Social Media Club officially launched a monthly wine club and have been working closely with our friends at VinTank and VineCrowd to present a monthly selection from some of the top wineries in California, with the plan to expand to wineries across the United States.
We’re extending our Social Media Club members exclusive discounts on these wines, with even deeper discounts available to our Professional, Small Business and Corporate members.
VineCrowd has given us access to boutique wineries that pride themselves on small batches of quality wines, of which you wouldn’t be able to find at your local wine shop.
This month, our Wine Club offer is from Waxwing, the brainchild of Scott Sisemore who has been called a ‘winemaker extraordinare’ by Food & Beverage World:
Scott Sisemore isn’t your typical winemaker. In 2006, after 17 years of working in the industry for well know wineries like Ravenswood and Rosenblum Cellars, he walked away to take care of his newborn son, but he also started his own ultra-small label – Waxwing Wine. Scott’s 2008 vintage is only 80 cases, so if you’d like to taste what truly handcrafted wine is like, don’t wait too long.
About the wine:
2009 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
The 2009 vintage Pinot Noir is a two-vineyard blend: 61% Toboni Vineyard and 39% Flocchini Vineyard. Blending helped achieve a superbly balanced and focused wine. The color is dark red and purple. It exhibits earthy-fruity aromatics with a touch of oak. Medium bodied and bursting with delicious cranberry and cherry flavors, it pairs well with salmon, roasted chicken and smoked meats. Bottled after fourteen months in one year old French oak barrels. Production: 82 cases.
2009 Syrah, Flocchini Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
Our second vintage of the Flocchini Syrah is a beautiful wine. Dark red and purple-colored it is aromatically complex with coffee, toast, smoke and roasted meat notes layered on a dark fruit core. In the mouth the wine has lots of texture and lots of flavor. A full spectrum of soft tannin envelopes and the finish is supported by firm acidity. Flavors of bacon, maple syrup, dark chocolate, cherries and toast round out a full bodied, supremely balanced wine. Production: 80 cases.
We are extending our Social Media Club Open members a discount of 15% on our August Wine Club offer, one bottle of Waxwing Pinot Noir + one bottle of Syrah. Social Media Club Professional members receive even deeper discounts on our monthly Wine Club deals.
