Substance Cabernet Sauvignon
2013 | Washington State
I was going to hold off on this wine until later in the week but I just can’t … this is pedal to the metal wine and it’s moving fast* so we’ve got to act.
This wine is on fire for good reason: It’s great Washington State Wine from the Master of Washington, Charles Smith, it tastes fantastic, there is a stellar score coming (90 to 93 points from Parker’s Wine Advocate), and it has a price that is simply silly.
Here is what Jeb Dunnuck from Parker says:
Another stunner from the team at Charles Smith, the 2013 Substance is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend that comes from the higher elevation vineyards of Goose Ridge and Frenchman Hills. Harvested in early November and aged in 40-50% new French oak, it sports gorgeous aromas and flavors of cassis, violets, pencil shavings and tobacco/herbs to go with a medium to full-bodied, layered, rich and beautifully balanced profile on the palate. Scheduled to be bottled in December, it tastes like a wine that taste 3-4 times what this is going for. It is a knockout value. It should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer. -Jeb Dunnuck
So here is the deal:
The best price on the web, right now, is $17.
That is our price too. $16.99. This wine is worth way more than that but the going price has been set and so it goes.
Do as Jeb suggests and go in for a case and the price drops to a, I said above: silly, $13.99 a bottle. That is a 27% discount.
* – This wine is indeed moving fast. The distributor of this wine sold a massive pile of it yesterday and even more this morning. We can get plenty as of right now (thus the 2nd email in one day for some) but won’t be able to get much more by tomorrow. Please, do think about it and order up if you think that this might be up your alley.
