The masterful fusion of intense and mouth-watering warm black cherry pie is all backed by a chewy yet silky tannin backbone! This three vineyard blend is highly polished yet meets the demanding expectations of a $100 Cabernet!

About the wine

The 2015 Kukeri Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from some of the best Cabernet growing regions in Napa Valley located at 1200 feet elevation and another at the foot of the Mayacamas mountains. The grapes were handpicked in the beginning of September, sorted and de-stemmed into small fermentation bins and allowed to cold soak for 3 days to help stabilize the color and enhance flavor. It was fermented for 14 days and punched down 3 times a day, with an additional 2 days extended maceration to increase extraction of color and phenolic compounds. The wine is then gently pressed and aged on fine lees for 27 months in mixture of 80% French and 20% American oak barrels with 40% new French oak to preserve the delicate notes and mouthfeel. Only 7 barrels produced.

"I’ll look forward to the next bottle in a year. I’ll bet it will be great!" - Andy

"This is a special bottle. Looking forward to more." - Todd W.

"This awesome Cab opens with a cedar chest of spice and black pepper with a pungent core of black cherries and mulberries and truffles. It is medium-bodied with firm tannin all wrapped up with fresh purity and enthusiasm. It is one of the most versatile Cabernet’s I’ve had in a while and should go well with a wide spectrum of dishes. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have."

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
