A big challenge for wine lovers is to find excellent wine to enjoy at a great price. This is the “Holy Grail” for wine enthusiasts. One of the producers that fits that bill for me is “The Paring.” This is a label out of the Central Coast of California close to Santa Barbara. I found this wine when visiting Jonata in that same area. The Paring is Jonata’s second label and really worth every penny. How many pennies you ask? The Paring wines sell for $25 a bottle. Given what is in the bottle, this is remarkable!
They produce a red blend, a Syrah, a Pinot Noir, a Sauvignon Blanc, and a Rosé. They all sell for just $25 a bottle. Given the price point, one might be skeptical yet here are the reviews:
“Made by the team at Jonata, these wines are basically declassified lots that didn’t make the cut for the top Jonata releases. These 2012s are a step up from past vintages and are crazy values. Don’t miss a chance to grab some of these!” –Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
“These are the first wines I have tasted from The Paring, the second label of Jonata and The Hilt. The four wines in this range are all absolutely delicious. Best of all, the wines are all priced at $25 a bottle, which makes them among the very finest values readers will find in California. A great choice for by the case purchases or glass pours, these new releases from The Paring deliver serious bang for the buck. It simply does not get better than this.” –Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Both Jeb and Antonio were particularly enthusiastic for The Paring Red, a wine focused on The Paring’s cabernet lots. The 2012 “The Paring Red” scored 92 points from Antonio Galloni and 91 points from Jeb Dunnuck.
I have drunk The Paring’s wines for several years. I send it to my in-laws in Illinois to share the love (and have great wine to drink when we visit). The Paring is currently offering $1.00 shipping on a case of wine.
Step up and grab some for your holiday events or anytime. They will not disappoint. Cooler weather is here, and the shipping price can’t be beat. To learn more or to place an order, go to the website, The Paring Wines, or send an email to email@example.com.
