Special Offers from the Mountain Men at Smith-Madrone

Crafting Amazing Wines Since 1971 & Celebrating our First Berserker Day!


Dear Berserkers:

We’re delighted to participate in BerserkerDay IX.

In case we’re new to you …this is what Todd French had to say on his recent visit …
Todd F r e n c h wrote:“One of the most recommended wineries when I asked for 'mountain fruit' recommendations for this trip, and I see why. Ridiculous value for the quality of the wine, and across the board fantastic wines, so I'm definitely buying. The Chardonnay is incredible, considering it has 100% new oak! It tastes NOTHING like any other Chardonnay I've had with 100% new oak, and Charles was saying that they discovered, after much trial and error, that for some reason, this mountain fruit just 'handles' the new oak well. It's full of acidity, and well balanced, and has no 'popcorn'/butter component whatsoever.

The Estate Cabernet is a ridiculous value for mountain Cabernet Sauvignon - has that 'mountain fruit' nose I love so much, great mouthfeel and tannic structure, but drinks well now as well, with the '14 release.

The Riesling was what we finished with, and it is very Alsatian in character - dry but ample sweetness for 'typical' Riesling food pairings, but what makes this wine really stand out is its acidity - really strong, yet perfectly balanced. One of the best domestic Rieslings I've ever had, by far. So much longevity in this family operation, and I was awed by the size of their facility (small) compared with their relatively large production, particularly considering they hold their wines often before releasing them, which is a pricey proposition that benefits the customer more than them, for certain!”
Lots of accolades have come our way…we may be proudest of having been chosen as The Daily Meal’s Winery of the Year in 2014, and to have been in the top ten of their 2017 Best Wineries in America. Our wine has also been featured in the Top 100 Wines in Wine & Spirits Magazine.

Our offer today focuses on our Riesling. We were very proud to have won the Gault-Millau Wine Olympics in Paris for our Riesling in 1979. We are long-time champions of this varietal; in the 1980s Stu fought to have American Riesling be indicated on the label as “Riesling” vs. the former nomenclature “Johannisberg Riesling.” He was successful in that fight and in 1984 the BATF did change their regulations. We were also honored by having been named the best Riesling in North America in Stuart Pigott’s book Best Wine on Earth: The Riesling Story.


And now the best part --- the offers! On some wines quantities are limited so order fast before we run out!

Ground shipping UPS
CA - $30 case or $20 6 bottles or less
Other 47 $50 cases or $30 6 bottles or less

If your weather is bad we’re happy to hold the wine for you till it’s safe to ship.

I take some 'responsibility' for this one, wanting to drag them in. Amazing wines, great people. Gotta wait until tomorrow, though!!!
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

That is too bad Joe. The discount more than makes up for the shipping. Great wine and great people. They don't discount, so this is a very special offer. Their wines are a great value.

I agree with Dave, the discount negates the shipping cost. In for a Mountain Medley ... [cheers.gif]

This was my only BD purchase as I'm trying to stick to a budget. Never tried anything from Smith-Madrone but everything I've read was so favorable I knew I'd kick myself if I didn't take offer #1. Looking forward to some great wines!
