NOW AVAILABLE! Seven of Hearts - Bob Wood Memorial Barrel

#1 Post by zachary l a n g » March 12th, 2013, 5:24 pm

Edited to include the link in Post #1 to make it easy!

My fellow Berserkers,

There have been a number of inquiries via PM to moderators as to establishing a fund to assist Bob Wood's family with the arrangements for his services. We are pleased to announce that a favorite Oregon wine maker, Byron Dooley of Seven of Hearts, has offered up his services. After contacting Byron and discussing with him a few strategies we think this is the one that makes the most sense, provides the best value for Berserkers as well as giving you something to open in Bob's honor when the wine ships in November (unless you make the party at Seven of Hearts in October!). Doug Ackerman will also be involved as will his grapes with the tie between Doug and Byron being introduced to one another by Bob years ago.

One of the reasons Bob loved Seven of Hearts as much as he did was Byron provided wine in the style he enjoyed as well as offering a fantastic value for the wine.

Byron has offered up the wine and his services at his cost with the additional proceeds going to the family to offset any costs they have. That cost is $15.00 per bottle and we think that a price of $35.00 to us is a good price point and allows for roughly $5,000.00 per barrel in contributions to the Wood family.

The wine is currently in barrel and will be going thru bottling in September or October and will be ready for pickup at Seven of Hearts (where Byron and his wife would like to have a party) and for shipping (at a cost that will be passed along to the buyer) in March 2014 (with the pickup party then also). Depending on the size of the group planning on being at the pickup, it will be at either the tasting room or the Armstrong vineyard.

We will have the web page at Seven of Hearts available for order taking on Saturday and will update everyone with that information.

We do know that this will be a select barrel from Armstrong Vineyard, Ribbon Ridge and the 2012 vintage, which is significant to Doug and Byron as it was Bob Wood who introduced the two men which produced the partnership they have today for grape growing and wine making. The clones are yet to be decided and Byron and Doug will update us when that is complete.

We thank Byron and Doug for their contributions and offers to provide all of us with an opportunity to share in Bob's love of wine while at the same time making a donation to his family.

I'd add that this is an effort primarily by Chris Freemott and Zach, so thank you guys for putting this together, as well as Byron and Doug!

Our hope is that we can do one barrel per year in a similar fashion, as a Bob Wood Memorial, and structure it similarly, so that funds continue to be donated to Bob's family, including the grandkids' college fund.

This is a great way to remember Bob- I am in for the wine! I would love to see some special label- at least for the first release!!

Lots of ideas for the label- Cutler, the Beibs, Crocs, Cargo Shorts- I am sure there are a few others!!!

Oh, Yes, there will most definitely be a fitting and honorary name to the blend... Some others that have been bandied about: Duck Juice Blend, Curmudgeon Cuvée (Chris' idea)...

I believe Chris will lead the charge in a vote for the final name to be used...

Byron has a few ideas for the label as well - it will be a Seven of Hearts label with his new Special Reserve look and feel - we'll then amend the bottles with a second label to commemorate Woody. Byron has suggested something that deals with "Duck Juice", a play on Bob's food and wine blog and I'm sure that shortly we'll have other members, just like Jay Carroll did in the post above mine, suggest other names and ideas. I'd expect that to lead to a poll and then allow majority rule - unless of course the guy who is actually making the wine pulls rank (which is fair).

I offered up Curmudgeon Cuvée to Byron in an email to Byron yesterday.

Few notes from the winemaker as an adjustment to the initial post by Zach.

The release of the wine will be March of 2014 to coincide with Bob's passing and depending upon the number of individuals wishing to participate in a 'pick up party', the party will be at Byron's or at Armstrong Vineyards.

Sure seems to me March of 2014 should be a WB-fest/memorial bash in Oregon...

I'm thrilled to see the number of people willing to purchase the wine. I had faith that many of you would wish to honor the old man in such a way. Keep it up, we have at least 24 cases to sell and Byron has assured me that his site will be ready for sales on Saturday - he will then remit the overage funds to Megan at that time. So, while this has the feel of a 'future' understand we wish to make sure Megan and the family have funds available quickly for the items that they may need assistance paying while they family settles his estate.

It's starting to sound like a barrel is not going to be enough.
Plans have been made for this potential concern. Don't let it be one. Byron is well ahead of you. We'd LOVE to sell more than one and more than one is available if necessary.

It's my understanding that the website will be up by Saturday, and they will post it here. Then, we can put in an order. But, I agree, it needs to be allocated in some manner.

If others in the NJ/NYC/CT area would like to go in on a case to divide up after delivery, I'd think that would be a good approach too. Just a thought that might help.
Good idea! I'd go for part of a case (maybe 3 bottles).
So far Peter, it is you, me and Baird. I'm sure others will chime in. If not, I'd do 4 or whatever is needed.

I think OC orders can be routed to Legend Cellars, and check with other offsite cellars who can accept the shipments together, then divide up when the individuals come to collect their bottles.

I think a BerserkerFest in Oregon is a must next March.

This is getting pretty big and heart warming. I have a cool suggestion. Why not bottle it with NO label, and have our own labels printed saying whatever shitty stuff we want on it. There has to be a pretty easy way to come up with suggestions and then getting them designed and printed.

I know very little of the work and costs for doing it, but you'd have to do most of that for the bottles anyway. It would just take printing them on peal off and stick labels. Good idea? Or am I dreaming?

I'm pretty sure a winery cannot sell wine that is not labeled and a label that has been approved.

I've had a couple of wineries ship me wine without labels, but I wouldn't advocate this here, because a winery isn't supposed to sell wine that is not labeled, with approved labels.

This is pretty interesting, though, in cases like this, when consumers are purchasing wine without the benefit of seeing the labels (I presume the labeling laws are intended to protect thw consumer)

How about:

[snort.gif] Anyone know if this is even legal? I already know it is a great idea, but not sure about the legal stuff.

I suppose you could put a very small generic label approved by the ATF and then add your own label on top after it is sold.

It's my understanding that the website will be up by Saturday, and they will post it here. Then, we can put in an order. But, I agree, it needs to be allocated in some manner.

If others in the NJ/NYC/CT area would like to go in on a case to divide up after delivery, I'd think that would be a good approach too. Just a thought that might help.
Good idea! I'd go for part of a case (maybe 3 bottles).
Me too. Three sounds about right.

We could send checks to a designated "buyer" and then collect the bottles after they arrive somehow. Maybe an excuse for a little offline?

Why would we want no label/small label and put our own on? We want a label that matches everybody else's, and that is a memorial to Bob!

You could very easily get all the government warranted info on one small back label, leaving the front blank for any label you would want to put on it -

Why don't we have this as a label, I think Bob would like that.

I was talking about a label that would be ONE label for all bottles. Just a thought, not something I am pushing for, but just throwing it out there because it would seem that what a lot of people might want on the label, would be illegal.

If you're still looking for people to go in a case in the NJ area I'd be up for 1-2 bottles. If you're full no worries.

Still surprised that I can feel this sad and miss someone that I never actually met.

Yeah, we have a PM going on this, but somewhere on the train line in New England/NY/NJ would be great. Lots of good eats through there!

I'm in for some of the wine as well. I would also be in for a Berserkerfest in Oregon the weekend of the wine pickup. Thanks to everyone who is making this special bottling available to honor Bob's memory...well done! [cheers.gif]
