Due to popular demand (and limited supply) the futures offering of our 2019 Green Valley Estate "Special Premium" Pinot Noir sold out in record time. Those lucky few to secure their share of only 50 cases are part of an elite group that will be amply rewarded in the fall once they take delivery of this incredible wine. It will exceed all expectations, and I will be looking forward to pulling the cork shortly after it arrives myself.
Sooooo... now that harvest is taking off in earnest, the focus shifts to vintage 2021... but, sign up to our newsletter, because somewhere in the not too distant future we will be raiding the cellar, and lined up for our next micro lot of magnificent wine, we will be offering up futures on just 3 barrels of 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet. We put our own unique spin on some rogue fruit from over the range, and turned out something very special indeed. So sign up and watch your email. Once the time arrives we will once again be offering the most exclusive and unique barrel tasting in the entire area.... come on.... where else will your host with the most bring the barrel to you to sample outdoors tableside!!!! Just watching the effort of making this happen is worth the price of admission. Plan to come out to the winery soon, and get in on the ground floor of this special opportunity...... COMING SOON!
Sooooo.... even under challenging circumstances, we have successfully been promoting sales of our "Futures" wine, the 2017 Russian River Zinfandel, and this extremely limited offering will be sold out by Mid May if not before.
Sadly, the romance of Barrel Tasting has been curtailed as we are unable to get up close to the barrels yet, but sampling from the barrel by thieving into a bottle, and then offering it safely as part of our responsible tasting lineup, our visitors have been able to experience this youthful gem in its rough and ready glory.
A brilliant and scintillating up front fruit explosion of classic brambly berry components really grabs your attention, then the transitional tannins kick in and snap back with a beautiful dry effect and a bracing acidity that is very lively on first taste, but with each sip smooths out with a velvety luxury that will mellow with a little patience, or yield submissively to the right food pairing. A Rich and hearty Cassoulet (or an alternate Vegetarian Cassoulet) will instantly transform the personality of this wine from the bold & the beautiful to the smooth & seductive. Or..... a little patience will go a long way, and by Thanksgiving 2021 this Zinfandel will be ready to play with your thanksgiving feast.
This wine is proving to be very popular and is poised to be a huge success, and the option of somewhat customizing the hand labeled collectible is definitely a winner. As mentioned, it will sell out by May. There will be fewer than 50 cases of the Zinfandel released to the world, only available for purchase by the case (or multiple cases) and at a mere $180 per case it is an absolute steal. Once this one sells out and the month of May rolls around, the plan is to go on to full on Barrel Tasting with our next release, so watch your email and watch this space. Precious gems are rare, but they can be had.
Until then...... Cheers!
