WOW: Scary Good Wine AND Save the Date

WOW: Wine of the Week

Scary Good Wine AND Save the Date!

Bacchus Cabernet 2009

In the spirit of the looming Halloween celebrations, Uncorked is bringing you a frightfully good wine with a price tag that will not scare your budget.

Simple and understated in its black and white packaging, Bacchus Cabernet is a treat brought to us by David Gordon of Tribeca Grill, New York City.    At just $12.55 per bottle, this wine will likely be a new fixture in your everyday wine consumption.

Product Description

"David Gordon has been the Wine Director at Tribeca Grill since 1990. Several years ago, he began to use his contacts in Napa and Sonoma to source and produce wine under the Bacchus and Jeanne Marie (his wife) labels. Initially the small batches made were sold only at Tribeca Grill, Nobu and Montrachet. Producers such as Caymus, Lewis Cellars and Miner Family provided grapes and helped with the winemaking. As consumer interest grew, he decided to try and produce greater quantities and make the wine more available to retailers and other restaurants. There is great continuity on these wines now. Ripe and soft, easy to drink style blended with 20% Merlot." - Winery Notes
