This is cool. The winery called me on Tuesday and said
they 'found' 420 cases of Pennywise Merlot in the winery and asked
if I could sell it for them. I asked..."at $4.99?" Here
it is, the last 420 cases...$4.99/bottle
Serve this special at room temperature with slow cooked short
ribs or chicken in arrabbiata sauce. You will not forget the experience.
The folks at Pennywise stopped by Tuesday (regular tasting day).
I was impressed by the simple package, and BLOWN AWAY
by the wine.
Trying not to pant, I asked how much they had...Only 300 cases.
Then I explained my email specials and how I have to give
the best value on any wine I feature...and then I dropped the other
"I want to sell this for $4.99...buy one bottle or 10",
and I shut my mouth (wonder if they could see I was going to buckle
if they said no). But they said
and here it is....Pennywise 2010 Merlot...oak aged and at its
peak right now...will stay peaked for 12 months...so thrilled to
get this to you...and then at $4.99...Wow!
Rich nose of dark fruit and berries. Hints of vanilla and spice.
Medium weight on the palate with great balance between fruit and
