明眼人光看就知道這款不簡單! 葡萄全部都是從 Napa 數一數二的地段出來, 還用了 22個月的橡木桶? 這這這~~ 它到底是何方神聖? 讓我一一道來吧!

原來他們是 William Cole 的 Second label! William Cole 是 Will (老爸) & Cole (兒子) Ballentine, 從 1997 買下的酒莊。他們的開創的大膽風格使他們在短短 20年之內成為了Napa 的搶手貨之一, 在 Premier Napa Valley Auction 的叫價可以到 $250.00一瓶!

那為什麼要叫他們的 Second Label 為 “Smoking Gun” 呢? 因為這酒莊最原始的主人 “John Weinberger” 在 mid 1800s 要來到那帕途中很不幸的碰到搶劫, 勇敢的 John 不二話就拔槍射死了土匪, 為了紀念自己和家人因為這把槍而逃過了一劫, 於是就把酒莊瓶稱取叫 “Smoking Gun” 但是 1920-1933 美國的禁酒時期使的 John 的酒莊破產荒廢了好幾十年, 1997 年終於被 Ballentine family 買下成為現在的 William Cole

2013 年是 William Cole 第一次出 Second Label, 一向重值不重量的 Will & Cole 完全是因為 2013 的收成太棒, 才決定要出這個物美價廉的 “Smoking Gun” . 一出之後馬上受到好評, 2013 and 2014 都是秒殺 (所以請不要猶豫! 保證你錯過會後悔!) 這次我盯著酒莊等待 2015 的 release, 他們才放出消息我就立刻在這裡分享啦!! The 2015 lures you in with bright and rich ripe raspberries, cherries and milk chocolate and ribbons of caramel. The palate is full and rich with juicy fruit that coats your mouth. Subtle white pepper and toasty finish round out the wine into a long finish. 現在開瓶喝就很棒! 可是它有再放 10 年的實力! 2015 真的跟 2013 有得拚, 兩個難分上下, 值得收藏

This wine has the potential to be sold for $75 per bottle (CP 值高到下巴掉下來了!)
