THE REVIEW

Where's the Chad?
You ran out of the Chad?!
When's the Chad coming back?!
We wouldn't call it hysteria, but it sure felt like a stampede when we ran out of our hottest new Cabernet blend this holiday season. The requests for more have been staggering.
How is so much demand tied to such a modestly priced Napa Valley Cabernet blend?
When we tasted this Napa newbie a few months ago, we knew it was going to be popular, but didn't expect it to be such a sensation. Juicy and powerful, the 2016 Chad Proprietary Red offers cassis, fresh blackberry, cedar, all-spice, violets, peppercorn, and round, ripe tannins. This is a luscious, easy-drinking fireside pour.
The Chad has concentration and length found in bottles twice its price; that’s because the juice in the bottle (we can't tell you from where) is twice the price!
This is a no-brainer as long as supply lasts.
Don’t miss this Napa newbie!
