2014 BEAST Phinny Hill Vineyard "Reserva Style' Malbec
Regular: $37 Your exclusive price: $30
This is no meek and mild malbec. In fact, in its youth, the malbec from Phinny Hill can be so ferocious that we developed our 'Reserva' program to tame its wild tannins. Now, after 21 months in barrel and two years in bottle, this BEAST has emerged with a regal, leonine power that exudes inky richness and flavors of black raspberry, plum, blackberry, licorice, anise and sweet maple spice. Juicy and energetic, it is a dazzling creature that will bring great joy when introduced to family and good friends during the holidays ahead.
2016 BEAST Phinny Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Regular: $42 Your exclusive price: $37
Made from 100% cabernet, the core of this wine comes from a prized block at the top of Phinny Hill where stiff winds and rocky Spartan soils yield an alpha cab, with glorious structure, robust tannins and luxurious layers of fruit. And yet, because of the influence of the nearby river, and the cooling winds, this is also a beautifully dynamic BEAST that carries its power and weight with a graceful nonchalance. After 20 months in 30% new oak, it is strutting its signature Horse Heaven Hills perfumed aromatics, along with classic cabernet flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, sweet tobacco leaf, woodsy cedar and violet. Intense and mesmerizing, it is a magical BEAST that will reward your affections for years to come.
May Halloween haunt your home brightly!
With a wink!
