The premise is that after you’ve opened a couple of really good bottles, you shouldn’t be drinking your premium wines anymore – but we always wants to have just one more glass. The 3rd Bottle was designed to be that easy to drink, easy on the wallet wine that, we think, will also become your everyday wine. For this wine, Gustavo made a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Malbec and Cinsault. It was aged in French oak for 18 months before bottling. It has a vibrant, spicy nose that shows layers of smoke, vanilla and cherries. It has a rich, full, smooth mouth with lingering hints of dark blueberry and tobacco. This is an extremely well-balanced wine with a lush mouth.
Bottle: $37.50; maximum 3 bottle purchase
