Happy Spring!

Vin Wine Club

Vin Wine Club

It’s finally spring, which is good news to us in the Pacific Northwest. It means that sun will be here (relatively) soon… hopefully. Vin Wine and Events has a few things going on this month…

Vin Wine Clubs -

This months Vin Club will include:

2012 Domaine des Lauriers Rolle (France) -$12.99 An elegant white wine with a pretty, crystal-clear color with an elegant nose
dominated by the aromas of spring flowers, honey, and white fruits. It finishes with a briny/savory note.

Renegade Wine Co. Rose, 2012 (WA) -  $10.99 from Sleight of Hands, 76%Syrah, 20% Mouvedre, and 4% Cinsault. It
has wonderful aromas of fresh pomegranates and citrus, some red berries, and even rhubarb. This wine will be the perfect pairing with a fresh beet salad and crumbled goat cheese, or grilled salmon.

Tami Nero d’Avola, 2012 (Italy) – $18.99 100% Nero d’Avola This is a bright and lighter style of Nero d’Avola — aromatic, with delicate notes of violets, fried sage and wild strawberries. The palate is extraordinarily elegant with lovely notes of boysenberry, espresso, anise and black licorice.

2007 Cottonwood Raya Jade, Syrah (Oregon) – $14.99 100% Syrah Full-bodied and perfectly balanced, this red wine begins with aromas of cherry blossom, leather, violets, and a hint of pear, followed by flavors of earth, spice, raspberry, and currant.  Pair
it with stir-fried rice and seafood, grilled meats or grilled vegetables.

Patterson Cellars Woodslake Due Anni (WA) – $18.99  35% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot, 3.5% Grenache, 3% Mourvedre, 2.5% Counoise. Italian for “Two Years,” this fruit-forward array of blackberry, dark cherry, cranberry, and plum floats across the palate on a soft bed of fine, structured tannins. Each and every varietal, along with new French oak, lends to the subtle nuances and complexities of this unique blend of 2010 and 2011 vintages.

Black Cabra Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 (Argentina) – $12.99  100% Cabernet Sauvignon and 100% Sustainably farmed. This estate Cab has lush flavors of red fruits and strawberry jam. Oak aging adds complexity and notes of spice and vanilla. Pair well with grilled beef/steak, brie cheese, lamb and sausage.

Varichon & Clerc Blanc de Blancs NV  (France)  $12.99

This chardonnay-based sparkling wine is a great buy for any occasion. The wine is crafted traditionally, using Methode Champenoise, and is of exceedingly high quality with fine bubbles and crisp, delicate aromas. The delicate toasted apple notes, create a crisp, bubbly treat.
Pairs well with many appetizer dishes, Chinese food (esp. spicy foods), Egg dishes, fish/seafood and sushi.
2012 Domaine des Lauriers Picpoul de Pinet (France)    $11.99

Picpoul

100% Picpoul

Very pale, white color. Elegant nose dominated by grapefruit and acacia. Fresh, lively, and fleshy mouth with a very soft finish on the white flowers and citrus aromas. Serve cool at 57ºF. An excellent aperitif al fresco. We find this a perfect match for grilled fish or any kind of seafood.

2010 Aubai Mema Liverna (France)   $11.99

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Grenache Noir, 10% Merlot

This wine is a deep purple color. The nose opens with notes of cocoa and ripe red fruit. In the mouth it is round and full and melted, fine-textured, anchored by bracing tannins. Its aromas are long and fine and it finishes with a touch of firmness that helps keep its balance. This is a perfect wine for any kid of hearty beef dishes, blue (stinky) cheeses, Lamb (esp. braised, grilled or roasted), game and grilled steak.

2010 Scarborough “The Main Event”  (Washington)    $24.99

Scarborough

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 5%Merlot

“With so many great vineyards to blend with, this tasty treat as a textbook is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon, in the best ways Washington has to offer. Essence of black berry pie, tobacco, pencil shavings, black plum and cherry are supple and seductive. Sweet cedar plays a role throughout, adding attractive aromas and depth to the finish, yet it remains balanced and can age extremely well.  5-8 years would have this wine peaking!”

2011 Domaine Gabelas Terres Rouge Saint Chinian (France)    $14.99

gabelas-cochon-z

60% Syrah 30% Grenache 10% Carignan –  Certified organic from the Languedoc Roussillon region of France.

A robust, medium bodied red wine that shows ripe fruit flavors, slight pepper, and modest tannins. This is a fantastic Easter wine, as it will pair perfectly with grilled Lamb, duck, roasted beef, pork and veal.  For those non meat eaters, this wine also goes nicely with shellfish and vegetable pizza.

2011 Donna Silvina Malbec (Argentina)   $14.99

100% Malbec

This full Malbec is a blend of young and old vines from two individual vineyards. Deep purple color with some violet hues, this friendly wine shows matured red fruit with subtle hints of cedar.
