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: First in the line-up is the tantalizing 2014 Ghost Ranch Pinot Noir, the perfect food-pairing wine. Followed by the fruity, yet bold, 2012 Phantom Ranch Pinot Noir; the ultimate Cabernet drinkers Pinot. Next is the bold and beautiful 2011 Flat Rock Malbec; the first release of this Club Member favorite. Additionally, we are releasing the rich and savory 2013 Flat Rock Malbec, which continues to impress us with its solid structure and enticing fruit forward palate. Fifth in the line-up is Madeleine's all-time favorite wine, the 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. With lingering notes of vanilla, this is one of our library gems. Last, but not least, the 2013 Mast Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is making its much anticipated debut after receiving 92 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
