Great Zinfandels for Thanksgiving

2011 Endeavor Zinfandel     Reg $17.99/ -- SALE $12.99

Dark ruby to purple in color, this medium-bodied wine smells of earth, mineral and peppery herbs with red and black fruit. The palate is of spicy dark fruit mixed with cherry, vanilla and spice.

 

It doesn’t taste like a Zin from anywhere else. It has the bold fruit of Paso Robles, a touch of spice like Dry Creek, the structure of Napa and the acidity of a Russian River Zin.  Put it all together and you have a great Zinfandel – a worthy Endeavor – and a wonderful value!

 

The 2011 Endeavor Zin was sourced from vineyards located in the Sierra Foothills of California in the El Dorado AVA. This custom cuvee was crafted by award-winning winemaker Marco Cappelli.  Endeavorseeks to offer wines of great quality that represent both authenticity of place (terroir) and tremendous value.





Fancy Collectible Cabernets

2012 Caymus Cabernet 40th Anniversary -

 

Highest Score EVER for this Classic Cabernet!!!

 

In 1972 Charlie and Lorna Wagner, began their classic American journey to create a family winery in the heart of Napa Valley. To celebrate their quest to make great Cabernet – and their great success, the Wagner family is releasing a special 40th Anniversary commemorative bottling of their iconic 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The Caymus Vineyards 2012 40th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon features a special commemorative bottle and label.

 

And it seems like their timing is PERFECT – the 2012 Vintage was outstanding. Robert Parker has given the vintage an overall rating of 96 points, equal to the  landmark years of 2007 and 2001. Says Chuck Wagner, "This wine exemplifies our style of Cabernet out of a great vintage: deep color, rich, concentrated and balanced. 2012 celebrates 40 years of producing our pride and joy, Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon."

 

2012 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary   $54.99 net

 

Wine Advocate 96      

 

They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait? However, I’m sure that like most vintages of Caymus, it will last for 20-25 years. Amazing!

 

I am old enough to remember Chuck Wagner and his father, who I first met at Caymus in the late seventies. This is clearly one of Napa Valley’s iconic wineries, as well as one that, amazingly, never went through a bad patch. Obviously, no matter which generation is in the driver’s seat (or should I say tractor’s seat), Caymus Vineyard knows how to deliver flavor and deliciousness.


And of Course - CHAMPAGNE!

NICOLAS FEUILLATTE Brut Rosé Champagne   

reg $49.99 / $39.99 Mixed case Sale Price

 

 

 

Wine with Pancakes! (as heard on the radio!)  This would be great with fresh fruit toppings – or a savory style pancake – Smoked Salmon, or ham – and we all know – Champagne is the perfect match for BACON!

 

 

 

Wine Spectator 90-92pts – “Exotic notes of candied orange peel, cinnamon and kirsch mark this intense rosé, which stays lightweight and elegant, with a silky texture and a lingering aftertaste of dried berry and spice.”
