Dear Club Members,
Hurrah, hurrah! Harvest season has arrived and underneath Mendocino County's still warm, perfect grape-ripening weather, there's a sense of the cool autumn and winter holidays to come. Al White, our director of viticulture, takes us through a typical day during this season and forecasts an excellent vintage (below).
Our selections this shipment—like a favorite cardigan or scarf—are all great transitional 'pieces.' In the 2010 Filigreen Pinot Noir delicate herb garden scents give nuance and depth to flavors of sun-warmed wild berries. Our 2010 Zinfandel cozily pairs with sumptuous meats and full-bodied stews. Stock Up & Savor for the bounteous transition time we call Fall!
