December 2009 Release
Holiday Wine Club Release
2006 Tempranillo & 2005 Titan X
Dear Wine Club Member:
Our Holiday Wine Club Release will be ready for pick-up starting on Saturday, Dec. 12th. This date coincides with the second Saturday of our Holiday Open House.
Here's more on the wines:
We could not wait any longer to share this Gold medal winner with our wine club members. In a slightly different style than the 2005 Tempranillo released earlier this year, the 2006 is displaying more restrained oak and, reflecting differences in the growing season, a bit more fruit and boldness. This wine also perpetuates a hallmark of our Tempranillos, namely, great flexibility in food pairing.
Gold Medal at the El Dorado County Fair and Silver Medal at the 2009 California State Fair.
Retail: $24 (wine club release price $19.20).
2005 Titan X (70% Cabernet Franc & 30% Tempranillo):
In the tradition of not releasing any wine before its time, we decided to bottle-age this red blend long enough for the rough edges to fade away and for the components to integrate. Not surprising, since the two component varietals also benefited from some bottle aging on their own for their single varietal releases. Of all our Titan blends, this one will be the most suitable for cellaring, although it is very approachable right now.
Retail: $18 (wine club release price $14.40).
Note that both of the above wines will be sold exclusively to wine club members until the next wine club release in February.
Your credit card will be charged for the 20% discounted price plus applicable taxes, shipping and packaging. The cost for pickup at the winery, including local sales tax is $36.41. For our out-of-town members, unless you tell us otherwise, the wines will be shipped according to your prior directions and total cost will include local tax & shipping rates.
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 rate on their purchases. We are open every weekend from 12 to 5.
Hope to see you on December 12th !
A Votre Santé
Andrea & Jacques
