Importing powerhouse Wilson Daniels has teamed up with winemaker Vance Rose to bring us RouteStock. This project produces wines with high-quality grapes sourced from vineyards along well-known routes in the West Coast’s most respected wine regions. Vance Rose uses his decades of experience in the wine industry to produce handcrafted, approachable wines. The ‘Route 29’ Cabernet Sauvignon spends 20 months aging in French oak barrels, a portion of which are new, resulting in aromas of cedar and cola spices along with deep, dark fruit notes. A bold, rich palate loaded with flavors of ripe plum and blackberry preserves is balanced by hints of cocoa, coffee, and herbs.
Pairings: Texas-style chili topped with cheddar, sour cream, and scallions
Already packaged up, ready to go, and stacked at the front of the store, our monthly Sir Walt’s Six Pack is a great opportunity to try something new at an even better deal at 20% off the regular price.
