September’s Virtual Tasting will be Novelty Hill’s Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine retails for $25 and can frequently be found on sale. Note that this wine just had a vintage change so I will be tasting both the 2006 and the newly released 2007 side by side. Feel free to pick up either (or both!) for the tasting.
The tasting will take place on Wednesday September 30th. As usual, I will be opening the bottle about 7pm and posting my notes along the way. Please join us in trying this wine and posting your notes.
Novelty Hill is located in Woodinville. The winery shares a tasting room with Januik Winery, although the two are independent ventures. Michael Januik serves as winemaker for both wineries.
I will be updating the Seattle-area list as I get information back from retailers about whether they have this wine in stock. Check back. Also, feel free to comment on places you have seen this wine in your area.
Note: I am not affiliated with nor do I receive compensation from any of the above retailers.
