2013 Sonoma Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Valley
Today’s your lucky day. It took wheeling. It took dealing. It took begging and pleading. But we’re not above that when it comes to securing some Reserve Deerfield Cab for our Operatives. When we ran this bad boy back almost a year ago, 100 cases disappeared in a flash.
If you’re a newer Operative, you might not know what the hype is about. In case you don’t, hit that buy button right now before you miss your chance to find out why Deerfield is one of our top selling wineries of all time. This is an exclusive offer of a Deerfield Reserve that you won’t find anywhere else. We’re not telling you how we landed it, but some quick googling of the family behind Deerfield might clue you in.
That’s right - This is the first ever Reserve Sonoma Valley Cabernet. Winemaker Robert Rex typically reserves that moniker for his vineyard designate Cabs. But this monster combines the best of vineyards in their line up, Ivy Glen and Amaro Vineyard and was so delicious it earned Deerfield’s top honors. A little bird told us that it spent a jaw-dropping SIX YEARS in the barrels! Whoa… the results speak for themselves. Smooth like Barry White, rich like Warren Buffet, it’s a wine that moonwalks all over your mouth with incredible lushness.
Deepest ruby imaginable, impenetrable to the light in its core, with a slither of a garnet halo. Despite the years, it’s still youthful and vibrant on the nose with incredibly lush blackberries, blueberries, violets. HUGE, opulent, sweetly fruited on the palate too, in an irresistible style with a lead pencil minerality emerging. A sensational finale that has sweet, soft, but present tannins, with no hard edges, and great, great muscle. Clearly a joy to drink now yet will keep for another decade or two, or enjoy with a rare steak.
Did we mention that we scored a exclusive of this wine! It hasn’t seen the light of day since we dragged it out of Deerfield’s enormous wine cave and you will not find it anywhere else. We practically had to take hostages to get the few cases of it that we did, so don’t wait!
