Thanksgiving is the type of occasion that is infinitely improved by having great wines on the table. This year, I have you covered in a big way. We found a number of absolute gems – some extremely highly rated, all great values and perfect for Turkey day. Then, we discounted the case 34% from its SRP. That’s a slamming deal – and our biggest discount ever.
Four very different wines (three bottles each) that all bring something different to the table offered up a great price that amounts for big savings! A delicious Russian River Pinot Noir that is always a NW favorite, the return of the Gobbler-exclusive Chad McKinley Springs Cabernet Sauvignon, a very highly rated, juiced up Sangiovese from the kings of Chianti, iconic Castello di Volpaia and last but not least, a double-90 point gorgeous bottle of bubbles in the form of a zippy yet elegant Crémant d’Alsace Brut Rosé courtesy of Pierre Sparr. A little something for everyone for $110/case OFF the regular price (34%). You simply cannot beat this Gobbler Case!
The 2022 Gobbler Case includes 3 bottles of each:
Davis Bynum Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2018 (91pts, WE – 91pts, JS)
Chad Cabernet Sauvignon McKinley Springs 2020 (Gobbler Exclusive)
Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico 2020 (93 pts, JS – 92 Pts, WS)
Pierre Sparr Crement d’Alsace Brut Rose N.V. (Double 90+ Pt Scores)
Davis Bynum Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2018
The Pinot Noir they make is always crafted like a painter going to work on a blank canvas. Petaluma Gap for its richness. The darkness and silky tannin provided by the warmer Santa Rosa plains fruit. And then the cherry on top is the rich, deep spice element – provided by a very special lot from the Middle Reach Neighborhood on West Side Road. A little bit of everything that all comes together. The result is spicy, generous Pinot that drinks well above its station due to the quality of the single parcels that were so expertly chosen. It’s pretty dang hard to resist.
Chad Cabernet Sauvignon McKinley Springs 2020
Chad’s latest Cabernet project is about a savvy a play as I’ve seen from him and that’s saying a lot. He found a few choice plots in the Horse Heaven Hills that really deliver juicy, powerful, full-bodied Cabernets with great acidic backbones that make it an exceptional choice with a lot of different foods. But then you factor in his winemaking expertise and you really his newest project is a about another near half off stunner that is the epitome of why everyone loves the Chad wines.
Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico 2020
Most folks at Nicholas Wines know Castello di Volpaia as the winery responsible for the highest ever rated Chianti Riserva in the history of Wine Spectator, despite a rather modest price tag. It just speaks to the exceptional quality of this producer and how they can out-class all their neighbors, even the folks at $350+/bottle. Their regular Chianti Classico is perhaps the best value in Chianti each year, and in 2020 this is no exception. We didn’t get enough of this gem thanks to a big 93-point score from Suckling and a 92-point score from Wine Spectator that accompanied it on release. But I got enough to include it today. This is a ‘must-have’ bottle come Thanksgiving time.
Pierre Sparr Crement d’Alsace Brut Rose N.V.
This is an awesome pink Sparkler that absolutely jumps out of the glass. A Brut made from 100% Pinot Noir, it’s a gorgeous salmon hue with fresh aromas of strawberry and raspberry. On the palate, it’s round and fruity with hints of peach. The flavors are intense, with lively acidity framed by a well-made structure and delicate bubbles. The finish is smooth, clean and dry, making it a great sparkler to pair with food, but there’s so much personality here – it can easily stand alone as well.
