Animale — New Releases

Saturday, February 24th, 2pm

This Saturday Matt Gubitosa will be with us showing off the new vintage of his wines. We are long-time Animale fans here at the shop and we are looking forward to trying the new arrivals. Come & join us.

2014 was the first warmer, but not hot vintage, after four straight cool-weather vintages here in the Northwest. These new wines are bold, yet balanced, nuanced and complex; they exhibit distinctive varietal character, pair very nicely with flavorful cuisine, will age effortlessly, and promise a distinctive wine-drinking experience.

2014 Pinot Noir $28
Tonnelier Vineyard Yamhill Carlton
Medium ruby color; assertive aromatics of rose petals, ripe raspberries, cherry pastry, with hints of dried herbs and leather; on the palate, full bodied, with flavors of ripe red berry jam, and hints of citrus, caramel, and cola; on the finish, lingering fruit balances this ripe, fruity-style Pinot Noir.

2014 Cabernet Franc $25
95% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
McIntire Vineyard, Sunnyside
A full-bodied wine, of medium purple-garnet color; featuring aromas of dried blueberries with hints of baking spice, pimento, incense, and sassafras; flavors of cherries, blueberries, and plums, with nuanced hints of eucalyptus, licorice, anise, and mint tea. The finish is long and powerful, with balanced acidity and firm tannins; enjoyable now, but will age gracefully for years to come.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon $26
Lublin Vineyard, Yakima
Dark red-black color; complex aromas of fresh cherries with hints of damp earth, black cherry flavor with undercurrent of graphite; natural vibrant acidity and ample tannins make for an age-worthy wine.

2014 Reserve Petite Sirah $26
100% Petite Sirah – McIntire Vineyard, Sunnyside
Deep purple-black color; aromas of fresh blackberries, with hints of just-ground peppercorns, mint, citrus blossom, and freshly turned earth; on the palate, full-bodied and tannic, with flavors of fresh berries, and hints of spicy chocolate and cigar.

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.
