22 Mar Closeout & Bargain Cabernet Sauvignons
94 Point Cabernet Closeout!
And More Cabernets on Sale!
The Trinchero family started making wine in 1947, and Bob Trinchero was the winemaker who “discovered” white Zinfandel, when fermentation got “stuck” in 1975 while Trinchero was working at Sutter Home. Of course, the family is known for much more than the white Zin concept. This closeout is a great bargain from the wonderful 2012 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon vintage.
“Trinchero produced delicious 2012s!”

2012 Trinchero Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon “Mario’s Vineyard,” Napa Valley
On Sale $25.99… Next lowest price online is $43.22!!
A big and rich red with lots of dried berry and blueberry character. Chocolate too. Full-bodied, round and chewy. A wine with fruit and muscle that gives it form.

Other great value Cabernets from the AWESOME 2012 and 2013 vintages.
2013 Jax Y3 Cabernet Sauvignon “Taureau” Proprietary Red, Napa Valley
On Sale $21.99
The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Y3 Taureau is a blend of 45% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 10% Zinfandel, all coming from of various sectors of Napa, ranging from Oak Knoll in the south, to Calistoga in the north. A beautifully sexy wine, with a dense purple color, big sweet kiss of blackberry and cassis liqueur, licorice and spice followed by lush, heady, full-bodied flavors that caress the palate. A beautifully rich, concentrated, irresistible style of wine to drink casually or with serious cuisine. The label is a bit wacky, but the wine certainly isn’t.

2013 Gianni Paoletti “Bella Novello” Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, California…a Merch bestseller!
On Sale $23.99
Buy this by the case, and drink some now, drink some in a few years. If there is a better 2013 out there dollar for dollar, we’ve not seen it. A great Napa value with all of the opulent cassis, plum, blackberry notes you want out of Napa without the hefty price.
2013 Kith & Kin by Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
On Sale $28.99
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Kith & Kin is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot and 5% Petite Sirah. This is another winner, and a great buy at $30. Deep ruby/purple, sweet crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, a nice, lush, fat palate and loads of glycerin make for a savory, hedonistic style of wine to drink over the next 5-7 years.
