If you ask our Wine Director, Brett, about the provenance of the grapes that go into Super Cuvee every year, he is tight-lipped and iron clad. That's because the wine that goes into Super Cuvee comes from some of the most well-known and sought-after wineries in Napa Valley... wineries that have long wait lists and $100-$200+ wines.
Super Cuvee is our most allocated wines, and the 2015 vintage is drop-dead gorgeous. The secret ingredient in this year's blend, that takes this wine to the next level, is the Merlot. Yes, you heard us right. For the 2015 vintage, we were able to source wine from one of the top Merlot producers in all of California. Their Merlot-based wines sell for upwards of $200 a bottle. If you can find them.
In short, this hand-crafted, barrel-aged 2015 vintage of Super Cuvee is a can't miss. Better hurry up before it's gone!
Spirited aromas of black currant and plum with festive glimmers of mint, coffee and cedar. Decisively full bodied with an elegant structure, this wine delivers a mouthful of flavor that keeps going until dawn.

This wine is unbelievable! It does need some decanting, but once you try it, you will be inclined to go back to this website and buy another case of it before it is gone. Notes of red berries - raspberries, strawberries, a little bit of spicy finish. This one is a true piece of art :)
A little aggressive right out of the bottle. Once chilled and decanted really showed a very nice flavor
