Vino Rosso

Italy

 

Badia Coltibuono Cetamura Chianti – Tuscany – 2012. 90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo.  A bright, intense

red with scents of cherries and ripe wild berries. Soft, balanced & full-flavored with good structure.

Well-balanced acidity & a long clean finish.

 

La Quercia Montepulciano – Abruzzo – 2012. 100% Montepulciano.  Monterosso’s owner, Aaron Burks,

purchased his first bottle of Montepulciano at a small market in Tuscany and has been a fan ever since.

This is one of the best quality, most expressive and balanced Montepulcianos available.  This wine is also 100% organic.

 

Pinnacoli Primitivo di Manduria – Puglia – 2011. 100% Primitivo. Pinnacoli are symbols of good fortune at the pinnacle of cone roofs on ancient stone dwellings in Puglia. Pinnacoli Primitivo is the pinnacle of this classic varietal. “Vinous rather than jammy, this Primitivo offers a zinny array of black herb scents & spicy red fruit. The tannins are gentle, balancing the ripeness of the fruit with scents of coffee & freshly turned earth.” 90 points – Wine & Spirits.

 

Sikelia Nero d’Avola – Sicilia – 2012. 100% Nero d’Avola. Sikelia is the name given by ancient Greek sailors to the island jewel of the Mediterranean – Sicily.  Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s most important varietal.  It means “black of Avola” (an ancient town), and offers a dark, lush wine that comes from its spicy, complex fruit.  It’s wonderful, young & fresh – with notes of sweet smoke, blackberry cobbler & morello cherry.

 

Villadoria Bricco Magno Rosso – Piedmont – 2009. 100% Nebbiolo.  Ruby red with garnet hints. Violets, rose, vanilla and cocoa scents on the nose. Warm, robust, velvety, soft and persistent on the palate with a harmonious, enveloping finish.

 

Antonio Sanguineti Nessun Dorma Super Tuscan – Tuscany – 2012. 50% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot, 20% Syrah.  The Merlot is intensely floral & elegant, the Sangiovese is fresh & bright, and the Syrah adds depth & body – resulting in a bold expression of forest-floor truffle, ripe cherry & blackberry preserves.

 

Saracco Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) – Piedmont – 2010. 100% Pinot Noir. This wine exemplifies the Piedmont landscape, characterized by the magnificent Alps rising up from the hills. It combines the traditional delicate bouquet of red berries and a velvety taste with good acidity, round body, complex structure and high persistence on the palate.

 

Castellare Chianti Classico – Tuscany – 2011. 95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo.  This is a robust, well-balanced and well-structured Chianti with deep cherry flavors and firm tannins.  Aged in French oak barrels.

 

Zenato “Ripassa” Valpolicella Superiore – Veneto – 2010. 80% Corvina, 10% Sangiovese,

10% Rondinella.  A “Poor Man’s Amarone”.  Select batches of Valpolicella are “re-passed” over Amarone’s lees, which gives this wine deeper color, increased extract and more complex aromas.  Full bodied, harmonic and velvety on the palate.  One of Aaron’s personal favorites.

 

Villadoria Barolo – Piedmont – 2008. 100% Nebbiolo. A garnet red color with a delicate, appealing, intense bouquet, reminiscent of violets and dry roses, alcohol-soaked cherries, vanilla, tobacco, truffles and pepper. The taste is full, robust, austere but velvety and harmonious. 92 points – Wine Spectator.

 

Zonin Amarone della Valpolicella – Veneto – 2008. 60% Corvina, 35% Rondinella and 5% Molinara.  Amarone is a revered wine in Italy.  The grapes are dried for 3 months to raisin, then fermented on the skins for 4-6 weeks.  Aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 2 years and in the bottle for 6 months.  A broad and nuanced bouquet with scents of wild berries.  Majestic & velvety flavor with richly fruity dried grape tones.  This is a big and exciting wine.  90 points – Wine Spectator.

