Fall Allocation Update

Fall Allocation Period: October 27 - November 10

We know many of you have been anxiously awaiting the fall allocation, our first offering of Bordeaux varietals from WeatherEye vineyard. The allocation period was originally scheduled to begin this Thursday, but we have postponed it until after the October pickup weekend. We apologize for the date change and any confusion this may have caused.

The allocation includes a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a 100% Cabernet Franc, both coming from specific blocks of vines highlighted for their unique characteristics. These extremely limited wines have already received high accolades from independent wine critic, Jeb Dunnuck.

Block 47 Cabernet Sauvignon                   96-98 points
"Another powerful, dense, incredibly impressive wine, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Block 47 (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers a great perfume of cassis, scorched earth, and chocolate. It’s loaded with ripe, opulent fruit yet has plenty of tannins hiding under all its baby fat." - Jeb Dunnuck

Block 10 Cabernet Franc                        94-96+ points
"The 2019 Cabernet Franc Block 10 is another 100% varietal from winemaker Chris Peterson that does everything right. Offering slightly lifted notes of blue fruits, violets, and flowers, it has a more modern, opulent vibe than most wines from Chris yet still has classic Cabernet Franc complexity as well as ripe, polished tannins and terrific balance." - Jeb Dunnuck

To prepare for the fall allocation:

1.  Log in to your account.

2.  Verify all account information is accurate.

3.  Make sure you have a valid credit card saved to your account.

Allocation offers and/or wishlists will be in your online account beginning 10/27/21.

REMINDER: The pickup weekend for the spring (Rhône) allocation is Saturday, October 23, and Sunday, October 24, from 12PM-4PM, both days, at the LIMINAL production facility. This will be a drive-through pickup with no wine tasting and will be the only opportunity to pick up your wine. Any pickup orders that are left unclaimed at the end of the weekend will be shipped. Please make sure you have a credit card on file to ensure we are able to ship your wine without delay.

And, please save the date for our spring tasting event, tentatively scheduled for the weekend of April 9-10, 2022. More information to come.

James Suckling Reviews of 2018 GSM and 2018 High Canyon Syrah

James Suckling recently reviewed wines from Washington State. The reviews can be found on his site jamessuckling.com (subscription required). Here's what he had to say about a couple of LIMINAL's inaugural release wines:

2018 GSM     94 points

"Aromas of brambleberries, rosemary, lavender, cracked pepper and stones. Lemon zest, white pepper and spice, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tight-grained tannins and bright acidity. Wild, savory and zesty. Flavorful finish with good length. Drink now or hold."

2018 High Canyon Syrah     94 points

"Spiced cherries, salted plums, dried mint, violets, peppercorns and smoked meat on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine tannins. Rich and savory with fresh acidity and a long, vivid finish. Drink or hold."
