For wine lovers, uncovering a decadent Cabernet Sauvignon under the $30 mark can be a lot like plucking a gold nugget from a shallow stream – rare and very exciting. Luckily for you, we did the legwork and found the perfect ‘golden’ specimen, crafted exclusively for you by our top-secret winemaker, the talent at one of the Golden State’s best-known estates.
Goldstrike Bin 1849 is pure Cab, grown at the base of the historic Sierra Foothills – epicenter of the California Gold Rush and home to notoriously rich, ripe reds. Factor in the current “Golden Age” for California wine (2017 is another in a string of phenomenal vintages) and all the conditions are right for maximum flavor impact. The wine was treated to a 16-month slumber in French oak and boasts a history of acclaim at top competitions. In fact, the 2017 release sports a silver medal from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
Look forward to a deep, red-purple color, with hints of tobacco leaf and smoke accenting the intense berry aroma. The palate is rich and powerful, introducing blueberry and sweet cassis, along with smooth tannins. Dark chocolate and spice round out the long finish.
Follow the label’s advice and serve Goldstrike with a rack of lamb (or a plate of beans by the campfire). It’s also a ‘golden’ choice for steaks, burgers, and hearty pastas.
However you decide to enjoy it, Goldstrike is guaranteed to impress. Order your share now.
