WOW: X Winery: Super "Nova" (Vineyard) Zinfandel!

WOW: Wine of the Week

X Winery: Super "Nova" (Vineyard) Zinfandel!

X Winery ZinfandelJust in time for Father's Day, grab this BIG, BOLD Super "Nova" (Vineyard) Zinfandel for the special man in your life!  This Zinfandel is not for the weak of heart - or palate!

Here is the sad part though:  X Winery is phasing this product out of its portfolio FOREVER!  Well, at least for the foreseeable future.  With low yields and three years of colder vintages, X Winery has determined that following this vintage, they are going to focus on alternative products with higher yields.  NOW is the time to pick up this beauty at just $15 per bottle!

With this price and quality you can afford to get your Father a nice bottle of wine and a new tie, power tool, gadget, etc. without breaking the bank...your secret is safe with Uncorked!  Remember to mention this wine was also rated 87 points by Wine Advocate and you'll be your Father's hero for the day!

Product Description

"Planted in the mid 1960’s, Nova Vineyard is located on the bench lands of Kelseyville in Lake County, California. The vineyard is on an ancient alluvial riverbed at 1600 feet elevation near the base of Mount Konocti volcano. This Certified Organic Zinfandel Vineyard is planted on a 10 x 10 spacing. It is being farmed for the highest possible quality. This is achieved through proper timing of cover cropping, pruning, suckering, leaf removal and adjusting crop load." - Winery Notes
