This label looks like Screaming Eagle and will leave you feeling just as good--but without the decade long waiting list or a 4-digit cash outlay!  

A California twist on the Southern Rhône’s famed Syrah blends, Auctor will knock you off your chair—especially at this price—with its layers of bright cherry fruit and luxurious spice. A No-Brainer case buy, this is your new house red!

About the wine

From the coastal vineyards oFrom the coastal vineyards of Paso Robles, The is an effortless red blend that combines ripe fruit and richness with refreshing acidity in a can’t-miss deal.

Huge nighttime temperature swings across Auctor’s vineyards ripen powerful Rhône grapes—like the Syrah and Grenache—develop incredible concentration in 2014, giving the Auctor amazing structure. A medley of soil types including granite, marine rock, and volcanic rock add a level of complexity rarely seen in value bottles. The Auctor is a must-have!

"Excellent California blend. Nicely balanced, retains that fruit forward crowd pleasing first sip, but nice complexity on the finish." - Dana M.

"Paid $18 and it drinks like a $60 bottle." - Dan G.

" A new favorite to keep on hand for sure." Cathryn N.

96 pts, Laura Burgess, WSET Advanced

"Lively and floral on the nose, Auctor is a wild red bursting with mixed berry and ripe red cherry flavors. Led by Mourvèdre, the ‘14 is medium-bodied, refreshing and ready to enjoy now! Silky tannins and a long, toasty finish round out this easy to love red."

95 pts, Thomas Stafford, Certified Sommelier

"Inky black color, massive, yet somehow its graceful. Killer notes of black raspberries, red plums, cocoa powder and earth. A unique cross section of Cabernet like flavors and soft textural aspects of warm climate Syrah.  Full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, gargantuan fruit and a weightless component that makes it an intriguing buy."

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
