November Special Offer - Aged to its Sweet Spot Syrah for the Fall
It occurred to us that the holidays were the perfect time to say "thank you" to our customers and extend an offer like no other on one of our very favorite :Nota Bene wines. Our 2015 :NB Syrah from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is wildly delicious right now and we are sure a Rhône-style wine of this caliber will be appreciated be all guests at your holiday table. If that's not possible during this pandemic holiday season, how about a gift to extend your well wishes?

New Releases for Harvest Celebration
Last fall Assistant Winemaker Paul Knutzen and I bottled these two very fun pétillant naturel wines using the methode ancestrale process to complete fermentation in bottle to create tiny bubbles. The rosé is a blend of red saignée juice that's Grenache dominant. The white pèt-nat is 88% Viognier and 12% Roussanne all from Dineen Vineyard that was crushed and rested with five days of skin contact before pressing. Both the white and rosé wines were natural un-inoculated fermentations. The pèt-nat bottling Brix targets were zero Brix as the fermentation progressed. The Viognier pèt-nat is the same juice used to make our 2019 Superlio Viognier below. 
We'll also be releasing our 2019 MCM Wine Company Superlio Viognier/Roussanne all sourced from Dineen Vineyard near Zillah. Natural fermentation in neutral French oak barrels after five days of skin contact created rich concentrated notes of melon and tropical fruit followed by a silky finish. It's a soft yet sizable white wine made by someone who appreciates the complexity of red wines.

:Nota Bene to Bordeaux in 2021
Bordeaux has such a deep history as one of the most respected wine producing regions in the world that we can't wait any longer to visit. One trip may not be enough to satisfy our curiosity. We have partnered again with Experi, a local Bainbridge Island company, to build a travel experience that should be an exciting overview of the region. We'll visit four wineries and taste many Bordeaux wines in the course of the trip. Please peruse the itinerary below and let us know if you are interested joining us.
We are raising the urgency of our need to book these dates because excitement about touring Europe in 2021 is increasing and we don't want to miss this opportunity. Please reply if you are interested.
