2013 Acumen Red Blend “Mountainside,” Napa Valley, California
On Sale $29.99 (lowest price online!)
Sourced from the terroir-driven
mountain sides of Atlas Peak, including the iconic Stagecoach Vineyard, this stunning Cabernet Sauvignon was authored by non-other than iconic winemaker Denis Malbec (a rather fitting last name too!). Malbec was the wine maker for the legendary 1st growth Château Latour from 1994 to 1999. In addition he produced perfect 100 point scores at both Château Latour in France, and the Kapcsandy Winery in Napa Valley. This medium-bodied wine shows multiple aromas of ripe cherries, rose petals, dried herbs, and cigar box. The soft and round mouthfeel offers up fresh blueberries, cassis, and pomegranates on the palate, with licorice and forest floor notes through the long and elegant nish. We love this wine with roasted and braised meats, especially beef, lamb, and pork.
2015 Skyfall Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley AVA, Washington
On Sale $12.99 (lowest price online!!!)
Oodles of black currant, black cherry and french oak leads from the nose through the mid-palate. The fruit evolves into dark blackberry with hints of cocoa and vanilla. This is a big, structured wine with nice lingering flavors. We opened this up to taste on aMonday and loved it. We revisited the bottles two days later and it was even better! We’d decant this for about an hour prior to serving. This is WAY over delivering at this price point.
