2007 Summers “La Petite” Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (375 ml. half-bottles)
Reg. price: $18
Sale price: $10.99
Tom’s note: “A GREAT Napa Cabernet! A steal!”
Remember those tasty little half-bottles of Summers Cab we had on sale last September? Well, the folks lucky enough to have gotten some sure do. And the folks who wanted some and got shut out do too. Well, now the deal is back—and this time it’s even better. This time it’s of the quickly-becoming-legend 2007 vintage in the Napa Valley. “This is just a superb bottle of wine,” exclaims Cloverleaf’s Tom Natoci. “As good as any $40 Cabernet out there. Even at full retail it is a steal and we’re able to sell it at a 35% discount.” We received 20 cases this week, and we will get 20 more next week. And then…that’s all folks!
Last Week’s Malbec: Going, going…but wait!
2008 Trivento Malbec Golden Reserve
Sale price: $18.99 (no further discounts)
Last week we introduced you to an outstanding Malbec for less than twenty bucks, a wine we fully expect to pull a hefty 92 pt rating and prompted a customer to proclaim it a “superstar.” Our supplier offered us their “last 30 cases,” but when they heard how quickly it’s been selling (there were 10 bottles left as of 3 p.m. Wednesday), they promised they could scare up some more and have them here in 2 to 3 weeks. So stay tuned!
Tom’s Tasting Note: “Dark purple black color that stains the glass.  Rich, ripe blackberry and cassis aromas with a hint of vanilla oak tones.  Very full-bodied, chewy and concentrated mid-palate.  Lush texture of mocha, cassis & chocolate with smooth velvety tannins in a long balanced finish. Fantastic Malbec for the price! Tastes like thirty bucks.”
Our Weekly Recommendations…
Aside from our weekly features, there are great bottles everyday throughout our store. Each week we pull a few bottles from the hundreds on our shelves as representative great wines—from all price points on the spectrum—and put them on sale for the week ahead! The Collectible category will feature higher-end wines that make great gifts for wine collectors and can be cellared for many years.  Distinguished wines are those from the middle price range that we feel are eminently lovely and drinkable, truly exceptional in their style, and can be enjoyed now or cellared for several years. And Best Buys will feature! a Cloverleaf specialty—truly excellent wines you can’t find everywhere that often drink better than bottles you can find everywhere sold for twice the price. Here are this week’s selections:
