Hello and welcome back Leschi!
We have loved being a part of your summer festivities. As we slowly ease back into Fall routines, let’s take this opportunity to update you on anything you may have missed wine-wise down at the Market. First, an announcement!
The Madrona Neighborhood Association has announced their Fall Wine Tasting! Save the date of Saturday, October 12th. More details to come, and you are always welcome to check in at the store for updates and tickets as we get closer.
Following is a list of TEN red wines sure to help you get into the Fall spirit. There really is something for every red wine drinker here. All have great scores and accolades, as well as represent a wide variety of different grapes from various places.
2014 Schiavenza Barolo Prapò Piedmonte ($56)
“A bright, open and fruity style, boasting cherry, strawberry, tobacco, iron and saline flavors. Firm and linear, with a tight cohesiveness and a long, detailed finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 290 cases made; 65 cases imported.” ~Wine Spectator, 94-points.
2016 Avennia Valery Red Columbia Valley ($47)
“Merlot from old blocks at Boushey Vineyards make up 70% of this wine, with the rest Cabernet Franc from esteemed Champoux Vineyard. Fascinating aromas of ripe red raspberry, earth, green herbs, cigar box and flower are followed by ripe, hedonistic fruit flavors that show the warmth of the vintage. Coffee notes linger on the finish. Best after 2023. Cellar Selection.” ~Patrick Sullivan, 96-points.
