Finally, Petit Verdot
Yes, it's true! We are finally releasing the long-awaited Petit Verdot. Many of you know we've wanted to bottle a stand-alone PV every year, but it blends so darn well with the Cabernet that there has never been enough. Then along came the miraculous 2013 vintage. Incredible quality combined with a larger yield from the vineyard meant we could finally bottle our beloved Petit Verdot. It is a bold, deeply luscious wine that still features the typical Boeschen Vineyards integrated tannins and silky palate. We will release this beautiful wine to our Wine Club members on September 9th. At only 75 cases produced, the 2013 Estate PV will sell out immediately, so be sure to change your account allocation requests if you would like your share.
Best of Class Carrera
Remember that Estate Cabernet that recently took the Double-Gold award in the top category at the San Francisco Chronicle's 2016 Wine Competition? Well, the critics didn't forget the Carrera Estate Blend. We just learned the Carrera won the Best of Class Award in the 2016 Los Angeles International Wine Competition (from over 3,000 wines from 995 wineries). Structured and soft, elegant and intense, the 2013 Carrera is a wonderful representation from a vintage that will go down as one of Napa's best. This wine will also be shipped out September 9th. All shipments are now delivered via temperature-controlled trucks, but we will delay deliveries to the warmest southern states to ensure safe arrival.
Ten Years of Winemaking
Many of you know we are celebrating ten years of winemaking this year. Wine Club members who haven't RSVP'd to the celebration event on Saturday, September 17th should be sure to respond by September 1st to reserve their spot (send email to firstname.lastname@example.org), as space is very strictly limited. If nothing else, our year-long celebration is a perfect excuse to visit the estate and see our growth over the last decade. We would be glad to have the chance to thank you for your support in this continuing adventure.
