Hagafen Sale - Kosherwine.com

by Josh Kramer » Thu Mar 07, 2013 3:52 pm

Couple of what seem like great deals. There are others but the mark down on these is significant for what I have heard are good quality wines.

2009 Syrah Napa Valley - $16.99
2010 Lodi Rousanne - $11.99
2009 Merlot Napa Valley - $17.99

Thoughts on these wines, and the sale in general?

Very good sale - less than at any store or the winery. Love the Syrah, the Merlot is not for me, and the Rousanne is nice - but a different kind of white.

Has anybody recently tasted their late harvest sauvignon blanc 2008? I loved it 2 years ago, wondering if it still has any life in it at this discounted price.

It is still fine - but does not have the weight of the late harvest Chard - of course, and therefore not something I jump up and down about

Agreed with Raccah - very good sale. The Syrah should be great now too. Personally, I love Hagafen Merlots - especially as they age a little. Not typical merlot in some respects, but great Napa merlot all the same. [Drank my last Hagafen '99 Merlot back in 2010 and it was just outstanding! The kind of wine that stops conversation dead in its tracks while everyone, even the non-wine geeks, comment appreciatively without any prompting.]

I bought a mixed case and received a letter saying Syrah was 2008, not 2009. They offered to refund if I didn't want it. I'm getting it anyway, only orxered a few bottles.

BS"D

Sale is beyond amazing... Yet to get an older vintage than stated without notice Prior to shipping is a little strange.
Let us know how they are drinking please.. Love be with your day!

I should clarify. I received notice that the advertised vintage was incorrect prior to shipping.
