COULD THIS BE THE LAST WINE WOOT-OFF EVER?

Could this be the last wine Woot-Off ever? Probably not, no. But there's a lesson here: Live every day like it's the last Woot-Off. Treat every moment like the "Buy" button is urgently pulsating. Spend buttloads of money on impulse items. Carpe Stuff.

2011 Slingshot Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 6-Pack

Everyday Drinking With A Mischievous Smile

Our family proudly crafts the wines of Slingshot from our Napa Valley vineyard - delicious wines of character and complexity. Enjoy Slingshot as you forge your own path and discover your own adventure. Remember, wine should be fun!

This is a complex young red made in an approachable, drinkable style, but with plenty of links to its deep roots in profound Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Opening with a classic ripe aroma of berries, currants and hints of dried herbs and cedary oak, there wafts over the top an impression of graphite that hints at depth and richness to come. In the mouth the wine begins with a medium-bodied structure showing only a slight grip of ripe tannins, giving it a round, balanced feel that begs to be drunk straight away. The flavors of berries, dark cherries, currants and herbs are more effusive than the aroma, suggesting that the youthful aroma will expand with some bottle age which will be supported by the dash of astringency lurking in the long finish.

At Slingshot, our singular goal is to bring you a great bottle of Napa Valley wine at a reasonable price. We’re not interested in perplexing you. Nor do we churn out case after case that all tastes similarly dumbed down. Wine is about enjoying the experience. It should be inviting and challenging fun with a discernable backbone.
 
That’s what we aim for with every bottle of Slingshot. Great wine for sticking up for the little guy; even better for relaxing with friends.
 
Slingshot is a family effort shepherded by James Stewart, one of Napa Valley’s next generation winemakers—a group of young men and women assuming central roles in legacy wine businesses. James joins his peers in focusing on issues surrounding sustainability, preservation, labor practices and maintaining family-owned businesses. Slingshot reflects his ambition to preserve a vital family enterprise and practice meaningful land stewardship—both while producing unpretentious fine wine.
