New Release Wines!

 

It’s time for some wine!  After selling out of our first vintage (2009 Pinot Noir) extremely quickly, to which we can’t thank each and every one of you enough, we are thrilled to announce the release of TWO wines – both from the Willamette Valley.  Our first white wine, the 2011 Pinot Blanc, is now ready for you to taste and try, and our 2010 Pinot Noir, has just been labeled and is jumping out of the bottle!

 

The Pinot Blanc is a bright, flavorful white – indicative of the vintage, with great balanced acids and flavors of lemon and Granny Smith apple, along with litchi and Asian pear.  All of the fruit comes from the Yamhill Carlton and Chehalem Mountains AVA’s and we believe that this varietal is a natural pairing for its sibling, Pinot Noir, and flavor-wise is a great complement.   The Pinot Blanc is a great wine to pair with any type of cuisine as it is extremely versatile, especially Asian flavors as it cuts through the spice or just to sip while on your patio in the backyard.  This wine is available to you at $16.00 a bottle, $192.00 a case, plus shipping.

 

Our Pinot Noir is an extremely balanced wine from the 2010 harvest, with lower sugars and structured acid.  The nose has a slight smokiness to it with red and dark fruits coming through the palate, finishing with some chocolate and plum.  Serve with oysters, roast chicken and halibut, or just have a glass with friends.  The Pinot Noir is $25.00 a bottle, $300.00 a case plus shipping.

 

The wines are now available for you to purchase and can be shipped starting on Tuesday, April 8th.  Feel free to email, call or contact me directly so I can get your order together for you!

 

As always, thank you for your support and friendship during our journey of Labor Wines.  Also, we’d love to hear from you – please share your experiences, pictures and adventures with us on Facebook or via Twitter.  As well, you can always email me directly, Corey@LaborWines.com or call on cell, 702.466.0987.

New wines!

 

Hello friends! I hope that everyone is shaking off the Winter blues and that you can feel Spring coming right around the corner.  Here at Labor Wines we are excited to tell you about our newest releases and yet another first!

 

This week our 2011 Pinot Blanc is going into the bottle!  This is going to be the first white wine from Labor and we’re only producing 112 cases.  We wanted to keep it small for the first vintage and really focus upon the quality for each of you to enjoy.  For those of you unfamiliar with Pinot Blanc, it is an Alsatian grape varietal that, in Oregon, is best known as a balanced wine with good acid, straight forward as a pairing for the table or by the glass.  The vineyards we sourced from are all located in the Willamette Valley, coming from the Yamhill Carlton District and Chehalem Mountains AVA’s.  We are hoping to release the wine at the beginning of April and it is going to go quick, so make sure you reserve your case today!

 

Additionally, the 2nd vintage of our Pinot Noir, the 2010, is being labeled at the beginning of April and will be ready mid-April/beginning of May for you to enjoy.  This wine comes from a smaller harvest with lower yields than 2009, showing more red fruit qualities with higher acids and lower sugars.  While ready to drink right away, this is a vintage that will last for years to come and will welcome time in the cellar, if you’d like.  Everyone I have spoken with in Oregon is excited for this vintage, since at the beginning the year started out extremely cool and then gave way to a gorgeous harvest.  We are very happy to be able to share our 2010 with you – for those who haven’t tasted Labor Wines just yet, get ready!

 

Don’t forget, when you are enjoying a bottle of our wine, make sure to take a picture and share it with us on Facebook or via Twitter.  As well, you can always email me directly, Corey@LaborWines.com or call on cell, 702.466.0987.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill – Las Vegas

I am very happy to announce that the first restaurant in Las Vegas to purchase Labor Wines is Blue Ribbon Sushi & Grill at The Cosmopolitan!  They started carrying the wine yesterday and now you will be able to sip on a glass or enjoy a bottle of our 2009 Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.

Blue Ribbon is one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas, not only courtesy of their impeccable food quality and varied selection, but from the people there who provide amazing service in a relaxing environment.  Every time I’m there, I feel like I’m back in New York City (this being a good thing), which also makes me feel like I’m at home.

When you enjoy a taste of our 2009 Pinot Noir, expect flavors of Black Cherry with slight spice notes from the 1st and 2nd year barrels.  Cocoa powder is coming through on the finish currently and a balanced mouth feel.

If you’re curious to learn about where else Labor is going to be served in Las Vegas or interested in purchasing our wines directly feel free to contact me via email, Corey@LaborWines.com or on my cell, 702.466.0987, plus you can always reach us via TwitterFacebook.