Fine Local & Italian Wine

Washington

 

Monterosso’s Mountain Red Select – 2009. 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 30% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Carmenere.  Our private label house wine is a delectable blend of premium Washington grapes from the Columbia Valley.  Inviting aromatics entice you with violets, sandalwood, dark cherries and plums.  The aromas are reflected in the palate with hints of coriander and green olives with supple tannins and firm acidity.  An “intriguing” blend with complexity and structure that will keep you coming back for more.

 

Terra Blanca Arch Terrace Merlot – Red Mountain – 2009. 97% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon.  The nose is forward, opening up with cedar and oak.  Dark fruit flavors of black cherry intermingle with vanilla and clove, leading to a lingering finish that leaves you wanting more.  A Washington favorite, bursting with dark cherries and delicate tannins.

 

Purple Star Cabernet Sauvignon – Columbia Valley – 2012. 98.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Petit Verdot. Aged for 15 months in 100% French oak barrels, 6% new.

This medium bodied estate red has tantalizing holiday aromas of spicy plum and smoked meats backed by hints of lavender and menthol. The flavors are dominated by both plum and cherry that transition to hints of cedar on the finish.

 

Sleeping Dog Merlot – Columbia Valley – 2005. 97% Merlot, 3% Malbec. This Merlot is aging beautifully. Medium red color with brick tones. Aromas of black pepper, cherry, anise, herbs and cedar. The rich entry of black cherry and black raspberry is held up by rewarding tannins and juicy acidity of ripe red currants. The finish offers complexity of cocoa powder and eucalyptus. Outstanding – Great Northwest Wine.

 

Novelty Hill Stillwater Vineyard Malbec – Columbia Valley – 2010. 93% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Varietal bottlings of Columbia Valley Malbec continue to gain a following, and Novelty Hill’s estate vineyard, Stillwater Creek, located on a steep, south-facing site on the Royal Slope of the Frenchman Hills is leading the way. This limited release Malbec offers an enticing nose of wild blackberry cobbler, mocha and spice. Dark fruit, chocolate and vanilla spice coat the palate and continue across a weighty, well-balanced finish.  90 points – Wine Spectator.

 

Zephros Sheridan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – Yakima Valley – 2007. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged 24 months in new French Oak. Appears quite mature initially, exploding with a freshness that belies the bottle age. Aromas of Lebanese pomegranate molasses and bright red fruit with touches of ripe black cherry and plum. Full and fleshy on the palate with a full, wide swath of blackstrap molasses, cherry and dark chocolate date cake rounding out the mouthfeel. Finishes with tangy dried cranberry, black tea and crème de cassis.

 

Daven Lore Tempranillo – Snipes Mountain – 2011. 85% Tempranillo, 9% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Grenache.  This Iberian red grape delivers a wild blackberry flavor with a hint of orange blossom.  A richness emerges with hazelnut, vanilla, caramel and sandalwood flavors mixing well with the blackberry that lingers on the finish.

Zonin Prosecco – Italy – NV. Bright pale straw-yellow with an attractively intense bouquet.  Fruity and aromatic, with hints of wisteria and apples.  Well-balanced and appealing with the extremely delicate almond note that is typical of Prosecco.

 

Trevisiol Prosecco Extra Dry – Italy – NV. Italian “Champagne” from the Veneto region with subtle flower and fruit aromas that make the palate deliciously light and playful.  Unlike many Champagnes, it is not harsh – it tickles the throat with a peachy softness and is flecked with minerality that remains simple in the best of ways.

 

Berry Bubbly! – You simply must try this breathtaking blend of sparkling Prosecco and raspberry Framboise! A light, effervescent delight that dances on the tongue with fresh berries, lively acidity and gentle bubbles.

 

Grahams Six Grapes Reserve Port – Portugal – NV. (187 ml) – A big hearted wine – fruity, robust and of superb quality. Blended to be similar to a young Vintage Port – and often referred to as “the everyday Port for the Vintage Port drinker”.
