Giving Thanks with the Iron Horse Winemaker

We’re starting a monthly blog series of dispatches from our Iron Horse Winemaker David Munksgard who thoughtfully selects his favorite bottles for the uniquely fanatical wine club members in his “Winemaker’s Choice Club”. We’re excited to share his November wine recommendations, perfectly timed as much of the country is already bundling up for winter. Find out what our winemaker is drinking and thinking as we get a propitious start to Thanksgiving celebrations with the full moon on the 25th!



For the November 2015 Winemaker’s Selection I’ve  chosen a Sparkler and a Pinot Noir.
The bubbly is the 2011 Winter’s Cuvee. As I write, much of the country has received an early start to winter. The Northeast  has just received its first snowfall, in some places, while the fall colors were still at their peak. The pictures I saw on the Weather Channel were amazing.


Winter’s Cuvee is my vision of the perfect bubbly for cold weather sipping. The dosage for the 2011 Winter’s Cuvee is unique. In order to give it a bit more of an aged tone, I made a sugar-wine syrup from 1980 Blanc de Blanc that was just disgorged off its fermentation lees (yeast). That along with a bit of estate 1987 Pinot Noir brandy gives this wine a toasty, yeasty creaminess that lingers deliciously in your mouth. Winter’s Cuvee sells out very quickly every year. If you plan on doing any holiday celebrating that involves bubbly, you might want to place your orders for extra ASAP. The drinking window on this wine is from now for the next two years, if properly stored.


The still Pinot Noir in this shipment is the 2013 North Block. Comprised solely of the Calera Clone, this wine displays a bright red fruit focus that is extraordinary for a wine this young. Supple and brimming with ripe flavors, every sip demands yet another. Drinking window on this wine is now to the next four to five years (possibly much longer), again, if properly stored. I’m going to be enjoying some this winter, and then age the remainder for three years and try it again.



