Wine Flights are Back! Introducing Seven Falls from Wahluke Slope

Posted by John Eckhart Posted on Nov - 20 - 2012

Dear Enotecans,

Thanksgiving is coming!  Come in top pick up Turkey wines and great gourmet beer, come by to pick them up today and tomorrow.  We’re closed on Thanksgiving Day, but we’ll be sending out our Black Friday/Small Business Saturday email Thursday, and we re-open as normal Friday!

Return of the Wine Flights

This year has been a year of change, and in the process of opening up the Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge, we tried a different approach to the wine flight, testing out a “choose your own adventure” program.  It didn’t take off, so we are bringing back the set Wine Flight concept, but we’re sprucing it up a bit.   The new Wine Flight comes complete with a flight board with descriptions of each wine, and a shiny carrying handle to bring the wine to your table.

The Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge is open at 4pm Monday-Friday, we start at 12 noon on Saturday, and we don’t close until the last customer leaves.  This gives you all sorts of time to come in and try this flight.  We expect to change the wine flight every couple of weeks, so come on down today!

The glass pour list will also remain, but won’t include the choose-your-own-flight options anymore.  We expect to swap out glass pour wines on an irregular basis, when we find new and delicious wines that we think will be a hit.

This flight is available at the Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge Monday-Friday starting at 4pm, and Saturday starting at noon.  We stay open until the last customer leaves.  Now for our first flight!

Seven Falls Wine Flight

The price for a flight of 3 oz. each of these three wines is $12.

Wahluke Slope sits above the Columbia River in the Columbia Valley, once home to the Wanapum tribe, which lived there for centuries. Lewis and Clark wrote of meeting the tribe on their journey. This part of the river was known for spectacular salmon runs. Along this section of the Columbia River there was once a set of narrow, long and rocky rapids. The rapids created a series of seven separate waterfalls, which flowed past Wahluke Slope, now home to the Seven Falls vineyard.

The Wahluke Slope is ideal for creating outspoken, true to varietal wines; bold enough to stand alone, yet elegant enough to pair well with your favorite foods.

Seven Falls Chardonnay 2011
(Wahluke Slope, Washington)

Tropical notes & flavors of peaches & pear give way to a long finish & smooth ‘vanilla ice-cream’ texture.
Pair with: Crab cakes, leafy salads with creamy dressing, chicken, pastas with butter-based sauces.

Seven Falls Merlot 2010
(Wahluke Slope, Washington)

Has a lovely juicy quality, with good volume & weight & a silky finish. Nice acidity makes it a fantastic wine for pairing with food.
Pair with: Anything with BBQ sauce, smoked fish, onion rings, pasta & tomato sauce, pizzas & flatbreads

Seven Falls Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
(Wahluke Slope, Washington)

Layered & elegant, showing good balance between fruit & tannins. It is dark & rich, with a velvety texture & bright finish.
