100pt Mia Klein made the one-time decision to blend the top three blocks from their Oakville Estate into a single bottle--and the result is so good they’d be out of business if they did it again--this is insane luxury Cabernet at a fraction of the standard $185+ cost.

Vine Cliff’s prime terroir--literally across the street from Screaming Eagle--is in this bottle. Yes, it’s that good, and no this deal is not a typo.

About the wine

Straight across the street from Screaming Eagle lies Vine Cliff Estate, an equally storied winery dating to 1871, and stomping grounds for Napa’s best winemaking talent including Paul Hobbs, Phillippe Melka, Mia Klein, and Thomas Rivers Brown.

In 2011, Vine Cliff did away with its single-appellation Cabs and instead blended across its Napa Valley sources to create the best Cabernet of the year. That’s right, their Oakville claim-to-fame Cabernet is under $200 at last! Robust and spicy with notes of fresh herbs blended with wild black fruit, Vine Cliff has outdone itself in a rare value bottle from the iconic estate. And it’s getting better every day as its soft tannins melt into the core of this full-bodied wine.This deal is beyond a bargain--beautifully made and perfectly cellared, Vine Cliff’s pedigree is unbeatable and so is this price!

Reviews

4.4 Vivino Users

"Big, but not overwhelmingly so." - Barry J. (2011 Vintage)

"Wow. Perfectly balanced. Not overdone. Good fruit and solid tannins" - David P. (2008 Vintage)

"Gorgeously rich and smooth. Gave it an hour to breathe and it opened up into a deliciously satisfying pour." - Kim W. (2012 Vintage) 

98 pts, Thomas Stafford, Certified Sommelier

"This is one of the top Cabernet Sauvignons in the vintage, it offers up classic stewed black cherry, smoked meat and roasted spice. It is highly extracted yet elegant and seamless in texture with nicely polished tannin. A perfect compliment to an evening of roasted pork shoulder topped with a cherry compote."

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
