DEAL 6!  Only 4 Days ’til THANKSGIVING!


FERRIS BUELLER ONCE SAID, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”  Basically, keep reading this email so you don’t miss the BEST $-4-$ WINE being offered during our “9-Days of Deals!”

As you know, life is about TIMING, which is also true when looking for great wines at great prices.  Two weeks ago, one of our most trusted brokers called and said, “HEY, CV CREW…I have 14 cases left of this Pico & Vine Meritage and for the price…it’s really, really, good!”  We trust this rep implicitly because he was one of the first brokers through our doors in 2002 and has NEVER, EVER steered us wrong.  He will also tell you when something isn’t good and that’s difficult to find in a salesperson.  WE SNAGGED IT and liked it well enough for a future wine club selection, but unfortunately/fortunately we needed more than 14 cases.

OKAY – stay with us here.  PICO & VINE doesn’t have a winery/tasting room its actually considered a “CONTROL BRAND” which by definition is “where a wine supplier owns and controls the brand but dedicates it to a specific retail account.”  This control brand (Pico & Vine) is produced by a contracted company, in this case Purple Wine + Spirits, whom is responsible for everything from vineyard-to-bottle.  Now, Purple Wine + Spirits is a LEGIT PRODUCER and have helped produce and grow brands you are VERY FAMILIAR with including; FOUR VINES, SCATTERED PEAKS, AVALON, RAEBURN and CALISTA to name a few.  What this means is that Pico & Vine has outstanding fruit sourced for this bottle – along with a talented team of winemakers crafting the wine.  Take out the cost of huge winery facility, tasting room, yada-yada-yada and this my friend is why you are getting a HIGH-QUALITY MERITAGE for under 15 BUCKS.  Like we said before, only 14 cases available…so click here to purchase.

 • ALC: 14.5%

Tasting Notes: “Meritage wines are crafted solely from specific “noble” Bordeaux grape varieties. Pico & Vine is a Merlot led blend that opens with aromas of black cherry, plum and blueberry. Flavors of black fruit abound along with hints of vanilla and cedar. Tannins are firm yet supple while the finish is lingering and dry. Food pairing Enjoy with aged cheddar or Gruyere cheese, rib eye steak or hearty tomato-sauce based dishes.”
