Let’s Be Honest…Sometimes You Buy For The Label
We know you are a fan of our Best-Selling “IF YOU SEE KAY” Red Wine (you were on our list of purchasers) and even though the wine tastes fantastic, we know you are a huge fan of the label as well. Don’t get me wrong, it’s what is in the bottle that really matters but a great label can help seal the deal! So that said, I have a fun little new wine out of Paso Robles of which there were only TWO pallets for Northern California available for purchase of which we secured 35 cases! What’s the wine?
2012 Chronic Cellars “Sofa King Bueno” Red Wine (Paso Robles) $22/bottle or $18.99/bottle on 6+
Chronic Cellars was the brainchild of Paso Robles natives Josh and Jake Beckett. The term “The Chronic” was something the brothers used casually to describe likeable objects and after time the name stuck for this purpose and the thought of wine and a casual lifestyle.
After a 10 year stint at Peachy Canyon winery and immersing themselves in every aspect of the business, the Beckett brothers released their first vintage of Chronic Cellars in 2008. Today, they produce over 12 different wines including their best-selling “Sofa King Bueno” Red Wine. Read it out loud, now again. Get it?
This wine good…very good and for all Paso Robles fruit and limited production you be hard pressed to find something as bueno for the dinero! The “Sofa King” is 43% Syrah, 32% Petite Sirah, 11% Mourvedre, 8% Grenache & 6% Tannat. As the Beckett Boys say “The Rhone King! We take the best of the best, carefully blend them together – and you get Sofa King Bueno.”
The wine itself is inky dark, almost black with a bounty of blustering red fruits exploding from you r glass. Savory, yet alive with full, rich tannins to finish it off!
This wine is sure to run out, but like I said we have 420 bottles so get yours today!
