Flash sale – Wine Fundraiser

As our way to support our frontline health care professionals, we produced a small batch bottling of a 2019 white wine. The price of each bottle is a flat $20.00 where 100% of the sale will be donated to the Evergreen Health Foundation for COVID-19 Critical Needs. Furthermore, for every dollar raised 425Cellars will MATCH IT!!
 The wine is a blend of Marsanne, Viognier, Rousanne which we are calling “Evergreen”. The grapes have a lot of body and weight with unique flavors and just the right amount of acidity. Evergreen is a refreshing wine with significant body which is unique for this type of blend. This wine has bright fruit with flavors such as Melon & Cantaloupe and has allot of mouthfeel to it! I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

2019 – Evergreen $ 18.18 + tax = $20.00

Only 80 bottles left so let’s see how quick we can sell out and support a great cause!

Honing it from its roots in Rioja, Spain, Tempranillo have divulged its roots deep in Washington! A big and bold wine, that to the nose, nuances of red and black fruits are prominent.

Aged for a minimum of 3 years with 1 in barrel, this Tino Fino (Tempranillo in Spain) is matured to perfection!

The high and picturesque vineyards of Argentina have always been an inspiration to us, and we vowed to make a Malbec that emulates such beauty and elegance!

Defending its double Gold Medal, this Albarino shows to be everything just as wonderful and elegant this year as well!

2019 Rose’ of Tempranillo (100% Tempranillo) – Rattlesnake Hills AVA.

On the palate the wine is full of fresh fruit flavors with a crisp refreshing finish.  We are all waiting for spring to arrive, and it cannot come soon enough. In the meantime our rose is a great stand in! Fresh scents of tropical fruit aromas, dragonfruit, and white pepper. Distinguished notes of cherries, red currants, and strawberries make this wine incredibly refreshing and well suited for all seasons!

2018 Syrah (100% Syrah) – Red Mountain AVA.
We all have our perception of what we taste and feel when we hear the benevolent word, Syrah. We assure you, that this is nothing like you are accustomed to! Our aim was to create a a Syrah that would go lovely with food, but yet soft and approachable enough to just relax and have a glass! Aromas lush blackberry, currant, smoke, cigar box and a touch of chocolate, with tastes of dried black fruits, spices and baking dark chocolate.

Foods to Pair: Smoked or barbequed meats

2018 Albarino receives Double Gold from SIP Northwest

We are so excited to have received a Double Gold for our 2018 Albarino (page 46 in the 2019 awards issue).
As written up in the magazine…”We’re lucky to have plenty of fresh West Coast seafood available on our doorstep year-round, because that’s more opportunity to pour this zippy and fresh white with abandon. This is a master class in Albarino, offering salty sea air and white flowers on the nose, plenty of citrus fruit on the palate and searing acidity making it oh-so more-ish”

Your Favorite European-Style Winery

My wife and I raised our children, work and play in the 425 area code; located in the suburbs east of Seattle. Our 425 community has shaped who we are today. In celebration of this, we honor the various cities and landmarks in the 425 area code. We hope you enjoy our wine and experience the richness of friends and family while making lasting memories.

We are not trying to imitate wines from other regions, but instead, look for grape varietals from award winning Washington vineyards that result in wines which could not be made anywhere else.

Our winemaking goal is to produce European style wines that highlight Washington state’s fruit. The wines are lower in alcohol, higher in acidity and made to enjoy with foods.

So pack in a few bottles and enjoy at a BBQ, hiking, going on a bike ride, hanging out at the lake or enjoying with friends and family.

Cheers!
