“The discovery of a wine is of greater moment than the discovery of a constellation. The universe is too full of stars.”
― Benjamin Franklin, circa 1700s
The wine club wines are here and are ready for you to pick them up. We decided to take this wine club and devote it in support of the Southern California Wine Business. As such, all three wines this quarter are from Santa Barbara County. You can go online and view a video of each selection but here they are in a nutshell:
Our white wine selection this time is the 2018 Foxen Chenin Blanc-this wine scored 94 points from Vinous and 91 points from Wine Enthusiast and Jeb Dunnick. We have never selected a Chenin Blanc for wine club and we think you will like the choice.
The first red is the 2018 Stolpman La Cuadrilla Red Blend. This blend of Syrah, Sangiovese and Grenache from Ballard Canyon is a real showstopper and scored 92 points from Wine Enthusiast, 91 points from Vinous and 90 points from Cellar Tracker.
The second red is the 2017 Westerly Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has been initially released exclusively in S. California to Barnoa from Westerly. Some of you may be familiar with Westerly and you should expect a similar high-quality Cabernet. This scored 93 points with Wine Enthusiast.
We will have special pricing available on these wines if you are interested after tasting them.
You can drop by anytime to pick them up. If you want to call for curbside, please do and we will run them out to you. Or if you want to try them on the patio, we will provide you with a flight of the three and 10% off your food order for you and a guest if you dine while you try them.
We wish we could be sharing them with you during a regular pick-up event but the circumstances will not allow that at this point.
We hope you enjoy the wines and help support both Barnoa and the S. California wine industry.
Please let us know if you have any questions! Sending us your selections ahead of time isn't necessary, but please feel welcome to do so if you wish!
Have a great evening. See you soon!
