Wine Guy Alert!!! from Rocky Menge

I have a good client who, when on a trip to New Zealand, fell in love with the pinot noir wines from the Martinborough region. In particular, the Escarpment wines produced by the "Godfather" of New Zealand Pinot's Larry McKenna. His flagship wine is called Kupe and that is what my client has been searching for and cannot find it. 

Well, I have. This wine has ratings that are off the charts the 2014 vintage has multiple 90+ ratings as does the 2015 including a 96 by Wine Spectator. 

This wine is not available in South Carolina. The 2014 vintage sells for $60.00 per bottle (six-pack cases) and the 2015 vintage sells for $67.50 per bottle (six-pack cases). 

I am ordering some for my client and some for myself. If any of you are interested please call me or email me by Monday afternoon. No single bottles, six-pack cases only

Everyone needs a couple of bottles of a special wine to have for a special occasion.....this is one of those wines.
