An unheard of price (almost 50% off) on an elegant and delicious Walla Walla Valley Cab, the Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon. Sale ends Tuesday 3/17 at noon unless it sells out sooner.
Fresh off last week’s massive discount on a classic California Syrah, we now turn to one of our very favorite spots for Cabernet, Washington State. 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.
This deal is now SOLD OUT! Want to get notified about our next one? Subscribe to our emails!
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 price over $100! (And the one that isn’t over $100 is a mere $62.)
Don’t even try finding Walla Walla Cabs for $20 or less – searching on the cheapest average 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 $33 Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon for just $20 per bottle!
That’s a savings of over $50 (45%) after factoring in our super low $5 shipping cost. Up until now, about the best price you could find for this wine was at Total Wine where a few select locations sell it for $27 a bottle.
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.

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 really quite an elegant and delicious wine!
