Thanksgiving 2006 Release
Dear Wine Club Member:
With the growing season, harvest and crushing/pressing now behind us, we have had time to catch up on bottling. The result ? The very first Wine Club Release. This release will be ready for you to pick up during the Thanksgiving Holiday, beginning on Thanksgiving Day from 1 to 4 pm, and continuing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 5 pm.
This offering includes two new releases we are very excited about:
• 2004 Titan II (Sierra Foothills) - Red table blend of Petite Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo - all great wines on their own, but combined in a synergistic manner in this full-flavored "assemblage". The intense nose is dominated by mixed berry aromas (strawberry from Tempranillo and blueberry from Petite Sirah), with a hint of cinnamon (from Tempranillo) and white pepper (from Cabernet Franc). The dark color announces generous fruit extraction and full body in the mouth. Firm but friendly tannins from the Petite Sirah and a well balanced and lingering finish also characterize this wine. A worthy successor to Titan I, in the same full-flavored and friendly tradition.
Retail: $17 (750 ml)
• 2003 Syrah (Sierra Foothills) - This wine is from the same grape source as the very smooth '04 Syrah already released. It benefits from an additional year of "élevage" and is intensified by the addition of 10% Petite Sirah. On the nose, cherry and raspberry dominate, with hints of vanilla and black pepper. A burst of the same berries take over in the mouth, leading to a long and well-balanced finish. Although this wine is ready to drink now, it will benefit from further bottle "vieillissement", in the same way its younger brother is developing.
Note: Pre-released to Wine Club members only until the '04 Syrah is sold out.
Retail: $19 (750 ml)
The cost of the wine club offering reflects a 20% discount from retail price. The total charge of $27.20 plus tax and shipping (if applicable) will be processed via the credit card information you have provided. If you have not provided us with credit card authorization, we will complete the transaction when you pick up your wine.
Hope to see you soon!
A Votre Santé
