WOW: Size Matters!

WOW: Wine of the Week

New Year, New Pricing: Size Matters
Large Format Bottle Specials


Large Bottle Formats

What a very big (pun intended) week for Uncorked!  We had the ability to buy in on some large format bottles that have recently re-entered the Charlotte market.

Now is the time to stock up on these two large format offerings.  A large format bottle is the perfect hostess gift or a novelty item to share with guests or family.  There is just something delightfully special about the ability for all guests to share wine from the very same bottle.

Below are two low production wines available in large formats in the Charlotte market.

Quantities are limited, order today to secure your bottles!

Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Cabernet 2006, 1.5 Liters

"A complex blend of grapes from the greater Napa Valley and seven of its acclaimed appellations, this wine also incorporates a significant amount of fruit from our Estate vineyards. The result is a wine that strikes an effortless balance between dark fruit, oak and tannins. Classic Cabernet elements of black currant, dark cherry, plum and raspberry are accentuated by more subtle layers of mint and black olive. Though a big, structured and age-worthy wine, the tannins are beginning to soften, framing both the fruit and the oak-inspired vanilla and cocoa notes." - Winemaker Notes
Blend: A Bordeaux blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc.

Retail: $199.99
Uncorked Pricing: $79.99

J Cuvée 20 "Anniversary Label" N/V, 1.5 Liters

"The non-vintage J Cuvée 20 “Anniversary Label” gracefully opens up with crisp lemon peel, honeysuckle and delicate yeast aromas. Upon entry, these notes are followed by a mix of Fuji apple, grapefruit and a sweet hint of angel food cake. The mid-palate flavors are interlaced with toast, caramel, warm pear, and almond. The acidity adds just enough liveliness and the citrus zest leads to a lingering lush finish. This is the perfect celebratory wine. " - Winemaker Notes
