Today…$29.95! PLUS free shipping on 3 or more! Wild! Rudy Von Strasser at the helm, great vintage, big, gutsy, rich blend...amazing! Do not miss!
Most people know the Von Strasser name from their long-lived, collectible Diamond Mountain wines, but not everyone knows he bought the small Calistoga winery, Lava Vine. We made a spectacular deal with the winery with this Proprietary Red… $65 OFF retail! What?!
Lava Vine itself has a “cult” following, mostly for their bucolic Calistoga tasting room, which provides a truly unique experience to the visitor. Rudy is a legend in our little wine-soaked Valley, as he was the first American to ever work at Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, which changed everything for Rudy and for Napa Valley for that matter.
Today’s wine puts Rudy’s unmatched wine resume to the test with a stunning proprietary blend (he literally would not disclose this secretive blend to us) named ‘A’a. Pronounced "ah-ah", this is a Hawaiian term for rubbly lava flows that are particularly perilous to walk on. Side note: I once twisted an ankle trekking across the lava on the Big Island of Hawaii miles from any road and had to hobble my way back to civilization. The blend, which to us tasted like Bordeaux varietals and Rhone varietals if they had a love child, is profusely rich and concentrated with beautiful, toasty French Oak undertones and expressive aromatics. This is pure, hedonistic, full-bodied Napa goodness, with oodles of black and blue berries, plum jam, and a wonderful velvety texture.
New releases at “closeout “ pricing is something that happens but once in a blue moon -- with free shipping on 3, we highly recommend grabbing some ASAP! You’ll be wishing you bought more!
