Today’s Deal ~ 2013 Clayhouse “Red Cedar Vineyard” Petit Verdot
$40/bottle or $24.95/bottle on 6+!
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeey Batter, batter, batter, sssssssswing batter! He can’t hit, he can’t hit, he can hit, ssssssssssswing batter! Sorry Ferris Bueller fans, he CAN hit! I’m talking about Winemaker Blake Kuhn with his 2013 Clayhouse Petit Verdot from Red Cedar Vineyard in Paso Robles. He not only hit it, but he KNOCKED it out of the park! FREAKISHLY INSANE GORGEOUS dark inky hues, BUNDLES of LUSCIOUS black fruits, and FULL-BODIED flavors that will have you wondering if anyone got the license plate number of that bus! Even more cool is that rarely do you see petit verdot as a stand-alone varietal. Typically, you see it as the “secret sauce” to crank up Bordeaux blends but this baby is almost all PV. Super small in production, only 62 cases, this is a true DIAMOND-IN-THE-ROUGH! When we caught wind that only 29 cases were left at the winery we knew we had to snag it all. Now, we are down to less than EIGHT cases and then it’s gone for good! We slashed the winery retail by over 37% making it a SURE-FIRE can’t miss for a JUICY, DRINK, and LOVE it right now PALATE-PLEASER!!!

WINERY TASTING NOTES: “Deep dark purple (near black) color. Aromas of violets and lavender, lead pencil, sweet cigar-leaf, balsamic, soy and black cherry.

The wine has big but polished sweet tannins and finishes with notes of dark-roasted espresso coffee beans.”
