Sunday we head to Sanlúcar in Southern Spain for some Sunday Sherry Sippers from Bodegas Barón Founded in 1895, this old Sherry house is located in the Barrio Alto of Sanlúcar, where they age nearly 10.000 barrels of wine. Come explore the wide range of sherries from Bodegas Barón. This Sunday we are pouring three of their creations from the Palomino grape.
Micaela Manzanilla $14
This wine has aromas of nuts and toasted almonds and aromatic plants. The flavor is fresh with mineral notes and while keeping a smoothness. It has a long and lingering finish with a pleasant bitterness and salinity point.
Micaela Amontillado $20
Old golden color and aromas of praline, chocolates, caramel, salted nuts, wood, and almonds. A powerful palate with a silky sensation. Iodine and bitter almond on the finish.
Micaela Oloroso $16
Quite deep and walnutty with hints of oak and a very slightly salty savory hint, rich and quite full with an interesting interplay between fruity and savory. The palate is dry and quite full yet still with that slightly fruity note, traces of tannin from the wood but well rounded, with hints of burnt sugar, coffee and a clean tasty, very slightly tangy finish.
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.
