We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car

I’m hoping you’re beginning to see a pattern here. If Baron Ziegler brings us the juice, it is going to be lights out good.

Cape Charles will go down as one of the best we have ever offered. Never before have we had so many customers come back for 2+ case return purchases. By that I mean the number of customers who bought some, took it home and tasted it, and then purchased over 24+ bottles right after they tried it. 

Today we have something equally as compelling. In our 10 years of working with Baron on these projects, this is the first time he was not willing to tell us where he got the juice. Only that it came from the Rutherford Bench and once we tasted it there would be no question we would want it. He was unwilling to compromise his contact, as the fruit source was too important to him.

The Rutherford Bench, if you’re not familiar, is basically like ground zero for Napa. Think Lail, Cakebread, Caymus (originally), Far Niente, Grgich Hills etc. Back in 1988 when a group of Rutherford Bench wineries were thinking about trying to establish an AVA for the area, the original committee was made up of wineries BV, Far Niente, Flora Springs, Harlan, Inglenook, Robert Mondavi, and Pine Ridge, and growers Tom and Martha May, Ren Harris, Robin Lail, Bob and Alex Phillips, Barney and Belle Rhodes, and Shari and Garen Staglin. So we’re talking the tippy top of the wine power pyramid here. I’ve included a map below of the current day stretch drive of the bench. You are probably familiar with some of the names.

 

The Rutherford Bench is generally considered as one of the top Cabernet producing locations on planet earth. 
 
After bottling, we sent the wine to a wine writer friend of ours that works for a global wine publication. We wanted to see if he loved the juice as much as we did, especially at this price point.

All we got in return was a text with the below photo, this emoji 💥, and several bad words that we are not able to repeat here. We felt like our initial belief in the quality here was justified :) 

If you love big red wine like we do, the color from that glass alone is probably calling your name.

 
This is the smallest lot that Baron brought us, so not much to go around.

All we can tell you is get while the gettin' is good.
