We were thrilled this morning to receive word that more 2012 Corliss Cabernet and Red Wine are arriving later this month. In our opinion (which is mirrored by some of the world's leading wine critics) these are two of the best Washington reds available. Last time we sold out in minutes, so please stake your claim quickly! Corliss Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
$89.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($99.95 regular)
97 points Wine Advocate:"A wine that I would put up there with the crème de la crème of Washington State Cabernet is the 2012 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Corliss, which is insanely good and does everything right. It is made from 97% Cabernet and 3% Petit Verdot that spent 28 months in 70% new French oak. It's saturated ruby/purple color is followed by fabulous notes of crème de cassis, toasted spice, chocolate and tobacco leaves. These give way to a full-bodied, seamless and layered 2012 that has fabulous purity and freshness, a big, rich mid-palate and sweet tannin that emerge on the finish, all suggesting it will have a long life. Forget bottles for 4-5 years and drink over the following two decades. Bravo!" -- arrives 12/22
$75.55 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($83.95 regular)
95 points Wine Advocate:"The 2012 Columbia Valley Red Wine is another rock star Bordeaux blend that's made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. It was aged 28 months in 65% new French oak. Notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings and black currants all emerge from this rich, full-bodied and concentrated effort that has a big, layered texture, no hard edges and impeccable balance. It's slightly more approachable than the straight Cabernet, yet should nevertheless evolve for just as long." -- arrives 12/22
