Essere Franco
NV 'Essere Mi' Napa Valley Red

Whoa. The Dolum Sonoma Cab is NO MORE.

So how about we Double Agent up and take you to a Napa Cab, AND go a DOLLAR LOWER??!! read on…

That bold Essere Franco style at a low, low price. This is the daily driver red we know you’ll NEED for drinking with utter abandon, and zero regrets.

Thanks to a MASSIVE discount dropping it 75 PERCENT from $110 to a much more friendly $28.

Did you notice it’s missing the vintage? A fascinating story there, as they had a couple of reserve barrels left of 2016 and 2017 at the winery that tasted so damn good that they aged them all the way until the 2018s were ready to bottle, so they kept the 2018 percentage a high 83%, with those barrels added in for extra layers of complexity. Alas, the government dictates at least 95% for declaring the vintage on a label, so this barely missed that cut. An oversight on their part? Maybe. Helluva good deal for us? Absolutely!

The d’Ambrosio family has long grown grapes in Napa and sold to many of the top producers in the area. You’ve probably drank their grapes without knowing it in many a premier Napa blend. They have a massive 70 acres of prime fruit to choose from and this gets the best of the best. When they decided to make their own, they brought winemaker Tom Foster on board. And crushed it again, which is no surprise given his deep experience at Opus One, Groth & Lewis Cellars prior.

This offers up beguiling aromas and flavors of black and red cherry, blackberry, plum, spice cake, with an intriguing touch of tobacco leaf on the long finish. SO MUCH WINE for the money, making it ideal for the best gourmet weekday burgers you can flip, pop a bottle, and kick back with classiness to spare.

Jeb Dunnuck had wonderful things to say about a previous Essere Mi and we find this to have more of that “solid depth of fruit as well as medium to full-bodied richness on the palate, ripe tannins, and a solid finish. This is a big, rich, chewy effort to enjoy over the coming decade.”

Hallelujah! Restless abandon… ready, set, GO!
