Library Wines-A Tasty Trip Down Memory Lane

Post by Jessika Hane, HR Director

On Wednesday, a few of us gathered in the lab to commence what has become an annual pre-holiday tradition: tasting wines for our “library release.”

Every year, we pull a few (okay, a bunch) of wines from our library and evaluate them to determine which ones are ready for a re-release. We are looking for wines that have aged gracefully and taste great. Wines that you can share with loved ones at your holiday table or tuck into your cellar for next year.

And, it’s a lot of fun! Take a look at some pictures from this year’s tasting.

Our winemaking team (Bill, John and Dennis) begin the tasting.

Lots of bottles of wine to taste!

Amber, Drew, Pam, Melanie, Bill and John carefully consider our choices.

Kathleen Oliver enjoys her taste of 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon. (I'm busy in the background taking my job a little too seriously)

This is towards the end of the tasting. We were having a really good time!

We picked some excellent library wines this year and they go on sale today!

Here is just a peak, more info about the wines can be found on our website.
2001 Cabernet Sauvignon: $40
2002 Cabernet Sauvignon: $40
2006 Cabernet Sauvignon: $60
Creekbend Pinot Grigio 2007: $30
Creekbend Chambourcin 2008: $30
Shiraz Reserve 2003: $35

Starting this weekend, we will also be offering a tasting flight of three of these wines (Shiraz Reserve, Chambourcin and the ’02 Cabernet) for a small fee.

I hope you can stop by soon to stock up on these special wines!
