The 2017 vintage started out with a much cooler and wetter winter with more snowfall than we had seen in the previous few vintages. Spring followed suit which led to a sizeable delay in bud break. July and August came with above-average temperatures helping to speed up the ripening process, letting us start harvest around the same time as the previous hot vintage. The 2017 Alderdale Cabernet Sauvignon picked from our esteemed Block 5 is sure to please the crowd. Rich aromatics of ripe blackberry, cassis, raspberry, cedar, and mocha are layered throughout the wine. A velvety tannin profile lends to a well-structured palate showing more blackberry, black raspberry, cocoa and plum. Enjoy this with your favorite cut of meat fresh off the grill.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
During Checkout you may Choose the Hold Until Safe and we will ship it once weather conditions are suitable
In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
