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 have selected a delectable assortment of red wine for your April shipment: From the depths of our cellar, we are re-releasing the 2010 Mast Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2010 vintage is drinking beautifully right now and it doesn't hurt that this wine received 91 points from Wine Spectator. The 2013 Ghost Ranch Pinot Noir is a true palate pleaser and pairs nicely with almost any dish. The 2012 Flat Rock Malbec is a small production wine, and after selling through 103 cases in a six-month period, we held back under thirty cases just for you. The 2013 Jillian's Blend makes for a great food-pairing or stand-alone wine. Following, is the 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine continues to impress us as it develops in the bottle. Last, but not least, the 2013 Flat Rock Cabernet Sauvignon is making its much anticipated debut after receiving 94 points from Robert Parker.

As always, we are more than happy to fully customize your shipment. Tuesday, April 25th is the last day to kindly do so. The wine club will be processed on April 26th and shipped out on May 1st. Once the order is processed it cannot be cancelled or customized.

   
 

2010 Mast Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

Retail: $84.00 / Wine Club: $67.20

91 Points by Wine Spectator

Notes: Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, fresh herbs, and caramel. Grippy tannins and mouthwatering acidity are complemented by tart berries, currants, and subtle hints of eucalyptus and tea leaf. The pronounced flavors and aromas are completed with a pleasantly long finish.

   
 

2013 Ghost Ranch Pinot Noir

Retail: $48.00 / Wine Club: $38.40

Notes: This Pinot Noir is bright ruby red in appearance and complemented by a pronounced fragrance of rose petals, cherries, and toasted brioche. Light in body with bright acidity, the palate resembles rhubarb and raspberry, while the mid-tones and finish are analogous of prune tree sap and truffle honey.

   
 

2012 Flat Rock Malbec

Retail: $70.00 / Wine Club: $56.00

Notes: The dark and inky magenta hue paves the way for developing aromas of ripe blueberries, rich molasses, cedar wood, and pipe tobacco. This full-bodied wine has lively acidity, followed by supple tannins and layering flavors of charred wood, white pepper, and marzipan on the mid-palate, which are complemented by deeper tones of caramelized plum and black fruit along with a velvety finish.

   
 

2013 Jillian's Blend

Retail: $48.00 / Wine Club: $38.40

Notes: A sweet nose of butterscotch leads to a tornado of flavor, including homemade blackberry pie, liquorice, and eucalyptus. A very lively and spice filled finish leaves a lingering finish of baking spices, coffee and pipe tobacco. With a rich body and moderate tannins this will be a show stopper for years to come.

   
 

2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Retail: $62.00 / Wine Club: $49.60

Notes: The deep crimson appearance offers a rich bouquet of ripe strawberry, cranberry, roasted coffee bean, and brown sugar. Leathery tannins are balanced with bright notes of juicy red cherry, fresh tobacco, and tea leaf on the palate. A pleasing finish of cedar and dark fruit lingers.

   
 

2013 Flat Rock Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

Retail: $90.00 / Wine Club: $72.00

94 Points by Robert Parker

Notes: Bold violet-red color introduces a captivating bouquet of blueberries, tea leaf, and
vanilla. This full-bodied wine has flavors of cassis, hazelnut and briary undertones with fresh acidity and chewy tannins on the palate.
