3 Bottles of 2019 Roto Cabernet Sauvignon, Maule Valley, Chile
Winemaker David Marcel arrived to Chile fresh off the boat from France as a twenty-two year old winemaker hungry for new terroir. After graduating with a wine degree from Montplelier, David worked for large wineries producing significant quantities of wine while simultaneously falling in love with his Chileño bride. David eventually decided to make his home in Chile, and two decades later, began producing wines primarily composed of Pais and Carignan from some of Chile’s most prized heritage old vines. David is a force and one of the most generous humans we have ever encountered. He is a tireless advocate for the artisan winemakers of Chile and continues to lead a path for his contemporaries, typically putting himself after others. David’s wines are typically understated, extremely drinkable wines of great value.
This wine is made with 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, and 3% Alicante Bouchet. Lots of red fruit and lighter than a California cab.
3 Bottles of 2016 Fable Cabernet Sauvignon, California
Since 2010 Fable has been on a mission to produce wines that are delicious, balanced, and responsibly made. This Cabernet that is sourced from the North and Central Coast AVA’s has great aromatics, enticing red and black fruit, and smooth tannins.
3 Bottles of 2018 Slingshot Cabernet Sauvignon, North Coast, California
This tremendous Cabernet from Stewart is complex and balanced, with a bouquet of ripe forest fruits, tobacco and vintage leather with a textured, deep palate of dark chocolate, blueberry, and plum. The lingering finish of subtle French oak is intoxicating.
3 Bottles of 2016 Klinker Brick Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi, California
This lush Cabernet is ripe, polished and well balanced. This wine checks all the boxes. It has notes of opulent black-cherry, black-currant and oak-spice aromas lead to rich but not overripe fruit flavors, while a soft layer of fine-grained tannins forms a smooth mouthfeel.

This Cabernet from Washington State ranked #49 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 of 2019. It is deep blue and black in color with mouth-filling layers of black currant, blackberry, cedar box and crushed stone. This wine has tremendous balance and a firm, rich finish that seems to never end.
