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 with today's Groupon: for $90, you get six bottles of wine at Yorkshire Wines & Spirits (a $179.94 value).
Yorkshire Wines & Spirits is a full-service shop stocked with a vast selection of fine wines. With today's deal, wine-drinkers get a six-bottle package, with whites and reds that have been carefully selected by Yorkshire Wines' talented crew to create a harmonious multihued tableau. The crimson Colonial Estate Émigré 2004 (a $79.99 value), rated 94 points by The Wine Advocate, and a 90-point bottle of Bastianich vespa rosso 2006 (a $29.99 value), flaunt complex flavor profiles. Meanwhile the Montes Alpha syrah 2007 (an $18.99 value) is laced with hints of juicy black cherry and smoky spiciness, and can be enjoyed now or saved in the cellar until 2028, when it's old enough to drink itself.
Pleasingly pear-colored La Boatina pinot grigio 2006 (a $19.99 value) and Poet’s Leap riesling 2008 (a $21.99 value) dazzle palates with refreshing lightness, and the clean Marques de Caceres rioja blanco 2009 (an $8.99 value) delivers grapefruit and floral notes to awaiting taste buds. Whether used to practice swilling techniques or to take the edge off before revealing to your parents that you're a superhero and you'd like to move out, these six bottles of wine can be enjoyed by oenophiles and novices alike.
