Greetings from CT Wine Authority
Welcome to our weekly newsletter detailing information and updates on all things wine and spirits.  Look for our communications early each week for upcoming wine tastings, events, and exciting new products.  We encourage you to visit our website at www.ctwineauthority.com for wine details, rating information, to find your favorite wine, or to order directly online.

We are pleased to introduce these two new wines to our loyal customers. They have both received excellent press from Wine Spectator and we look forward to passing these values on to you. The Syrah is made by the same winery that makes the widely famous "House Wine" series that we have come to know and love.

Smooth, polished and wide-open in texture, with gorgeous plum and blueberry fruit getting added nuances from hints of Indian spices. The finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2016. 2,436 cases made. �HS

TASTING NOTE: Pure elixir, viscous & rich, saturated with blueberry and raspberry fruit. Deep with game & spice. Full in the mouth & long on pleasure! Syrah!

VINTAGE NOTE: The 2006 growing season in the Columbia Valley presented a year of extremes in weather. The spring was wet and cooler than normal leading into a long, hot summer. Summer provided ideal conditions of dry weather, warm days and cool nights. Harvest began early, with some white grapes picked in late August. A cooler period in Mid-September slowed things down and allowed more hang time for enhanced flavor development.more

We have been crafting small lots of wine at MacRostie Winery from local grapes for nearly three decades. Our wines are meant to highlight the unique character of our home region of Carneros, as well as two neighboring areas that are also well known for quality, Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast. They all display delicate, complex aromas combined with rich, ripe flavors.

TASTING NOTES: Beautiful pale straw gold in color, the aromas are reminiscent of lime oil and cr�me brulée. In the mouth there is lush baked apple and ripe mango, with a hint of cinnamon toast. It finishes with a good deal of weight, but is still light on its feet.

VINEYARD NOTES: The 2007 growing season was very close to perfect. No spring frosts, no serious hot spells, and no significant rain prior to harvest. All of our grapes achieved optimum flavor ripeness without excessive sugar levels, and maintained their natural acid balance. Yields were moderate, averaging around 3 to 5 tons per acre, although Wildcat was quite a bit lower, as always. All of the grapes destined for the Carneros Chardonnay blend were picked by hand from September 5 through October 8.

WINEMAKING NOTES: The grapes went direct to press as whole clusters in order to maximize quality, and were gently pressed. After settling, most of the juice was racked to French and Hungarian oak barrels for fermentation, 20% of which were new. Once dry and finished with ML, the barrel-fermented lots were aged on the lees for six months, with occasional stirring to increase richness and body. A few lots, however, were tank fermented and then barreled down later to emphasize the fruit and aromatics. The final blend was assembled just prior to bottling, which ran from June 2 through June 18, 2008.more
