There’s nuthin’ Santa Gary loves more than going “Rogue.” Since the days when he was a youngster cleaning reindeer stalls, Big Jolly has made it his life’s work to break the rules. . .and he’s doing it big time with this deal (I just love writing in the third person. . .there’s something regal about it):
Santa Gary has just acquired 11 cases of the 90-point (Wine Enthusiast) 2012 Ancient Peaks “Renegade” Red Blend (Margarita Vineyard, Paso Robles) priced at a whopping 33% off winery retail of $24 per bottle. Promise Santa Gary you’ll purchase at least six bottles, and take all you can carry for $15.99 each. Even K&L doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in Tahiti of beating this deal (this box store charges $18.99 per pop).
Do Santa Gary a solid and don’t gloat to your peeps about the stewpid deal you scored. This is a year-end, one-time purchase that has as much a chance of being repeated as Donald Trump has to be elected president of these United States (okay, how many customers did that just cost me?).
Red blends are on top of Santa Gary’s list of go-to wines, and Ancient Peaks does an amazing job of working the magic in the barrel room. The ’12 Renegade is a ready-to-drink stunner, and it should be your house wine for the holidays.
Wine Enthusiast Review (90 points): “Cooked cherries in vanilla butter, just-pressed espresso, chopped dill and a hint of tar decorate the nose of this blend from a unique vineyard atop the Cuesta Grade. Black licorice, dark blackberries, rustic elderberries and a cedar-y, asphalt-laden grip power the palate.”
Winery Tasting Notes: “Offers lavish black fruit aromas with notes of wet stone and savory smokiness. A juicy, mouth-filling texture delivers robust flavors of plum, cassis and boysenberry with hints of cocoa and white pepper. Power yields to elegance on the finish, concluding with fine tannins and focused structure.”
Blend: 71% syrah; 24% Malbec; 5% petit verdot
Cases produced: 4,430
Winemakers: Mike Sinor and Stewart Cameron
Winery Price: $24
Santa Gary is a bit weary after pulling all of these deals together. So give the Old Man a break, and do the right thing. . .buy some wine. Just give the “Buy Now” button a tap and you’re on you way to six bottles of Joy to the World.
Santa Gary, of course!
