The Summer Wine Club Release will be available for club member pick-up (or shipped, depending on your instructions) beginning the weekend of July 20/21. For this weekend, we will be serving tasty bites specially chosen to pair with these wines.
We have been out of Zinfandel for awhile and of Malbec for even longer, so this Wine Club release brings two very popular varietals back to our wine offerings. Each wine showcases an interesting oak treatment, with both American and French oak adding complexity to the generous Zinfandel fruit, and with French oak contributing intriguing roasted coffee bean notes to the Malbec aroma, while yielding center stage to the bright fruit flavors. Both wines won multiple medals at recent competitions.
Wines in the Spring Release:
2011 ZINFANDEL (Sierra Foothills):
After extensive oak trials, both American and French oak were selected to season the generous dark cherry and blackberry fruit aroma with subtle notes of coffee and vanilla, all carrying seamlessly into the taste. There is a silky middle mixed with light tannins extending the berry and oak character through to a clean, slightly peppery lingering finish. The friendly tannins would lead to pairing with some BBQ ribs or perhaps with duck, or just by its smooth self !
Retail Price: $26 (750ml).
2011 Malbec (Alta Mesa):
This wine has a lovely, deep burgundy red color and a subtle raspberry aroma laced with roasted coffee bean accents from the French oak. Intense, velvety, seamless texture, from the rich beginning to the lingering bright fruit finish. Try it with herb roasted chicken or veal marsala.
Retail Price: $19 (750ml).
Your credit card will be charged for the 20% discounted price plus applicable taxes, shipping and packaging. The cost for pickup at the winery, include local sales tax is $37.88. For our out-of-town members, unless you tell us otherwise, the wines will be shipped according to your prior directions.
Don’t forget one of your Member Benefits: Bring along your friends and out of town visitors to Solune and they will receive your Wine Club Discount on their purchases.
We are open year-round every weekend from 12 to 5.
