Hi everyone! I hope that you have been well. Sorry I did not post last week, but I was in Chicago for my little brother's wedding! It was a great weekend. On Thursday night, my mom and dad had planned a cocktail party to celebrate the happy couple. They did an awesome job (even though Dad's speech was like 45 minutes long) because they were so thoughtful in all the details. They really made the party about his roots, her roots, and then the roots that they are going to put down as a family in Chicago. My parents are just the best. And then on Friday there was a little rehearsal (and some Bloody Mary's) on the rooftop of my brother's gym, then we went to the Cub's game where they won in the 10th inning, that was followed up by a pizza party for all the Greeks and additional family that came from out of town. Saturday was the main event. Zack, Steph and her family did a great job with planning. The ceremony was personal, the food was great, the Tito's was flowing, and the band was playing all the great dancing songs. Two of my guy cousins were my brother's best men - they gave a great speech that made everyone laugh and cry. Her dad's speech made everyone tear up. My brother and his bride have never looked happier. Matt and I flew back on Sunday morning...11:45AM was still too early for a flight that day... Great weekend.
On Monday, it was back to work (though I was a little tired...) and we started thinking about what to send out for wine club. What to send....what to send? We came up with quite a treat for all, I think you will agree.
Our Signature Mixed Club will be receiving a bottle of our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, a bottle of our 2013 Merlot, and a bottle of our 2013 Reserve Merlot. "But Ali, how is the Signature Mixed Club getting a discount on a reserve wine?"...is probably what you are thinking right now. Well, I will tell you why. It's because we make our own rules here at Karamoor and we thought it would be cool for you to be able to taste our 2013 Merlot and 2013 Reserve Merlot to see what the differences are. We are so nice!
Our Signature Red Club will be receiving a bottle of our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, a bottle of our 2013 Merlot, and....you guessed it: a bottle of our 2013 Reserve Merlot. I like this shipment a lot because you are getting all Merlot. In totally different forms.
Our Reserve Club is going to be receiving a bottle of our 2014 Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon, a bottle of our 2013 Reserve Merlot, and a bottle of our 2010 Meritage from our private library stock. Here is what Kevin and Shaina wrote about the 2010 Meritage this week when they tasted it (they get to have all the fun): A long, warm growing season made the 2010 vintage one of the best in Southeastern PA to ever come around, and the Karamoor Estate Meritage was no exception…Aromas of ripe, sweet plums and black cherries are shared on the palate along with dark berry, vanilla, and currant flavors. Velvety tannins structure the wine leading to a long, soft finale… Quite the wordsmiths, aren't they!
If you are interested in receiving any of the shipments above, it is not too late! Sign up for the club of your choice here: http://www.karamoorwines.com/Wine-Clubs. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. I plan on doing nothing. Except for taking my mom out to dinner for her birthday at this cool place that opened recently in Plumsteadville (Devil's Half Acre). It is so good. And they have Owowcow ice cream there!!!!! Until next time....
