Vice Versa Wine 2018 Pre-sale Offer


If there is anything positive coming out of the whole Covid-19/Quarantine situation, it is that with restaurants and tasting rooms mostly closed, we are being offered allocations of many wines we usually don't ever see here in NC. 

If you're not familiar with Vice Versa and love great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, you really should be.  Owner Patrice Breton was one of Canada's first world wide web entrepreneurs, and taking his company public in 2000 gave him the freedom and financial stability to pursue his other passion - wine. 
Becoming friends with super-star winemaker Paul Hobbs was the first happy accident that allowed Patrice and Vice Versa to produce world class wines from the very first release in 2003.  Hobbs has since turned the winemaking duties over to another of Napa's superstar winemakers, Philippe Melka and his team headed by Myaan Koschitzky.  If you're a Taylor's regular, you know that we're huge fans of Myaan and everything he makes and we think he is one of Napa's hottest, up and coming winemakers.
The wines from Vice Versa are consistently ranked and rated among the best that Napa Valley has to offer.  They have also rounded out their offerings with spectacular Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Sonoma's Platt Vineyard.
Because of our relationship with Myaan and Patrice's wife Samantha, both of whom we fell in love with during various visits to North Carolina, we are the first in Raleigh to receive the offering of their new 2018 wines.  Supply on these wines is very limited, less than 2 cases of some items are being shipped to NC.
The 2018's are just being released, and haven't been rated by anyone that we trust and could find, so we've included the scores for the 2017's, which was a good vintage but everyone agrees that the 2018's are even better!

To confirm quantities and pre-sale prices you must order by Noon Wednesday, September 16th. 
Wines will arrive to Taylor's and will be available for pickup or shipping in 2-3 weeks after ordering period closes.

Vice Versa 2018 Steltzner Vineyard Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon
Introducing our inaugural Steltzner vineyard designate, which embodies the axiom that exceptional Cabernet sites not only deliver jaw-dropping pleasure, but also imprint indelible accents of their origin in the glass. This is a handsome, graceful wine draped with raspberry, violet, bay laurel and laced with a flint-like minerality and verve. A brilliant illustration of the marginally cooler Stags Leap District, our Stelztner bottling concludes with measured hints of cedar and graphite outlined by an alluring finesse. 100 cases produced. – Martin R. Reyes MW
