The baby brother to the Gran Reserva is here and it's just as delicious - and costs even less! Get the Calyptra Vivendo Reserve Assemblage for just $11.33 a bottle through today's deal.
That's right, this is the baby brother to the Calyptra Assemblage Gran Reserva we previously offered and the best part? It gets the same Taste Rating at an even lower price!
This delicious blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 14% Syrah is aged a total of 24 months instead of 36 on the Gran Reserva, but we found it to be just as delicious.
And just like that wine, this one is made by one of Chile's top winemakers, Francois Massoc. If you're looking for a smooth, savory and delicious daily drinker, this is your deal.
Normally priced at $31, you won't pay anywhere near that through today's offer...
For the next day you can get 6 bottles of the 2017 Calyptra Vivendo Reserve Assemblage for just $67.99 ($11.33/bottle). That's a discount of 63%!
Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $6.99 shipping, no matter how many 6-packs you buy.

From the winery:
Made with our own grapes grown in a ravine in the Andean foothills of the Cachapoal Valley. The grapes are hand-harvested into 12-kg boxes. Following cluster selection, the grapes are destemmed and fall directly into the stainless steel tank without the use of pumps. A cold pre-fermentative maceration for 3 days is followed by the alcoholic fermentation at 22°c-24°c for 8-10 days, and a post-fermentative maceration for 10 days. The blend is defined and made and then the wine is tank-aged for 12 months prior to bottling. The wine is bottle-aged for at least 12 months before being released for sale.
Aromas of fresh fruit and a spicy touch of cinnamon and cloves. It is wine with soft tannins and juicy acidity that impart a fine texture and a long and fresh finish.
Estate Grown and Bottled
The 2017 Calyptra Vivendo Reserve Assemblage begins with a very pleasing aroma of dark berry fruit, violets and well-integrated spice, plus some savory balsamic notes. (And there are no green notes to be found thankfully.)
Taking a sip reveals a very smooth wine with similar flavors to the nose. Featuring juicy dark fruit and good balance, this is quite tasty. With several years of age under it's belt, it's drinking wonderfully right now and should continue to do so for the next year or two.
It ends dry, grippy, savory and quite long. It was just as good on day 2.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"You guys are awesome! I've been following your recommendations for over a year now. And I'm loving the Insider Deals. Some of the finest wines I've ever experienced. Fantastic value! "
"Hey Jon! You do great work. I've bought a bunch of the Insider Deals and probably 80% of the wine I drink comes from them. Great values! "
"Jon, this is a wonderful wine all around. You have become our go-to person for wonderful wines and wine values. Please keep up the excellent job that you're doing! Regards, a very satisfied customer. "
"I opened up our first bottle last weekend and was blown away. "
"Wow!! Just got my shipment. It is absolutely tremendous. "
"Hi Jon, Best thing I ever did is buy wine thru you...not been disappointed with any of them! Thank you SO MUCH!"
"Would you happen to be offering this one again anytime soon? I regret not buying more. This was exceptional!"
"I am seriously considering having the Insider Deals as my primary go-to. Why did I not do this sooner? Thank you"
"The only thing I have ever been disappointed in with an Insider Deal is that I didn't purchase more."
"I love this wine I bought from you!!!! Thanks for doing what do do!!!"
"This an absolutely amazing wine, Jon...You've outdone yourself!"
"Thanks Jon. We already drank all 6 of the first order so we were ecstatic to see you offering it again. My wife and I both love it."
"You are a man after my own heart. I have always looked for the best and least expensive wine and you just made it easier. Cheers!"
"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
"The shipping on the Insider Deals is another great part of the deal. We recently paid $27 to a winery in California to ship 6 bottles (same packaging as the insider deals)....yikes!"
"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
"I really missed the boat by only getting four bottles of this offer last month. Should have bought least at a case."
"My wife and I have really enjoyed getting to know new wines (and better than we used to buy!) Thanks for what you do and providing this service!"
"Jon - you have to stop offering all of these amazing deals. My self discipline is fading fast!!"
"I recently took advantage of your offer. So glad I did, and now sorry I did not buy more (like all those quotes on your website!)"
"The wine is outstanding. I am so glad I bought a case."
" I only drink Reverse Wine Snob wine, it actually doesn't make sense to buy from a store. You don't get anything interesting, unique, and full of value otherwise."
"Jon, I should have bought more! Delicious!!"
"I am a Certified Specialist of Wine. I love your deals. You pick great wines!! Kudos to you for getting us great deals!"
"Wish I would have ordered more!! It was great. Looking back, I wish I didn’t open it at our annual pool party. It’s gone. **Sob**"
"thanks for the deal...this wine is spectacular for $12.50/bottle. I am used to buying big, bold, young cabs or old vine zins and paying considerably more multiples of this price."
"Hi Jon, just had to let you know that I love this wine!!!! Thanks for doing what you do."
"I have purchased many times over the last several months and loved the wines!"
"Seriously amazing deal!!! I love a bold red, and Reverse Wine Snob delivered!!! Perfect for a rainy night!!"
"AMAZING!! Damn, I should have bought a CASE!!"
"WOW. Just... wow. Absolutely delicious. If I knew it was going to be this good, I would have bought a case... or two. This was dead-center in the sweet spot of what I like. Thank you!!"
"I have loved all my RWS deals, can't wait to get this one."
"I know that you don't need to have 'customers' email you every time they like a wine that you have suggested/rated, and I have enjoyed many of your recommendations. But this Tannat was spectacular! Wow! That was amazing!"
"Thanks for a great service! We’ve been loving your emails and wine deals!"
"This insider deal is a great wine!!! So glad I got it!!"
"I love the wines that you offer. I have sent your information to many people. I also split orders with friends. There are so many sites that inflate the retail so it looks like the deal is better than it is. I find that annoying and I distrust those sites. As a Certified Specialist of Wine and a retired wine distributor, I definitely appreciate your picks and your pricing. "
"Wish I had doubled my order!"
"I've gotten quite a few of these and loved them all -- keep them coming!"
"Wow - this wine is amazing!!! Glad I have two more bottles of it!!"
"Bought a case wish I had purchased 2-3 cases. Fantastic buy for the price."
"This Insider Deal was the best ever. This wine is amazing!!! Strongly recommend."
"received my shipment yesterday and am having a brunch with friends now. It is a hit with everyone. We LOVE it. I wish I had ordered 2 more of them. Thank you soo much."
