Everybody Loves A Mystery!

Who doesn’t love a mystery?  Here’s what we can tell you:
 
99% of these wines are Red (there is 1 bottle of tawny port floating around in there somewhere).
They all have stained labels (some just a little, some quite a lot).
They all normally sell for between $13 to $20 a bottle (a couple even more).
None of them were made in Woodinville.
First come first served.
 
2 bottles for $16 (11–Two packs available)
6 bottles for $48 (13 – Six packs available)
 
You’ll have to sleuth the rest out for yourself.

One Zero

We’re 10 Years Old (and sometimes act like it.)

Madrona Wine Merchants opened its door ten years ago mid-October as the leaves were turning and the rain settling in just as it is now.  Over the last decade we have rotated through over 6000 wines while trying to curate a diverse selection of interesting grape juice that is fun to drink and enlivens the palate.

Thanks to all of you who have supported us in this endeavor over the past 10 years and join us as we raise a glass to the future.

Cheers,

Jim & Mark

Iberian Duo

Looking for a pairing with this weekend’s Tapas?

2019 Nortico, Alvarinho  $13
A young, fresh white wine with the characteristic bright acidity and aromas of peach and grapefruit. Nortico is light and delicate, lovely as a “porch-sipping wine” to drink on its own.  Also a terrific seafood wine, particularly with salty, fattier dishes like fish tacos or broiled oysters. Was $15 now $13

2014 Señorio de la Eralta, Rioja Reserva  $15
Tempranillo
Snappy cranberry and tart cherry flavors mingle with leafy and licorice notes in this lively red. Cocoa and toasty accents linger on the finish. It’s bright and fresh. Drink through 2024 if you can wait that long. Was $28 now $15
