Happy Spring, Laird Club Members!

We hope this April wine club shipment helps you welcome the sunshine. Here at Laird Family Estate, the Red Hen Chardonnay is in full bud break while the Cabernet is right on its heels. We are more than happy to fully customize your shipment. Tuesday, April 26th is the last day to kindly do so. If you are a will-call member, your selection will be ready to pick up on April 22nd.
   
   
We have chosen a broad wine assortment for your April shipment, ranging from bright to bold flavor profiles and instant palate pleasers: Perfect for a daytime refresher or a beautiful start to a nice evening, the 2015 Big Ranch Sauvignon Blanc is a true show stopper; so much so that we're sending you 2 to help you stock up on whites for the warmer weather. Next in the shipment, fruity yet bold, the 2012 Phantom Ranch Pinot Noir is the ultimate Cabernet drinkers Pinot. Following is the tantalizing 2014 Ghost Ranch Pinot Noir, the perfect food pairing wine. Fourth in the line-up is our rich and savory 2013 Flat Rock Malbec. This wine continues to impress us with its velvety soft texture and enticing fruit forward palate. Last, but not least, the 2013 Mast Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is making its much anticipated debut after receiving 92 points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
   
 

(2) 2015 Big Ranch Sauvignon Blanc, Oak Knoll District

Notes: Translucent lemon color and enticing floridity shine: elderflower, jasmine, Kefir lime, honeydew, and Asian pear delight on entry.

2013 Flat Rock Ranch Malbec, Yountville
