Premier Perfection!

Steve Heimoff, esteemed wine critic, just gave The Premier Cabernet Sauvignon a perfect 100-point score, writing:

The result is, in a word, stunning. I would stand it next to any Cabernet Sauvignon in the world; it’s that good. I could give this wine 98, 99 points and hedge my bets, but why bother? It’s perfect. Score: 100 points.

One of the many wonderful things about wine is that it is always changing. Like every other living thing, it has a life-cycle. The best wines, those meant for long-term aging, start out as rebellious teens, have a long and glorious adulthood, then slowly descend dirtward.

For this critic, at this moment, this wine…The Premier Cabernet is perfect. You can click here to purchase and make up your own mind!
