Only 975 cases were ever made of Delectus’ 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon, and we’re thrilled a handful lasted into this millenium! Called “Sleek and racy” by Wine Spectator, that early freshness and edgy fruit is still alive in this sassy, sexy Cabernet Sauvignon after nearly twenty years of aging.

Beautifully aromatic, this Napa jewel is the rare release that takes cellaring out of the equation and is instead ready to love right now. Delectus has a gold star reputation for good reason--one sip and you’ll understand why!

PLEASE NOTE: All orders will begin shipping on June 20th, 2018

About the wine

Delectus is a standout in any vintage, but in the 97-point 1999 season, their Cabernet is a true showstopper. The year was cool and steady, without the early storms or heat waves that can easily doom a vintage, and picture-perfect grapes didn’t go to waste in the hands of 8th generation winemaker Gerard Reisacher.

Stored by the winery since the 1999 harvest, the quality on these bottles is unbeatable,, and ONLY Vivino guarantees perfect cellaring for aged wines. That’s how we know the signature burly tannins of this Napa Cab have softened into pure silk, and still elevate flavors of plum, and cassis mixed with cocoa, baking spice, and espresso accents.

With over 20 years in the Napa Valley, Delectus has become synonymous with greatness, and his army of fans--including Robert Parker--mean his limited wines never last. With a devotion to terroir and micro-release wines, their ‘99 Cab is truly handcrafted. Unlike larger labels, Delectus’ minute production means quality is paramount, and Reisacher’s experience is unmatched.

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
