It is a sunny weekend here in Madrona. And Sunday is Mother’s Day so give Mom the bouquet she really wants. Skip the flowers and gather up some fresh Rosés. We’re stocking the shelves with new arrivals. Perfect for the sunshine and perfect for Mom.
Sunday is also the opening celebration of our new art show Field Sketches 2008-2019 by Jacob LaBarre. Stop by and meet the artist from 3 to 5pm.
But 1st — Saturday is Mayfair in Madrona. So, after you have decorated your bike, rode in the parade, and hung out at the play field, you are going to be ready for some wine. Here’s the lineup:
Saturday we have five lovely wines from France.

Sunday we have two delicious Rosés for Mom.
2017 Huber Zweiglet Rosé $10
Fresh strawberry and lemon entice on the nose of this pretty pale-pink rosé. The palate is juicy and vivid with lemon-zest notes which frame the tender strawberry notions. This is lovely, dry and beautifully light: summer refreshment made manifest. 12% alcohol by volume. Was $17 now $10
2018 Cour Clémentine Rosé $15
36% Cinsault, 20% Grenache, 20% Carignan, Mourvédre, 8% Syrah, 4% Tibouren
Côtes de Provence Lighter colored, bone-dry, fruit-forward with white peach, green citrus, and tangy clementine with aromas of spring flowers, lavender, and hibiscus. 13% alcohol by volume
