SORRY - SOLD OUT in 1 Hour! We've Got Your Back {CLICK HERE} To See Another Great Deal!

Herold, our favorite science teacher gone wine guru, mastered the complexities of Cabernet Sauvignon and has long since moved on--and the results shocked us and the rest of Napa.

Flux is his labels “pin-up” girl of a wine--sexy, plush, and round in all the right places. A tribute to the Rhone, it combines fruity, sassy Grenache with brooding Syrah and floral Mourvedre in a blend we can’t put down. Strawberry, raspberry, white pepper, and cardamom come together in this house red where tannins play the baseline. There aren’t any big lots in Herold’s winery, so get this before it’s gone!

About the wine

Mad scientist Mark Herold didn’t set out to be a cult winemaker nor a Robert Parker darling, but after just a few years in the wine business he’s become both and then some.

After a single harvest, Herold abandoned his career as a science teacher and dove headfirst into winemaking. After taking over the cult Cabernet world at Merus, he started a new label and began focusing on blends and the unseen blending grapes of Napa Valley. Now, those underdogs shine in his namesake blends, and prove Cab isn’t the only grape to rack up 98+ point scores.

An homage to Rhone grapes that thrive under the California sun, Flux is an intense red that’s at once both robust and supple. Ample fruit leads the way on the palate, and a spicy, tannic backbone supports this full-bodied beauty. All too easy to drink now, this Napa red will easily improve over the next ten years...if its wild berry aromatics don’t seduce you sooner.

Reviews

"A fantastic American Rhone blend, this is the wine to keep you warm during winter. Black cherry and that wonderful earthiness. Truly a great wine." Eric

"Nothing like a Mark Herold Blend! Silky smooth with ripe rich berries..." -  James H.

"I actually had to stop and look at the glass...loved the Surprise!" - Matthew

97 pts, Laura Burgess, WSET Advanced

"Gorgeous ruby in color, winemaker Mark Herold’s latest take on California is a mesmerizing value that over-delivers on the flavor front.  Wild berry, plum, and vanilla dominate the nose and the dark fruit trend continues on the palate with blackberry and fig chiming in. Full-bodied with big tannins and a spice-driven finish, this red is ready to throw down, California style."

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
