Sock It To Me!

Imagine drinking some of Napa’s best Cabernet Sauvignon without spending a small fortune. “Liar,” you say to me. Not so. Punch Vineyards is a unique animal – they source their Cabernet from various vineyards from Napa, even Sonoma and elsewhere if need be, to craft an excellent wine without the overhead and costs of having their label says it’s from Napa, hence the designate on the label is just “California” (meaning grapes sourced for the wine can come from anywhere in the state.) And this is the only wine they produce. This has it all - a judicious use of oak, black cherry, raspberry blackberry, vanilla a seductive deep, rich quality. Their tag line is “Made by insiders for insiders,” and that’s pretty much true as they have an abundance of experience in and around Napa. It’s not widely available, but you can get it at some retail and online outlets and I daresay if you drink Punch you won’t be punch drunk – you’ll be wildly happy with this wine. PUNCH
