The Shy Society

The Shy Society ensures that you can purchase exactly the wines you want and have access to our rarest bottlings. This is a fully customizable membership allowing you to determine how many bottles of each wine you want to purchase - from our Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to those wines only available to Shy Society members including Social Currency and our Single Vineyard bottlings. We will process one transaction and ship all the wines in one shipment in the spring of each year. The Shy Society is truly a simplified process – allowing you to hand select your favorite Dakota Shy wines for your cellar.

We’re proud to be leaders in our industry. We trust you’ll see many wineries in the future adapt to this approach, dropping their old programs of multiple shipments, multiple credit card transactions – and hopefully dropping the requirement that you buy 12 bottles of one wine in order to get 3 bottles of a more exclusive bottling. Simply put, it’s you who should decide which wines you receive, when you receive them and how many of them you want.

We want your support not just today and tomorrow - but years from now. We want your help in creating the Dakota Shy legacy and tradition. We do ask for a one year minimum commitment to join the Shy Society (i.e., two shipments) – and we anticipate that our distinctive wines will inspire you to remain on the Shy Society for years ahead.

The Shy Society:

  • Only the wines you want.
  • The number of bottles you want.
  • Access to our very limited Single Vineyard wines and special bottlings (Moulds, Melanson, Atlas, Oakville Ranch and Social Currency).
  • Exclusive access to our concierge services
  • One annual transaction
  • One annual shipment
  • The spirit and legacy of Dakota Shy

Wines will be charged for in February and shipped in April of each year.  There is no fee to join and we require thirty days notice to make adjustments to your allocation.

3 bottles of our 2018 Dakota Shy ‘Napa Valley’ Cabernet Sauvignon
Our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon from a select few hillside vineyards

2018 Napa Valley Cabernet

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is an outrageously beautiful wine, especially at this level...striking aromatic intensity. Lavender, spice, plum and menthol add layers of nuance to this compelling, super-refined Cabernet Sauvignon from Dakota Shy." -Antonio Galloni

Very classic and compelling Cabernet. The aromas show purposeful and elegant restraint – cedar, tobacco leaf, lavender, currant and dark cherry and earth. In the mouth, this shows a classic, powerful Napa Valley Cabernet with broad fine-grained tannins providing a seamless and finely-filigreed structure and precise balancing acidity. Finishes beautifully with flavors of dried herb, black currant, cedar and cocoa powder that linger. This is a wine that charms with its combination of class, elegance and sumptuousness.

3 bottles of our 2018 Dakota Shy ‘Atlas’ Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Single vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the eastern foothills of Calistoga

2018 Atlas Vineyard Cabernet, $175

"...the 2018 packs a serious punch in every direction. Crushed rocks, lavender, crème de cassis and sweet spice build into the finely cut, chiseled finish. This is such a promising wine." Antonio Galloni

Totally compelling with gorgeous aromas of thyme, dried herb, spice, black berry, cocoa, anise, cut golden straw, spice cake and fig paste. Backward, dark and brooding in the mouth with a thrilling combination of power, texture and energy. The flavors echo the aromas with an incredibly complex array of dark fruit, herb and chocolate notes. Texturally this is seamless and beautifully integrated with an awesome balance of power and freshness. Extraordinary.

4 bottles of our 2018 Dakota Shy ’TEN’ Cabernet Sauvignon
A valley floor expression of two Cabernet vineyards in St Helena and Rutherford

2018 Napa Valley Cabernet

Very expressive of our valley floor Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, this wine has beautiful aromatics of dried herbs, rose petals, black currant, cherries and anise. Super silky and smooth on the palate, the lush textured core reveals layers of currant, cherry and licorice notes. This all flows seamlessly into a long, bright and energetic finish where the flavors echo. Probably the most approachable 2018 at this point but has a long life ahead. Delicious.
