Enjoy an early sip of Patio Season

Dear Wine Cellar Customers,

Patio season is almost upon us. We simply can’t WAIT to relax with the neighbors and pop a few bottles of our favorite everyday “patio pounders.” Today’s special is certain to be the star of the show.

There’s a real chance you’ve never tried this wine before, but that’s okay. You can trust your friends in the wine business on this one. A delicate blend of Parellada and Garnacha Blanca (native white grapes of Spain’s Catalunya region), the 2015 Vina Sol is, quite simply, summer in a glass. It will pair beautifully with light appetizers and salads, as well as sunshine and good conversation.

Best of all, thanks to an incredible one-time buy from our local distributor, we’re unleashing this patio marvel at the hottest pricing in the NATION, along with a FREE $10.00 Gift Card offer on stock-up purchases!

Allow us to proudly present, along with our own tasting notes, the

Torres ‘Vina Sol’ Catalunya 2015
Very pale gold in color, the 2015 Vina Sol bursts with a lively bouquet of lemongrass and citrus blossom. On the palate, the bright fruit is joined by mineral and subtle herbal notes, finishing crisp, clean, and dry. Enjoy now – 2018. 90 points.”
Release price: $10/bottle
Wine Cellar email STEAL: just $7.99/bottle, or $5.96 for Insiders Club members!

Five-day stock-up BONUS: Now through Saturday, April 1st, include Vina Sol in a mix/match case of any 12 bottles in the store (excluding Club-Only Specials), and we’ll give you aFREE $10.00 Wine Cellar Gift Card, good on your next visit! No limit, while supplies of Vina Sol last!

To secure your share of this patio superstar at the one-time pricing, please respond to joel@winecellarofwi.com with your name and quantity desired anytime between now and Wednesday, April 5th. Or, better yet, to “try it before you buy it,” swing by the store anytime today only (Tuesday) for a FREE taste.

FAIR WARNING: As is often the case with our email specials, we only have a finite amount of this one available at the steal pricing, and fully expect to sell out quickly. If this delicate beauty is a “must-have” for your cellar, we strongly urge you to respond as soon as possible.

In the meantime, have a great day, and as always, THANK YOU for your loyal business!

Wine Spectator even says: “Drink now.”

Dear Wine Cellar Customers,

Single sentence wine lesson:

The Colchagua Valley is to South America what the Napa Valley is to North America.

Like Napa, the Colchagua Valley is home to virtually all of Chile’s most celebrated red wines, particularly when it comes to Cabernet and Cabernet-based blends. Just a few examples of Colchagua’s greatness:

Concha y Toro Don Melchor ($120 release)
Lapostolle Clos Apalta ($135 release)
Montes Alpha M ($100 release)

And Colchagua has a secret, one that Cabernet bargain-hunters have known for years: You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a terrific Colchagua Valley red. In fact, most of our favorite Colchagua reds sell for less than $20/bottle (as opposed to Napa, where almost nothing sells for less than $20).

If you have not had a lot of experience with the wines of Colchagua Valley, today’s wine is a GREAT place to start. A wildly unique combination of Cab, Syrah, Carmenere and Malbec, it’s packed with personality, and sure to pair beautifully with just about anything that comes off of the grill this summer.

Here’s the fun part: Thanks to your collective buying power, we just secured an incredible one-time deal on this Colchagua charmer. Today, without putting a single bottle on the shelf, we’re unleashing the entire lot at the hottest pricing in the NATION, up to 40% OFF of release pricing, while supplies last!

Allow us to proudly present, along with its mouthwatering review from Wine Spectator, the

Montgras ‘Quatro’ Red Wine Colchagua Valley 2012
35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 25% Carmenere, 10% Malbec, aged 10 months in oak.
“An herbal style, with plenty of ripe spicy notes to the black fig and roasted plum flavors. Dark chocolate and paprika accents grace the finish. Drink now.”
Release price: $15/bottle
Wine Cellar email STEAL: just $11.99/bottle, or $8.96 for Insiders Club members!

 

This wine is now completely sold out, and we are unable to obtain any additional bottles at this pricing. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

In the meantime, have a great day, and as always, THANK YOU for your loyal business!

Reserve Cabernet for Half-Price? Yes, we did it.

Cab lovers, this is almost too good to be true: Columbia Crest Reserve Cabernet, priced at over 50% OFF of release pricing, along with a FREE $10.00 Gift Card offer on stock-up purchases!

As many of you already know, the folks at Washington’s Columbia Crest winery know a thing or two about crafting exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, four of their Cabs are perennial favorites in our Club-Only Specials section:

Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley ($15.96/bottle)
Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Indian Wells ($12.96/bottle)
Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon ‘H3’ ($9.15/bottle)
Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Estates ($7.33/bottle)

While all of these wines are outstanding values, they are all child’s play compared to today’s featured bottle. Sourced entirely from Columbia Crest’s finest vineyards and aged over two YEARS in new French oak, the Columbia Crest Reserve Cabernet is easily one of the finest under-$50 Cabs in all of Washington. Always a critical darling, the 2005 vintage of this exact wine was lauded with a 95 point review, and named the Wine Spectator “Wine of the Year” by scoring the #1 spot on their annual “Top 100” list.

The 2011 bottling of Columbia Crest’s Reserve Cabernet may have been the winemakers’ finest hour. Despite a vintage with less-than-ideal conditions up and down the West Coast, Columbia Crest delivered another beautiful, ageworthy Reserve Cab. Not coincidentally, it received gushing reviews from all of the major critics (see below).

Here’s where it really gets exciting: Thanks to your collective buying power, we’ve just scored an insane end-of-vintage deal on every single bottle remaining in the state of Wisconsin. Today, without putting a single bottle on the shelf, we’re blowing out the entire lot at the hottest pricing in the NATION, along with a FREE $10.00 Gift Card offer on stock-up purchases!

Allow us to proudly present, along with its many glowing reviews, the

Columbia Crest Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2011
95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, aged 26 months in new French oak.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a stunner that comes from one of the more difficult vintages in the last decade. It has remarkable purity in its black and blue fruits, graphite, smoked herbs and licorice-scented aromas and flavors, and this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a great texture and sweet, slightly rustic tannin. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.”
Wine Spectator: “Velvety, round and dense, with licorice accents to the smoky black currant and dried plum flavors, picking up floral notes as the finish pushes against a light veil of firm tannins. Best from 2016 through 2021.”
Wine Enthusiast: “This reserve spent time in 100% new French oak, and shows better-than-average ripeness for this cool vintage. Fruit flavors of berry, cherry, and a streak of cassis are at the core, with pleasing aromatics as well. A generous chocolate flavor runs into the finish.”
