Burly at the Barn

BURLY WINE CELLAR DINNER Saturday, Sept. 17 | $150 per person 6pm Social – 7pm Dinner Buy Tickets Here: http://www.angusbarn.com/cart/Burly-Wine-Dinner-Saturday-September-17-2016-P111.aspx The name for BURLY originates from founder Hank McCrorie’s college football days, when he was dubbed “Burly Bear” by the local paper. The nickname stuck among his teammates and given the bold nature of this wine, is more than a befitting tribute. The oak tree display on the label is not only a symbol connecting the McCrorie’s childhoods – Hank growing up surrounded by the beautiful southern oaks of North Carolina and Bernice the sprawling oak trees at the family ranch in Northern California – but also embodies the intrinsic flavors of tannins and oak, balanced by the beauty of its velvety, rich and flavorful layers.

Taylor’s Private Label

TAYLOR’S WINE SHOP PROUDLY PRESENTS… OUR VERY OWN, PRIVATE LABEL WINE! Taylor’s 2013 Porch Pounder Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands $34.99 BUY NOW Once upon a time, Taylor and a few of his wine drinking pals were in California hanging out with the Garys (Pisoni of Pisoni Winery and Franscioni of Roar) and Roar’s winemaker, Ed Kurtzman, and they came up with the idea doing a Taylor’s private label. Ed said that he had a stray barrel or two of fantastic Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir that he thought would be perfect for us and a taste or two later, Taylor’s Porch Pounder Pinot was born. Now that all the hurdles of of label design, ABC approval, transportation… have been cleared, our first private label wine is here! Ed Kurtzman is one of California’s top Pinot Noir specialists, having made incredible wines over the years for well known Pinot houses such as Roar, Calera, Testarossa and Fort Ross. Ed has delivered another stunner here, and at a great price compared to what many of his wines go for at the “big name” producers. A sensuous dark reddish purple in color, this silky Pinot is highly aromatic, featuring scents of crushed purple grapes, dark berries, spring flowers and black tea. A voluptuous wine with sustained mid palate flavors of sweet boysenberry, blackberry, plum along with notes of cola, smoke and...
