A Message To You …

Delivering a Fantastic Wine to Kick Off Fall.

Wines from the 2012 vintage in Oregon, arguably the best vintage ever in the Willamette, are coming in fast and furiously. The Two Messengers Pinot from Maison L’Envoyé is the one wine I’ve been going back to the well for most often. For good reason too: it doesn’t hurt too bad to pop a bottle at 24 bucks and it tastes dang awesome.

With it’s approachable grace, velvety tannins coupled to a bold Black Cherry, this is a wine that will be a solid winner all the way through the Fall and into the Winter ahead – and really, for a good 6 to 8 years in the future.

We’ve got just a few cases of this wine in-stock and those that we have are going to get snatched up pretty quickly.

92 Points – Wine Specator: “Crisp, focused and expressive, broadening out on the finish into a panoply of gorgeous black fruit, with meaty and spicy notes that sing in harmony as the finish lingers deftly.”

* – Hyberbole aside: the 2012 vintage in Oregon is shaping up to be stellar. Almost all the wines I’ve tasted thus far have far exceeded any expectations I’ve had. I did just read an article on the vintage that called it a 100 Point Vintage… that might be going too far but buy as much of the 2012’s as you can. You won’t be dissappointed.

The France Mega Class!

France.

The most dynamic country in the world when it comes to wine and, by and large, the World’s leader in making wines – it’s also one of the hardest countries to get a firm grasp of it’s wines since there are so many varied regions and histories.

This Mega Class aims to help you understand France, it’s wines, it’s histories, and it’s peoples better through 12 classes over the next 6 months. We will break the country into 10 regions and tackle them one-at-a-time giving us plenty of time to discuss and taste through 8-10 wines per session – this is roughly the same amount of classroom time that I got when I got my Sommelier Certificate and I think this series is gonna be way more fun!

Each Class is $50.00 per attendee.
The cost for the Entire Series is $500.00 per person.
Contact Sunfish Cellars Here for information on Purchasing the Whole Series.
The class sized is capped at 12 for each session.
