Sip into Spring

It is going to be a great weekend here in Madrona. It’s Sunny! It might even be warm!! Here is our lineup for the weekend. Clear through to Tuesday when Spring officially arrives.

Friday – Ides of March

2020 Klinker Brick Winery, Old Vine Zinfandel $21

Just off the boat, or rather the delivery truck.

Saturday – Two big Italians.

2020 Abballe’, Aglianico del Beneventano $15
100% Aglianico
Molise, Italy
This Southern Italian red has a rich, complex flavor with notes of black cherry, plum, and tobacco.

2021 Camigliano, Poderuccio Rosso Toscano $22
60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Sangiovese
Super Tuscany. On the nose, this wine shows very pleasant fruity notes of cherry and black berries, with a fresh balsamic sensation. A wine with a nice structure, a good balance between smoothness and freshness, a nice minerality, well integrated tannins and a long fruity finish. Organic

Sunday – Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

2015 Domaine Sainte Catherine, Côtes du Roussillon Villages    $15
35% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 30% Carignan
A rich Roussillon Red. Full of black cherry, berries and spice notes with a lot of depth. The age smooths out the rough edges. Was $20, Now $15

Tuesday – Frist Day of Spring
2018 Schieferkopf Silvaner Trocken-Sec    $14
100% Silvaner
Franken, Germany
This is not your großmutter’s Silvaner! It imbues floral notes (acacia) on the first nose, then the wine opens up and reveals fruitier notes (quince, peach). The palate is structured by aromatic freshness: broad and supple on entry, with medium acidity. Notes of white flowers on the finish. Organic
Was $20, Now $14
