Karamoor Estate

Who's excited to hear about some new Karamoor products?

Halloween and daylight savings happens this weekend.  The fall daylight savings is not nearly as bad as spring (where you lose an hour of sleep!), but it means that the days get dark at like 5PM.  Does/did it really help farmers all that much?  I just don't really get the point of daylight savings.  At least this year we are lucky to have an extra hour of sleep on the day after Halloween...which will really help with productivity on Sunday...  I am going to a Halloween party on Saturday night, and I am dressing up as a monkey.  Hopefully my friends do not read this blog, or I will have ruined the big reveal.  It's one of those fluffy costumes.  Like a 1 piece pajama set but with monkey parts attached to it.  I don't think Mom would be proud of this costume.  She used to make all of our costumes by hand when we were kids.  This was ordered off of Amazon.  The homemade costumes were awesome!  One year, I was Glenda the Good Witch of the North, one year I was Raggedy Ann, one year I was Cruella Deville...the list goes on.  Not one of the parts of those costumes came from a plastic pouch from the store.  Every year, after Halloween comes and goes, I make a promise to myself that "next year will be the year where I make my own costume, and it is going to be awesome!".  Maybe 2016.  ...

So, as the title of this blog post leads you to believe, we have indeed released some new products.  Just in time for the holidays!  I will list these items one at a time, so that I may draw out the suspense.  The first product that I want to tell you about is actually Karamoor's first PRODUCT (not wine).  It is an electronic gift card!  They are so easy too.  All you have to do is choose the amount, enter the payment information, decide if you want to send the gift directly to the person or print it out to wrap it up, and voila!  Done.  Redeeming it couldn't be easier either.  At the point of check out, just enter the code that is sent in the email, and the amount due will be updated to reflect what was applied from the card.  Simple simple.  

In addition to the gift card, we released some of our new vintages!  These wines will be available on our website (through the winery) only and will not be available to our resturant or wholesale accounts for a few months.  You will find 3 new wines on the website.  The first is our 2014 Chardonnay.  The 2014 Chardonnay is really very nice.  It is crisp and lively with a nice mouth feel and a touch of oak.  The full tasting notes on it can be found here:  

We also released the 2013 Meritage and the 2013 Cabernet Franc.  The Meritage is velvety.  When we were doing the tasting notes, all I could keep saying was "it's like velvet!"...but like, well-structured velvet with nice tannins.  It obviously has some other really great characteristics, like a nose of dark fruit and dusty leather.  Full tasting notes can be found here:  The Cabernet Franc is delicious as always.  You get a nose full of bing cherry and black trumpet mushroom which leads to flavors that are dominated by black cherry.  Those full tasting notes can be found here:

We are gearing up for what we anticipate to be a busy holiday season!  I will be at the Flourtown liquor store this evening from 4-6PM with their wine specialist, Marianne.  If you have been looking for a good time to sample some Karamoor wines, wait no longer, this is it!  Hopefully you are not busy and I will get to meet you tonight.  If you can't make it, I hope that you all have a safe and happy Halloween!  Until next time...
