Mission Briefing

Codename:

Cali Grooves

We love the wines of Andy Phipps. So do our Operatives… Last time we featured one, we sold out quickly.

Today’s California Wine Co. 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a Super QPR, budget-priced marvel that drinks way above its price class, delivering a delicious and elegant drinking experience that rivals more expensive Cabs.

Plenty of fruit, earth and spice penetrate deep into the nose, with aromas of black cherry, blackberry jam, blueberry compote, smoky strawberry, cigar box, sweet brown spice and a hint of graphite.

On the palate, the wine has a juicy entry, with black cherry, blackberry juice, blueberry, leather, cigar box, sweet spice and a hint of black pepper.

Enjoy this very food-friendly wine with a wide variety of pairing choices. Grilled meats are an obvious choice, as is spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, roast pork loin and so many other dishes, from everyday fare to the ultra-posh.

We offer this low-priced gem with our very boldest recommendation. This wine is a value-priced steal!


Remember, we offer FREE Temperature-Controlled shipping during the hot summer months. Add optional ice packs if your local area is hot, and your wine will arrive in great condition!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Gemlike ruby hues, from glinting core to slightly darker heart. Tall, skinny, closely-spaced tears meander slowly down the glass wall after a hearty swirl.

Smell:

Black cherry, blackberry jam, blueberry compote, smoky strawberry, cigar box, sweet brown spice and a hint of graphite.

Taste:

Black cherry, blackberry juice, blueberry, leather, cigar box, sweet spice and a hint of black pepper.

Finish:

Juicy on entry, then the wine goes plush and grippy as crushed velvet tannins add a spreading dryness around the entire palate, eventually drying the lips and cheeks.

Pairing:

Enjoy this lovely wine with grilled meats, backyard BBQ or even a big plate of spaghetti with meatballs. We’re going to grill up some New York steaks with ours!
