“Best Cab in the World for $17″ for just $13!

BYQ_JSkIYAAnAP1(In)Famous and influential wine critic Robert Parker tweeted out last week that the 2010 and 2011 vintages of Louis Martini Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon are “The Best Cabernet in the world for $ 17.00.”

We don’t mean to correct someone with Parker’s expertise and knowledge, but Randall’s is actually selling this $17.00 Cab for $12.99 in IL and $13.99 in MO!

It is a very nice Cab for the price, well-balanced for everyday drinking. Come out to our Fairview Heights store this coming Saturday (11/16) to try it for yourself!

Seghesio ‘Old Vine’ Zinfandel at Fairview

Fairview Heights has another great Zinfandel at a great price.

Seghesio ‘Old Vine’ Zinfandel 2009

seghesio_ov_zinFrom the Winemaker: “Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel perfectly embodies our family’s goal of Sharing Uncommon Ground as only the finest lots from our oldest vineyards are selected for this composite blend.  These vineyards are rare treasures we have farmed over the course of our family’s century as grape growers.  Although Old Vine is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, our benchmark is fifty years.  The average age of the vines producing this wine nears 90 years.”

Wine Spectator’s Review: “Ripe but well-structured, with wild berry and licorice aromas and rich, layered flavors of plum and smoked pepper that are balanced with a great backbone of acidity and tannins. Drink now through 2017.”

92pts Wine Spectator

Parker 94-Point Red Blend from Argentina at Fairview Heights!

Chakana Estate Collection Red Blend 2011… $27.99

Chakana winery was founded by Juan Pelizzatti on May 2nd, 2002. Juan was driven to enter the wine industry first and foremost by his passion for wine, and also by the desire to invest his time and money on a product of agriculture. Although Juan did not know it at the time, the company was founded on the same day the Chakana was celebrated on the Andes highlands: on that same day, the Southern Cross (the Chakana for the Inca people) becomes vertical in the night Andean sky.

Juan’s mission is to create an integral experience to introduce world consumers to the taste and culture of the Andes. His vision is to become one of the top 20 exporters of wine from Argentina, by consistently offering outstanding value for money.

Technical Notes for their 2011 Red Blend: 2 days maceration on skins in temperature controlled steel vats; 12 days fermentation with selected yeasts allowed to rise to a maximum of 28°C.

Aged for 10 months in French oak barrels (100% new wood)

Deep red color with violet hints. Dark fruits and exotic spices with tobacco and mocha hints.

Elegant, well balanced, harmonious, long persistence with chocolate flavors.

94 Points Wine Advocate
“Chakana’s top cuvee is their 2011 Estate Blend, which is 60% Malbec from the Agrelo vineyard and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Aged 10 months in French oak, this wine displays notes of toast, blackberries, sweet cherries and Asian plum sauce as well as notes of white chocolate and barrique. The wine has great fruit, an opaque purple color, medium to full body, and loads of glycerin, fruit and length. It will drink well for 7-8 years, possibly even longer, and it is a sensational value.An incredible discovery for me, this winery was founded a decade ago and named after the Southern Cross (“Chakana” is the local Indian dialect for that constellation). It is located approximately 20 miles south of Mendoza in Agrelo. All three of these wines are highly recommended, and all are fabulous bargains in Malbec.”
-Robert Parker, Issue #201, June 2012
