From Dave Butner's keyboard to your screen - Kaella Winery

Often the most expensive day for a Wine Berserker, whereby the deals from wineries and retailers fill the forum and make your credit cards scream for mercy...

From Dave Butner's keyboard to your screen - Kaella Winery

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h » January 27th, 2013, 10:14 am

So that Dave stops emailing me every 12 seconds, I'll post his offer! [snort.gif] (kidding! It's only like twice a day, but...)


Kaella Winery

Greetings,

I am happy to have a special offer for BerserkerDay IV and hope to introduce fellow Wineberserkers to the wines of Kaella Winery.

We are offering 3 Packs of our wines, on sale for this event at 20% discount, plus free shipping.

The wines being offered are our 3 newly released red wines from the 2010 Vintage. We have made available 3 packs of each wine, plus a mixed 3 pack that includes 1 of each.

2010 Meritage, Conner Lee Vineyard, Columbia Valley - $72/3 pack
2010 Sangiovese, Ciel du Cheval, Red Mountain - $60/3 pack
2010 Syrah, Ciel du Cheval, Red Mountain - $84/3 pack
2010 Mixed 3 pack, 1 each. - $72

Special 3 Packs can be purchased online directly from our website. Click on the Purchase link at: http://www.kaellawinery.com

About the vintage

2010 was a challenging vintage that began causing winemakers and growers considerable concern, but ended up leaving us very pleased.

A cooler than normal Spring was how the season started, and that trend continued into early Summer. Ripening was slow, yet steady. Temperatures in all areas of Washington growing regions were well below normal.
Finally, a greatly welcomed Indian Summer came along in late September through October which helped grapes achieve ripening, although later than normal.

In the end, the worry and concerns were gone as the prolonged growing season resulted in longer hang time and great flavor development on the vines.

About the Wines

Our 2010 Meritage is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, all from Conner Lee Vineyard in Othello, Washington. This wine is already winning awards. It made a sneak-peek public debut last week, ahead of our official release at Wine World’s Cabernet Classic event
and judges awarded it 3rd Place winner in the Red Blend category. This
wine delivers intoxicating aromas of raspberry, dark red cherry and milk chocolate. On the palate it has great balance with fine rounded tannins
and leaves you with a pleasant smooth finish. 75 cases produced. 20
months barrel aging, 100% used French oak. $30

For all you Syrah lovers out there, you are going to enjoy our 2010 Syrah, from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard on Red Mountain. We once again co-fermented with 3% whole cluster Viognier and with this vintage we also included about 10% of whole cluster Syrah. This is a big bold Syrah, with a seductive nose of dark violet floral notes that the Viognier brings, along with big meaty, dark plum and smoky spicy goodness of the Syrah. It is plush and full on the palate with rich elements of dark fruits and a supple yet
powerful structure. 20 months barrel aging, 100% used French oak 75
cases produced. $35

Our 2010 Sangiovese, from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard on Red Mountain. This special wine was done in an unusual style. I’ve always enjoyed trying unique wines and that has carried over into my winemaking style, where I like to experiment with different techniques in the winery. What I did with this wine is that after pressing our Rosé, I took the pressed skins and added them back into the bins of the Sangiovese. So what took place was a ‘double skin’ fermentation, similar to the Italian ‘Ripasso’ sytle.
The daily punchdowns were difficult, but the results turned out to be worth it. What resulted is a wine with massive structure, depth and complexity.
The color alone is astonishing, quite deep and dark. The wine is full of dark red fruit that explodes from the glass with additional aromatics of pepper and spice. There is a great backbone of tannin, and tremendous acidity, which are the hallmarks of a wine with great aging potential. 75 cases produced. 20 months barrel aging, 100% used French oak $25

Cheers!

Dave's a great guy who just happens to make some good juice too. I would be all over this if I didn't already have a case of the wines! Can't wait for the 2012 rosé to come out.
Still a mystery how he got this picture here but there's not a better one to have http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ros%C3%A9

Mixed 3 pack sounds great. I'm really interested in trying the Sangiovese. Are we out of luck getting this wine shipped to Texas?

Did Anyone mention that Kaella was featured in the Seattle Times Sunday wine section, as a Critic's choice this week from our local writer Paul Greggutt?

I stopped by Dave's insanely busy tasting room to pick up my Berserker Pack yesterday. Dave proved to be a very gracious host and we tasted through his lineup including a preview of his not yet released 2012 rosé which I like even better then the 2011. We enjoyed the entire lineup and will definitely be back.

Great to meet Berserkers Brian and Mark who stopped in to pick up wines and taste. Thanks a ton! I'm going to check weather early next week in hopes of getting out the remainder of the orders, unless we've communicated otherwise. I'll be in touch.

My favorite boutique winery in the northwest. Cab Franc rocks as do all his reds, ask Dave about his groovy wax caps on those Cab Franc beauties. [cheers.gif]

Cheers.....
