir
“Garenne” comes from old vines (50+ years) planted on the upper slopes, or hautes côtes, above Pernand-Vergelesses. Brambly red cherry fruit and a light touch of spice characterize this wonderfully bright, silky, tangy Pinot Noir. Non-Filtered.
