Dolum Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 11 Sonoma County 2019
STFD (Shut The Front Door)!!! Seriously… it’s still crazy hot, and my A/C is struggling! But otherwise, get in here and join the mega-deal wine party/bash/extravaganza because we’ve discovered a rockin’ NEW CABERNET GEM for your collection! 96 POINTS, you heard that right, NINETY-SIX – and yours today (if you scoot) for the mind-meltingly low price of TWENTY FOUR SMACKAROOS!
Madness, I tell you, madness. And yet, THIS. IS. SPARTA (at least when it comes to crazy delicious wine at best-in-the-solar-system pricing)! This is some seriously good juice, y’all. I’m crushing on my glass, I’m telling you…getting all shy and awkward, imagining a long and beautiful life together. WHAT A LIFE! 100% cabernet sauvignon. Mostly single-vineyard in the Chalk Hill area of Alexander Valley, just west of Napa Valley proper, plus a dash of the Dolum estate in Oakville. The primary vineyard is across the street from the legendary Vérité’s holdings (too many 100 pointers to count, at a cool $400/bottle price tag, no biggie), on a complementary combo of ancient river bed and volcanic loam soils. This is a mind-the-gap perfect fit squarely between the earthy graphite and high-toned Bordeaux-style with the round, creamy opulence of classic Napa. Just epic.
Can’t. Stop. Sipping! Oodles and oodles of baker’s chocolate, kirsch, violets and jasmine, blackberry, black cherry, black currant, mocha, espresso, rooibos tea, graphite, and on, and on, and on! Wonderfully elegant and gloriously powerful, this is something special – even if it were thrice the price! 96 POINTS and $24?!?! You know what to do, my friends!
Free ground shipping on 6 or more bottles.
“Juicy, sumptuous, and silky, with blackberry preserves and round, supple tannins. So approachable, with a gliding, deep dive into tilled soil, espresso, and black beans beneath its soulful core.”
All the fruit for Dolum Estates wine is taken from small sub-districts throughout the Napa Valley, including Oakville, the Stags Leap District and a select few others. This persnickety selection choice produces exceptional fruit that is surrounded by some of Napa Valley’s most renowned producers. Dolum also has its own single vineyard that produces wine from low-yielding 40+ year-old vines on an Oakville crossroad in the eastern side of the AVA. Cuttings for these vines originate from a vineyard planted on the property in 1999. Today, second and third-generation family members meticulously tend the vines. Traditional winemaking and maturation in French oak have ensured a complex, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon which will reward long-term cellaring.
