Spring brings two great new wines to the McIntyre Tasting Studio, ready to be enjoyed with family and friends: no special occasion needed. First, we have the brand new 2012 Pinot Noir Rosé, a pale as the dawn beauty that captures the essence of fruit picked around Champagne-levels of ripeness, quite tangy and very lively in the glass. Our introductory price is $19.50.
This wine is perfect for warm weather brunches and poolside lunches. It would make any Mom happy on Mother’s Day, along with a dozen roses and some shortbread wine cookies, which we also have available in the Tasting Studio.
Next is the 2006 Estate Reserve Pinot Noir from the Estate vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, which Steve and Kim acquired 25 years ago. This was the very first Pinot Noir made under the McIntyre label, and we’re delighted to have saved some in our library for our special customers. Don’t miss this chance to taste a delicious bit of history, made from our home vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands.
From a cool growing season, followed by a later harvest, the 2006 Estate Pinot exhibits the delicacy and finesse of a cooler season with long hangtime. It oozes aromas of strawberry vine candy and German chocolate cake with raspberry coulis, jumping onto the palate with bright, zingy flavors of red licorice, watermelon candy, lemon bars and racy raspberry twizzlers. This wine would be especially lovely to serve with any festive, celebratory meal, especially where turkey or ham are involved.
Bonus: Just in time for Mother’s Day, or that special graduation gift or an anniversary present they won’t forget, we created a two-pack of this wonderful wine, signed by Steve McIntyre, who was recently named “WineGrower of the Year” by the California Association of WineGrape Growers. Available for just $69, plus shipping and handling, it comes in a beautiful wooden box, perfect for giving. But don’t forget some for yourself!
