How amazing would it be to have the best of the best of Cabernet from across the entire world, all at once?

Even better – how amazing would it be to taste two-thirds of Bordeaux’s Grand Cru Classe wines, all at once? Take a look below, I think you’ll agree, the list is impressive and offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience in tasting Bordeaux.

But it gets better as we go further than just Bordeaux. If you like Napa Cabernet, Sonoma, Bolgheri, Margaret River or even places farther afield – we’ve got it, and we will be pouring it.

Truly, what we have stacked up for you in terms of Cabernet-based wines is some of the best of the best in the world. And not only that, but for a mere $30 (which can be credited towards a purchase) you get to taste them all at once.

The Cabernet Festival was always a revelatory experience, and now it’s even more amazing. Come early, stay late, but whatever you do, mark your calendars – this one is not to miss.

2013 Dusted Valley Columbia Valley Cabernet

In Cabernet on December 8, 2016 at 4:54 pm

dvThere is a purity of fruit from these own-rooted Cabernet vines that you get from nowhere else. The depth of black cherry, crème de cassis, blackberry, and espresso is utterly sensational; it’s like diving into your favorite red leather couch, finding the added bonus of a Snuggie right beside – layers of cozy warmth and copious luxury. The flavors carry through on the palate with a seamless drinkability and voluptuous, full-bodied texture that plays on a whole new level.

The 2013 Cabernet is effortlessly drinkable now but will continue to age in your cellar for the next 20 years. Please contact us for pricing and availability: sommelier@waterfordwine.com or 414-289-9463.

2011 Tollot-Beaut Chorey-Les-Beaune

In Burgundy on December 7, 2016 at 5:47 pm

choreyThis wine opens with ripe expression of strawberries, touches of wet granite, and high notes of cranberry and fresh raspberries layered with a hint of cinnamon spice. The estate eschews stem inclusion, so these wines are bright, clear and focused with fruit intensity on the palate. The wine is still young and fresh as a daisy, and as the palate unfolds, layers of minerality, snappy fruit, and a mineral backbone asserts itself by developing further and further once the bottle is open. Certainly, this bottle is now nearly six years old, but still drinks best on day two after the cork is pulled. To me, this means you’ve got plenty of years left in the cellar or, for urgent needs, whip it around in a decanter to drink now. This wine is animated and fresh, perfect with a ham and Gruyere sandwich, or an elegant beef Bourguignon.

Although quality often goes handcuffed to spendy riches in Burgundy, that’s not always the case. And in fact, Tollot-Beaut is now backed by four famous vignerons in Burgundy, among them Anne Gros. If some of Burgundy’s longest- standing, most famous wine producers are willing to invest here, shouldn’t you?

Here is a prized estate, one of the first to domaine bottle, that proudly holds to its farmer roots, making amazing wine at a price that won’t cost you your own fortune. Please contact us for pricing and availability: sommelier@waterfordwine.com or 414-289-9463.
