BISHOP'S RING CABERNET SAUVIGNON
NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 2017
We don’t often delve into the “mystery wine” trend but when the opportunity to offer a renowned Napa Valley Cabernet for a ridiculous bargain presented itself, we couldn’t resist. Plus, who doesn’t love a good secret? As is often the case, there is more to today’s red than can be perceived from the label. The words ‘Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon’ are a good starting point, but the big clue comes from the bottle itself and the contents inside. Normally fetching upwards of $100 (and worth every penny), this Cabernet is produced by a winery with some serious prestige. Noted for its Bordeaux-style estate wines, they implement an old world, labor intensive, micro-vineyard management style to craft their wines. With a focus on site selection, the estate’s vineyards are established in the cooler microclimates of Southern Napa Valley: high-elevation Mount Veeder and the maritime-influenced Valley floor. Today, the estate spans 120 acres across the Mount Veeder and Oakville AVAs.
Revered on the world stage, our secret estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon is inspired by the great wines of Bordeaux and sourced from 20+ year old vines that yield wine with incredible concentration, power, and grace. Today’s wine is highly aromatic and well delineated—a total rock star with a vibrant array of dark and juicy blackberry and blueberry fruit with notes of bacon, cedar, and sage. Grown under meticulous attention to detail, the grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted twice before and after destemming. The fruit was then cold soaked for two days in traditional fermenters for optimal extraction and aged in 85% new French oak barrels.
As the 2017 vintage was riddled with challenges, not every winery produced a wine. However, with focus, attention to detail, and the proper resources, it was possible to produce high-quality wine and today’s Cabernet is a testament to that. This is the first time we’ve offered a Cabernet from this Napa Valley estate and though it didn’t hit the mark for one of their $100+ signature offerings, it speaks to the pedigree of a “second wine” for a price that will make you do a double take. The wine is normally $49.99 a bottle, but Concierge pricing makes this “special occasion wine” fit for any occasion. Stock up on a case…or two…before our offer ends!
