So, a little more background on this special wine. This is a project from Brent Sloan - he was the GM at Outpost for many years where got to work with one of Napa's most famous winemakers, Thomas Rivers Brown.
We see and taste a LOT of "Cab" in the shop and we don’t sell much of what we taste mostly because the price/market is too high compared to what we already offer. PRECIADO is the best Cabernet in a VERY long time under $100 - period. At $50 for this Napa Cab with this much power and richness is an unheard-of deal!
We blew through the first 6 cases in August in 2 days and have more that just walked in the door.
Important News from Preciado:
"We are beyond thrilled to mention that this past Saturday (Feb 2019) a 5 case auction lot of our upcoming 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon sold for $12,000 ($200 per bottle). Benefiting charity, the Premiere Napa Valley auction brings some of the most discerning trade buyers (restaurants and retailers) from throughout the US and the world to Napa Valley. The amount our wine sold for eclipsed some very well established Napa brands and we couldn’t be happier. Our entire winemaking team works hard to bring you Napa’s best fruit and bottle it at a reasonable price."

WINE GROWER NOTES
The 2016 Preciado incorporates exceptional, hand-harvested fruit from our small partner growers in Eastern Yountville and Coombsville. Within each site, we conduct meticulous blending trials to understand the vineyard’s contributions to the overall flavor and texture of the finished wine. By carefully integrating these individual lots, we create a rich spectrum on the palate and cohesive expression of Napa Valley.
The 2016 vintage Preciado offers an inviting inky color, deep blue and black fruit aromas with hints of dark plum and cocoa. A lush palate of textured tannins leads the way with flavors of decadent dark fruit, black cherry, anise and cedar with a well structured, earthy finish.
