Wine of the Month (while supplies last):
Forgive me if I use a lot of exclamation points, but I am really excited about Cruse Wine Co.’s 2013 Valdiguié from Rancho Chimiles Vineyard, Napa Valley, California.
This wine is unreal! A mind-bending take on what has become a more common varietal! This is not a carbonic, fruity, Gamay-like version. Cruse pulled all the sensual, silky, seamless, subtle, creamy texture out of the grape while respecting the enticing spice aromatics. This isn’t just that cool-kids-lesser-known-wine-grape wine; it’s knock-your-socks-off good red wine! But here’s the kicker: it was a tiny production to boot and we got the last 1.5 cases. So, get it while you can!
It’s on our shelves for $25.99!
