Grapes Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Volume 6.3 oz (187 ml)
Special Limited Release
Aged 10 years in barrel and bottled at its peak, this is a Bordeaux-like blend cellared in neutral oak to create a wine that is bold, smooth, delicious, and unique. A truly special experience to enjoy by the glass.
So good, it sold out.
Aged to perfection
A decade tucked away in a barrel does wonders for a wine. Concentrating and ripening the fruit flavors from bright and tart to bold and smooth, the oak melts into the flavor profile while the tannins soften and integrate. It’s truly a rare treat to find a wine aged this carefully and long - and then nearly unheard of to make it available by the glass.
A worthy challenge
The decision to age wine is always difficult (read: tuck it away without a sale). But this 2012 had so much potential that the winemakers decided to set aside a few hundred gallons. Every few months, the barrels would be tasted and topped, and just a few weeks ago, we had the epiphany that the wine was ready.
With just over 6 barrels left after the angel’s share evaporated to the heavens and the oak absorbed its toll, the end result is a red wine that is silky, rich, and worthy of admiration.
Have fine wine and drink it too
Aged like fine wine but available by the glass. No need to save this bottle for one special occasion when you can have it across several occasions. A truly unique experience exclusive to Usual drinkers. Celebrating the everyday is the new Usual.
Reviews, as Usual
This reserve wine has the smoothest and most exotic taste I have ever had! I tried ordering more and it was sold out!!! I was so disappointed. Next time it’s available I will double my order.
This is a perfect glass of wine . I love it
Very smooth and rich in flavor. Pairs well with merlot Bella vitano cheese.
I bought this as a special treat for myself and I wasn’t disappointed. The wine is sweet and has a rounded feeling. I wouldn’t buy it again every day since it was so much, but I will savor all of these that I bought : )
Full bodied, and hit every note perfectly… my only complaint is that I wish I’d bought more… I hope you all do another limited reserve 🙏
