“This well-structured but sleek Bordeaux blend from the central coast is brimming with sour cherry and blackberry aromas. The gentle tannins are already well integrated and this has a very food-friendly balance.” JamesSuckling.com
Aromas of cherry cola, boysenberry, chocolate dipped blueberry. On the palate, well balanced, medium bodied with well integrated tannins. Notes of blackberry, boysenberry, & mocha. Medium length finish with a lingering of mocha, graphite and candied cherry.
An easy drinking Bordeaux style blend, this wine pairs well with most cuisines or can be enjoyed on its own. We hope you’ll enjoy it with family and friends.

As a young boy, Ron Donati grew up in South San Francisco, the son of a first generation Italian-American family. One of his fondest memories was the sights and smells of his grandfather making wine in his basement. Like most Italian immigrants, Albino Donati made his own wine for the family dinner table. As an adult, Ron became a successful entrepreneur with a penchant for making quality products that were attainable to all, not just a select few. This same passion serves as the foundation and guiding mission of Donati Family Vineyard today. It is our goal to produce wines of exceptional quality regardless of budget.

I bought 6 of these in August. Wish I’d got a case. Got four left after just opening one. The rats in August were pretty spot on. I would say it’s light to medium bodied, quite dry, but with lots of flavor. Very drinkable. I’m totally overstocked now, and trying to convince some neighbors to do a split. This is a steal at this price.
NYC folks, I split a six of this last time and really liked it, so I just ordered a case now. That said, I don’t mind parting with a few bottles so if anyone wants a small number, feel free to get in touch.
@irenegade@MuchoRojo Also bear in mind that those are conservative estimates, and offers leave the WCC warehouse between a couple days and a couple weeks after the offer. The estimates you see assume closer to a couple weeks.
(Nothing to do with you.) I hope you enjoy your free shipping for the paltry 4.99 a month, which you can cancel anytime, and come back. So, the entire “shipping per bottle” is useless if 4.99 gets you free shipping, which you can cancel.
Site tools? Kickstarter love? Just rub sand into my eyes.
@MuchoRojo where you live doesn’t make much of a difference (unless you’re in CA). Generally bottles get shipped a week or max two after sale ends, and take generally around 2 to 5 days to be delivered (unless it’s Summer: in that case it is a 2 days delivery guaranteed).
Welcome to Casemates! Yes, the monthly membership fee (5$) is totally worth (it does also give free shipping on meh.com; morningsave.com; etc)
I opened a bottle of this tonight with supper (I got a 6-pack during the previous offering). It’s a really nice red blend. Where else are you going to find a nice red blend aged 23 months for $10 (or less)??? My wife is not a huge red wine drinker, but she really liked this, which means it indeed does have “well integrated tannins” because she wouldn’t like it if it didn’t! In for another 6!
