Ravenswood Winery 2012 Rancho Salina Vineyards Sonoma Valley Cabernet Blend

Half off Cab Blend
Wine Spies Exclusive!

Mission Codename Only you...

WHOA!

Save your celebrating for after you’ve grabbed a case of today’s online exclusive from our good friends at Ravenswood. Wait too long and we will be sold out. Normally a wine available only direct from the winery, The Wine Spies proudly has exclusivity to bring today’s delectably impressive Cab Blend at HALF OFF & FREE SHIPPING ON 4+.

How did we get our hands on this? We could tell you but, you know…

So, how is the wine? It’s love at first sight with a dense dark red blend that coats the edge of the glass and holds on tight. “Hello, Beautiful!” A spicy, clean and fresh bouquet greets you with notes of plum, sandalwood, raspberry, nutmeg, and vanilla bean. The palate is even lusher with juicy cherry and boysenberry, milk chocolate, toasty coffee, and black currant. The highest accolades are awarded to the mouthfeel, with silky smooth tannins that gracefully coat the palate and provides excellent structure for this sophisticated blend. As for food pairings, this robust treat would be great with a steak. For the ultimate experience, enjoy it with a nice rare Filet Mignon.

Agent Red once asked Ravenswood’s winemaker, Joel Peterson what his winemaking philosophy was. His answer: “Wines should reflect the flavors of the places that they were grown. Wine should taste like fruit, not oak. Wine should be balanced, rich, and complex and interesting. The best wines are the ones that develop well with age.”

“To that end, we attempt to let each vineyard express its optimal character by using winemaking techniques and careful attention to detail that dwells on each vineyard’s particular strengths. Our mantra is “no wimpy wines”, meaning that we want each wine we have to exhibit strength of character, not merely power.”

Thanks, Joel. We love you.
