It took a little while for summer to kick in on the east coast this year. But with the 4th of July now behind us, it is safe to say that summer wine season—with its refreshing whites, crisp rosés and grill-friendly reds—is definitively here across the entire US.
For our Summer 2017 wine club shipment, we’ve put together a great selection of wines that not only highlight some of our new additions, but also get you ready for the lazy summer days and family gatherings to come in the months ahead.
With all of our club shipments, we try to highlight at least one new wine across all three membership packages. And for this shipment we’ve chosen to highlight the new vintage of our Lot 75 Reserve Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley, California. For those of you who are familiar with Lot 75, you know that it is one of the best values in our portfolio. It truly over-delivers. And the 2016 vintage of this wine, we think, takes that value to the next level. Our club members are amongst the very first to get this wine.
Try it with grilled chicken or a BBQ-smoked salmon!
Also featured across all three wine clubs is our new vintage of Lot 116 Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine comes from the Red Hills AVA in Northern California’s Lake County, which lies just north of Napa. This appellation is increasingly being looked at as one of the next great wine regions. Cabernet Sauvignon does exceedingly well in Red Hills, and our Lot 116 Cabernet is a great example of the quality that can be achieved in this region at an everyday price point.
Try this Cab with a juicy steak or BBQ hamburger!
Other highlights across our summer wine clubs include our new 2013 vintage of Barolo and our Magic Door Sauvignon Blanc from Oakville, Napa Valley. The new 2013 vintage of Barolo is easily the best Barolo we’ve bottled to date, and the Magic Door Sauvignon Blanc is the very first white wine we’ve bottled under our boutique Magic Door label. We think both wines are outstanding.
For those of you who are currently in our wine club, we hope you enjoy this selection! And for those of you who have not yet joined, we hope you will consider doing so. This summer shipment is a great example of the diversity of wines you can be getting from our club on a quarterly basis.
