Best Wine Clubs for Collectors List
There's a bit of a trend developing among wine collectors where aged wine has become a major theme. This Aged Cabernet wine club is unusual and ought to satisfy Cali Cab lovers everywhere.
We like that they bring you a variety of aged Cabernets, at different levels of quality from exceptional to rarified. While your monthly shipment price will vary, so will the different terroirs and winemaker expression of the king of all varietals.
While we get the sense that you'll always pay a fair price for the wines you're being sent, the price range offered and lack of clear proclamation of that fact makes just a teeny bit nervous.
While Cabernet Sauvignon wine clubs abound, there aren’t really any that focus on Aged Cabernet, other than this one of course. If you really enjoy Cabernet but haven’t had much experience with aged wines, this is an incredible way to discover how aging helps relax the tannins and depth of flavors more subtle and sophisticated than what you’re used to in the younger fruit-forward wines you normally drink.
All of that said, when you visit their reorder page you’ll see that many of these wines RETAIL around $50 but you’re being asked to pay anywhere from $75 to $120 per bottle. We’re guessing you get one ultra premium aged Cabernet and one high-quality aged Cabernet in each shipment (most of the time).

Although youthful Cabernet has its charm, with is big, bold fruit flavors and mighty tannins, the greatest winemaker of all crafts fine Cabernet: time. Years in the cellar transform a finely made, boisterous young Cabernet into a magical mix of rich texture, multi-layered flavor and complex nuances of oak and tannin. The fruit-forward aromas soften, a more complex nose develops and stringent tannins are tamed and replaced by a rounder mouthfeel.
