The Lawer Estate Challenge put us in our place when its jaw-dropping Old Boys beat out Napa Valley elite Cabernet producers. Look where this $23 (NOT KIDDING!) Cabernet from Napa’s unmatched 2012 vintage stacks up:

  1. Constant Diamond Mountain ($150)

  2. Lawer Estates Hooker - Old Boys ($38 - today $23!)

  3. Del Dotto ($145)

  4. Kelleher Estate ($75)

  5. Chimney Rock ($120)

Hooker stunned us all (and everyone at Vivino too, earning a 4.3 rating). Get this dollar-for-dollar BEST Cabernet while you can—this sustainably-grown Cab will disappear when this revelation goes public!

About the wine

From their picturesque base in the Maycamas range of Calistoga, Lawer Family Estates crafts wines of “unmistakable character,” that crush the competition on quality... as our blind tasting and their pile of rave reviews proves.

Led by 4th generation winemaker Cary Gott—who cut his teeth at Round Pond, Ram’s Gate, and Sterling—their 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a nuanced, mysterious red that is shocking critics and drinkers across the Golden State. Napa’s famously “perfect” 2012 vintage gave Gott pristine conditions for producing Cabernet, but the results, after 25 months of aging in top-notch French Oak, are elegant and downright gorgeous. Fresh-crushed spices, blackberry, and cassis lead into a full-bodied, rich Cab that oozes with jammy fruit on the palate surrounded by fine-grained tannins. This juice won’t be back!

"Love it" - Karen M.

"First impression was hmmm...this is pretty damn good. Went back to it three times with the same results. Nice work!" - 'Vivino Customer'

 96+pts, Thomas Stafford, Certified Sommelier

"Succulent black and red fruits add to an irresistible aromatic profile. This is beautifully sophisticated Cabernet. It is streamlined, dark and impressively silky with a backbone of muscular tannin that is so polished you almost don’t recognize they are there! This would be a perfect compliment with crusty bread and a triple cream cheese."

Whoa! Barolo at this price point is almost impossible to find. Vite Colte is surrounded by the who’s who in Piedmont. Giacosa ($200), Aldo Conterno ($175), and Vietti ($100). Our importer snapped up all they could, this is a win-win!

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
