Today is Friday.
Thus, a week from today is First Friday.
Thus, a week from today is the first opportunity for members and their guests to enjoy a sampler of new spring releases in their “official” New Release raiment.
On parade in all the finery of their spring habiliment shall be our trio of new Estate Releases:
But this is not all!
In celebration of all things Buchignani, we shall endeavor to conjure from the oeno-athenaeum a supplemental grace note to the evening’s passing chords, in the form of a Buchignani offering from a time when — here be clues! —the book of Faces took their launch; from a time when Edvard Munch’s immortal sound went mortal missing; from a time when the line of Miłosz was enjambed a final time …
And as you ponder on how to unriddle that riddle, consider again the new ’09 zin …
This wine comes from a small planting of old-vine zinfandel on the Buchignani Ranch on Dutcher Creek Road in the hills north of Dry Creek Valley. (Carignane planted on the rest of the ranch provides a separate ATP selection.) The zinfandel block, approximately five acres in size, was planted sixty to seventy years ago. The vines are on a rocky knoll overlooking the family home where Stan Buchignani, grandson of the ranch’s founder, Domenico Cerruti, lives today.
Come then, please join us! First Friday awaits with bated breath …
