Last December, the Carpe Vino Wine Club faithful received a “Prisoner-esque” red wine for their shipment called the 2012 Coup de Grâce Red . The wine received so much fanfare that we loaded up on it again and offered blockbuster deal back in January that saved you over 24%! Well, the 2012 vintage is coming to an end and the wine is switching suppliers. So, we took another FIFTEEN cases, and here is the last shot in attaining this delicious wine for $22.50/bottle on six +. A mere 50% less than the big name juggernaut!
The 2012 Coup de Grâce Red is crafted by celebrated Lodi Winemaker Adam Mettler of Michael David Winery and Mettler Family Vineyards. The goal was to produce a bodacious red blend that is designed to go after the big guys with its bold, killer flavors. It is comprised of 64% zinfandel, 19% petite sirah, 11% petit verdot, and 6% cabernet franc. All the grapes are sourced from some of the most distinguished vineyards in Lodi, Russian River Valley, Yountville, and Atlas Peak.
The result is a BIG, HEAVY wine but it’s not over-the-top. In the glass you’re allured by the DEEP PURPLISH INKY hue and the bouquet of BRIGHT RED BERRIES. On the palate is where this beast of wine truly delivers with FULL BODIED FLAVORS of BLACKBERRY and BAKING SPICES. True to its namesake, this wine is not for the meek but is for anyone who likes a GOOD, INTENSE red wine.
To secure this special discounted price for our Wine Club (lowest anywhere in CA) we had to take more than we needed, and we’re glad we did. It’s been a good run but all good things must come to an end. So, commit a “coup de grâce” on the BUY NOW button and order up this sumptuously flavored red for half the cost of those other big brand names.
