Donati Family Vineyard is back with a discount of almost 70% on this highly recommended private label Cab made for a restaurant program.
Today we've got a pretty special wine, made available for obvious pandemic based reasons.
And yes that discount is based on the marked up $48 a bottle restaurant price. However, this wine is a complete steal at our price of just $15 a bottle.
The Galatoire's Cabernet Sauvignon is really more of a Bordeaux blend than a true Cabernet, consisting of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Merlot, 8.5% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 20 months with 20% new French oak, 30% new American oak and 10% new hybrid barrels and has 14.1% alcohol.
The wine comes from the excellent Paicines AVA which is on the other side of the Galban mountain range from Monterey. It is the southernmost (and warmest) AVA in San Benito County. It's also where our very popular Donati Claret deal came from.
Produced and bottled by Donati Family Vineyard, this is not a bulk wine with a label thrown on; this is truly good stuff made by a highly respected winery.
As we mentioned above the Galatoire's Cabernet Sauvignon is priced at $48 a bottle at the restaurant. However, we're slashing that price by almost 70%, netting you 6 bottles for less than the cost of 2!

The 2017 Donati Family Vineyard Galatoire's Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a strong and inviting aroma of plum and dark berry plus vanilla, a little mint and baking spice and an excellent dried herbal note.
Taking a sip reveals a smooth and quite tasty wine with good depth of flavor on the dark berry fruit and well-integrated spice. Easy to drink and quite delicious, touches of vanilla, chocolate, cola and some oaky spice lead into the dry, long, savory and a bit chewy finish.
This is more of a Bordeaux blend than a classic Cabernet but either way its delicious. A solid 9 on day 1, this was even a bit better on day 2. Drink now or over the next 5 years.

Here's what people are saying about our previous Insider Deals:
"I came across your website about a year ago and I think I have already submitted seven or eight orders. One is better than the next, literally! Great wine, great value."
"Wish I would have ordered more!! It was great. Looking back, I wish I didn’t open it at our annual pool party. It’s gone. **Sob**"
"I am seriously considering having the Insider Deals as my primary go-to. Why did I not do this sooner? Thank you"

"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"

"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
