Four 2009s from Rasa

Hello friends. We have a reorder treat today: a chance to dive back into the glorious 2009 vintage from Rasa Vineyards. Most of these wines are getting down to their final handful of cases, but Pinto and Billo have been kind enough to set aside a mixed parcel for our list members.

A little extra bottle age is a beautiful thing, and with 2009 generally being a fleshier, earlier-drinking vintage, these bottles are beginning to hit some serious sweet spots. Enjoy the grab bag!

I won’t put upper limits on these, as this is likely our last shot at accessing any of them. The wines should arrive at the warehouse in the next week or two, at which point they will be ready for pickup or shipping during the next temperature-appropriate shipping window.
