Mission Codename We have no choice

Rejoice! Rejoice!

We have a spectacular deal on an even more spectacular wine, the bright and beautifully balanced Watkins Family Winery 2010 Bugay Vineyard Sonoma County Cabernet Franc.

Winemaker Randall Watkins who also makes Bugay’s popular wines, made this must-have gem. We really really love this wine!

As the proprietor and winemaker of his namesake winery, Randall Watkins is charged with overseeing every aspect of the winery’s business. This meticulous attention to detail is clearly visible in his winemaking practices as well, with deliberate thought and care given to each step of the process.

The resulting wine is bursting with flavor, with an elegant balance of fruit, structure, and tannin. We particularly enjoyed the balanced and bold flavors in today’s delicious and - ridiculously well priced wine.

Exceptionally aromatic, with bold scents of black cherry, blackberry, dried violets, campfire smoke, baker’s chocolate, dried fall leaves, plum, spice box and a hint of cracked pepper.

Dark and packed with flavors of grilled cherry, dried violets, dusty bramble, smoky black cherry, blackberry juice, dried fall leaves, black tea leaf, spice box and a hint of kola nut.

Reserve yours now, or this highly recommended wine may be gone.
