December Deal of the Week!

Beth Ribblett

To help you with you holiday wine shopping, each week in December we will feature an incredible deal on a wine, 30% to 50% off of the normal retail price.  And these won't be just any wines, they'll be highly rated by respected producers that you may know from spending time in our shop.  For example, this weeks deal is from Chateau Pesquie in the Southern Rhone.  The Quintessence is the top cuvee from this estate and will sell normally for $22.99.  This week only you can buy this wine for $15.99!  The shipment arrives Tuesday so come on over and check it out!  Here's what Robert Parker has to say about this wine:

Wine Advocate, June 2009, Rating 91pts, Price $21-$25, Drink 2009-2014, Reviewer Robert Parker:
"Pesquie’s top cuvee, the 2006 Quintessence Rouge, is made from the estate’s oldest Syrah (80%) and Grenache (20%) vines, spends 12 months in French oak, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. This beauty boasts a dense ruby/purple hue along with abundant aromas of blackberries, charcoal, cassis, and forest floor. The sweetness of the tannins, purity, full-bodied mouthfeel, and richness are impressive. It should drink nicely for 4-5 years.  One of the Cotes du Ventoux’s top estates."
This week only $15.99!!  Shipment arrives on Tuesday, December 7th.
