Meanwhile, back in the ‘hood, binNotes returns from her misadventures to tout-worthy Zero One Vinters, new-kid-on-the-Kirkland-waterfront with an understated yet assured tone and beguiling pours that unfurl on the tongue like Cleopatra before Mark Antony. And their tasting space rivals any Bilbao architect’s design – manned by Derek, the super-friendly and preternaturally knowledgeable wine assistant. Good stuff, and affordable.
