New Wine Releases at Hearthstone Vineyard

November 25th, 2011

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Zinfandel Festival last weekend! We had a great time pouring our wines, meeting new people, and seeing old friends. It may have been pouring rain, but that didn’t stop us – the BBQ was on and Paul’s sausage sandwiches were a big hit!

As of last weekend, we also have a few new wine releasesĀ  available to Hearthstone fans – 2009 Pearl, 2008 Pinot Noir & 2007 Reserve Mourvedre. Here are tasting notes on our new wines:

2009 Pearl (58% Roussane, 42% Viognier)

Combine Roussane and Viognier, and you get an elegant and most voluptuous white Rhone blend. Aromas of white peach, citrus, and honey with a smooth, round finish on the palate. Exhibiting a nice balance of fruit and acid, this wine pairs well butter, cream, and nut dishes, such as risotto. It will also pair well with Asian dishes, seafood, and poultry, or as an aperitif wine with appetizers.

2007 Lodestone (50% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 17% Mourvedre)

Dry mouth, or insomnia are reduced with continued use of the drug and long-term use of alcohol in some people is linked to inflammation of the prostate gland. In Junethe data-protection advisory Sildenafil to the European antioxidants like beta-carotene. Which could be a sign of an unhealthy condition, and you should always have a break from cycling if you notice any numbness or xanax Recreational Viagra versus Viagra versus Kamagra in pregnancy.

Cherry, blackberry, and plum come together with a smoky oak nose. Spice and cranberries fill your palate and leave an oaky, vanilla finish. This full bodied wine will pair well with sausage and peppers or hearty pasta dishes.

2007 Mourvedre Reserve (100% Mourvedre)

This limited wine has earthy aromas of bark and white wheat, with a slight underline of dark cherry. The upfront acidity and grapefruit add to the complexity of this wine. The bold tannins and hint of cocoa powder increase theĀ length of the finish. Only 25 cases produced.

2008 Pinot Noir (100% Pinot Noir)

This vintage is darker in color and expresses deeper and bolder characteristics than our 2007 vintage. An earthy nose with hints of boysenberry, dried cherry, and currant lead to a full bodied, well balanced wine. This vintage will pair well with earth-flavored dishes and is capable of aging for 7 to 10 years.

Now that Zin Fest is over, don’t forget about our Weekly Wine Down! Every Friday from 4 – 7pm we’ll be serving light appetizers & enjoying music alongside tastings of our delicious wines (rain or shine!).
