Sunday we are pouring two wines that may come in handy later in the week or later in the year. Both are new arrivals for the holidays. Come have a taste.
2009 Château Barrabaque Cuvée Antoine ($13)
The Cuvée Antoine is from a plot of 35-year-old vines & aged in second and third fill barriques. Blackcurrants and jammy dark fruit aromas lead to a robust palate full of more blackcurrant, cherries, a touch of vanilla spice and good supple tannin structure.
2009 Brusset Les Boudalles ($10)
Grenache, Syrah, Carignan
A full and soft southern Rhone.
Was $12 now $10
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.
