Esser Vineyards Updates

Monterey, CA – February 9, 2015 – I hope everyone is having a great start to your new year and having fun selling great wines like our Sustainably Farmed, Award Winning Esser in your markets. I'm reaching out with a quick update covering our new vintage releases and our new upcoming limited release of Rosé of Syrah late this spring, as well as some travel dates around the world where we all can meet one another in case you or any of your staff will be attending some of the same world events.

Let’s start with were we are with current vintages:

We still have a limited amount of our award winning #18 top 100 2012 Esser Chardonnay, as well as a limited amount of our Award winning 2012 Esser Cabernet Sauvignon.

Due to our very strong demand from producing high quality wines and solid awards, we have sold out within the USA Warehouse of all our 2012 Esser Sauvignon Blanc, 2012 Esser Pinot Noir, and 2012 Esser Merlot. The great news is we have already released all three of our new and exciting already GOLD MEDAL winning 2013 vintages, as the wines are once again 90 plus point winners and of very solid quality. We can’t wait for you to get them into your markets.

The 2013 Esser Chardonnay and 2013 Esser Cabernet Sauvignon will be released mid to end of February once we insure total quality and ageing.

Now for some more exciting news for late spring, we will be releasing a very limited quantiy 2014 Monterey Rosé of Syrah, here is the label information.

2014 Monterey Rosé of Syrah

Esser wines are produced from sustainably farmed vineyards of the picturesque Monterey County. The long growing season benefits from the abundant sunshine and the cool evening breezes of the Pacific Ocean resulting in grapes that express terroir and true varietal character. Our Rosé of Syrah is made in similar style to the great roses of the Southern France.

Cranberry in color, with an expressive nose of rose petals, plum, mineral and sweet spices. Pairs well with Mediterranean cuisine including Spanish Tapas, olive oils, garlic or simply enjoy on it's own.

Please reach out to myself or your Appellation Ventures / Esser Wines VP for more information, this wine will move very fast and we already are receiving reservations for cases, as it is a limited production and is of outstanding 2014 vintage.

Now for some world tour dates and where you can catch myself, Peter Huwiler, or Earl Myers with Appellation Ventures / Esser Wines for meetings the first few months of this year.
