What You'll Get
Wine was once such an expensive commodity that the rich conspicuously spilled it on their golden capes instead of wasting it invisibly in their stomachs. Afford enough wine to braggadociously spill it on yourself with today's Groupon. For $30, you get three bottles of Contempo Inferno wine from Winebuys.com. Bring your Groupon to Winebuys.com's office in Ferndale to pick up your purchase.
The Contempo Inferno wine ($19.99 each), brought to fruity fruition by Burford Family Wines, is a red wine of rich and robust flavor. Feather-soft hints of dark chocolate, black raspberry, and smoked cedar tinge the wine's bouquet, while a succulent swig from the 750 ml. bottle reveals the taste of berry cobbler, cappuccino, chocolate-covered cherries, and fig cake with rich tannins. The finish reveals perennial campfire favorites toasted marshmallow and dried dark fruit. As with many heartier reds, Contempo Inferno is best paired with whatever red meat you've bow-hunted down in your own backyard.
William Schwab, the resident sommelier for Winebuys.com, rated Contempo Inferno 91 out of 100 points—a high rating that's no surprise considering vino-filled track record of winemaker Peter Burford. Burford has professional grape-draining experience at wineries in Australia and Asia, and currently sources fruit from six different countries in his California-based quest for the apex of aromatic alcohol. Get your Groupon and enjoy a hat trick of wondrous wine, courtesy of Winebuys.com.
