Briceland Vineyards Offer: UPDATE IN LAST POST Four 3pks - Mix & Match Build a Case or 6pk

#1 Post by Andrew Morris » January 17th, 2015, 10:28 pm

Fellow Berserkers!

I have held my offer open until THURS at 12N to give people a chance to take a second look and see if they want to add to what is already a bloodbath for your credit cards. Like they say, in for a penny, in for a pound.

Besides, there still might be a few people out there who are just now hearing about Berserkers Day.

Thanks for checking out our offers. I love being part of the Wine Berserkers community and I look forward to hearing your feedback as you taste the wines. The offers reflect around 30% savings from winery retail.

Our winemaking efforts focus on allowing the traits of the individual sites shine through. We strive to make expressive, honest, food-friendly wines that reflect balance and purity of fruit. In other words, as the winemaker, I try to make wines that I also like to drink.

Below these offers find background our winery. Combine two 3 packs shipped at the same time and save $10 more. Combine four 3 packs shipped at the same time and save $20 more. If there is something not listed that you are interested in, let me know by email. I can send you our whole list and we can see what we can work out.

Offer #1 - Pinot 3 Pack:
13 Humboldt Pinot Noir
12 Ronda’s Vineyard Humboldt Pinot Noir (limited availability)
13 Phelps Vineyard Humboldt Pinot Noir
$95 Including Shipping

Our Pinots tend to be on the red-fruited side of the spectrum. We aim to produce well-balanced, site-driven wines expressing depth and finesse. The Ronda’s is a beautiful wine that is ready to drink now, but which should age well a decade from vintage (or more). When the 2012 Ronda’s runs out, we will substitute the 2013 version or another Pinot at your preference.

Offer #2 - Red 3 Pack:
12 Dark Horse Vineyard Mendocino Syrah
13 Humboldt Pinot Noir
12 Dark Horse Vineyard Mendocino Zinfandel
$85 Including Shipping

Dark Horse Vineyard in Mendocino County (directly south of Humboldt) is owned and farmed by the Dolan family, pioneers of the organic and sustainable farming movements. The grapes we source from this vineyard tend to be a bit darker fruited and produces wine with very nice acidity.

Offer #3 - White/Rosé 3 Pack:
13 Humboldt Chardonnay
13 Humboldt Sauvignon Blanc
NV Humboldt Rosé of Pinot Noir
$75 Including Shipping

Our white wines do not see any oak and are aged in stainless steel tanks. We pick based on flavor ripeness and Humboldt weather preserves plenty of acid in our wines. The rosé of Pinot Noir is crisp with just a hint of red fruits.

Offer #4 - Humboldt BDX Pack:
These are sourced from Ishi Pishi Ranch near Orleans in North Eastern Humboldt County.
12 Humboldt Petit Verdot* (Alc. 13.4%)
12 Humboldt Cabernet Sauvignon* (Alc. 12.7%)
12 Humboldt Noir D’Orleans * (Alc. 13.1%)
$105 Including Shipping
* These wines are in barrel and will be bottled and ready to ship by April 15.

The wines offered as part of the Bordeaux package have been in barrel for over two years. I’ve been tempted to bottle earlier, but the flavors just keep improving. This is our first year sourcing these varieties and we could not be happier with the results.

Thanks for checking out our offer and reading about our winery.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers.

Andrew Morris, Winemaker

PS. Anyone looking to visit the scenic Lost Coast or Redwood Parks/Avenue of the Giants, please consider dropping by. We are located about 4 hours north from the Bay Area and we are more than happy to see visitors. I promise to make it worthwhile for any guest that mentions Berserkers.

About Briceland Vineyards

Briceland Vineyards has been producing wine in Southern Humboldt County since 1985. Joe Collins, my step-father who started the winery with my mother Maggie, started researching the viability of planting grapes in our area with a small experimental vineyard in the late 70’s and he is widely credited with establishing commercial wine-growing in our area.

Maggie & Joe built the winery up slowly over 20+ years, gradually increasing production as more local vineyards came online. About 70% of our production is from Humboldt County grapes, almost all of which are farmed organically in tiny hillside vineyards. The remaining 30% is from Mendocino and Lake Counties. We take pride in supporting our local community and our community has supported us as well -- over 90% of our wine sell within 75 miles of the winery without the aid of brokers or distributors.

Briceland Vineyards has long been a proponent of organic farming. All of the grapes used to make the wines offered above have been farmed organically except for a portion of the grapes in the Humboldt Pinot Noir and the Rosé of Pinot Noir. Some of the vineyards that we work with are so small that they no longer maintain the certification, but they continue to farm organically.
__

I haven’t sent our wines to many reviewers because we tend to sell out pretty quickly. The best place to read reviews in on our reviews is on PrinceofPinot.com. I am pleased that we have had wines on the All American Lists each of the last 4 years. All our wines that the Prince has reviewed can be found here: http://www.princeofpinot.com/winery_owner/366/

[thankyou.gif] for your orders so far! I can feel the support from the subscribers!

Corey N. wrote:Andrew -- if you happen to read this can you tell me what grapes are in the Noir D'Orleans?

Cheers!
The Noir D'Orleans is composed of Petite Verdot 30%, Merlot 47%, Cabernet 18%, Malbec 5% and Cab Franc 2%.

As you may know, 30% is A LOT of PV, so there is no way to confuse this with a Merlot.

I did also make a Merlot from the same Ishi Pishi Ranch site in 2012 that is being bottled on the same schedule. I love it, but there are too many wines and Merlot is so UN-COOL that I thought I should not put in my offer.

Hi Peter,

Yes, I have your 6 pk order. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I had the silly idea that I'd be getting work done on labels and compliance reports today. newhere

Is tomorrow in the am a good time to connect on your cc details?

