Wine is Life, Drink it Up!
Vintner Susan Collier’s legacy lives on in a very special vintage called Syrah du Soleil Sue's Block which is currently being sold by the case exclusively for the CPMC’s Forbes Norris ALS Research and Treatment Center in honor of Susan who passed away from ALS in 2007. Only 75 cases have been made from this first harvest which was aged in oak for the past twenty months. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat gives Syrah du Soleil Sue's Block their highest rating of 4 stars and says, “Highly recommended! A big, burly Syrah with good complexity. Juicy, with notes of blackberry, dried cherry, roasted rosemary and spice. Nice length." Please consider adding this delightful wine to your personal reserve by calling the Family Wineries and Tasting Room at 888-433-6555, ex. 2 or e-mailing email@example.com. Questions about the wine, its production or the vintage are all welcome and can be directed to Barry at 707-433-7373. Cases are $480 plus shipping which ranges from $20-40. Sales tax only applies in California.
"It is a privilege to be part of the clinical team at the Forbes Norris MDA/ALS Research Center at California Pacific Medical Center. We care for patients, their families and conduct research to find the cause and cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Our multidisciplinary team provides the scope of care necessary to allow our patients to live their lives with dignity. We are recognized as being among the best in the world in effectively treating people with this disease, but we still have a long way to go. We aim even higher than improving disease management. Our patients participate in cutting-edge clinical trials seeking to find new ways to slow the relentless progression of the paralysis that inevitably results in death. Additionally, we are working on bringing the latest molecular biological findings about motor nerve cells directly from the laboratory bench to the bedside. The courage and dignity of our ALS families inspires us to work even harder to keep hope alive." — Robert G. Miller, M.D.
