Chateau Fontana

Our first from the great 2018 Bordeaux vintage!!
"I can tell you that 2018 is an exceptional year for Bordeaux wines.-- James Suckling

"These are likely to be high impact wines." -- Decanter Magazine on 2018 Bordeaux

"2018 Bordeaux...many believe the potential quality of the wines could be on par with classic vintages such as 1990, 2005 and 2010." --  The Wine Spectator

2018 Chateau Fontana Bordeaux Rouge...$14.99
Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot
This one we tried to get last year, but the importer says it sells out so fast each year we already missed out.  We are excited to be able to get the sought after 2018 vintage.
This one is a fraction of the cost for Fontana’s neighbors, the wine  is from Bordeaux, which is regarded as the best wine producing region in the world.
Fontana’s old-vine Merlot (36 years old!) are thriving where others are struggling and exquisitely expressing their character, blended with  Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc flesh out into a champion bottle with violet aromas and a rich palate ripe red and blueberries, spice, and earth.
Just as much an everyday drinker as it is a celebratory one or one to lay down, the 2018 Chateau Fontana as it is now is the very definition of an easy drinker of which, vintage after vintage, we’ve been repeatedly stunned on how superbly it exemplifies its terroir.

Pair this with any red meat, nice steak wine!
