2016 The Withers Rosé (El Dorado)Withers.113940

$21.95/bottle or $18.95/bottle on 6+

Winery Tasting Notes:
“Our 2016 Rose is a dead ringer for a classic Bandol, highlighted by the color, flavors and aromas of apricot, cherry, watermelon rind nectarine and peach. The wine is buttressed by strong balancing acidity, with excellent tension and lift over its medium bodied, layered and textured frame. Balanced and elegant, it is best served at cellar temperature and can be paired with oysters, shellfish, seafood, pasta and fowl. It will be enjoyable immediately on release but should improve in bottle for 3-5 years.”

82% Mourvèdre, 12% Syrah, 6% Grenache
“This medium bodied, beautifully balanced wine is reminiscent of dried herbs, saline, leather and cassis on the nose. The fruit is in perfect harmony with the sweet tannins that give this blend its backbone. Crystalline flavors of purple flowers, delicate leather and game soar out of the glass and will provide both near and long term drinking pleasure.”

Why DAOU?!?

 

Because, DAOU Vineyards produces some of the best wines from Paso Robles…BAR NONE!!!  The estate is situated high atop Adelaida Road conducive to producing impeccable cabernet sauvignon that rivals Napa Valley.  DAOU was once home to the legendary Hoffman Ranch where winemaking pioneer André Tchelistcheff, who perhaps best-known for his creation of Georges de Latour Private Reserve label, recognized this land as something truly unique.  Today, the DAOU estate is widely considered to be the birthplace of winemaking in Paso Robles.

Wine Advocate -93 Points

 Tasting Notes:  “There’s roughly a thousand cases of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, and this 100% Cabernet offers full-bodied, ripe and voluptuous notes of creme de cassis, black currants, coffee beans and ample sweet oak. It has a serious, tightly wound and tannic feel, and will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and have 10-15 years of overall longevity.”

Cheers,
Jay

Today’s Deal ~ 2013 Curvature Cabernet Sauvignon

$54.95/bottle or CLICK HERE FOR SPECIAL OFFER!!!

 

011-Curvature-2013_CabSau-750ml-Copy1

BIRDIE!!!

Is what we scored by bringing this Spring Mountain gem to Carpe Vino! That’s right…our newest steed in our venerable wine stable is the 2013 Curvature Cabernet Sauvignon.  The Curvature Wines were started as a collaboration of professional golfer Christie Kerr and Pride Mountain Vineyard co-owner Suzanne Pride Bryan.  The impetus behind this BEAUTIFUL and ELEGANT wine was for these two professionals to not only produce a sensational cabernet from one of THE prime spots in all of Napa Valley, but also make a wine that would benefit breast cancer research.  BUT…this wine is just not to promote philanthropic endeavors. The 2013 Curvature Cabernet Sauvignon is only available in select fine restaurants and establishments in all the US, and has the pedigree to back it up!!! Small production and retailing for $70/bottle at the winery, Carpe Vino secured a sweet deal on a SPECIAL SIX BOTTLE + DISCOUNT (CLICK HERE).

Why THIS Cabernet?!?

 

This answer is two-fold.  The 2013 Curvature Cabernet Sauvignon is produced and bottled at the acclaimed Pride Mountain Vineyards atop Spring Mountain.  Made by esteemed winemaker Sally Johnson, who has been at the helm of Pride Mountain for over 7 years, is churning out killer wines that consistently score well into the 90’s and have achieved scores as high as 95 points from the Wine Advocate.  In addition, Pride Mountain is ranked by Robert Parker as one of the Top 100 wineries in the World and with our SPECIAL OFFER, you won’t find a better deal anywhere!!!

Winery Tasting Notes:  “2013 is widely considered to be one of the greatest vintages that California has produced, and our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold example of the intensity and concentration that this vintage has to offer. Three years of drought created ideal conditions for wine production, with tiny berries stuffed with flavor and tannins, producing a wine that is nearly black in color and that coats the mouth with its incredible flavor.”

Napa Valley
78.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 1.5% Petite Sirah
Whole berries cold-soaked and then fermented in a single stainless steel vat for 18 days
Aged 24 months in French oak barrels, 70% new
Alcohol: 14.5%

Today’s Deal ~ 2016 “The Withers” Rosé

$21.95/btl or $18.50/btl on 6+!

 

Withers

Bone-Dry…Not Sweet!

Back in early January, when the rain was dropping inches by-the-hour, our “sourcing team” was sitting down with Andrew Tow, owner of “The Withers” and tasting one of the best Bandol-style Rosé’s YET to hit the Californian wine market.  Tow and winemaker David Low, co-owner & winemaker of esteemed Anthill Farms Winery have been absolutely tearing up the wine world since launching this label back in 2013.  From the beginning, the backbone of the project relied on Tow & Low’s access to Chardonnay & Pinot from the Sonoma Coast.  Now they have expanded by producing this single Rosé and three different Rhone blends all from contracted and/or their own vineyards in EL DORADO COUNTY.

We knew we were tasting greatness with the 2016 “The Withers” Rose (61% Mourvedre & 49% Grenache), so we shook hands w/ Andrew and locked up a half-pallet to be delivered as soon as it was released.   Until late last year, The Withers was never available for distribution outside of the eastern seaboard.  Once it hit Californian distribution, the 2015 Rosé had long been “SOLD OUT” since its April release (sold out in one month).  Lucky for CV, one or our “MVR’s” or “Most Valuable Reps” had a sample and gave us exclusive access to taste it. HANDS DOWN one of my favorite Rosés of the year and when we had the chance to taste the 2016 in person with Mr. Tow, well, we weren’t going to let this baby slip away!

Why THIS Rosé?!?

This is a simple answer…WHY NOT?  This much-anticipated seasonal release is sure to be “sold out” as quick or quicker than last year (one month).  After 15 years, we recognize when we have a truly special wine in our shop and it makes us proud to be able to offer it today to you!  Secure your 6pk now…you’ll be not only thanking us but asking for more later!

What is a Rosé?

A rosé (from French rosé; also known as rosado in Portugal and Spanish-speaking countries and rosato in Italy) is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale “onion-skin” orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the varietals used and winemaking techniques. There are three major ways to produce rosé wine: skin contact, saignée, and blending. Rosé wines can be made still, semi-sparkling or sparkling and with a wide range of sweetness levels from highly dry Provençal rosé to sweet White Zinfandels and blushes. Rosé wines are made from a wide variety of grapes and can be found all around the globe. – wikipedia

You Keep Saying BANDOL-style?

Bandol rosés are enchanting. Their roundness and generosity make them different from other rosé wines. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault combine to give, by direct-pressing, a well-built, refined, pale-colored wine with delicate salmon hues. With all the subtle shades that enhance their color, Bandol rosés whole-heartedly express the specific characteristics of their terroir. They are to be enjoyed in their youth when their great freshness is most captivating; however, the presence of Mourvèdre brings out their typicity and encourages laying them down, as is the rule for red wines. Long-lived rosés acquire exceptional temperament and flavors. They are served at the most renowned tables; their complexity allows a great variety in food pairings.  - bandolwines.net
