Sunday we have two Super Deals –A white Burgundy and a New Zealand Pinot Noir. Both are tasting great and are seriously discounted.
2013 Christian Ninot, Bourgogne Blanc “Les Pellans” $15
This White Burgundy from the Côte de Beaune has lively aromas of flowers, ripe fruit and nuts. The wine is full-bodied and round with nice acidity and a long finish. Was $20, Now $15
2011 Mahi, Pinot Noir $20
Slightly wild aromas of cherry, raspberry and strawberry. On the palate, there’s a lovely light touch to the pungent red berry, mint and mineral elements: like a good Burgundy, this Pinot offers intensity of flavor without undue weight. And its energetic finish stimulates the taste buds. Was $30 now $20
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.
