In 2024, with a renewed focus on the environment, our tasting this week will showcase wines from Browne Family Vineyards. This distinguished Washington wine brand has collaborated with the environmental non-profit One Tree Planted to introduce the Browne Forest Project. Every purchase of Browne Forest Project wine contributes to the planting of a tree, actively participating in the restoration of forests in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
The Browne Forest Project, crafted by Browne Family Vineyards, not only offers consumers wines of exceptional quality but also takes a proactive stance in supporting local reforestation initiatives. Amidst recent challenges faced by winemaking regions, particularly the Pacific Northwest grappling with issues like flooding and forest fires, this initiative provides consumers with a meaningful way to make a positive impact. By partnering with local reforestation organizations, One Tree Planted streamlines the process of giving back, fostering benefits for nature, communities, and wildlife.
Browne Family Vineyards 2022 Sauvignon Blanc
Presents a captivating tasting experience. It opens with citrus-driven aromas, featuring notes of lime and lemon blossom. The palate reveals a delightful interplay of flavors, including wet stone, key lime pie, and gooseberry. A subtle viscosity, imparted by neutral barrels, adds depth to the wine, culminating in a clean finish characterized by savory herbs, lemon, and key lime notes. This Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent companion for shellfish, particularly oysters and clams, accentuating the overall enjoyment of this finely crafted wine.
Browne Family Vineyards Grenache Rosé
A delightful creation that boasts a pale pink hue. Its aromatic profile is rich with notes of cranberry and watermelon, while the palate offers a refreshing medley of freshly picked strawberries and cling peaches. The wine is characterized by bright and well-balanced acidity, making it an ideal choice for savoring on its own or as a complement to salads and cheese plates. Enjoy the harmonious blend of flavors in this Grenache Rosé from Browne Family Vineyards.
Browne Family Vineyards Pinot Noir
Captivates the senses with its aromatic symphony, featuring red fruit, cran-raspberry, black fruit, and candied violets. The palate unfolds with a juicy and fruit-forward entrance, transitioning into a round and lively middle showcasing ripe huckleberries and dark fruit, complemented by a subtle hint of jasmine. Silky soft and lingering tannins contribute to the wine's balanced and enduring finish, creating a truly satisfying tasting experience.
Browne Family Vineyards 2020 Forrest Floor Cabernet Sauvignon
A wine that not only brings delightful flavors but also contributes to tree planting. With each bottle purchased, a tree will find its place. Beyond its environmental impact, the wine delights the senses with aromas of blueberry sorbet, lemongrass, lavender, and chalk. Fine-grained tannins and lively acidity provide a backdrop to the rich interplay of blackberry and black pepper flavors, creating a wine experience that goes beyond the glass.
