What We're Drinking

 

So why is the 2012 Ladera Cabernet—made from almost entirely from Howell Mountain fruit, from an incredible vintage—sitting pretty at $34.99? I honestly can't tell you. Maybe it's because no one knows how good the Ladera holdings in Howell Mountain are. Or maybe it's the pride that winemaker Jade Barrett takes in making a serious wine for a reasonable price. Or maybe it's because Ladera is an overlooked gem in a sea of Napa alternatives. For whatever the reason, I'm not going to complain. We tasted the 2012 vintage at our staff training yesterday and I was just floored by the quality of this wine. Dark, fleshy fruit cloaked in fine tannins, bits of earth, and in total balance, with enough gusto to go the long haul in your cellar. It's a whole lotta wine for $34.99, and it's made primarily from Howell Mountain grapes, harvested during a great vintage.

Glenmorangie's Dr. Bill Lumsden in Redwood City Thursday!

Glenmorangie

We are THRILLED to have Dr. William (Bill) Lumsden of Glenmorangie in the Redwood City tasting bar on Thursday 2/20/14 from 5pm-6:30pm, pouring a selection of Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch. 

In his role as Head of Distilling & Whisky Creation, Dr. Lumsden oversees the creation of the entire Glenmorangie range. He is regarded as a pioneer in the malt whisky industry, touring the world in search of the best oak casks in which the Glenmorangie whiskies will be given their unique characteristics. He is also the only person to have been honoured three times with The Malt Advocate 'Industry Leader of the Year' Award.

This tasting is walk-in only, and is FREE.  

This is an insane opportunity! Come out and meet Bill yourself! See you there!
