January Barrel Tasting

This month we enjoyed a perfect afternoon at the vineyard with our wine club members.  We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather or company.  We wanted to give everyone a sample of our upcoming 2012 vintages that we will be bottling in April.

Upon arrival our guests were greeted with a glass of our award winning viogner and appetizers. This was a perfect way to toast to the weather as the wine was so refreshing and crisp.

As our guests continued to arrive we began sampling our 2012 Grenache which has been sitting on american oak.  The big blue fruits that are coming out in this wine have given it a lot of depth thus far. Second in line was our Cab Sauv which has an incredible peppery finish. Our payaso, which is our blend of syrah and grenache is coming along nicely too it is incredibly smooth on the palate.

Our Barbera has so much spice it was reminding everyone of the holiday season and baking. Lastly we sampled our Syrah, it is proving itself to be quite the bold wine this year and might just be bigger then the Barbera. We can't wait to see how these wine's taste when they are finished.

Everyone enjoyed soaking up the sun, the views and of course the wine! As the sun began to set on lake melones our members basked in the view. We enjoyed having everyone out and showing off our upcoming wines. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as we enjoyed having you. We look forward to many more events this year!
