You’ve heard us say in the past that a wine completely floored our tasting panel, but how often does a wine completely WOW every person in the office? I’ve certainly never seen the Inventory and Accounting team agree! It’s sort of like a solar eclipse for wine and we were lucky enough to experience this event just a short time ago. Now we have the pleasure of offering this wine to our most valued Wine Express customers!
This is a ridiculously delicious, lush yet refined Old Vine Zinfandel hailing from the Calistoga region of Napa Valley. With its high temps, cool nights, notorious volcanic soil and old vines up to 115 years of age, Calistoga is home to some of the best Zins in the entire California wine region. With names like Chateau Montelena, Tofanelli and Storybook Mountain all producing Zin from these famed vineyards, you know this is the place to be for Zin! The difference is with this Zin, you won’t have to break the bank to enjoy some top quality juice! It hails from the epic 2013 vintage and is the kind of wine you will certainly love now, but it will even benefit from a few years of cellaring… if you have the will power to keep from opening every last bottle!
Century Old Vine Zin of this quality typically retails for $40+ but at under $20 a bottle by the Case (yes, you read that correctly!) you can enjoy this delight of a wine right now as well as lay some down for future enjoyment. The downside? Unfortunately like many of these too good to be true deals, there wasn’t much of it for us to scoop up. So be sure and keep an eye on out for this deal coming to your inbox tomorrow morning because the last time we offered a deal this big we sold out in hours!
Update: It was the Gait 2013 Zinfandel, Napa Valley! Over 40% Off by the case while it lasts!
