Meteor Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

** WOW!! Now THAT was what we call Marathon Mucho Multitudeness MADNESS! Thank to everyone -- we hope you scored some dope deals! We are starting to pack the boxes already...but guess what came along …just when you thought we might take a little rest…

NO!! We plow ahead, always, endlessly cutting amazing deals. THIS ONE is a DOOZY! Collectors! Appreciators of finely aged Napa Valley Cabernet at a melon-twisting gotta move like lightning today.

Just EPIC. This is a staggering ** $136 OFF ** retail! Yes, no typo. Hey, we know, we're floored, too. Like, mental floored. There are (were) so many greats associated with this project: Andy Erickson (Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, more...), Dawnine Dyer (the best winemaker you don't really know), Tony Soter (Etude, Spottswoode, countless others), current winemaker and legend Philippe Melka, and a host of sommeliers and other industry titans. Man, is it good to be a else would we score something like this??

Drinking at its peak! As the Wine Advocate notes…”Impressively concentrated, medium to full-bodied, pure, textured, and long, this 2006 is approachable now, and should continue to drink well for 15 years…” If you have never appreciated the complexity of aged Napa Cab...TODAY is the day to swoop in. Wow! Meteor wines always have had a “Bordeaux” sensibility, and with age that is working beautifully in its favor. The wine opens minute by minute, changing and offering sweet tobacco, crushed flowers, espresso, deep blue fruits, plums, leather, earth and an almost Chinese five-spice note. The winery aged it for you, so it’s ready to go TONIGHT! While it lasts, that is!!

Bold blackberry & plum preserve with dark spice, black cherry, cassis, leather, cigar box, dark chocolate, grilled plum, grilled mission fig, grilled meat, graphite and black pepper.

About The Producer

Meteor Vineyard is the confluence of an extraordinary Cabernet vineyard in the southeast corner of Napa Valley, the entrepreneurial vision of internet pioneer Barry Schuler, the viticulture history and expertise of Mike Wolf and the consummate winemaking talents of Bill and Dawnine Dyer. Located on a knoll in Napa Valley’s Coombsville appellation, our unique combination of elevation, aspect and stony, rich volcanic soil produces some of Napa Valley’s most distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon. We produce just two wines, both all estate and 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Additionally, as our wines are made for the long term, we keep a complete library going back to the inaugural 2005.
