Was $40! Now $19! And that’s not all...this hails from the coveted Shake Ridge vineyard and was made with consulting by none other than rockstar winemaker Philippe Melka!

...and the hits keep coming! 2016 was such a sensational vintage, and these master winemakers (Melka, of course, a legend, and Matt Sands) made a brilliant, dark, hedonistic Zinfandel that you will wish you bought more of. At $19??!!

A wonderful exercise in sourcing fruit from famous plots, Waypoint digs deep into their Rolodex to find fruit from unique places that deserve a little more attention. It all starts with fantastic vineyards and folks who farm them sustainably. There are plenty of important decisions that follow, but ultimately, it’s about letting the wines speak for themselves and listening to the historic terroir express itself.” Single-vineyard wines need to stand on their own merit. Waypoint harnesses that belief with both hands and lets the vineyard and corresponding wine do all the talking.

The wine itself is packed with ripe, juicy boysenberries, black cherries, new leather, cocoa dust, and a hint of white pepper, all in a rich, complex texture. ASTOUNDING for this price. An incredible buy for so much pedigree here...please don’t miss! While it lasts!
