SPECIAL: Ground shipping included on orders of 3 bottles or more!

OK, here’s the insider secret, Invino people. Jason is a master vineyard manager for none other than Regusci Winery in Stags Leap District. Jim Regusci owns a LOT of vineyards spread around the Valley, and Jason gets a bit of the cream of the crop for his tiny, one-man winery Cortello (Italian for "knife", referring to the special curved sickle-type knife used at harvest time for grapes).

This wine has ALL the good stuff. Best grapes from a single, pristine vineyard in St. Helena, French oak barrels, and the kind of care and attention you can give when you only make a few hundred cases. We’ve been selling Cortello since Jason’s first vintage, and (thankfully!) we are one of the few places to even get an allocation!

50% OFF! Crazy! What’s it like? Dark…concentrated and intense, yet surprisingly light on its feet, too. Pops with lush, decadent oak at the first sip, then the rush of deep, dark plum jam, roasting coffee beans, black cherry, chai spice and cigar box notes...but the SEXINESS is the showstopper --- the lush, silky palate, savory tannin and creamy mouthfeel...on the finish you get a bit more spice and mocha..and then just a kick of tannin at the end remind you you’re drinking Napa cab!! Another RAGING will LOVE it! This price (and the free shipping on 3!) is simply a NO-BRAINER. While it lasts…we don’t get as much as we’d like, that’s for sure!

About the Producer

Since 2012, Cortello has been produced by Jason Lauritsen, head of farming at Regusci Vineyards. He works and consults for some of Napa's most prestigious estates, and manages over 1000 acres, much of it in the highly desirable Stags Leap District. This gives him some unrivaled access to world-class grapes, including a vineyard in St. Helena that went into this special bottling.
