January Tasting Schedule
The Brand New and the Bord-Old French Wines
From Jean-Michel Cazes, the owner of Chateau Lynch-Bages in Bordeaux, comes a lineup of Minervois wines called "L'Ostal Cazes," an estate having just been launched in 2002. The oldest winery in this lineup, Chateau de la Vielle Cure, is recorded as having grapes growing on its property since the 17th century. And the newest winery in this lineup, that of Richard Rottiers, brings a bit of whimsy to our tasting, as the grapes for his "Dernier Souffle," or "last breath," come from a granitic plot of vines situated next to a cemetery. Come try these classics!
January 10 **Special Seahawks hours 2pm – 5pm**
Middleton Family Wines: Clayhouse in Paso Robles California, and Cadaretta in Columbia Valley Washington.
The Middleton family has been in business in Washington since the 1890s. Cadaretta is the Middletons’ spare-no-effort winery to create the best of the best from Washington State – a key element is the new Walla Walla Estate vineyard. Wines are also made from select vineyards from the Columbia Valley, and include Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and SBS (Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon). Clayhouse Wines are created from the earth, cultivated by hand, and nurtured by family traditions, making the 150-year old adobe on the property the perfect symbol home for the winery.

Here are 10 winter wines for $10 apiece that offer not only value but intrigue. Many pique the interest because they come from unfamiliar places, are made from unknown grapes or reflect an unusual style. They are delicious testimony to the bounty of unexplored wines.
