This is an absolute SLAM DUNK of a WINE DEAL today. Last weekend, we officially introduced our new “2nd Saturday” Wine Tasting & Club Pick-Up, for our wine club membership (click here to read more). Both November & December we offered a “soft opening” version of this new format and the response was overwhelmingly positive. On Saturday, we were pouring FIVE different Argentinian wines to our wine club membership from 2-4pm. The attendance was so high, we had poured ALL 15 BOTTLES in 45 MINUTES!!! YIKES!
With so much wine ordered over the holidays and WINE THING (click here to read more) less than TWO weeks away, we must be very cautious bringing too much inventory into CV. Judging the attendance of our previous tastings, we thought we had plenty of wine to taste, with only pre-orders being taken that day. BOY…were we wrong.
We are a solution-oriented business and we quickly found another four wines to substitute and quench all those thirsty tasters’ palates. The wine pictured above, the 2016 Hess Collection “Allomi” Cabernet Sauvignon was one of those wines AND PEOPLE LOVED IT! In fact, it was one of the best-selling wines of the day!
Many of you are familiar with Hess wines, and well, they’re generally a fantastic wine. The problem for us, is the sheer volume of wine they produce can make it hard for us to compete on pricing. That said, every year, without a doubt, we find a way to structure a score, so everyone can be a WINNER. Today, it’s your turn with the 2016 Hess Collection “Allomi” Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley, CA). While product lasts, you can save nearly 25% while receiving the lowest price (online in CA) when purchasing six-bottles or more. Here is what you need to know:

“Our Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon offers distinct notes of vanilla and oak spice with classic red fruit flavors set off by currant and blackberry along with moderate, well-integrated tannins showing a round, plush mouthfeel.”
From The Winemaker: Dave Guffy
“Our Allomi Vineyard enjoys a bit of heat, which is just the thing for Cabernet Sauvignon. While Pope Valley is less well known than some other Napa AVAs, the combination of steady heat and well-drained clay loam soils allows fruit to ripen evenly, gaining welcomed complexity and layers of flavor. We consistently see beautiful yields from the Allomi Vineyard, and 2016 was no different. On the nose, this wine delivers intriguing vegetal aromas with hints of mushroom and forest floor. On the palate, Allomi Cabernet is known to deliver moderate, well-integrated tannins and a round, plush mouthfeel making it one of our most popular Napa offerings. A wonderful brightness of raspberry and red plum delight the mid-palate, and these flavors are supported by a subtle oak spice that adds to the personality of the wine.”
