Save the date: Library Teaser

AT MY DESK TRYING TO COME UP WITH SOME CONTENT FOR THE BLOG

HELLO! Look at the color of that almost decade old Cabernet. It’s Scherrer Vineyard 2002 from Ed Scherrer’s (Fred’s Dad) Vineyard in Alexander Valley. The family farm is closer to Chalk Hill than to the warmer Cloverdale area.

Structure. Great Cab flavors with a backbone of acidity and tannins that will probably hold up for years to come.  No milkshake here. This wine does have good fruit but also includes some nice subtle savory herbal notes to it as well.

HOW ABOUT THIS BIG BOY FROM YEARS GONE BY. 3-Litre '97

I LOVE FILM NOIR. THESE TWO BRUISERS FROM 1993 AND 1996 IN 3L

KERRY AND I WERE DOING THE LIBRARY INVENTORY WHEN I DUSTED THIS '93 OFF

THAT WAS EXCITING UNTIL I FOUND THESE TWO GEMS! 1991 WAS FRED'S DEBUT VINTAGE!

Scherrer Winery is not the new kid on the block. He’s been making wine since the 80s. Dehlinger. Fort Ross. He even helped out with some projects for Sonoma-Cutrer when they asked for his help. Fred’s not the new “cool & groovy” bad boy from UC-Davis…oh wait…he did go to Davis…way back in the day…and he does play guitar. Anyways, what I’m saying is that this is “that” winery you say you want to find:  Tiny. Winemaker’s always there. Hand-crafted. Down to earth. Quaint. Some of the equipment is homemade or antique.  Smokin’ wines. Truly Unique!

Try to visit the Scherrer Open House in November. There will be a selection of wines from the Library. (not necessarily the ones pictured above)

new episode under “The Months” section

<disclaimer. I did not receive any of these wines free (damn it all), nor am I being compensated by Scherrer Winery for writing my blog (double damn it all)
. I like the wines and I like to blog…I usually don’t critique wines in my blog.>
