Lacaze Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 $18.99 $12.99 $6.00
A world class Chilean Cab from Jean Pascaal that is both juicy and elegant. There is a backbone of oak and cedar most likely from the bit of Carmenere added to the blend. A long finish with some spice. OUT of STOCK - pick an option.
Ken Deis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 $49.99 $22.99 $27.00
A top Napa Cab at this price is amazing. Ripe dark fruit with a very long finish. At $50 it’s a bargain… but at $23. it is hard to believe. Too bad it’s gone but you can get in line for the next vintage. OUT of STOCK - Reserve next vintage.
i-Latina La Rabicana Vineyard Carmenere 2016 $19.99 $15.99 $4.00
Irene Paiva crafted this outstanding Carmenere from a singe vineyard in Peumo, Chile and allowed it to develop an intense dark fruit profile, smooth tanins and a touch of new world spice. OUT of STOCK - Reserve next vintage.
Richard Bruno Clarksburg Petite Sirah 2018 $19.99 $11.99 $8.00
I confess. I am a Petite Sirah lover and this one by Richard Bruno is dark and complex just how I like it. Plus, it is a real powerhouse from Clarksburg. Grill a porterhouse or blackened pork chops for a great pairing. Give it some breathing time and you will be rewarded. Go for it before it’s gone.
Jose Hernandez Gualtallary Las Divas 2018 $22.99 $13.99 $9.00
A near perfect blend of Mendoza Malbec and Cabernet with a touch of Cab Franc from the Uco valley delivers a left bank Bordeaux profile…
maybe it’s the French oak barreling. Outstanding! OUT of STOCK - Try the 2019, it’s available.
F. Stephen Miller Black Label California Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
$22.99 $12.99 $10.00
I like F. Stephen Miller’s wines. This is no exception. Velvet smoothness wrapped in dark berry richness is sure to please the most particular Cabernet lover and, it will last a good while in the cellar. OUT of STOCK - Reserve next vintage.
Making a case for a case of Naked Wines, even when 10 out of 12 are out of stock
What do you do when the wines you want are out of stock? Actually, it's an opportunity not a problem. Here's what to do. Go to NakedWines.com and become an Angel. Then, reserve how many bottles of each wine you want and, when the next vintage is available, it will be held for you. That's a great idea. If you really like a particular wine from a specific winemaker, you will always be at the front-of-the-line for the next vintage. Example: Jose Hernandez Gualtallary Red Blend from Argentina.
