New Year’s Eve?!… how did we get here??

What an amazing year it was thanks to YOU. From the bottom of our glass to the bottom of your glass, we THANK YOU for being a part of this awesome ride. Can’t wait to level up again in 2022!!

But today, to cap off this incredible year we’re sending it with a SUPREME value, ultra-crowd-pleasing Cabernet for FIFTEEN DOLLARS.

Sweet, juicy, and utterly delicious. Loaded with…CHERRY JOLLY RANCHER? Luxardo cherries? Strawberry licorice? It’s all in there. Maybe some grenadine, too. YUP. Rich and round, mouthcoating layers of dark red cherry liqueur, raspberry jam, cocoa dust, and vanilla cola swell from the glass. A total face-ripper that’s a blast to drink without a care in the world. It’s not a bruiser, or an uber concentrated style Cabernet. More of a medium-bodied tipple but still percolating with all sorts of deliciousness. Simply put, if you like ripe, red fruit in your glass this is the one.

Wine Enthusiast points out that “Parducci continues to make remarkably good wines at fair prices out of its sustainably farmed, carbon-neutral Mendocino outpost” which is the wild west of California wine country and Parducci is one of the oldest wineries around… for 3 generations the Thornhills have been there, making great wines, and taking great care in a sustainable way that cares for the land.

Got a few slots in a Locker? Fill ‘er up and ship it out for the new year!

Rooster Cogburn put it best in True Grit, Coen brothers’ epic 2010 masterpiece “I don’t need to buy that, I confiscate it. I’m an officer of the court!”

You’ll wish you bought more of this one.

92 Points – Anthony Dias Blue

“Smooth, deep, and juicy with tangy plum and soft spice; medium weight, generous and dense, long and balanced from this historic winery.”
