California: Napa Valley: Oakville
Fit for a Spy
Welcome to another Super Spy Sunday, where each Sunday we showcase a beautiful luxury wine - and offer it up to our Operatives at an extraordinary price. Today’s 90 point (Wine Enthusiast Magazine) Oakville Red is yours at a whopping 60% off.
We’re so lucky to have such a close relationship with our friends at Grand Napa. Their wines are highly allocated, but they love us so much that they reserve a small quantity of their wines, solely for our Operatives.
Today’s Grand Napa Wine 2013 Oakville Red Wine is juicy, balanced and deeeeeelicious blend that is a true Ultra QPR steal at today’s special price. The finish is super elegant, with flavors that go on and on forever.
Dark and boldly fragrant, with aromas of blackberry compote, spiced cherry, leather, tobacco, chocolate covered cherry, baking spice, cured beef, softly toasted oak and subtle graphite.
On the palate, this wine is at once juicy and very earthy, with bold black cherry, blackberry, black currant, plum, grilled blueberry, cured beef, leather, spice box and pencil shavings.
This wine is highly recommended. Reserve yours now before it’s all gone!
Here’s what the wine press has to say:
90 points - Wine Enthusiast
Darkest garnet, with a ring of mahogany that encircles the glass.
Blackberry compote, spiced cherry, leather, tobacco, chocolate covered cherry, baking spice, cured beef, softly toasted oak and subtle graphite.
Black cherry, blackberry, black currant, plum, grilled blueberry, cured beef, leather, spice box and pencil shavings.
Soft and elegant on entry, then the wine becomes grippy and drying, especially at the center of the palate. Plush tannins give the wine a really elegant overall feel.
Steaks, steaks and steaks. ‘Nuff said!
