Willamette

Introducing our 2012 Pinot Noir!

Hello friends of Labor Wines!  Hope that each and every one of you are enjoying some gorgeous Spring time weather and getting ready for the official start of Summer.  It’s been a busy time for us at Labor Wines, with the changing seasons, travels, end of school and a new wine!

Yes ladies & gentlemen, the time has come for the release of our 2012 Pinot Noir.  The 2012 harvest was outstanding!  The vintage had warmer than average temperatures and an extremely dry Summer and Fall, resulting in ripe and ready wines that are bursting out of the bottle and ready for your glass to enjoy!  Our wine is growing each and every day, but at last tasting had delicious flavors of Marionberries, Currants, Blackberries, Strawberries, Crushed Violets and touch of Ginger.  Being that it was a warm year, we recommend putting a slight chill on the Pinot Noir and letting it come up to your desired temperature.

We will be releasing this wine in the coming weeks, so please let me know if I can put a case on hold for you and get it shipped out before the Summer Heat Wave!  Looking forward to speaking with each and every one of you soon.

Warm regards,

 

Corey

Spring has sprung: Two new wines!

Hello to you all!

 

We hope you are getting in the Spring spirit, and perhaps our news will help warm you up and think of sunshine and enjoying a bottle of wine or two!  We wanted to let you know that the newest wines from Labor Wines are now being released!  We are extremely excited for these and can’t wait to have you taste them.

 

We’d like to introduce our 2011 Pinot Noir (3rd vintage) and a first, our 2012 Riesling.

 

The 2011 Pinot Noir is the result of a very interesting vintage where it was extremely cool for almost all of the year, until the last month of harvest when the sun came out and temperatures were extremely moderate right before harvest, allowing a true integration of sugar and acid, resulting in a very balanced wine.  On the nose you have a slight smoke and spice box, with red fruits and touch of creaminess with the integration of French oak and the juice, the true hallmark of our Pinot Noir.  For this year’s Pinot Noir we produced 405 cases and are really happy with our steady growth as a winery.

 

Our 2012 Riesling is the second white we have made and this year we wanted to change it up a touch.  The fruit we were able to source comes from vines between 35-38 years old, all from vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton and Chehalem Mountain AVA’s, 100% stainless steel fermented and has been made in a dry style.  This wine has dried apricots on the nose and a touch of pears; as it warms up the Riesling takes on a viscousness with fruit, acid and sugar extremely well balanced.  This is an extremely small production wine, with only 112 cases made.

 

The Pinot Noir is available for $25.00 a bottle/$300.00 a case and the Riesling is $18.00 a bottle/$216.00 a case, both plus shipping.  If you would like to get your hands on these wines, feel free to reach out to us via the website, email (Corey@LaborWines.com) or via phone, (855.503.9463).

 

As well, we are currently in the process of planning our Spring schedule for visits around the country.  It’s looking like we are going to have a few wine dinners/events happening, starting with Las Vegas (May and June) and possibly New York City in June as well.  Be on the lookout for us to visit Colorado with a potential Arizona trip too.  If you’d like us to come to your city or have any ideas, drop us a line on our Facebook page or via Twitter and we’ll try to make it happen.

 

We look forward to catching up with each and every one of you soon and if you’re interested in some wine from the great state of Oregon, we can definitely make this happen!

 

Talk soon, all the best.

 

Cheers,

Corey

Our Pinot Noir on Stage!

 

Well friends, a few days ago we were notified that a wine writer and reviewer in Memphis, TennesseeFrederic Koppel of BiggerThanYourHead.net, had a chance to sample our Pinot Noirs from the 2009 & 2010 vintages.  Knowing that we have distribution in his city and Memphis has an educated wine population and culture, we were very curious to hear what he had to say.  Let me tell you, his review was fantastic!

 

I’ve attached a link to his post on the wines here, but to give you a brief idea, on the 2009 he says,

 

“In the mouth, the wine is a finely shaped amalgam of lightly sanded woody spices, dusty graphite, elusive tannins and clean, vibrant acidity, all working in concord with delicately spiced and macerated black and red fruit flavors. The finish is well-knit, sinewy, spicy.”

 

On the 2010, he notes,

 

“The ’10 is a bit spicier than the ’09, but it maintains, at all costs, a spirit of spareness and elegance that makes it easy to drink for its winsome fruity qualities yet demanding for its dry, rigorous character.”

 

 

As well, Mr. Koeppel rated both wines “excellent!”  This is something that we are thrilled to share with each of you and a very happy day for us at Labor Wines as well.  Stay tuned for the upcoming Spring release of our 2011 Pinot Noir and a cool surprise on the white wine front as well!

 

 

If you have a story, pictures enjoying Labor or would like to place an order, feel free and share 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.

 

 

Cheers,

Corey

LABOR WINES

Birthed in 2010, entrepreneurs Dick Oppenheimer and Corey T. Nyman partnered to launch Labor Wines, a boutique Oregon winery.  Starting with a 2009 Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, Labor Wines began with only 280 cases in its initial production.  Oppenheimer and Nyman continued the growth in 2012 introducing a 2011 Pinot Blanc and 2010 Pinot Noir while furthering the business and expanding both the quantity of wine and distribution.  With a sincere passion for wine and hard work, Oppenheimer and Nyman decided upon the name Labor Wines from their belief that “Everything takes Labor to accomplish.  Without Labor, there would be no end result and no satisfaction.  Labor is the driving force throughout history of how to get things done.  From Labor is the idea that hard work presents rewards and what better way to embrace that vision – from our hands to yours.”  Labor is distributed in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas as well as available for direct sales in over 30 states.  For more information visit, www.laborwines.com

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.
