Happy New Year, Laird Club Members!

We hope this February wine club shipment helps you ease into 2017 and warms your soul during these last few weeks of winter. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, love is in the air, and the Laird team is excited to share a combination of new releases and vintage wines. We are more than happy to fully customize your shipment. Tuesday, February 14th is the last day to kindly do so. The wine club will be processed on the 15th. Once the order is processed it cannot be cancelled or customized.
We have chosen a delightful assortment of red wine for your Pyramid Preferred February Shipment. We are re-releasing the 2008 Jillian's Blend (92 points by Wine Enthusiast) from our wine library, which requires no cellaring because we've already done that for you. The 2013 Phantom Ranch Pinot Noir is what we call "The Cab-Drinker's Pinot" or "Pinot's Bigger Older Brother." This is a wine that pairs nicely with pizza, cioppino, or any other of your favorite Italian dishes. On the other end of the spectrum we are offering the big, bold "bad-to-the-bone" 2011 Flat Rock Ranch Malbec, which pairs perfectly with skirt steak and chimichurri. The 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90 points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and sourced from two of our favorite vineyards, Mast Ranch and Flat Rock Ranch. It's rich in fruit notes and has a well-balanced structure. The 2011 Flat Rock Cabernet Sauvignon (96 points & cellar selection by Wine Enthusiast) is a real treat. With its silky, smooth tannins and luscious blue fruit notes, you might have a difficult time trying not to finish the entire bottle by yourself. Finally, a wine club exclusive, the 2014 Suscol Ranch Syrah is one that you will want to grab before it hits the market because this is a wine that barely makes it six months in inventory before it sells out.
