You know it’s a fun day when you’re tasting a wine from a wine-loving fellow who just happened to be the head coach of three NFL teams over the course of a decades-long career (one with a Super Bowl Championship thrown in there!). Yup, we’re talking about Dick Vermeil, the legendary coach with a passion for football and wine, the latter of which he finally pursued as an over-achieving hobby after his retirement in 2005.
We were giddy with excitement to snag this single-vineyard bottling that is truly a classic example of what Calistoga-grown Cabernet Sauvignon has to offer, especially at the $65 STEAL of a price. Nearly 50% off? Are you kidding?
The wine is intriguing, mesmerizing, deep and complex with sensual aromas and flavors of cassis, ripe blackberries and black cherries, mocha, vanilla, leather and earth. The tannins are well structured and firmly grasp the luscious fruit into a melt-worthy finish.
Tantalizingly beautiful and a steal for single-vineyard Napa Cabernet (most trade well above $120+). Get it while it lasts. Complimentary shipping on 3 bottles!
