Mission Codename Interstellar
Some collaborations just hit different. We don’t mean Nelly x Tim Mcgraw. More Like Santana x Rob Thomas. Or Doritos and Taco Bell.
Or this otherworldly, one-of-a-kind red blend. Galaxy comes from three winemaking forces from the Terlato family. Elizabeth Vianna of Chimney Rock comes in hot with the Cabernet. Marisa Taylor Rutherford Hill winery brings the bangin’ Merlot. And Bryan Parker of Alder Ridge comes with the souped-up Dry Creek Syrah.
Truly a vinous Greatest Hits compilation unlike any other, with zero skip tracks in there.
And we bring you the solar smashing price - WAY under the $100 it originally warranted.
So, we have a trio of rockstar wine people bringing their best fruit to the table. And the gorgeous packaging sure stands out – who’s not a sucker for a that silk screen. But we’re not here for the name dropping, or the lovely bottle design. You want to know what’s INSIDE the Galaxy.
Seamless and so, SO soft in the mouth. Like pure velvet. Or the bottom of a baby’s foot. Your favorite chinchilla. In a lineup of over two dozen wines (including some heavy-hitting $100-200 Cabs), this was a standout thanks to the beautiful texture and plush mid-palate. Anchored by the Stags Leap Cabernet which adds the heft, and rounded out by the Merlot and Syrah, it shows a long line of black fruit, pencil lead, black cherry, cassis, black pepper, and molasses. All carefully joined together with no hard edge whatsoever. Pure bliss on your tongue.
At this price? You gotta be kidding… the stash is small sadly, so run, don’t walk.
Dark garnet with ruby highlights, vivid and vibrant, with crimson and purple in there too

A fantastic red at peak to sip on its own, it also has the heft to enhance many rich dishes
