Rob Lawson’s mad Cabernet-making skills have warranted 100 point ratings from no less than Robert Parker. This penchant for perfection gleams brightly through this phenomenal wine, produced in partnership with former NFL quarterback and Notre Dame legend Rick Mirer. Blessed with irresistible aromatics of dry rose petals and dark chocolate and packed with intense fruit flavors with a flirty peck of spice, it’s clear the duo have hit paydirt with this indulgent label. Time to kick off the start of the season in style! 

About the wine

Winemaker extraordinaire Rob Lawson scored a touchdown with the 2012 vintage. The mind-bending 2012 iteration picks off the opposition and runs it back for another score. Lawson’s process of destemming and hand sorting grapes, two-week fermentation, and 20 month barrel aging in French Oak coaxes new sensory experiences this year without sacrificing body, hue, or enjoyment. Aromatic swirls of blackberry, dark chocolate, dry rose petals, pipe tobacco, and baking spices enticingly announces its presence in the glass. The wine seamlessly transitions from nose to palate, offering up soft initial waves of dark cherry and nuanced leather before segueing into intense bursts of ripe plum kissed by blips of cinnamon, cedar, and vanilla. The rich tannins and balanced acidity carries the taste to a lengthy, clean, and sophisticated finish.

"Really enjoyed this wine. Good QPR." - AgElvis

95-96 points, Brian Whitaker, Sommelier/GM

"Fleshy layered black fruit, dried fruits, mocha dusted, toast, with a hint of black pepper. Deep, dark, and dense with a rich mouth-feel. Immense complexity, balance, and overall character. Well enjoyed. Recommended Pairing: Bistecca alla Fiorentina"

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
