Winter 2019 Cellar Circle Selections
Cool winter temperatures have arrived bringing hearty soups and stews to the table, lazy evenings by the fire and casual gatherings with family and friends. Our winter Cellar Circle wines are perfect for a cozy night in and highlight the best of 2016’s reds. The vintage was marked by a fast start to the growing season. Warm spring temperatures resulted in an early bud break. Temperatures continued to climb steadily into early summer then cooled slightly to slow growing conditions perfectly throughout July and August. Fall temperatures were moderate, easing the ripening pace just enough to extend hang time, develop full flavors in the grapes, and yield delicious wines that are both powerful and refined with purity of flavor and balanced acidity.
Platinum members will take home four limited release reds, all fine examples of the vintage: the 2016 Novelty Hill Stillwater Creek Vineyard Grenache, 2016 Januik Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Syrah, 2016 Januik Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and 2016 Andrew Januik Lady Hawk.
Gold and Silver Red-only members will enjoy the 2016 Januik Weinbau Vineyard Cabernet Franc and 2016 Novelty Hill Stillwater Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Classic members will receive the new released 2017 Januik Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay and the 2016 Novelty Hill Stillwater Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
In short, something for everyone. Stay warm out there, friends!
