Details

Mature, but still has a fleshy edge to the lightly mulled plum and dark cherry notes, while mint, cinnamon, singed cedar and warm tobacco leaf hints emerge steadily through the fine-grained finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2018. 1,500 cases made. -James Molesworth, Sep 2016

Constantia Glen's 2011 Five is blend of 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec. It is matured in 100% new French oak for 18 months (the level of new wood has decreased since then to around 70%). It has a clean, focused, mint-tinged bouquet with compact black cherry and boysenberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and slightly chewy black fruit that feels a little saline in the mouth, but perhaps just missing the detail on the finish that the 2013 Three demonstrates. -Neal Martin, Nov 2015

Futures Policy

You pay for wines on a Futures order, plus any local alcohol taxes, at the time of order confirmation. You are responsible, at the time of pick-up, for any charges billed to Binny’s Beverage Depot which are above the prepaid price of the wine and may include tariffs, duties, sales taxes and/or shipping and insurance costs.

The minimum order for Wine Futures is 6 bottles per item. You will be notified by e-mail that we received your order request. By the next regular business day, you will receive an e-mail confirming available quantities on your order request.

We reserve the right to limit quantities of wines ordered on a Futures request.

When your wine arrives, we will contact you to make arrangements for pick-up or shipping. In the event we are unable to contact you within 90 days of receiving your wine, we reserve the right to dispose of the wine and refund the original price you paid, less a 20% service fee.

Due to the rarity of these wines, we request shipped orders be insured. Shipments include insurance up to $100. Current insurance rates, after the first $100, are 80 cents per $100 of value. Required tariffs, duties, sales taxes and shipping and insurance charges are assessed at the applicable rate when the wine is shipped to you. Wines are shipped in damage resistant containers made for shipping wine bottles. If you would like to have the original wooden crates, they can be shipped separately via UPS ground for an additional shipping charge.

 

Futures order cancellation policy

There is no fee if a paid order is cancelled within 30 days. For a wine Futures order cancelled more than 30 days after payment has been made, a 20% service fee will be deducted from your refund.