Thanks for giving us a shot. We won't let you down.

Siun,

My pleasure. I am glad the mix and match was good. I was afraid that too many options would make it hard for people.

I am honored that you trust us (and what the nice people here say about us) enough to have Briceland be your first Berserker order. I look forward to your feedback on our Arneis and Rosé of Pinot Noir.

Too many options? The way to beat that conundrum is just to order a bit of almost everything (or at least that's what it felt like as I was cutting and pasting my order into the e-mail). ;)

I'm doubtful Andrew has much wine left after Preview Day (with the Subscribers doing early purchases) but let's give it a try!
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)

All of them. Depending on when each order comes in, some might get 2014 Arneis instead of 13 and/or 2013 Ronda's Vineyard Pinot instead of 12, but other than that stocks are still OK.

FWIW, for anyone who is dithering on what to order I highly recommend grabbing at least the #1 pack while the 2012 Ronda's is available. I've had a lot of Andrew' s wines and the Ronda's Pinot is my favorite and it should get even better with time.

While I haven't had the BDX varieties on offer, I tasted the Merlot from the barrel and the flavors were delicious and pure, so much so that I've been asking him when it would be bottled for the past year and a half (no joke).

I probably should have hit the 2012 Ronda's harder yesterday, but I didn't want to be too greedy and wanted to leave some for others to try. It really is terrific and unlike any other CA pinot I've had.

I am awash in good pinot (not that I doubt Briceland is yet another very good producer), but I'm always on the hunt for good BDX wines at reasonable prices, so I'm in for #4. Plus, I can't resist a rare opportunity to try a petite verdot varietal bottling.

Thanks Andrew.

Mel & I got to taste a few of Andrew's wines while in Humboldt early December. 2013 Phelps PN a clear stand-out, lots of body and fruit so the wine needs some sideways time IMO. Distinctive balance and delicious.

No sparkling packages Andrew?

This wine was a Humboldt visit highlight fo sho!!!

Thanks for your kind words, Glenn.

Of the pinots, the Ronda's has been getting the attention, but the Phelps, like you said, I think will have its own following once people let it sit a bit.

No sparkling package at the moment. I only have the Brut NV now, which I really like. I am a bit worried that the stock I have will hold up until my next batches are ready though. So, no special promo for it, but it can be added to any package if need be.

You tried the Syrah, previously (FWIW, I sent a bottle of the 2009 Syrah to our mutual friend in DC and he pegged it as Northern Rhone). To that end, I should add, that you opened my eyes to the wonders of the Northern Rhone at that same tasting. I'm not sure if I should hug you or curse you.

The next time we get together I will bring a bottle of the 2012 Ronda's -- his first year making wine from this site (Andrew can correct me if I'm wrong) and my favorite wine that he's made to date. It's still young, but delicious now and I'd be interested to get your perspective.

Well, Corey, I do need to correct you. Briceland has followed Ronda's from the start. It was planted in 1983 and named Le Chien Blanc for most of it life, but a few years ago the vineyard changed hands and now named for the lady of the house. Briceland has made all of the wine from that site since the start. It is mainly Pinot, but also some Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. While I sit here, I am sampling the 13 Ronda's PN and it will not disappoint. We are getting red fruit, pine needles, earthiness with bright red color and more acid than tannin.

I hate being wrong, but I blame Ronda for changing the name. Yummy stuff though.

PS
I just looked through my notes and saw that there were all of 78 cases made in 2012. You want to correct me on this too or did I get this one right?

It was planted in 1983 and named Le Chien Blanc for most of it life, but a few years ago the vineyard changed hands and now named for the lady of the house. Briceland has made all of the wine from that site since the start. It is mainly Pinot, but also some Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. While I sit here, I am sampling the 13 Ronda's PN and it will not disappoint. We are getting red fruit, pine needles, earthiness with bright red color and more acid than tannin.
I hate being wrong, but I blame Ronda for changing the name. Yummy stuff though.

PS
I just looked through my notes and saw that there were all of 78 cases made in 2012. You want to correct me on this too or did I get this one right?
Yes, Corey,

you are right champagne.gif

2012 was 78 cases. 2013 is 98.

Thanks very much for all of your support in the form of orders and positive comments about our wine. I know there are still a few of you out there that are still thinking... What I need is more wine! So, feel free to reach out. My offers are open until Thursday 12N. Tomorrow I rack, Thursday, I bottle. So, I will be completing orders with people on Friday and Saturday.

Thanks again to Todd and the crew and everyone who made Berserkers Day happen. Nicely done!

Thanks for all of your support. In case anyone still wants to join in, There are 5 more hours to do so.

I have held my offer open until THURS at 12N to give people a chance to take a second look and see if they want to add to what is already a bloodbath for your credit cards. Like they say, in for a penny, in for a pound.

Briceland Vineyards Offer: UPDATE Four 3pks - Mix & Match Build a Case or 6pk

Hey!

Thanks again to everyone who supported us during BDay - Awesome!

For those that have not yet received your wine, I'm sorry for the delay. I had gotten a bit buried with bottling and now at the end of that run I have managed a blood clot (DVT) in my leg, Needless to say, it is messing with my work schedule.

I rigged my computer to work with my TV so I can type with my leg up, thus this email. I will be getting back on my feet soon and also getting more help to make sure everything goes out before it gets too hot. Which I know is soon.

Thanks again for your interest in our wines and for your patience.

Cheers!

Goodness! Take it slow and keep that leg up! Hope you are allowed to sip some good wine while healing!

I still owe you my new work address for shipping later on - we keep changing our office move date but should have that nailed down this week.
