|Dear Club Members,Well, it seems that another summer has come and gone! We hope you enjoyed it, had some adventures, and made some good memories!The good news this time of year is that our summer shipping holds are over! The weather is finally cooling off enough to resume your club shipments! Club Members will receive their summer shipment in September and their fall shipment in November. In these shipments, you will be the first to receive our newest releases:
Kagan Cellars 2009 Sangiovese, White Hawk Vineyard, Santa Barbara County – This wine exhibits the best of a true Sangiovese! Our Sangiovese opens softly with flavors of red currant and cranberry and builds in depth and intensity. The wine rounds out well across the midpalate with earthy notes of dark, red fruit. It finishes with a beautiful combination of acid and fine-grain tannin that bring the wine home to the terrior of the White Hawk Vineyard. With exquisite balance and body, this wine is an elegant expression of Sangiovese.
Kagan Cellars 2010 Syrah, White Hawk Vineyard, Santa Barbara County – This is our most lucious, complex wine yet! Our newest Syrah maintains the signature jamminess of our 2008 effort, providing a lush palate with intense dark fruit flavors. Aging in multiple French oak barrels imparts a toastiness that gives the impression of sweet vanilla in the background. Notes of pepper, earth, and minerals coupled with the well-rounded tannins give the wine a long and anchored finish. This is a perfect wine to enjoy in the fall or winter, but will also age well into 2014.
We hope you will enjoy our newest releases and will continue to enjoy all of the Kagan Cellars offerings! Also, please check out our website to see what we’ve been up to since last spring and follow our progress as we head into the 2012 harvest!
As always, we thank you for joining us on this wine adventure!
All the Best,
Emily and Mark
