EMH - Black Cat Vineyards - a 3 hour tour!!! (Offer closed)

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h » January 27th, 2013, 9:27 am

I'm already behind in posting...and my coffee's cold! Lots of notes here on Merrill's wines...so do a quick search and find some, and post here if you like as well!

3 hour offer - 9am - noon Pacific.

$125/2-pack or $180/3-pack of EMH Black Cat 2009. Web price is normally $75/bottle Quantities limited, while the supply lasts. Orders should be placed directly at http://www.emhvineyards.com – look for the BerserkerDay Special.
Shipping in March/April, weather dependent. All terms and conditions stated on EMH’s website apply – including charging of sales tax and shipping.

Please be sure to review your order, submit it, and you will get an “order successful!” message when you do so. You will also receive an auto-generated confirmation of your order immediately upon placing it.

THREE HOURS ONLY! Email me at Merrill@emhvineyards.com with any questions, issues, or problems. I’ll be here!
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

Steve - the 2011 Special Selection will be offered as a future - probably goes out to the mailing list in March (just a short waiting list for the Special Selection - if you want to be on it, please email me). The "regular" 2011 Black Cat will not be offered until August. So if you want to spend your money now, I'll take it! [cheers.gif]

You should be receiving an auto-generated confirmation from my system. One person just found theirs in their junk folder. If you have any doubts as to whether your order is in and confirmed, first check your junk, then email me if it is missing. I can send you a copy from here.

Yes - check your spam folder. I ordered last night and was wondering if it went through. Checked my Spam folder this morning and the confirmation had been sitting the the whole time.

Yeah, it would be hard to know where to draw a line, so I keep it at BerserkerDay hours. Otherwise, I might find myself refunding people money they spent months ago!

Yes! I take my mailing list directly from the year's previous orders for the first wave. Then move from there. There will be plenty of 2011 - I picked before the rain and so did not experience the issues that some other vineyards did.

Got it - thank you! I'm almost keeping up real-time with it this year, although my office has now spread into my dining room. My Black Cat (Sparkles) usually sleeps on the corner of my desk, but she got up and left in a huff. Guess all the activity was too much for her!

That 2010 is a blast right now - glad you liked it, too. It is available on the website, but so far everyone is going just for the 2009 BerserkerDay pricing.

The 2009's production level was higher than the 2010, which is why I had some to offer for this Special.

Anyone who hasn't yet tried Merrill's wines should be all over this offer. The '09 is a really beautiful wine.

Thanks, Andy. This one was picked at only 24 Brix, which I think contributes to the elegance. All French oak barreling, but only about 30% new. I feel I made some good decisions on the making of this wine - more new oak would have been a mistake on that delicate fruit.

Learned this from previous BerserkerDay offers: If you believe you have ordered some of these 2009s and did not receive an auto-generated confirmation of your order, please email me so we can get that straightened out. Again, look in your spam - a couple of people found their confirmations in there.