All my very best,

When I started PurseBlog [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] over 11 years ago, it was because I [url=][b]coach factory outlet online[/b][/url] absolutely loved bags. I remember how excited I got when I'd get to the [url=][b]coach outlet store online[/b][/url] mall and go into the coach store or department store to look at bags. I'd tear out ads from [url=][b]coach outlet online[/b][/url] magazines with photos of bags from upcoming collections that I was [url=][b]coach factory outlet[/b][/url] yearning for. After 11 [url=][b]coach factory outlet[/b][/url] years of talking about bags, I've found [url=][b]coach outlet online[/b][/url] majority of brands wax and wane with popularity, while one [url=][b]coach factory outlet online[/b][/url] year is all about designer X and the [url=][b]coach factory outlet[/b][/url] following about a [url=][b]chi flat iron[/b][/url] different [url=][b]ralph lauren outlet[/b][/url] designer. I spend every day looking at bags and while I still truly am a bag girl, I find it harder to [url=][b]coach online outlet factory [/b][/url] narrow in on designs that have my heart going pitter-patter. Part of this is [url=][b]abercrombie and fitch[/b][/url] because I now have a substantial collection [url=][b]coach outlet online[/b][/url] and the other part is [url=][b]valentino shoes[/b][/url] because I see so many bags in person and online daily. But because of this, when I see a bag I [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] absolutely love, I know it right away. It's that feeling I get deep down in my core that got me started in all of this [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] and has me continuing [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] PurseBlog after all of these years. I've had the [url=][b]Marc Jacobs outlet[/b][/url] intense ‘I love this bag' feeling [url=][b]coach outlet online[/b][/url] happen to me a few times with different colors of this Chloé Hudson Small [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] Shoulder Bag for a while now. Clearly, the bag speaks to me and clearly it's about time for me to [url=][b]sac chanel[/b][/url] grab one. Amanda and I feel similarly that when it comes to our realm that [url=][b]coach factory outlet store[/b][/url] bags are top of the game right now (Amanda shared why she thinks [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] Chloé is making the best bags right now). Sure other brands have [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] beautiful bags, but [url=][b]coach factory outlet[/b][/url] is a brand I continue to be drawn to. The [url=][b]coach factory[/b][/url] Hudson is now a staple for [url=][b]coach factory online[/b][/url] the brand but I'm all kinds of obsessed with this suede version [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] that is exclusive to Neiman [url=][b]coach factory outlet[/b][/url] Marcus. The [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] deep purple wine hue is dreamy and perfect for the upcoming fall season. I love the [url=][b]coach factory online[/b][/url] smaller size of this bag [url=][b]coach Purses[/b][/url] and have tried it in store to know that it will [url=][b]coach outlet online store[/b][/url] carry plenty while not being too large. Overall, this [url=][b]michael kors outlet online[/b][/url] bag is just [url=][b]michael kors outlet online[/b][/url] good, pretty and I've added it to my fall wardrobe [url=][b]true religion outlet[/b][/url]. There are a few other hues (you can shop a good assortment of Chloé bags at Neiman Marcus), but this new [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] color in suede has shot up to the top of [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] my list as a favorite. It's exclusive to Neiman Marcus so if I end up buying it, we can be [url=][b]coach outlet[/b][/url] bag twins. Shop it via [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] for $2,090. coach is America's biggest homegrown [url=][b]michael kors outlet online[/b][/url] accessories brand, not to mention arguably the world's most [url=][b]michael kors outlet online[/b][/url] important contemporary handbag brand, so we always pay [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] attention when there's a new coach collection to see. That's especially [url=][b]michael kors outlet online[/b][/url] true since creative [url=][b]michael kors outlet online[/b][/url] director Stuart Vevers launched coach 1941, the company's more fashion-forward [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] and [url=][b]coach outlet online[/b][/url] luxurious [url=][b]michael kors[/b][/url] offshoot, and the coach 1941 Fall 2016 [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] collection, which just [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] launched on, demonstrates exactly why. The collection, which includes ready-to-wear, outerwear and shoes, in [url=][b]michael kors outlet online[/b][/url] addition to the brand's signature bags and leather goods, has notes of the [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] West, one of Vevers's favorite references [url=][b]michael kors outlet[/b][/url] during his [url=][b]sac blanc[/b][/url] time at coach. That influence [url=][b]michael kors[/b][/url] makes itself visible in the collection's earthy [url=][b]michael kors[/b][/url] palette and traditionally Southwestern studding and embroidery. All of that is balanced with more whimsical notes, though, including a very cute illustrated dinosaur named Rexy. There's a lot [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] to enjoy in the [url=][b]oakley Vault[/b][/url] collection, but we [url=][b]ray ban sunglasses[/b][/url] our picks down to a cool dozen to get you started. Check out our [url=][b]sac louis vuitton[/b][/url] favorites below or shop the full [url=][b]ray ban outlet[/b][/url] collection at coach outlet online

