The Spring 2017 Wine Club Selection is here!

It was an extended, rainy winter in wine country, leaving the hills green, lush and flourishing. Northern California has officially recovered from the five-year drought, we now welcome the signs of spring popping out to greet us. The wild plum trees that are common to the Sonoma Valley have magnificently bloomed and the vines will soon wake from their winter dormancy. Although Mother Nature hasn’t completely made up her mind if winter is over, we put together a peace offering of our favorite Deerfield wines for some spring motivation. Your Spring Wine Club Selection is an exciting one, containing many brand-new releases of the spectacular wines from the 2012 vintage, including the new kind on the block – The 2012 Malbec Cuvée.


From the Deerfield Family to yours, Happy Renewals!     

Cheers,

Bridget Waldele
Wine Club Ambassador

2014 White Rex
Sonoma County

One Bottle

40% Pinot Grigio, 35% White Riesling, 16% Sauvignon Blanc, 9% Chardonnay

Winemaking is like cooking. The best dishes are a combination of flavors, of subtle nuances spread around the palate. White Rex follows this lead, each varietal playing an important role in the overall experience. Pinot Grigio is the base and brings the bouquet and flavor of white peaches and focus in the mid-palate. The Riesling brings Granny Smith apples and focus in the back-side palate. The Sauvignon Blanc adds tropical fruit flavors, particularly pineapple and mangos and focuses on the front palate. The Chardonnay adds a long finish, depth and complexity, from the center of your palate around the sides to the back.

2012 Malbec Cuvée
Sonoma Valley

One Bottle

Cuvée means “wine blend” in French. This Malbec Cuvée is has flavors of dark blackberries, mocha, and dark chocolate, surrounded by a bouquet of spice and with hints of cherries, vanilla and cedar. The oak influence is subdued. The focus is on the fruit. Deep and full bodied, it is complex, and perfectly balanced on the palate and exhibited great structure and length. Thanks to 3 ½ years of aging in the barrel, it has soft tannins and is ready to drink now and can be laid down for several years. It pairs well with beef stew, hamburgers and desserts with blackberries.

Inner Circle 2009 Cabernet Franc
Kennybook Vineyard
Sonoma Valley

One Bottle

Janos Glück’s vineyard is in a tight little valley called Kennybrook in Kenwood, Sonoma Valley. Its hillside type terroir produces very small grapes with thick skins, giving the wine more flavor, tannin and structure. Cabernet Franc focuses on the top of the palate, like dark chocolate, giving the wine a chocolate nuance. We added a touch of Cabernet to add mid-palate flavor and a longer finish. We aged it almost 4 years in mostly French oak and now it’s been in the bottle for three years. The 2009 vintage produced great red wines and this one is now in its prime.

2012 Estate Syrah
Sonoma Valley

One Bottle

A True Expression of Terroir

This Syrah is from the organic vineyard in front of the winery.  Syrah’s flavor profile generally focuses near the bottom of the palate, grounded and earthy. This one is different.  It shows generous dark berry flavors in the center of the palate, expanding in all directions.
