We stocked up on a couple of European wines before a proposed 100% tariff goes into effect. Swing by the shop to try these moderately priced wines while they are still moderately priced.
2015 Intorchia Vignemie $9
This Sicilian Red varietal has distinct notes of red fruits such as cherries, plums and redcurrant, as well as pleasant herby and earthy aromas. Intense and balanced, it is smooth and warm on the palate. On the nose, it offers equally good sensations, with a surprisingly fresh and highly persistent aroma. Was $12 now $9
2018 Clos des Lumineres Petit Verdot Les Cypres $11
Dark fruit and floral (violets, lilac) aromas. Flavors of black cherry, plum, and sage engulf the palate. Full-bodied with slight spice on the dry 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.
