YOU. MUST. TRY. THESE. WINES.
Big, Bold, Beautiful, 2012 Barrel-aged reds are here!
"I'm excited to share our 2012 red wines with you! The 2012 vintage is one of the best since I started the winery 10 years ago, and I think these are the best wines we have made ... so far. The Carménère is one of our fastest to sell out because of its peppery profile and soft tannins, and micro-production. The Cadenza is a special treat that is only produced in the best vintages; it's a perfect blend for those who like big, bold reds." Bob Delf, Northwest Cellars, Chief Wine Geek
Come into our Urban Winery and Tasting Room in Kirkland to get your hands on these while they last. Both are very limited productions and will sell out quickly! Can't make it to the tasting room? BUY ONLINE
2012 Carménère (Columbia Valley)
100% Carménère | Only 56 cases. $48 per bottle.
A nose of black cherry, sweet oak, pipe tobacco, vegetative earth, mint and a touch of pickled jalapeno that leads to a mouthful of more ripe dark berries, black currant, cocoa, and bell pepper. It all combines with a velvety mouthfeel, subdued tannins and a lusciously long finish. A fabulously deep rich wine.
PAIR THIS CARMÉNÈRE WITH: tapas, spicy andouille or chorizo sausage, earthy vegetables, roasted peppers
2012 Cadenza Red Blend (Columbia Valley)
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Carménère, 25% Merlot | 236 cases. $36 per bottle.
On the nose there's blackberry, strawberry, spice, chocolate, earth and straw. On the palate it's all dark berry along with both red and black licorice. But also a fresh and savory aspect touched with thyme and oregano. Very well balanced with soft but definite tannins that show up with the finish of blackberry touched with orange.
This wine has already been awarded a SILVER MEDAL from Hilton Head Island Wine Competition (Feb 2015)
PAIR THIS BLEND WITH: mature cheeses like manchego, grilled meats, spicy foods
