IN THIS ISSUE:  Library Sale - Verticals - Last call 08 Provocateur Pinot - Valentine's Library Tasting Feb 12, 13 - Tasting room visits

Late January 2011

Hi friends,

Another day and another year older, wondering where it all disappears. Though it's true about time, in this case I'm specifically speaking about wine. That's why once a year we reach back into the J.K. Carriere cellar library and bring out bottles that have otherwise 'disappeared.' Our annual library sale is a self-serving pilgrimage to prove our commitment to aged wine and why we build Pinot noir that way for you. Yep, you're going to like them.

So take the opportunity to re-stock your cellar, or acquire some bottles you may have missed the first time around. And if you're in Oregon the weekend before Valentine's Day, I hope you'll make an effort to come to our Valentine's Library Tasting (info at end). Sharing the 'aha' moment of the beauty of aged Pinot Noir with you makes it one of our favorite tasting events of the year.

Library Sale
Our Sixth Annual Library Sale begins today. Print the order form and fax it in or contact Linda (503-554-0721, linda@jkcarriere.com) with your order. The sale runs through February 15th, or until the allotted wine is gone. Note: Ground shipments are weather-dependent; we are happy to hold your wine until the frigid weather passes.

Verticals are the theme

2006 WV Pinot noir - ripe, complex, age-worthy ... What's not to love?

2008 WV Pinot noir - balanced power and grace in a heralded vintage

A ballerina of a wine whereby strength, grace and movement pirouette as the pinnacle of elegance from our cellar (and Jim's personal favorite).
