Finally, BLACK FRIDAY is here!!!

Goats are like mushrooms, if you shoot a duck, I’m afraid of toasters.

Some things just don’t make sense.

Like that famous saying that we just made up.

Or this crazy Oakville Cabernet deal.

Because last time we checked, the going rate for Oakville Cab was around $75-100. On the low end. And the sky’s the limit from there.

So, it was a total no-brainer when we landed this beauty for a massive 70% off dropping the price from $95 to $29.

After all, you know we had to hit you with a truly spellbinding deal today, right?

When this first hit our lips, the effects were immediate. Pupils dilated. Oxytocin unlocked. LOVE at first sip. Rich and powerful, inky. Blackberry and torrefaction, black cherry liqueur and spicy oak, and some toasted caramel too. Fine-grained tannins carry a long finish. Like an everlasting gobstopper of flavor densely packed together, and everything you want in a big ol’ Napa Cabernet.

Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised at the quality. Oakville has been hailed as the “go-to address for California Cabernet,” by Wine Enthusiast with wines that “reign supreme” in Napa. You already knew that, no doubt. This comes from a small project without much fanfare, and the sources of the vineyards have been locked away in Fort Knox secrecy. No doubt the big players there like Far Niente, Paradigm, Harlan and so on want to keep it that way…

Make it yours - but don’t delay because we’re pretty sure this won’t last the day. Fill up those Lockers, and then ship them ASAP. When this lands on your doorstep you’ll be feeling like a five-year-old on Christmas morning.
