The Phantom

The black magic is back — Phantom. Three unique varietals combine lush berry and fierce spice into a full-bodied wine. Intensely fruit forward on the entry, this deep ruby apparition begins with aromas of blueberries, violets and chocolate-covered cherries, dusted with touches of black pepper. Welcome the winery ghost into your home again with this latest vintage, and enjoy with full-flavored and hearty meals before it vanishes again. Deeply discounted for $15.95/bottle! Grab it today! Cheers.

This deal is going to be pretty cut and dry. I just got 15 cases (90 bottles) of the newly released Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch 2010 Bourbon Whiskey. This bourbon got rated 5 Stars/Highest Recommendation from the Spirit Journal and 4 1/2 Stars from About.com. Pretty good scores!

I don’t think I need to tell you this is a rare whiskey. Only 3,600 bottles were produced and I had to put my order in 7 months ago. I asked for the State allocation, but I only got 15 cases. I’m sure that’s more than anyone else got, but I still wanted it all. Unfortunately, we can’t always get what we want. Oh, well. The suggested retail price on this bourbon is $80/bottle. I’m sure I can easily get that price, but I’m not going to be a pig. Until I sell out, which will probably be by today, I’m going to put the Four Roses LE 2010 on sale for $69.99/bottle. This whiskey is priced to move. Don’t wait to order.

BELIEVE THE HYPE! There have been PROFOUND California Cabs from the 2007 vintage, a year that has seen MONGO REVIEWS across the board! Add to that an oversupply of uber-premium
Napa & Sonoma juice and BAMM you’ve got Cameron Hughes, this country’s most important, highly regarded, domestic negotiant.

The model is simple: Cameron Hughes partners with top-tier wineries, bottles their original, unadulterated wines as “Lots”, and sells them for a fraction of the original price. His pedigree has been unquestionable, which is why he has blazed a trail garnering legions of followers, especially on wine bulletin boards and the blogosphere.

Today’s offer, the 2007 Cameron Hughes Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 173 IS EXCEPTIONAL!!! It is directly sourced from Knights Valley & Chalk Hill from a Cabernet Sauvignon producer (Shhhhh!) whose release price goes for $50-75/bottle: LOT 173 CRUSHES THIS PRICE — $16.99/bottle!!! After tasting, I jumped on the last 42 cases from the winery-the wine is here today but will be gone tomorrow-Buy Now! Cheers!

I will admit it. I bought WAY to many cases of Sam Smith Winter Welcome 18.6oz Bottles. How badly did I overbuy? Well, let me put it this way. I bought 4-times more this year than I did last year. That’s a lot! Since I hate sending things back, I thought I’d just bite the bullet and lower the cost when you buy it by the case.

So, here’s what I’m gonna do. For the rest of the week, I’m going to put a case of Sam Smith Winter Welcome on sale for $36/case. That breaks down to $3/bottle. If you are thinking about taking advantage of this special, remember this. Some of the seasonal beers are normally long gone before the season is over. Don’t wait to order.

Check this out: last month, I championed an unrated wine that ended up landing the most recent cover of Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Best Buys Issue. I must be doing something right!

I have an INCREDIBLE Cabernet Sauvignon Deal from Oddfjell Vineyards ‘Armador’ hailing from Chile’s Maipo Valley. This deal is a steal, given the complexity of flavors it shows: concentrated blackberry, captivating mint, and brisk minerality. Even Josh Raynolds of Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, agreed, calling it “utterly delicious”!!!

By the bottle, you can pick this up for the sale price of $9.99. BUT, buy a case and you will get it for $84!!! Think about it – a wine I guarantee will impress that comes down to $7/bottle!?!? Jump on this deal today! Cheers!

Right off the bat, I can guarantee you this. There is only a small window to order todays special. I say this because todays special is low-production, has miniscule distribution and uber-tiny allocations. Is uber-tiny even a word? Probably not, but I’m sure I’m being crystal clear in regard to availability.

Earlier this week, I got a visit from John Glaser, founder of Compass Box, and Robin Robinson, Compass Box Whisky Ambassador and all around “Great Guy”. They came to taste me on the soon to be released Compass Box 10th Anniversary Flaming Heart Scotch Whisky. Only 4000 bottles were produced. The US got 1800 bottles. So far, my distributor got 10 cases, which I took. Will more be coming? I have no idea. As I write this e-mail, I don’t even have the cases. This is dangerous because if this e-mail upsets anyone, my distributor can easily refuse to send me the cases. Lets hope that doesn’t happen.

I’ve said multiple times that I’m not a huge fan of peaty whiskies. It’s become a contest to see how much peat and smoke you can jam into a bottle. It takes away from the complexity. If there were ever a peaty whisky I would drink, this would be it. There is a nice balance of peat and smoke upon first taste followed by a sweetness on the back-end. As I was talking to John and Robin, I found myself taking more sips. Every sip I took, the more I loved this whisky. I NEVER thought I’d say that about a “peaty” whisky.

I was told the suggested retail price would be $99.99/bottle. That’s high! My 60 bottles will be on sale for $79.99/bottle. Truthfully, I’m sure I can sell them for $99.99, but I don’t have the heart to over-charge you, like I’m sure everyone else will. That last sentence might be the one that puts the kibosh on my cases. Lets hope not because the whisky is AWESOME!
