Under The Wire Winter Release Save The Date

#1 Post by mattcitrang » January 16th, 2019, 10:41 am

one of my favorites - and right before BD10

Email read -

"We wanted to let you know that we will be releasing the first of the 2015 Under The Wire wines this coming Tuesday, 1/22/2019.

This release will include Pinots and Chardonnays from the two original Under The Wire vineyards, Alder Springs and Brosseau, along with a tiny amount of what might be the most unique sparkling wine produced in California from old vines: Oakville Farmhouse."

Cheers!
Chris and Morgan

I was feeling FOMO for a moment, then discovered it in my spam box. Looking forward to this, though timing with all the other releases is brutal.

Weird...it’s in my spam folder as well. Did Morgan claim his wines offer natural male enhancement or something?

So excited about this one - their sparklers have been a major favorite this year. (or should I not mention that since they say only a little bit available?)

Correct me if I’m wrong but it looks like maybe more than one offering this year from Under the Wire. Last offers were in late spring.

I'd say 100%. I know it was last year, and I doubt they were able to make much more of it.

Last year, I think they had a total of 200 bottles of the Oakville Farmhouse. From their release letter, it sounded like they had less in subsequent years.

Don't underestimate their sparkling zin!

The entire line up is pretty great!

What is man, when you come to think upon him, but a minutely set, ingenious machine for turning, with infinite artfulness, the fine red wine of Shiraz into urine?

Fyi, the release is delayed 1 day (just got the email).

Didnt want Brian Tuite to freak out and think I was stealing all of his Oakville Farmhouse before he could place his order ;)

Hey Rich - I guess only half joking. neener I completely forgot that I had one of those Farmhouse! I left the oakville at my offsite and brought the rest of the order home. We drank through all six with what it seems like just a few weeks.

Ha! Sounds good, that was probably a great call....although I'd definitely give you bonus points if you popped a farmhouse and reported back :)

Side note....since Jonathan somehow got 2 bottles of the Farmhouse, I'd say hes almost obligated to open one and post a note. Whadya say Jonathan?? ;)
