Lightning Proprietary Red Cease & Desist 2015
#5 in our mini-marathon! If our accountant was annoyed with us now, she hasn’t seen anything yet!
This is nuts -- but we’re just getting rolling -- do you know how much crazy wine is in this crazy warehouse?? We lucked into a tiny batch of this super-tasty little beauty at an eye-popping OVER 60% OFF, a rich and savory Chateauneuf-du-Pape-styled blend from a winemaker with a SERIOUS resume! Ludicrously well-priced today…
Proprietor/winemaker Randy Hester started his career at Cakebread Cellars, and also had the good fortune to work with many highly acclaimed winemakers such as Andy Erickson, Michel Rolland, Mike Hirby, and Helen Keplinger, at various distinguished producers including Colgin, Caldwell, Realm, and Marciano (these all pretty much roll well in the 3-digit and up category…!).
A tongue-in-cheek reference to a narrowly avoided litigious moment in Lightning Wines’ history, we thought this was simply a knockout with a big, soaring, savory, meaty nose of dark, voluptuous fruit, strawberry, roasted spices, teriyaki, toast and earth, and relatively light on its feet for such a flavor-packed wine. For $15??? 60% OFF? As my Dad used to say…"don’t blink, or you’ll miss it…" Not a lot of this one!!
