Super Rare Napa Cabernet

Super Rare Napa Cabernet

2016 Lewis Cuvee L Cabernet Sauvignon....$234.99 
(only 6 bottles available)
Cuvee L,” quite simply, is the best of the best at Lewis, comprised of 12 of the finest barrels in the cellar.  They taste each barrel individually and select only the best of the best for Cuvee L.  This is basically the reserve of their already phenomenal reserve Cabernet.

2016 Lail J Daniel Cuvee...$259.99
(18 bottles available)
One-hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 75% new French oak, the 2016 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple in color and offers up exuberant notes of crème de cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, wild blueberries, violets and unsmoked cigars with touches of garrigue, fragrant earth, powdered cinnamon, black olives and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, with a solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and minerally
Rated 100/100 The Wine Advocate

A California Legend at a great price!
2015 Silver Oak Alexander Valley....$77.99
Compare to Total Wine and More's “Best in Market Pricing” of $89.97
Maroon in color with a garnet hue, this wine has an enticing nose of maraschino cherries, blackberry bramble and brisket with notes of clove and star anise. It’s mouthwatering with a juicy entry and has a fruity mid-palate of currant with toasted vanilla and roasted brown sugar character from American oak barrels. Structured tannins provide an elegant character with a long and expressive finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2041.
