We just finished bottling all 4,000 cases of R&B Cellars wine & are now awaiting what 2011 has to bring us…whew! And yes, a bit of bottling line delirium set in, but now we can reap the reward of wonderful new releases.
Wines and vintages just bottled are 2010: Saxy Syrah, Serenade in Blanc Sauvignon Blanc & Swingsville Zinfandel. Also bottled 2009 vintages: Zydeco Zin, Minunet in Merlot & Pizzicato Petite Sirah. We saved the best for last; our 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is stellar! So much great wine to look forward to!
And if you got ants in your pants and can’t wait to try some of these new fall bottlings, we’ve teamed up with Angela’s Bistro in Alameda for a “New Release” Winemaker Dinner. Join us Sunday, September 18 (5-8pm) for an amazing 5-course meal paired with 8 of our brand spanking new wines.
