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!

"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."
