It’s time for the Wine Snob* Fall 2023 Release, and we have some exciting things in store!
We have three new wines to share! The first is our 2022 Kühlbird, a sparkling brut nature Gewürztraminer made using the traditional Champagne method, with no dosage. Think tropical and floral aromas of lychee, rose, and orange blossom, with flavors like tangerine, spicy ginger, and a touch of honey floating on a cloud of soft, bubbly mousse.
The second is our 2021 Carménère! The name of the Carménère grape is derived from the French word “carmin,” which means crimson, and that shows through in its lingering crimson aromas and flavors, like raspberry and cherry, with hints of peppercorn, vanilla, and granite. There aren’t many Carménère vines in California, but we found a single row tucked into a beautiful vineyard in Glen Ellen. And lucky you, we’re in the mood to share!
And the third is the 2020 Puma-1! Puma-1, or P1, was the first mountain lion tracked in the North Bay by Audubon Canyon Ranch’s mountain lion research and education project, Living with Lions. This rich, smooth Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with notes of mixed berries, baking spices, and cedar, is a celebration of P1’s long reign as Glen Ellen’s feline matriarch.
You’re invited to try the new releases at the Release Party and enjoy a special presentation by Living with Lions! We’ll have three seatings:
