Sunday we’ll be pouring two classic old world wines to keep the chill of the longest night out of the bones. After the 22nd of December the days start getting longer. That’s something to toast to.
2013 Cá Salgari Valpolicella $15
Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and Croatina
This Classic Classico shows fragrant notes of red flowers, fruits and prominent notes of cherries, soft tannins and good persistence. 12.5% alcohol by volume
2012 Triennes, Saint Auguste $15
Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
Saint Auguste is Triennes’ flagship wine, coming from a selection of their best cuvées. The wine is rich with alluring aromas of ripe black cherries, nutmeg and clove. The palate is full of life with plenty of structure. Was $18 now $15
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.
