Rombauer Classics

Best Prices for One of the Most Popular Wineries in California!

Rombauer is a name that needs little introduction.  One of the best-selling names in California wine history, their Chardonnay and Zinfandel set standards for big bold wines.  Those wines mirror the house style—the goal with all the wines from Rombauer is to be as delicious as possible right out of the gate.  When the family started their winery in the 80’s, this was a revolutionary notion.  Now, it seems like a no-brainer thanks to their efforts.

We’re offering stunning deals on a wide variety of their wines—a bit of a coup, if we may say so ourselves. There’s a massive assortment of the wines, including the Chardonnay, Zinfandel, a few of the Cabernets and the Sauvignon Blanc, in a variety of bottle sizes.  From half-bottles to three-liters, there are formats to suit your palate and drinking needs.

As you might expect, though, these are limited in quantity, so grab them before they sell out—it’s going to be a while before we can offer you these sorts of prices on Rombauer again.

Winery note
“Introduced to California during the Gold Rush, Zinfandel is considered by many to be America s heritage grape. A tribute to California wine history, this Zinfandel was sourced from some of the state s oldest and most revered wine regions, from family-owned vineyards that in some cases date back over 100 years. This wine blends lots from select vineyards in top growing regions: El Dorado (50%), Amador (25%), Lake (14%) and Napa (11%) counties. 2015 bought the earliest harvest in our 35-year history. Yields were down overall, but prolonged warm weather resulted in exceptional fruit quality and richly flavored wines… Our classic California Zinfandel is dark purple-ruby, with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, concentrated aromas of blackberry and raspberry meld with clove and spice. Lush flavors of blackberry, cherry, licorice and vanilla flood the palate, followed by touches of pepper in the background. Plush and round tannins and great length make for a fresh and enticing finish.”

Seghesio’s Defiant:

A Powerful Zinfandel Blend

At Half Off the Winery’s Price

Seghesio’s “Defiant” is a powerful red blend that’s a big, rich wine perfect for drinking in the winter and fall. It tastes better when it’s half off what the winery charges for the wine (and fully $16/btl off the lowest wine-searcher price.  A blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet and a bunch of other minor grapes, this is a wine with beautiful textures, a full body and silky tannins—and up until now one of the premier bottlings that Seghesio made.  If you’re a fan of The Prisoner or other Zin blends, this delivers all of that dark-fruited style at a much, much lower price—so take note.

The original inspiration for the Defiant bottling was the wineries centennial celebration in 1995.  The name paid tribute to the founding spirit of the winery and the generations that kept the winery alive (through prohibition) and the wine is bold in tribute to them and their spirit.  We’re offering it today at an astounding price—just $14/btl by the case.  That’s $16 less than the winery charges and $21 less than the average wine-searcher price.   This is one to stock up on for winter drinking—though if you end up cellaring some for a few years, that won’t be so bad, either.

“Savory black cherry aromas lead to well-framed flavors of sage and pepper. A new blend from this winery offers the zest of Zinfandel with the focus of Cabernet Sauvignon. Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante, Barbera and Syrah. Drink now through 2027. 5,000 cases made.”

Charles Heidsieck’s Excellent Brut Reserve

Charles Heidsieck makes some of the most undervalue Grande Marque Champagne out there.  Made with higher amounts of reserve wines that most of their peers, the entry-level “Brut Reserve” bottling is a true standout, especially for the price.  This is classical Champagne that’s a true crowd –pleaser.  No matter whether you have wine geeks or casual drinkers at your table (or party), they’re going to love it.

And at the price we’re offering it at—you’re going to love pouring it for them.  A Champagne of this quality for this low of a price is a don’t-miss opportunity, so, well, don’t miss it.

Arriving Friday:

Charles Heidsieck Brut, Champagne NV 750ML ($59.95) $41.90 pre-arrival special
William Kelley – Wine Advocate 92+ points
“Based on the 2014 vintage, complemented by fully 40% old reserve wines, the new release of Charles Heidsieck’s NV Brut Réserve was disgorged earlier this year. It’s showing very well, opening up in the glass with notes of green apple, dried white flowers, pear, candied peel and walnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack and a racier, tighter-knit core than either the 2012- or 2010-base renditions, displaying good concentration and underlying richness. This is a bottling that continues to punch above its weight and which both merits and rewards a few years in the cellar before opening.”
