Lauren Ashton Gala!

Lauren_Ashton_EventLauren_Ashton_CellarMike and I had the privilege of attending the first ever Lauren Ashton club members event last Saturday. The food was very complementary to the new releases and the atmosphere was lovely. Kit Singh outdid himself with the 2011 Cuvee Mirabelle, a wonderful blend of Grenache(55%),  Syrah(40%), and Mourvedre(5%), producing a rich blend of dark fruits and a peppery balance.  The Cuvee Meline is also a beautiful blend of Sauvignon Blanc(83%) and Semillon(17%),  boasting of pineapple, peach, and grapefruit flavors that were fermented at low temperatures.

For more information about this unique winery please refer back to my article titled “Out Of The Box“.
