Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla 2016
READY??!! We’re breaking the Internet today, well, at least the part of the Internet that loves CABERNET SAUVIGNON at OVER 50% OFF with a whopping 92-POINT score (and two other 90-point scores), and gets our emails or has our app…
That is like a bajillion people though, so DO ANYTHING to grab this, it will FLY -- Walla Walla Valley Cabernet from the superb 2016 vintage priced anything CLOSE to our price is so absurdly rare that we are seriously wondering if a math mistake was made somewhere. Whatever, too late!!
WHEW! Get some? Good. Yer gonna LOVE it. NOW --- especially if you love what we call that “coffeeshop” thing - you know, roasting beans, mocha, toasty breads, jam-filled poofs of bread, soul-warming aromas...all backed up with ripe blue fruits, plum jam, spice, silky texture and good balance. Astounding, really, for our crazy price!
Third generation winemaker Jean-François Pellet, born in Switzerland and worked for many years at HEITZ here in Napa, is the winemaker behind this amazing value (and we say that it is an amazing value at $33, at our price, well, it’s derangement). You can ready all the glowing reviews below, but SERIOUSLY people, ya gotta get some of this. Cabernet! Will go faster than you can say “Walla Walla”! While it lasts!
Free ground shipping on 6 or more bottles.
“An elegant cabernet, this is dusty and savory, with scents of cedar and pine tips informing its plum flavors. Very firm and detailed."”
~Wine & Spirits
“Amavi's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a classic Cabernet nose of dark fruits, leafy herbs, chocolate and damp earth. It's nicely concentrated, has medium to full-bodied richness, and a rounded, plump, delicious texture. The releases from Amavi Cellars continue to represent terrific values.”
“Appealing aromas of dark roasted coffee, café au lait, plum and barrel spice lead to elegant fruit flavors that display a charming sense of freshness. It's a pretty expression of the variety, with a lovely sense of balance.”
