2013 Madrigal

 


2013 Madrigal

NWC Mad12 FINAL

 

Seattle Wine Awards

Rating: Excellent


Three distinctively different sites make up this remarkable Rhône-inspired GSM blend from the team of Robert Delf and Robert Smasne. Boushey Vineyard in the Yakima Valley, Spofford Station in the Walla Walla Valley and Upland Vineyards on Snipes Mountain come together for this blend of Grenache (40%), Syrah (20%) and Mourvèdre (40%). Fanciful aromas of cherry taffy, strawberry fruit leather, red currant and sandalwood lead toward Grenache-driven red fruit flavors of raspberry and red currant. Juicy acidity washes over the tannin structure, focusing on a finish of Craisins and Montmorency cherry. Fortunately, they’ve increased production from the previous vintage by four barrels. At the Kirkland tasting room, they suggest enjoying this with Kind Bar’s Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt or the nearby Lilac Cafe’s Polenta with Mushrooms.
