This month we've seen a huge spike in online wine sales. December is typically a wine shop's best month of the year by far but we've far surpassed that busy month. Much of the growth is coming from key wines that we've been adding to our inventory. Here's the top sellers that people are snatching up this month.
Each year we try to get our hands on as much Turley as possible. We're usually quite fortunate with the amount that we do receive. Most of the Turley wines are kept for their club members and for restaurant wine lists. When we get in their Old Vines and Juvenile Zinfandels we typically have them to sell for a few months and then they're gone until the following year. The Old Vines went particularly fast this year and we should have Juvenile around for another month or so. It's drinking great right now so be sure to take advantage while we have it.
This is an interesting project from Caymus. They select premium Malbec grapes in Argentina and then put them on a ship to California keeping them cool with a special process. The grapes arrive to Caymus and they make the wine just as they would their famous Cabernet. Forty bucks is a great price on this wine, you're more likely to find it for fifty or more. I personally enjoyed it more than the last vintage of Caymus I had.
Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 $39.99 (15% off on the purchase of 6 or more bottles)
Quilt is Joe Wagner's (of the family behind Caymus) first foray into Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is very much in the style of modern day Caymus: ripe fruit, round & plush with low acid. If this is your style then this wine is for you. It's incredible how much of this stuff we've sold in the past several months.
Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll 2013 $39.99 (save 10% on the purchase of 6 or more bottles)
Trefethen has been turning out classic Napa Cabernet year after year for many decades. The winery is currently sold out of the excellent 2013 vintage but we'll still have it available for a bit longer. The price that we're able to sell it at is substantially less than what you would pay from the winery, $60. Another great discovery we've found is their Dragon's Tooth Red Blend which is 45% Malbec, 35% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet. It's a beast of a wine that's been creeping towards our best seller list.
