Crushpad reports that it is considering making sparkling wine for the first time. The Fainwood crew is very interested. If you might be interested in some sparkling Fainwood, leave us a comment below.
Ryan reports that he gave a bottle of Fainwood Sauvignon Blanc to friends who reported back to him that "A fistfight broke out over who got the fifth glass!"

With much consternation, we opened, decanted, and waited for a few hours before tasting the latest addition to the Fainwood family. Early reports...young, but delicious, with a great deep color, vanilla tones, and berries peeking out. The wine needs a rest after its travels, but the early reports are that we'll be living high on some excellent zinfandel.

Twenty-five cases of Fainwood 2007 zinfandel rolled off the truck into the Goldstein Long Island compound Wednesday. With only two bottles lost in transit -- one rolled out of the pallet, down the driveway, and christened the driveway with red wine -- the new wine has safely arrived. Two cases are bound for Massachusetts this weekend.
Unlike the sauvignon blanc, half this production belongs to the Davenports, who are anxiously awaiting its arrival as well.

Waiting for a Fainwood red? If all goes well, the 2007 Fainwood Zinfandel arrives on Long Island tomorrow. First tasting scheduled for this weekend. Although it will need many weeks to recover from its cross-country voyage, it will be the first time to see just how the blend came together. More on that to come.
