St. Helena Cabernet for $36??! Normally we’d look at you funny if you said that, but since we know the man behind the bottle, we’re instead buying as much as we can!
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.
Ready to rock and roll some big, delicious Cabernet? US TOO! Drinking like something AT LEAST $75, the ‘17 Cortello is dark with blue fruits, perfume and creamy aromatics, packed with bright plummy blue fruit, cocoa nibs (yeah, that’s a thing), gingerbread, and a touch of caramel and espresso. Absurdly drinkable now, although you could age this for 5-7 years or so…but, really, WHY? We got it for you at a wicked-killer price --- drink it all the time, preferably with something off the grill.
We bought ever bottle we could, but this will likely FLY out of here -- let us know what we can do for you!
