We're back with another deal from the the guy who literally wrote the book on winemaking, Clark Smith, author of PostModern Winemaking.
And as good as our previous offer on the Two Jakes of Diamonds Cab and Merlot were, this one takes it up another notch.
Clark makes today's wine for his very own WineSmith label using some of the most in-demand fruit out there. In fact, some years he's not even able to make this wine because the Napa wineries gobble up these prized Cab grapes.
This means that today's deal is really the perfect combination -- extremely flavorful and delicious Cabernet grapes in the hands of a truly excellent, highly skilled winemaker offered at a huge discount. What more could a wine lover wish for??
With an SRP of $50 and typically only available through the winery (at that price) this is not a wine that is normally even close to our price range.
Thanks to today's Insider Deal; however, you're getting a full 50% savings (that's $25 a bottle!) with a 3-pack for just $74.99. Yeah, it may be slightly out of our normal price range at $25 a bottle but believe us when we tell you it is more than worth it!
This wine ships to: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, KS, LA, MA, MD, ME, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK (newly added), OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI and WY. In addition, once the deal ends and the orders are consolidated, we have now moved to 2 day shipping for the summer (for just $10) to minimize heat exposure.
This is a limited time, winery direct offer facilitated by our friends at Wine Country Connect. Sale ends Tuesday 6/2 at noon (PST) unless it sells out sooner. 2 Day shipping is a flat $10 no matter how many 3-packs you buy! Clicking on the buy button above will take you to the site winedealmaker.com for checkout. If you don't see the embedded buy box click here to order. The wines will still ship 5-7 days after the conclusion of the offer but they will go via 2 day shipping at that point.
The WineSmith Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Clone 15 and Clone 4) from the Diamond Ridge Vineyard at 2,000 feet of altitude in Clear Lake, Lake County. The wine was aged an incredible 60 months (5 years!) in 20 year-old neutral French oak barrels.
From the bottle:
Black cherry, cocoa and sweet anise characters typify Diamond Ridge's high and stony volcanic soils, which impart fresh minerality and surprisingly longevity. Picked at perfect maturity and developed over 60 months in neutral French oak, its moderate alcohol and classic balance promise to reward further cellaring, Seductive aromas, solid tannins, and a profound and lasting finish make it the perfect accompaniment to grilled tri-tip or steak bearnaise.
We Smiths offer you skillfully crafted wines that explore traditions beyond the mainstream.
The 2013 WineSmith Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a beautiful aroma of black cherry, spice and touches of vanilla and cedar. Like most of Clark's wines this one just keeps getting better the more air it has and a little time in the glass cranks things up a notch with some lovely additional spice notes.
As good as that aroma is, it's a whole 'nother level when tasting as this wine just explodes with rich and super savory flavors in your mouth. Delicious right out of the bottle or even more so after a good decant, it will also age very capably for at least another decade. This wine is just so dynamic and generous in the mouth that it's hard to even describe.
It ends dry, grippy and very long and is loaded with lively mineral notes under the long lasting fruit. A perfect 10 Taste Rating for this one. 5 years in barrel does a Cabernet good!
