Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
We are counting our blessings and giving thanks to the thousands of firefighters and 1st responders who have worked tirelessly on the ground and from the air to keep us safe during the recent fires. Many families and businesses have been devastated by the fires, and we feel incredibly fortunate to report that our family and friends are safe and that we were able to continue with the 2017 harvest in the midst of the smoke, power outages, evacuations and road closures!
Thank you to those of you who reached out to us with concern! Many of you have asked how you can support the Napa Valley? Come visit! Our hotels, restaurants, stores and wineries need your support so that they may in turn support those most in need in our community.
We will donate 15% of all proceeds from this offering to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund. Place your order for three bottles or more and we will split the shipping costs with you. Use the code FIRE17 by December 8th to take advantage of the shipping discount and help us make a difference to those affected by the fires!
Now, let’s raise a glass and share a virtual toast to the release of our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon! This 100% Cabernet is rich, round and lush, with plenty of earthiness and dark berry flavors and aromas. The 2015 vintage was an early ripening one and you can really taste the fruit in the bottle. While bolder and more structured than prior vintages, the oak, tannins and acidity are perfectly balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for future enjoyment! Aged for 18 months in 45% new French oak barrels, this wine was bottled in late Spring of 2017. We bottled 586 precious cases, a smaller vintage for us.
We can also highly recommend the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, which is bright and lively with abundant pink grapefruit flavors and citrus blossom aromas in the glass! And this will be your LAST CALL for the 2013 Zinfandel. Loaded with bright cherry and ripe plum fruit and a smooth chocolate middle, this wine finishes big and round and the flavors linger on!
As always, I pride myself on making wines that pair amazingly with food (the Raymond's love to eat you know!) and won't break the bank! You can call me, email me or visit the Five Vintners website to place an order or find out more about the wines!
