CULT WINERIES RELEASE RARE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE THEIR WINES

It’s no secret that a few wineries that are in cult status make other wines that are much less expensive but nonetheless from the same vineyard and winemaker.  This is their opportunity to connect with customers that enjoy great wines but do not want to necessarily spend hundreds per bottle.  Due to the limited production only a select number of retailers in the country have access to these wines and we are honored to be one of those few.

CHECKERBOARD 2016 “IMPETUOUS” Diamond Mountain Napa Valley CABERNET SAUVIGNON

The source of Impetuous is Checkerboard Vineyards, a 300-acre wine estate in Napa Valley that spans one entire, undivided mountainside. The estate and its four small vineyards, planted among the woods and at varying elevations, are the inspiration for a singular wine that represents the mountain and its soils. Impetuous is handmade at Checkerboard from the same wine lots of the three single vineyard wines that sell for over $300 each and produced for their acclaimed portfolio and blended to be enjoyed without the need for decanting or aging.
Less than 300 cases produced. The winemaker is Martha McClellan of Harlan, Sloan, Blankiet, Levy & McClellan and Vineyard 7 & 8 fame.

2016 Impetuous is the color of summer-ripened cherries and boysenberries and smells of deep red fruits, vanilla, cocoa powder, violets, and cinnamon. On the palate, the wine has a silky texture and is equally packed with power and finesse. It is balanced without effort and rewards with an ample finish. Give yourself permission to open a bottle on Taco Tuesday as a reminder that more time should be spent being this spontaneous. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot & 5% Cabernet Franc.  SPECIAL PRICING $79.95…while it lasts.
