A Great Five-Dollar Bottle Of Napa Valley Wine

Cornerstone Cellars 2013 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

2013 Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Cornerstone Cellars is a very respected Napa Valley Winery with a busy tasting room in Yountville. Vintage Taster  Mike and I were flabbergasted to find the 2013 Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc at the Redwood City Grocery Outlet for $4.99. We checked the Cornerstone Cellars Website for this wine, and there is no mention of it. The 2012 is selling on their wine shop for $30. We both sampled the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc and were even more flabbergasted at how great this wine tasted. At $4.99, this is a crazy wine bargain. I have been to the Cornerstone Cellars tasting room, and their wines are excellent and priced accordingly.

It is a mystery how this wine found its way to a Grocery Outlet volume purchase. Too much inventory, a distribution issue, or maybe a quick cash sale. Whatever the reason, it is not because the wine lacks quality. The wine is a beauty of deal at this price.

Mike’ Tasting Notes – 2013 Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Brilliant clear golden color with a touch of oak. Cross between Sancerre and Chablis on dry stone fruit aroma and flavor. Not your typical grassy high acid SB from other parts of the state. This winery is a high-end producer and spares no expense on fruit or wine making. Nice package and good drinking for the rest of the year. 88/89 points for price and quality.

Joe’s Tasting Notes – 2013 Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

The S.B. has a rounded and soft mouthfeel. It is a lush Sauvignon Blanc with loads of character and balance. Although 2013 might be somewhat old for most Sauvignon Blanc wines, the Cornerstone S.B. is ready to be opened and enjoyed. It is a classic old-world style of Sauvignon Blanc. No big grapefruity character or crisp acidity. A fantastic deal and I rate it 89 points. It will not last very long at the Grocery Outlet. Call your nearest Grocery Outlet and, if they have, go for it!
