Betz Family Clos de Betz 2013

Betz Family Clos de Betz is 67 % Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot

SALE!
Washington southern Rhone varieties continue their winning streak, proving to excel in cool and hot vintages. Fans of this
Southern Rhone-inspired wine will note that there’s no Counoise in the 2012 blend as there has been in recent vintages; that variety ripened fine, but they lacked the penetrating character needed to complement the final wine. The Mourvedre fraction (15%) stepped through in the wine, making the 2012 deeper, more structured yet finely layered. Grenache (50%) still dominates the blend, with its creamy black raspberry, wild dried strawberry, dried herbs and floral notes. Cinsault (20%) fills in with its dusty blue notes, and Yakima Valley Syrah (15%) provides more backbone. This is a Bésoleil for the cellar, dense and full, and a few years of aging will expand its Chateauneuf-like appeal.

"The only other 2013 reviewed on this go around (most were reviewed last year), the 2013 Clos de Betz checks in as a blend of 63% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Petit Verdot, mostly from Red Mountain and Yakima Valley, that spent 19 months in French oak. Sexy, supple, perfumed and beautifully complex, with notes of currants, dried flowers and an almost garrigue like perfume, this full-bodied beauty is already impossible to resist, yet will absolutely cruise for another 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck"

The grapes are harvested very early in the morning to maintain freshness, the alcoholic fermentation occurs at 14-15°C. When the alcoholic fermentation finishes, one part of the wine is kept on a pump-over programme. Once the wine has been blended it is clarified, then undergoes cold stabilization and then later filtered through soil. On the bottling line it is filtered again through a sterile sheet and a membrane to ensure that it is micro-biologically stable.

Serve with shellfish, fish and sushi.


 
Avennia Oliane Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Avennia Oliane Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc.


We believe Washington State can make Sauvignon Blanc that competes with any in the world. Oliane is barrel fermented in French oak using native yeast and aged on the lees for 7 months. It is bottled unfined to allow for greatest expression and complexity.

A well balanced and elegantly refreshing old world style Sauvignon Blanc.

“Leads with ripe aromas of grapefruit, Meyer lemon, peach, honey, and spring flowers. The palate is quite rich and palate coating, with stone fruits, citrus pith, crushed seashell, and sweet floral elements. A streak of minerally acidity keeps the wine focused and quenching through the finish.” - Chris Peterson, Winemaker

Review:

"A blend of Boushey Vineyard and Red Willow, the 100% varietal 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Oliane offers racy, lively notes of citrus, lime, and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, fresh, lively, yet textured, with good density, it will benefit from a year of bottle age and keep for a decade.”

Boxwood Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Boxwood Estate Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc.

A pale lemon color reflects an overall citrusy bouquet and flavor profile, captured by bursts of fresh, bright acidity. Lemons and lime zest, as well as passionfruit and pear dance along the mid-palate, accentuated by a creamy and luxurious finish.

Harris Estate Caseys Lakeview Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The Cabernet Sauvignon Casey’s Lakeview is similarly inky bluish/purple to the rim. Tasting like blood, this wine is dense and rich with lots of chocolate, espresso, earth and spice. It is deep, full-bodied, and again, a masculine style of wine that needs at least 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep for 25 or more years.

Lakeview Vineyard is the winery’s mid-block vineyard planted to a combination of clone 6 & 337 Cabernet Sauvignon on 101-14 rootstock. Excellent drainage from the rocky and chalky soils plus plenty of sunlight throughout the day produces wines of bold character with mouth filling flavors.

Organic farming methods are used to produce this Cabernet Sauvignon Casey's Lakeview vineyard. Vines are 17 years old. Ageing in French oak barrels (85% new) for 20 months, then 12 months in bottle prior to release. Non-filtered.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Casey’s Lakeview is similarly inky bluish/purple to the rim. Tasting like blood, this wine is dense and rich with lots of chocolate, espresso, earth and spice.

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #222, December 2015), 95 pts

"Darker tonalities of fruit along with distinctly savory undertones are two of the signatures in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Casey's Lakeview Vineyard. Rich, ample and powerful, the Casey's Lakeview offers notable richness to fill out its broad-shouldered frame. Hints of lavender and mint add nuance in a virile Cabernet Sauvignon that needs at least a few years to fully come together. - Antonio Galloni"

Kennedy Point Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Kennedy Point Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc.

Kennedy Point Vineyard makes a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that captures the essence of the regional fruit. The grapes, grown in the hot, stony soils of the Wairau, produce a wine redolent of fresh cut wild flowers and a full palate of passion fruit, gooseberry and citrus. The wine has a crisp dry finish and is perfect as an aperitif, with seafood or any light summer meal.

Product Description

Madrigal Family Sauvignon Blanc 2013 comes from these vineyards:
60% Humphrey Vineyard
27% Madrigal Estate Vineyard
9% Mello Vineyard
4% Cunat Family Vineyard

APPEARANCE: The wine is clear and brilliant, with a pale straw color that evolves into a thin clear meniscus at the edge of the glass.

NOSE: The wine is bright & clean, light in intensity and showing youthful vibrancy. Initially the nose shows notes of hay, cut green grass and lemon zest, eventually offering more tropical notes of passion fruit and casaba melon.

The Madrigal Family Winery Estate

Since the late 1930's, three generations of the Madrigal family have farmed some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. The family history is a constant source of inspiration, and guides us in our wine making now. We value the long relationship we've had with the land and the people here, believing that the combined wisdom of the folks who’ve been here for generations and a deep appreciation of these vineyards can be tasted in our wine.

Today, the company is run by Chris Madrigal, the founder's grandson. Our winemaker is the acclaimed Ed Sbragia, who built his reputation over 30 years of winemaking in the Napa, Sonoma and Dry Creek Valleys. Ed’s wines have won awards for years and he’s proud of the reputation he’s earned. “I just do what I love and work with the gifts of the land,” said Ed. “All with a passion and pride passed down through generations at home.”

Chris' grandparents left Mexico in the late 1930's and arrived in the Napa Valley where they began farming apples, pears, walnuts and grapes. They were one of the first, if not the first, Mexican family in the upper valley. Chris' father, Jess, early on chose to focus on wine and started the family's vineyard management business. Today, that company manages over 800 acres.

Chris' passion for winemaking inspired him to establish Madrigal Family Winery. In 1995, Madrigal Family Winery produced its first vintage of 500 cases of Petite Sirah

As a member of the 3rd generation of the Madrigal family, Chris continues the family's commitment to excellence and its legacy of developing outstanding vineyards and award-winning wines.

Chris ultimately attributes the family’s success to a strong work ethic. He also believes that luck has its hand in the equation. “I always say sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. I like being good and a lot of the things that have happened in our life has been a result of working hard; but if there wasn’t luck involved with it or if we weren’t at the right place at the right time, our story could be drastically different. Be it luck or hard work, the Madrigal dream is alive and well!
