2012 Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Valley
The Real Deal
Deerfield Ranch Winery returns as our Black Friday super-deal for the third year in a row. Our agents made it their mission to secure a covert connection for the biggest shopping day of the year: Wine Spies’ Operatives are the first to be able to get their hands on this long-awaited wine.
Bright cherry, boysenberry are accompanied tart stone fruit reveal layers of plum. A garden herb character adds complexity to hold your interest. Characteristic to Deerfield wines is a soft tannin structure with a round mouthfeel that coats the palate, particularly the sides of the tongue, before crescendoing long after the initial sip. While Cabernet is the dominant player, the Malbec shines through with its black cherry notes. The Syrah that’s been added makes an appearance too, with a discernible white pepper nuance.
Deerfield has been a stalwart winery ally over the years, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our Operatives a Black Friday deal that they will not be able to find anywhere else. Robert Rex’s wines are always balanced, smooth and relatably delicious, which is why we’re always glad to be able to bring them our Operatives.
Deep and dark garnet with a line of pure crimson around the outer edge.

Calls for a savory dish that can stand up to the bright acid. Try a winter beef stew, Osso buco or cioppino.
