Moreover...

BIG NEWS today Operatives, and a tiny bit of a concern that comes with it. Celebrity winemaker Ross Cobb (formerly of Williams Selyem, Flowers, and his very own Cobb Wines) has now joined the Furthermore team as consulting winemaker! That comes with a tiny worry though, because once the word gets out, the wine press will be all over Furthermore and our awesome exclusive deals may diminish with accolades and rising demand. It’s exactly how it works in this business, so we seized the day while we can to bring you in on these discoveries secretly so that you too can carpe diem along…

Ruby to the core, with garnet highlights surrounding the broad rim. Red currants, cherries, raspberries, flint, and earth are all evocative on the redolent nose. Juicy on the palate with notions of kirsch, floral, spice and mineral hints too, lavish and accessible at the same time. The finish culminates in a perfect marriage of savory and fruity, as an old school Russian River would with impeccable balance. Enjoy this irresistible Pinot with wild salmon or turkey, a decadent risotto or a beet salad.

Furthermore… pun intended, this Pinot for all that scrumptiousness, comes with unforeseeable, whopping 45% savings. The San Francisco International Wine Competition is one of the world’s premier wine judging events and in 2015, Furthermore’s winemaking team was awarded the competition’s highest winemaking honor, the coveted André Tchelistcheff Winemakers of the Year award. To add to the accolades, every Furthermore Pinot Noir being judged in 2015 won either a Gold or Double Gold Medal. This award-winning winery is surely one to keep on the radar!
