Fine Wine For Everyone
Nothing is more important than quality. It’s what’s in the bottle that counts.
At Slingshot, our singular goal is to bring you a great bottle of Napa Valley wine at a reasonable price. We’re not interested in perplexing you. Wine is about enjoying the experience.
Our attitude borders on irreverent. Slingshot is about putting your best foot forward while forgetting about fitting into the mold or following the rules. Be bold, be adventurous, choose your own path, and above all remember to have fun.
That’s what we aim for with every bottle of Slingshot. Great wine for sticking up for the little guy; even better for relaxing with friends.

“Complex yet approachable, the Slingshot North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of dark cheery and tobacco…"
Ah, yes, I remember the dark, yet somehow cheery days… [from the casemates.com page tasting notes (it’s correct on the comments page, above]
Slingshot has become an instant buy for me. It’s a really solid every day drinker at a very reasonable price. Every time we’ve gotten it I’m always wishing I had a couple more bottles around when the case is done.
@Winedavid49 Sure. He gave you his email, etc., so it seems like you have free reign to contact him. Unless someone on this forum knows something. Hmmm. I know someone out there knows what happened to fredrinaldi. Squeal before we have to interrogate you (with wine).
Only complaint (sort of) is that a couple of bottles had noticeable sediment, and I hadn’t planned to decant the bottle(s), but I can deal with it. Very nice, drinkable wine that goes with everything, and a great buy at $10/bottle!
