Bruliam Gets Bottled

Posted by admin , August 31, 2010




Yesterday we had a great day bottling our 2009 pinot noirs.  We managed to get all three bottlings done in just under 5 hours.  Next up – we get to start tasting in anticipation of an official release date.

P.S.  Anyone notice anything different about the labels this year?  Put a note in the comments.

    The date is different, it’s from Split Rock (not Doctor’s Vineyard), from Sonoma Coast (not Santa Lucia Highlands), and the dots separating the syllables have been removed.

    Will – you got it. While the vintage and vineyard will change with each wine accordingly, we elected to get rid of the dots separating the BRU-LI-AM this year. I may have to dig out a prize for you…

    Love it. When a wine is as famous as yours is becoming, one needs not instruct us plebs how to pronounce it anymore. Budding legend has no further need to educate. I predict, given your ever-expanding mastery of this craft, that by your 2013 vintage you can simply just drop everything, Prince-style, to either just the upper left dot design, or just plain “Bu” on the bottle. I CAN’T wait to try your new wines! Congrats !!!!!

    I, too, was going to say, that the syllabication was removed.

    Thanks Jazz – wow, I had to Google “syllabication” to check to see if it’s actually a word. I guess that’s why your the teacher and I used to cheat off Kerith’s grammar quizzes in 10th grade.
