High scoring Cabernet from Chile for just $12 a bottle. Get the 2018 and 2019 Casas del Toqui Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon while you can.
Casas del Toqui is back with a pair of high scoring wines that help to show the difference a vintage can make.
You may remember this winery from our recent Gran Toqui Syrah deal that many of you have mentioned you enjoyed. This time we turn to Cabernet.
Both vintages of Casas del Toqui Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon have big scores. The 2018 was awarded a "Top 100 Best Buy" designation from Wine & Spirits magazine (who also scored it at 91 points). James Suckling gave it 92 points and Wine Enthusiast came in at 90. The 2019 received 91 points from James Suckling.
The wines come from the Cachapoal Valley in the northern half of the Rapel Valley, between Maipo and Colchagua, which is a great spot for Cabernet Sauvignon (and Carmenere).
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, both wines were aged in oak barrels for 8 months and have had quite a bit of additional time in the bottle at this point. And both wines are drinking wonderfully. They are also very low in sugar coming in at around 3 grams per liter.
The SRP on these is an already reasonable $20, but of course you won't pay anywhere near that through today's Insider Deal…
For the next day you can get 3 bottles of the 2018 Casas del Toqui Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon and 3 bottles of the 2019 Casas del Toqui Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon (for a total of 6 bottles) for just $71.99, or $12 a bottle. That's a discount of 40%!

From the winery:
Very complex nose with hints of tobacco, spices and black fruits, and a soft hint of vanilla. Balanced with firm but silky tannins, good body and with a long and very persistent finish.
Serve between 16-18C with grilled meats and cheeses.
Up first let's take a look at the 2018 vintage.
The 2018 Casas del Toqui Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon opens with an inviting, harmonious aroma of plum, berry, touches of mint, chocolate and spice.
Tasting the medium-bodied wine reveals it to be smooth with similar fruit to the nose but a bit more fleshy and juicy in the mouth. It also features some light touches of spice. It's not overly complex but it is quite easy to drink.
It ends dry, long and a bit grippy with a touch of tobacco under the lasting fruit. This is a simple, but very pleasing Cab!

Next, we've got the 2019 vintage.
The 2019 Casas del Toqui Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon also opens with quite an inviting aroma but it leans more toward the fruit and herbal end of the spectrum. It’s a great example of how the same wine from the same place can be expressed from one vintage to the next.
In the mouth the wine tastes similar to the 2018 but again is a touch more herbal and also features some fine, grainy tannins that seem to have already resolved on the 2018 (and I expect will do the same here).
The finish is again similar (dry and long) and perhaps even a touch more grippy. This one is also highly recommended!

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"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. And $5 shipping for four bottles? 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 $5 or $10 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!"
"I finally opened a bottle of this and it did not disappoint. Delicious!!!"
"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!!"
"My Insider Deal arrived just in time for my celebration tonight and it’s absolutely delicious! Cheers!"
"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."
