A Great Deal Gets Better

New Case-12 Special on Substance Cabernet


Charles Smith’s wines (K Vintners, Substance) are some of the most coveted, popular wines to come out of Washington State—and we’re sweetening our already great price on his entry level “Cs” Cabernet with a new Case-12 special. For just $159, you can stock up on one of the best values out there in West Coast Cabernet (that’s only $13.25/bottle!).

Snowden:

Napa Valley’s Best Kept Open Secret


Offering one of Napa Valley’s best quality-to-price ratios, Snowden has earned the respect of both its peers and consumers alike. Today we’re thrilled to offer their 2016 “Brother” bottling, as well of two vintages (2016 and 2017) of “The Ranch” bottling. Both wines punch well above their weight, offering what many consider the region’s best sub-$100 and sub-$50 Cabs respectively.

The Best Ornellaia of the Century?

2016 was an all-time-great year in Tuscany and as you’d expect, the 2016 Ornellaia is special stuff.  We’ve managed to secure additional stock on this stunner and the first drop just arrived.  Separating the 2015 and ’16 vintages in terms of quality seems impossible, so let’s just say that the 2016 is one of the two or three best vintages of the wine in the last decade—which is to say it’s on the shortlist for best Super Tuscan of the century.

Vintage Port Subscriber Special

Vintage Port remains one of the best deals in the world of classical fine wine—top flight, epic bottlings from historic producers with long track records at prices that seem unfathomable given their pedigree.  These are wines that compete with Grand Cru Burgundy and First Growth Bordeaux at prices that are fractions of their peers.

We’re offering you extra discounts on these fantastic wines through the end of the weekend—10% off purchases of 6+ bottles of Vintage Port and 5% off purchases of 3-5 bottles.
