Welcome back to Syrah Nirvana! Save over $65 on the Amavi Cellars Syrah from the Walla Walla Valley until Friday 11/13 at noon.
Today's Insider Deal channels a little bit of the Northern Rhone in the Walla Walla Valley! We're delighted to bring back a favorite deal (with a Taste Rating of 10) from a favorite producer.
As we noted when we offered the Cabernet from Amavi Cellars, buying Cabs from the Walla Walla Valley typically puts quite a dent in your wallet. That is no less the case with Syrah.
In fact, the wine-searcher average for a single bottle of Walla Walla Syrah is currently $111!
Well, this week's deal, which we've dubbed the "Syrah Nirvana 3-Pack", gets you the already reasonably priced $38 Amavi Cellars Walla Walla Valley Estate Syrah for just $20 per bottle!
That's a savings of over $50 (47%) on the wine and over $65 in savings after factoring in our super low $5 shipping cost versus the normal rate.
At just 1,550 cases produced the 2017 vintage is only available at a handful of sellers besides the winery at an average price of $30 on wine-searcher. There are lots of high scores for this wine too with Wine & Spirits giving it 92 points.
This 3-Pack deal ships to: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, IL, 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 Friday 11/13 at noon (PST) unless it sells out sooner. Shipping is a flat $5 per order no matter how many 3-packs you buy.

The 2017 Amavi Cellars Syrah is 85% Syrah and 15% Grenache from estate vineyards all in the Walla Walla Valley of Oregon and Washington State. The exact vineyard split is 31% Seven Hills, 23% Les Collines, 21% Stone Valley, 14% Summit View and 11% Pepper Bridge.
The wine spends time in 100% French oak, 14% of which was new and the rest neutral.
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.
Produced & Bottled by Amavi Cellars
The 2017 Amavi Cellars Syrah begins with a very pleasing aroma of blackberry, plum, some violet notes, a little cedar and just a hint of smoked meat and earth.
Tasting reveals lots of blackberry fruit, a silky smooth mouthfeel plus firm tannins and lively acidity. There are also lovely touches of chocolate, vanilla, black tea, licorice and much more under the juicy fruit. This reminds me of a good Northern Rhone Syrah!
It ends dry, grippy and super long with tons of deep blackberry flavors and lots of the same accents from the palate. Delicious! This one needs an hour to two to really open up and then it's just fantastic. I love it.
