It's back! Unheard of savings (almost 50% off) on an elegant and delicious perfect 10 Walla Walla Valley Cab, the Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.
Today we're delighted to bring you the new vintage (2017) of this extremely popular deal. In fact, the last time we offered this wine it sold out in less than a day. No surprise given the 2016 was #6 on our list of the Top 10 Red Wines of 2020. It turns out the 2017 is just as delicious.
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 13 of the top 15 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 2 wines under $20!
Well, today's deal, which we've dubbed the "Walla Walla Wonder 3-Pack", gets you the Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon for just $20 per bottle!
Through today's Insider Deal you can get 3 bottles of the 2017 Amavi Cellars Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon for just $59.99 plus $5 for shipping.
That's a discount of over $50 (45%) after factoring in the additional savings from our super low $5 shipping cost versus the normal price.
And don't just take our word for how good this one is, just like previous vintages the 2017 has multiple 90+ point ratings including from the likes of Wine Spectator and James Suckling.
This 3-pack 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.)

The 2017 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, black olive and more.
The medium to full-bodied wine tastes smooth, round, lush, fresh and excellent once again! 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 and chewy on the very long and savory finish of lingering chocolate. This is quite an elegant and delicious wine!
