The critics are still raving about California’s 2016 vintage, and wine merchants across the U.S. are now rushing to snap up the best of the remaining bottles. Which means now more than ever, it all comes down to who you knowif you want the biggest bang for your buck.
Our scout on the ground, Clare Tooley (who has one of the most enviable Rolodexes around), happens to be very good friends with the talented Reed Renaudin, who makes “exceptional bargains,” according to top critic Robert Parker. Parker goes on to say that “shrewd consumers should be buying [Reed’s wines] by the case load.” We heartily agree.
Over a few vintages, Reed’s Prospector red – which he makes exclusively for us – has struck gold (in the form of medals!) at some of the U.S.’s top wine competitions. And the just-launched 2016 release already boasts a prestigious silver medal from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
Flavor-packed Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Malbec, and Syrahdeliver mouthfuls of ripe black cherry fruit with lovely, spicy oak notes. All that character that will really come alive if you decant about 30 minutes before serving. Pair with hearty beef dishes or enjoy on its oh-so-smooth own.