The entire [url=][b]ray-ban sunglasses[/b][/url] Kardashian family loves [url=][b]true religion outlet[/b][/url] bags just about as much as any other [url=][b]valentino shoes[/b][/url] celebrities I can [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] of. While Kim loves her Birkins as much as the next [url=][b]cheap ray ban sunglasses[/b][/url], Kris, the [url=][b]chanel porte[/b][/url] matriarch of the family constantly carries [url=][b]valentino shoes outlet[/b][/url] bags; recently we did the math to see how much Kris Jenner's Hermès [url=][b]ray ban sunglasses[/b][/url] is worth (hint: [url=][b]Giuseppe Zanotti[/b][/url] over $500,000). With that in mind, it's fitting that [url=][b]sac chanel,sac a main[/b][/url] Kris was the member of the clan to have an entire closet built out just for her [url=][b]ray-ban sunglasses[/b][/url] collection, and we some of the photos of her new handbag heaven. Earlier [url=][b]ray ban outlet[/b][/url] this month Kylie [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url], queen of Snapchat, took to her account to [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] a look at Kris's Kloset. (I couldn't resist.) Inside the [url=][b]ray ban outlet[/b][/url] clean, sleek [url=][b]cheap oakley outlet[/b][/url] closet were many of the bags we've seen Kris carry over over [url=][b]prada outlet[/b][/url] the years, in [url=][b]beats headphones black friday[/b][/url] addition to some [url=][b]louis vuitton[/b][/url] never-before-seen pieces. Each [url=][b]cheap oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] shelf has Hermès bags perfectly [url=][b]cheap oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] and placed. There are [url=][b]Toms shoes[/b][/url] plenty [url=][b]pascher hermes[/b][/url] of Birkins, [url=][b]model de sac chanel[/b][/url] along with other sought-after bags like the [url=][b]valentino Rockstud shoes[/b][/url] Kelly [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] and various [url=][b]oakley sunglasses outlet[/b][/url] from the brand. The focal [url=][b]ray ban pas cher[/b][/url] of the walk-in closet is [url=][b]cheap oakley outlet[/b][/url] sign that reads "Need Money For Birkin" from Los Angeles artist [url=][b]oakley outlet[/b][/url] Dunn. This slogan is a joke among [url=][b]toms outlet[/b][/url] handbag lovers [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] and has been for some time; "need money for handbags" (or [url=][b]ray ban outlet[/b][/url] some specific bag) [url=][b]valentino Rockstud[/b][/url] has been spotted on profile pages of our PurseForum members for years. The artist knows this sign may cause quite the reaction; it's part of her "Next [url=][b]chanel porte monnaie[/b][/url] Generation" collection, that swaps out [url=][b]ray ban outlet online[/b][/url] everyday survival items like food, water [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] and shelter for luxurious [url=][b]ray ban outlet[/b][/url] alternatives like Birkins, Botox [url=][b]ray ban outlet[/b][/url] and breast implants. Photos of [url=][b]ray ban sunglasses[/b][/url] the closet show Beau [url=][b]christian louboutin outlet[/b][/url] Dunn posing with her piece. There are also peeks Kylie [url=][b]sac chanel[/b][/url] Jenner shares on her [url=][b]valentin outlet[/b][/url], which helps put perspective on all of Kris's [url=][b]christian louboutin[/b][/url] bags in one place. As for the bags, it's extensive. There are classic [url=][b]ray-ban sunglasses[/b][/url] along with plenty of exotics. I'm just hoping someday Kris will let us into her closet to take [url=][b]cheap ray ban outlet[/b][/url] a bag lover like us, after all. It's all so over [url=][b]valentino shoes[/b][/url] the top, but we [url=][b]valentino shoes[/b][/url] already knew how [url=][b]ray ban sunglasses[/b][/url] much Kris Jenner loves [url=][b]christian louboutin outlet[/b][/url] handbags, so it's really not that surprising.

We spend the [url=][b]oakley outlet[/b][/url] majority of our time hear [url=][b]ralph lauren outlet[/b][/url] talking about handbags, but [url=][b]North Face outlet[/b][/url] goes in them is just as important, and thankfully, some [url=][b]red bottom shoes[/b][/url] designers put as [url=][b]sac chanel,sac a main[/b][/url] care into the design [url=][b]true religion outlet[/b][/url] of their wallets and small leather goods as they do into their big-name bags. Thankfully, [url=][b]ray ban outlet[/b][/url] is among them; last week, we looked at the brand's [url=][b]true religion[/b][/url] Winter 2016 [url=][b]ralph lauren outlet[/b][/url] handbag lookbook, and today, we're here to do [url=][b]true religion outlet[/b][/url] the same with the [url=][b]valentino shoes[/b][/url] accessories. In case you've [url=][b]sac longchamp[/b][/url] never considere [url=][b]oakley sunglasses[/b][/url] small leather goods before, the brand's [url=][b]hermes birkin outlet[/b][/url] allets (which they refer to as "multifunctions"), card cases and coin [url=][b]hermes bag[/b][/url] have the same spare, modern design sensibility as its bags. They're all highly functional, too, which is [url=][b]Toms shoes outlet online[/b][/url] essential in these smaller pieces. Check them all out, along [url=][b]valentino shoes[/b][/url] their prices, below. [url=][b]Toms outlet[/b][/url] Speaking of all [url=][b]christian louboutin[/b][/url] that, Ariel Winter [url=][b]christian louboutin shoes[/b][/url] turned 18, and we're seeing a lot [url=][b]valentino outlet[/b][/url] more of her "out and about" around LA with great [url=][b]beats by dre[/b][/url] bags. Here she is [url=][b]christian louboutin shoes[/b][/url] Urth Caffe with her boyfriend and a little hot red [url=][b]christian louboutin[/b][/url] Nano Luggage Tote accented with a red Fendi Bag Bug.
