At long last, our Waits-Mast 2007 Pinot Noir wines, from Wentzel and La Encantada vineyards, are in the bottle. It was a family affair as Jennifer, our daughter and I rose early for an 8am Saturday morning start (we’re not really morning people around here.) After some searching for our corks, we got going with the Wentzel and then the La Encantada. We each had a taste of the wines before they got some sulfur and were bottled. Unfortunately, our labels are not ready, so we’ll have to come back to label the bottles in a few weeks. The wine at this stage often has bottle shock, so we will not be releasing the wines until November anyway. For tasting notes, see our previous post, below.
Our two-year old toasted with her own “wine” and entertained the cellar rats at Crushpad with her interpretive dancing. It was gratifying to finish this process and realize that our first official launch of legally-available for sale wine is just around the corner. Yikes! We’re working on updating our website and will have a webstore up soon, so stay posted. Until then, keep an eye out for updates on events and other news from Waits-Mast.
