We featured the Eric Kent 2013 Kalen's Big Boy Syrah in our Q4 2016 Wine Club selection. As a general rule, we do not repeat a winery in the club for at least two years, however, the recent events of October 2017 have prompted an exception. Kent Humphrey, his wife Colleen and their two children were forced to flee on foot from their home in Santa Rosa as the Wine Country wildfires erupted overnight. The family lost everything, including their home and cars, along with the office from which they ran the winery business and sadly, over 80 works of original art which have adorned their wine labels. Assistant winemaker Hanna Chort also lost her home to the ferocious fires. Since the tragedy, Kent and Hanna have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from the surrounding wine community. As a similar show of support, CWM has decided that the most direct and personal way to help in this time of need is to once again feature one of his wines (the 2014 Pinot Noir, Stiling Vineyard, Russian River Valley) in our wine club and get him back here for a Monday night tasting.
Please join us as we welcome Kent back to lead us through a tasting of his delicious wines. If you can't make the tasting, please consider ordering some of his wines from us. Thank you for your support.
