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 37% from its original 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, but should be big hits with everyone. All offered up a great price that amounts for big savings!
The 2023 Gobbler Case Includes:
(3) Bouvet-Ladubay Brut Rose NV (92pts, Tasting Panel – 90pts, Decanter)
This is the first time we’ve offered anything from Bouvet-Ladubay, and there’s probably no better place to start than this exceptional pink sparkler value. They’re a lights out Saumur producer in the Loire Valley that has been around since 1851 – and they’ve built a strong reputation based on the quality of their traditional méthode sparkling wines. This one has a 90 from Decanter who called it “A delicious Cremant that punches well above the weight of its price tag”. Tasting Panel gave it a 92, and called out the energy and minerality that it brings. Such a great holiday sparkler.
(3) Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2021 (A NW All-Time Favorite)
Quilt is arguably our most popular wine each year and it can be found for $45 or more in the store… or – for an absolute steal, you can get it as part of this year’s Gobbler Case. It comes from the Wagner Family of Caymus fame and features delicious Cabernet fruit from Oakville, St. Helena, Coombsville, Atlas Peak, Calistoga and Howell Mountain. Pretty insane.
(3) Elvio Cogno Langhe Nascetta di Novello 2021 (92pts, Jeb Dunnuck)
Our allocation of Feudo Montoni Catarratto Del Masso 2021 actually ran out – but do not fret! What did I do? I replaced it with another gorgeous white wine, and this one is actually a bit more pricey with a bigger score! It comes from one of Piedmont’s all-time great producers in Elvio Cogno and is an indigenous white wine of the region. It’s an intense wine with aromas of grapefruit, green apple, flowers and even a dash of honey. On the palate, it’s fresh and clean with great structure, a little bit of a creamy lemon vanilla finish. Drop dead gorgeous.
(3) Hahn Appellation Series Pinot Noir 2021 (90pts, Editors’ Choice, Wine Enthusiast))
The Hahn Family consistently makes excellent wines for great prices, which is why they’ve become a Nicholas Wines favorite in the last few years. The ‘Appellation Series’, which is the family’s Estate Pinot Noir, always shows strong accents from the unique Monterey County terroir that the Hahn Family have been championing since the 1980’s. The key to their success is an estate that sits in an ancient dry riverbed that’s full of well-drained sandy-loam. The ground is scattered with river stones known as ‘Greenfield Potatoes’ (named for the adjacent town of Greenfield, CA), a pivotal part of the terroir that helps store and release heat in the vineyard. This is some of the best under $30 California Pinot you’re going to find.
