And inside was this.
Way back in October, Jim and I went to our second Buyer's Club Weekend at Hillebrand Estates Winery. It's a special annual event held for wine club members. We got to taste (and purchase if so desired) some of the goodies from their library, but the highlight was the pre-release sampling day. At this special event, we got to taste a selection of the new stuff. Some of the wines we tasted were straight from the tank or barrel and were not ready to be even bottled. It gave us a sneak preview of what to expect and a chance to buy bottles at a bit of a discount. We really liked this one so we pre-ordered a half case. It was recently released and came right to my door! We also got a half case of the 2004 Trius Cabernet Sauvignon.
So now I have the daunting task of picking which one to try first and what dishes to make to serve with it. My goodness, my life is full of such tough decisions.
