Father’s Day is at hand, folks! Choosing a great gift can feel like a scramble some years, but you don’t have to fall prey to last-minute pitfalls like useless yard tech or jerky-of-the-month clubs. If classic and classy is more up your Pop’s alley, we have a lineup of Napa Cabernets that deliver finessed style at a value — and some good to last several Father’s Days into the future.
Pick the perfect match for your one-and-only old man, or snag extra special savings with our limited-time bundle of Clay Shannon and Clos de Napa Reserve Cabernets.
Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
From our friends behind the value-packed and Certified Sustainable High Valley wines, Clay Shannon Napa Cabernet is a bit more serious and refined take, showcasing rich and structured Napa fruit alongside tried-and-true Lake County grapes. Deep, dark blackberry, juicy plum, vanilla, black cherry, fig, currant, stewed blueberries, and polished tannins make Clay Shannon feel refined and gracious. Serve with Dad’s choice of grilled meats or even on its own beside a bonfire.
Clos de Napa
Reserve Cabernet 2016
A notably stellar vintage for Napa Valley, the grapes selected for this Clos de Napa Reserve bottling are showing tons of finesse and ageability. Vivid aromas of currant, green pepper, cassis, ripe cherry, warm allspice, and graphite jump from the glass, though the 24 months’ French oak aging make for a bold but suave palate. Ripe and decadent notes of cassis, rich black cherry, French oak toast and a touch of savory green peppercorn will continue to develop in the cellar or over the course of a nice Father’s Day dinner.
