Unheard of savings (almost 50%) on an elegant and delicious Walla Walla Valley Cab, the Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon. A limited time (and limited quantity) chance to try one of our Top 10 Red Wines of the Year!
Yes, that's right, this is the wine we recently named #6 on our list of the Top 10 Red Wines of 2020! Extremely popular the last time we offered it, we decided to bring it back. However, you'll have to act fast to get it as quantities are quite limited.
We love wines from Washington State, especially Cabernet. Our latest Insider Deal; however, isn’t just from Washington but from the very special Walla Walla Valley in the southeastern part of the state.
In fact, the Walla Walla Valley AVA crosses into Oregon as well, with about 1/3 of the overall area in Oregon and 2/3 in Washington. Today's wine uses fruit from vineyards in both states.
And if you're not familiar with Walla Walla Cabernet you're in for a treat, especially at our discounted price. Checking wine-searcher for the most popular wines in this region shows that 9 of the top 10 have an average retail price well over $100!
Don't even try finding Walla Walla Cabs for $20 or less – searching on the cheapest average retail price within wine-searcher only turns up 3 wines under $20!
Well, this week's deal, which we've dubbed the "Walla Walla Wonder 3-Pack", gets you the Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon for just $20 per bottle!
That's a discount of over $50 (45%) after factoring in the savings from our super low $5 shipping cost.
And don't just take our word for how good this one is, the vintage we are offering here (2016) has a number of scores between 90 and 92 points.
This deal is available to ship to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI and WY. (These states are dependent on the individual licenses of the offering winery. Future deals may have more or less states available.)
This is a limited time, winery direct offer facilitated by our friends at Wine Country Connect. Sale ends Tuesday 12/15 at noon (PST) unless it sells out sooner. Shipping is a flat $5 per order no matter how many 3-packs you buy.

From the bottle:
100% Estate – 100% Sustainable – 100% Walla Walla Valley
The name Amavi (ah-mah-vee) was coined by combining the Latin words "amor + vita + vinum" (love, life and wine). Amavi is family owned, and we grow our own grapes. Our vineyards straddle the Washington/Oregon border in the high desert climate of the Walla Walla Valley AVA.
The 2016 Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a lovely aroma of black cherry, plum, pleasing spice notes, some really lovely floral notes and nice touches of cedar, licorice, mint and more. The medium to full-bodied wine tastes smooth, round, lush and fresh. All those flavors from the nose combine seamlessly in the mouth. There is definitely some good aging potential on this one too.
It ends dry and slightly tannic on the savory finish of lingering chocolate. This is quite an elegant and delicious wine!
