It has been a crazy week for weather here in Madrona with clear sunny skies one day and snow the next. That’s Spring in Seattle. This weekend we’ll be pouring three Rosés in hopes of the sun breaking through the clouds.
Saturday we are pouring some fresh local wines from Sleight of Hand Cellars (Walla Walla) and Torii Mor (Willamette Valley). Go smell the cherry blossoms then come by and taste the taste of spring.
2017 Mr. Pink Rosé $13
2017 Sleight of Hand Cellars, The Magician’s Assistant Rosé $15
2016 Torii Mor Pinot Gris $15
2015 Torii Mor Willamette Valley Pinot Noir $20

Sunday we’ll be sipping on some Southern French wines to celebrate Spring and our new Art Show.
2017 Domaine de Pellehaut, Harmonie de Gascogne Rosé $10
Tannat, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec
The new vintage of this Gascogne rosé has aromas of gooseberry, raspberry, & flowers lead to a balanced palate of aromatic richness.
2015 Domaine Girard, Malepère $12
60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc
An unoaked blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a rarely seen Languedoc AOC. It is a supple, with fine tannins and a smooth mouthfeel, and ripe blue and red fruit flavors that are accented by spicy notes on palate and the finish.
