Chester's Anvil - SOLD OUT The last few cases, 63% off!

#1 Post by Carole Meredith » January 25th, 2019, 12:08 pm

Chester's Anvil was a wondrous collaboration among friends and neighbors — Aaron and Claire Pott of Pott Wine and Steve Lagier and Carole Meredith of Lagier Meredith Vineyard. We created Chester's Anvil as an excuse to work (and drink) together and to be able to offer wines beyond our usual purview. And they were wonderful wines – complex, balanced, unpretentious and easy to drink. But after the 2013 vintage we decided to bring this party to a halt. Our individual endeavors, Pott Wines and Lagier Meredith Vineyard, were keeping us too busy to make and manage the Chester’s Anvil wines too. We have a few cases left of 2 of the wines -- the 2013 Hattori Hanzo and the 2013 Mead Ranch Zinfandel. We're offering them at a huge discount, over 60% off, so you can help us finish them off.

Links to CellarTracker tasting notes are way down at the very bottom. Questions? Please email me at mail@lagiermeredith.com

Chester’s Anvil 12-bottle case for $180 – a 63% discount

A full case (12 750ml bottles) of either of these wines
  • 2013 Chester's Anvil Hattori Hanzo (Napa Valley) SOLD OUT A harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and other kindred grapes
  • 2013 Chester's Anvil Zinfandel (Mead Ranch, Atlas Peak, Napa Valley)SOLD OUT
The regular retail price for these wines was $40/bottle or $480/case, so this BerserkerDay price of $180 represents a 63% discount. That's $15/bottle for what was originally $40!

Shipping is not included in this price, but to give you an idea of shipping cost, ground shipping will be $50 to the Midwest or the East Coast and $29 to the West Coast. We'll ship as the weather permits. We do NOT ship to the following states: AR, DE, KY, LA, MS, RI, UT

If you decide to allow 6/6 split of the zin and HH, i'd have no problem switching to that! Thanks Carole!!

Sorry but we can’t split the Chester’s Anvil cases. If you want 6 bottles of each, then I suggest you find someone else of like mind and then order a case of each and share them.

Such a killer bargain, I bought a case of each, thought about it a minute, and then ordered two more. 😁

Sad to see the label go away, but excited to stock up at a bargain price. Now, the question is ... Where do I store it all? 😱

Trying to order the Hattori but the site isn't responding. The link takes me here and then locks me in:



Our wines are made from grapes that we grow ourselves. Most of our effort is in the vineyard, where we devote considerable time to fine tuning the balance between the leaf canopy and the fruit. Not too much crop, not too little, just the right amount for the best flavors that our site can produce. Our winemaking practices are minimal. No extended maceration. We use only neutral French oak barrels in order to minimize oak flavor. We started out growing only Syrah, but we now also grow Mondeuse, Malbec and Zinfandel.

I originally posted this in Wine Talk, but as per Alan Rath's suggestion, it might get more eyeballs here. Can someone give me some personal insight into the Chester's Anvil HH Cab blend? I read the CellarTracker notes, and did a search on this board, but it would be great to get a bit more color on the style of this wine, other wines you would compare it to, any other thoughts, etc.......

Thanks in advance!

Paul

BTW, I already heard back from Carole, so thanks for thanks for that!

We have almost sold out of both Chester's wines so don't delay if you're still mulling this over.

As of 11:57 am, we have only 4 cases of Hattori Hanzo and 3 cases of the Zin left.

I tried to pretend that Berserkerday was not happening, but this (and two other offers) was too good to ignore. I got a HH yesterday during the sneak preview time. I have enjoyed every L-M wine I have ever had, so this seemed like -- wait for it -- a no-brainer (as has been mentioned by my fellow low-IQers upthread).

Thank you for the excellent deal.

Thanks for all your orders. We've got a lot of shipping to do!

We'll probably start shipping next week (week of 2/4) and we'll start with the southern states. We won't ship to the Midwest until you guys warm up a bit. I'll be in touch with each of you individually when we're getting ready to ship your order.

Chester’s Anvil arrived this weekend, and both the Zinfandel and the Hattori Hanzo are tasting very good. I now wish that I hadn’t split it with a friend.

Thanks again for the great BD10 package.

My HH case arrived several days ago. Travel shock be damned, I am drinking one now and am very impressed! Thank you so much, Carole, for this excellent Berserkerday treat. What a great value for such wonderful wine. I wish I had doubled down and ordered a case of the zin too.
