Two weeks ago, I hit Winebow's trade tasting and went straight to the August Briggs Winery table. There has been SERIOUS BUZZ about his Cabernet, sourced from legendary, mega-concentrated single vineyard Napa Valley properties that list for $40+ per bottle. I tasted through his lineup, and then proceded to say, "Let's see him make the same kind of wine for $10/bottle-THAT would impress me!"
Hearing this, he grabbed me under the arm, walked me to a neighboring table, and thrusted a glass of 2008 Castle Rock Paso Robles Cabernet into my hand. THE WINE WAS OUTSTANDING, so imagine the look on my face when he said, "I MADE THIS WINE!"
Needless to say I brought it in and put it on sale for $8.99/bottle. Great price, but today's deal is even better! Buy a case and you will get it for $78!!! Think about it – a winethat I fully endorse, and it comes down to $6.50/bottle!?!?
