Dear Wine Cellar Customers,
Every year, our local wine reps pitch us thousands of great wines from around the world. Only the best of the best buys, about 100 per year in all, are strong enough to feature as Wine Cellar email specials.
As you know, our email specials are always priced to fly; not coincidentally, the vast majority of the them sell out within a day or two. However, once in a great while, we get a little too excited about a deal, and buy an ocean of vino when a mere lake would have sufficed. In these over-buy situations, we find ourselves left with lots of tasty leftovers.
With spring releases just around the corner, the time has come to blow out the tastiest leftovers of 2017: Five scrumptious wines selling for even LESS than than the rock-star pricing offered when we initially emailed them. Whether you missed the initial offering or loved it and would like to reload, NOW is the time to stock up and SAVE, while supplies last!
Without any further ado, allow us to proudly present these five super-steals:
Daou Vineyards ‘Pessimist’ Red Wine Paso Robles 2016
For complete email feature from November, click HERE.
92 points Robert Parker: “Composed of 27% Syrah, 19% Zinfandel and 54% Petite Sirah, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Pessimist delivers a gregarious nose of ripe black cherries, blackberries and blueberries plus notions of Chinese five spice, mocha and raspberries. Full-bodied, voluptuous, soft and plush, it packs in the fruit cake and exotic spices, finishing with great length. Best from 2017 – 2022. 92 points.”
Release price: $30/bottle
This week’s blowout price: just $18.96/bottle, while supplies last!
Tenet ‘The Pundit’ Syrah Columbia Valley 2015
For complete email feature from October, click HERE.
92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The 2015 Syrah ‘The Pundit’ continues to over-deliver in every vintage, showing loads of dark, earthy fruits, pepper and hints of olives in a medium to full-bodied, pure, layered style. It tastes like an Old World wine made in the New World, and that’s just what it is. Buy a case and drink it over the coming 4-5 years. 92 points.”
Release price: $25/bottle
This week’s blowout price: just $17.96/bottle, while supplies last!
Browne Family Vineyards ‘Tribute’ Columbia Valley 2013
For complete email feature from August, click HERE.
90 points Wine Spectator: “Dark, focused and juicy in texture, with crisp tannins wrapped around a lively core of red pepper-accented black cherry and dark chocolate flavors. Lingers well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Best from 2017 through 2021. 90 points.”
Release price: $35
This week’s blowout price: just $15.96/bottle, while supplies last!
Gerard Bertrand ‘Perles de Sauvignon Blanc’ 2015
For complete email feature from April, click HERE.

Columbia Crest Grand Estates Red Blend Columbia Valley 2014

A Wine Enthusiast “Best Buy”: “Merlot and Cabernet Franc make up the majority of this blend. Aromas of blue fruit, herb, pencil lead and barrel spice are followed by smooth plum flavors. Milk chocolate notes persist on the finish. Best buy.”
Release price: $12/bottle
This week’s blowout price: just $6.50/bottle, while supplies last!
