Because we think the holidays are the nicest time of year to laugh and make merry with friends and family, we are pleased to introduce 11 new award-winning wines to brighten the season's dark, chilly evenings. Five dry whites from the 2018 vintage are featured including four that were aged sur lie in French oak ovals: Gewürztraminer, Muscat Blanc, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The fifth, our barrel-aged Chardonnay Table Wine, is an exceptional bargain at a mere $14.75 per bottle when purchased by the case. Three Gold Medal-winning red wines from the 2017 vintage are also available: two estate-grown Pinot Noirs—Méthode à l'Ancienne and Deep End—and an Old Vine Zinfandel. Two recently disgorged sparkling wines from the 2013 and 2016 vintages are making their grand entrance just in time for the holidays; for a memorable ending to a festive dinner, try the dazzling botrytis-affected 2018 Cluster Select Late Harvest Riesling. Add at least one of the three yummy varietal grape juices to your order so the whole family can celebrate. From now until December 31 enjoy One-Cent ground freight and reduced air freight for all 12-bottle orders, as well as bargain prices on case specials and samplers—but don't dawdle as some wines may sell out quickly.
Happy holidays from our family to yours,
Ted Bennett and Deborah Cahn
