In-Store Tasting:
A Celebration of the life of Ruth Bassin

Saturday, June 10th 12-3pm

This tasting is a first for a Saturday Tasting at MacArthur Beverages. It offers a rare opportunity to meet and taste wine with so many California winemakers at one time.

 

The winemakers will be in the store from 12 to 3pm, after which, they will go to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for the dinner honoring Mrs. Bassin.Ticket for the dinner are still available, but selling quickly. There will be an opportunity at the dinner to bid on several silent auction items including the only etched 3 liter bottle of Ruth red wine that will ever be available, signed by the wine maker Sean Larkin. We do hope you will be able to attend this amazing evening!

 

Join us Saturday, June 10th from 12-3 at the store for a Special Tasting!

The 2014 "Ruth" By Sean Larkin

On my trip to Napa last year Sean Larkin, Bruce Devlin and I spent the morning at Ballentine winery tasting through barrels from the 2014 vintage and eventually settling on two barrels of merlot to which we blended a small amount of petit verdot. This wine is loaded with rich notes of dark chocolate, roasted espresso, black berried fruit, spice and lush red cherries. The result is Ruth: a wine made to honor Mrs. Ruth Bassin, the late matriarch of MacArthur Beverages.

We only made 44 cases of this beautiful wine. We hope you will enjoy it and raise a glass to this wonderful woman.
