Silky soft and SO luxurious - how is this Cab only $15?!

    • Camille’s made cult Napa Valley reds that sell for $150 a pop. Now she’s bringing you a world-class Cab with the biggest savings yet, flowing with layers of berries, currants and warm spices.

    • Your winemaker harvested Cabernet from the nutrient-packed volcanic soils of Mount Konocti for rich, decadent flavor – then aged the wine in toasted French oak for soft, velvety texture.
    • Camille treated this special Cabernet to all the same luxury as her cult Napa Cabs - but because you made it possible, this extravagant treat is yours for less than $15 a pop!
    • Last year's vintage scooped up a whopping Double Gold at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (yes - there's such a thing as DOUBLE Gold!). Sip in some dynamite, award-winning bliss!

Aging advice
It is always better to let the wine sit for a few months after you receive it. But can be enjoyed right away. This wine will be peaking around 2022

Serving advice
This wine drinks nice and open, unlike the previous vintages. I think giving it an hour breathing is always nice, but I do not foresee this wine requiring it.

Local food match
Charcuterie, steak, roasted poultry, wine-based stews, hard cheeses, red fruit, chocolate. Like my grandma always said, "Vin sur lait, c'est sante" – this wine should cary you through appetizer to desert.
