We traveled 2,838 miles to find this.
And it was well worth the trip.

Earlier this year, our wine team traveled to Washington State to attend Taste of Washington, a show that highlights many of the top producers in the region. We tasted hundreds of wines in all price points ... but the one that really stood out ... was this.

If we can make one request to every single client on this list who drinks Cabernet Sauvignon based blends ... it's this.

Buy some of this wine for $19.99 per bottle.

Buy a case or ... if you normally buy cases of Cabernet from California in the $19.99 per bottle price range ... buy more than one. Buy 2. We can't stress this enough. This is one of the best red blends we have tasted in this price point in years!

We know that once our customers try it ... it will drive home the point that we are the place to go to find those under-the-radar estates!!

A 90 Point, $19.99 Cabernet based blend that will rival Napa
This Cabernet Sauvignon based blend is a ridiculous steal for this price!

Those of you who look for those really outstanding red blends from Napa will end up scratching your head after you taste this fantastic release from Pomum. Scratching your head wondering how it is possible to get something with this much structure, elegance and concentration ... at a price point of $19.99 per bottle.  

Taste the wine and then give a quick look at the label for your first clue. This wine gives you the complexity and structure you would expect from a top flight Napa Valley red blend. The fruit is gorgeous. The finish goes on for 60+ seconds. Only ... it's not from Napa. It's from Washington State.  

Talk about flying under the radar! Well ... almost under the radar.

Stephen Tanzer from Vinous raved over this wine and issued an outstanding 90 Point score, remarking:  

"Bright dark red. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and herbs. Rich, fine-grained and lively, with an enticing sweetness to its supple dark fruit, licorice, cocoa powder and menthol flavors. Suave, youthful, fresh wine with smooth tannins and lovely rising length. At once densely packed and lively--very well done."

Not familiar with Pomum?  
Read below to see why this is a name to know for sure.

"Pomum Cellars is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Javier and Shylah Alfonso. Originally from the famed Ribera del Duero region in Spain, winemaker Javier Alfonso is determined to showcase a true expression of wine grown in the unique viticultural areas in Washington State.

Our Red Wine blend is designed to showcase the juicy red fruit characteristics characteristic of Bordeaux varieties grown in the Yakima Valley. Upland Cabernet Sauvignon and Dineen Cabernet Franc account for the majority of the blend which consists of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, 9% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot.  The wine is dark crimson in color with noticeable red fruit and exotic spice aromas. On the palate, it shows black cherry, red cranberry and a hint of mouthwatering “herbs de provence”. It is texturally where the vintage shines, with fine elegant tannins and a long finish." - Winery
Bottom line ... this is an outstanding red that we flat out flipped for!!  Enjoy this while it lasts!
