With a perfect 10 Taste Rating (94+ Points), a pedigree of high scores and a spot on our list of the Top 10 Red Wines of 2021 (not to mention a discount of $10 a bottle), it's a new vintage of this estate grown beauty from the Sierra Foothills. Get ready for the return of the extremely popular Andis Wines Barbera d'Amador Insider Deal!
We're closing this year out with a bang, bringing back a few of our most popular offers. Delightfully we're able to include this extremely popular wine, both because it's so delicious but also because only 471 cases of the 2020 were produced.
Many of you are familiar with this wine from our "Perfect 10" Pack, but if not here's what we heard from one buyer after the last deal:
Hi Mr. Thorsen! I really missed the boat by only getting four bottles of this offer last month. Should have bought least at a case.
This is 100% Barbera from the Andis Estate vineyard in the Sierra Foothills AVA. The wine is fermented in steel tanks and spends 18 months in French oak barrels, 15% of which were new.
This wine also has almost no residual sugar (1.7 g/L) but don't let that fool you into thinking it is light on sweet fruit flavors! Read on for more on that.
The Andis Barbera also has a long line of 90-94 point scores over the years, including 91-points on the 2020 from Wine Enthusiast. We've been offering this wine for several years and feel that this is one of the best vintages yet. We easily gave it a perfect 10 Taste Rating.
The name of the wine (Barbera d'Amador) is an ode to the excellent Barbera grown in Amador County much like the Italian areas of Alba and Asti. In fact, the first Amador vineyards were established in 1849 during the Gold Rush and Italian varietals like Zinfandel, Sangiovese and especially Barbera have been at the forefront ever since.
And there really is something truly special about the Barbera grown here, in fact it's one of my favorite spots in the world for this variety. If you had a chance to get in on any of our Scott Harvey Barbera offers, then you know why. Today's wine is just as good.
The 2020 vintage is only available from the winery at the quite reasonable SRP of $30.
Today's INSIDER DEAL; however, gets you 4 bottles of the 2020 Andis Wines Barbera d'Amador for just $79.99, or $20 a bottle, saving you $10 a bottle!
That's a discount of almost 40% after factoring in the additional savings from our $6.99 shipping! Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $6.99 in shipping, no matter how many 4-packs you buy. Read on for our full review.

From the winery:
2020 Estate Grown
A true expression of the grape, medium-bodied, and gentle tannin with deep dark color. Aromas of blackberry with notes of vanilla from oak aging.
Barbera is originally from the Italian region of Piedmont. It was introduced to the Sierra Foothills at the end of the 1800s and still thrives here today. The variety's natural acidity and deep color make it a wonderful stand-alone wine.
Andis Barbera is 100% grown in our Estate on decomposed granite soils at 1500 feet elevation, facing North. This red wine is a true expression of a robust, full-bodied, and firmly tannic wine with deep dark color, giving it a rustic appeal. The name Barbera d'Amador is an homage to the other two famous regions of the world, Alba and Asti.
Production Notes: 471 cases
Food Pairing Notes: Pizza Margherita, Pasta al Pomodor
Produced & Bottled by Andis Wines
BOOM! It only takes one sniff to know you're in for something special here...
The 2020 Andis Wines Barbera d'Amador begins with beautiful blackberry and bright cherry fruit intermingled with spice, black pepper and vanilla. It's a lovely, succulent aroma that sucks you right into the glass. And amazingly, it gets even better as this relatively young wine has more time to breathe.
The wine tastes deliciously delicious! Loaded with super rich and juicy tart fruit flavors, great acidity and a smooth and silky texture, this is just a beauty. It has almost no residual sugar at all but it's extremely flavorful with Sweet Tart candy like flavors. Overall similar in flavor to both the 2018 and 2019 we previously offered, the 2020 continues the trend and perhaps even manages to elevate the experience.
It ends dry, very long and lingering and a bit tannic and grippy. Pair it with pizza or anything else in tomato sauce and you'll be in heaven. It was even slightly better on day 2.
As we noted above, we absolutely love Barbera from this area, and this is a great example not to be missed.
