Save 43% on the Perfect 10 Denier-Handal Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Only 154 cases produced!
Who doesn’t love a good Zin deal? Well today, we've got a pretty special one that comes from one of the same winemakers (Lucas Meeker) as one of our previous perfect 10, highly popular deals, the Meeker ZSM.
This extremely small production wine (only 154 cases produced) is made by Denier-Handal Wines. This 100% Zinfandel spends 20 months in 2-year-old French oak barrels and has almost no residual sugar (less than 1 g/L). It also makes a great pick for your Thanksgiving table.
Here's some more info on the winery and their stellar pedigree:
An award-winning, family-run winery in the heart of Dry Creek Valley. Our fascination with wine-grape growing began in South America, where we lived in Ecuador for 38 years, and continues today with our grape growing and wine-making ventures in Sonoma County.
Our winemaking is a relatively recent venture. For over twenty years we were primarily grape growers selling our premium grapes to some of the best wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties with whom we have long-standing relationships. One of our client-wineries was Wellington Vineyards in Glen Ellen owned by the Wellington family of Sonoma. Peter Wellington, owner-winemaker, produced several award-winning, vineyard-specific Cabernet Sauvignons, including one from our Dry Creek Vineyard. Peter Wellington helped us develop and make our wines. We grew and produced boutique lots of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Sagrantino, a Red Blend, and Cabernet Sauvignon at the Wellington facility in Glen Ellen. We now produce our wines at the Meeker custom crush facility in Healdsburg and continue to receive consulting support from Peter Wellington as well as David Noyes who also worked with Wellington.
We continue to source excellent Zinfandel and Syrah grapes from small family-owned vineyards that follow our high standards in growing grapes using organic practices and supporting sustainability. These farming relationships ensure that our grapes will continue to produce award winning wines.
Of course, this type of expertise normally comes with a hefty price tag. Typically retailing for $33, you won't pay anywhere near that price through today's Insider Deal...

From the winery:
Tasting Notes: Deep dark red velvety color! Rich ripe fruit, (blackberry and raspberry), invites a taste. The nose evolves to strawberry jam and cinnamon spice. In the mouth blackberries and dark plum, and creamy cassis persist, strongly complimented by flavors of toasted brown sugar and cinnamon. Delicious! These progress to a lingering finish of dark fruit flavors, caramel, and burnt sugar, which plays against the wine’s well-balanced acid and tannic structure.
Harvest notes: We hand harvest our Dry Creek Valley fruit at night during September. The sugar and acid levels were in balance at nearly perfect levels at harvest due to the warmth of summer. The fruit arrived at the crush pad shortly after harvest while the grapes were still cool.
Food Pairing: It perfectly accompanies light salami hors d’oeuvres, soup, white meat and vegetable pies.
Produced and Bottled by Handal-Denier Vineyards, LLC
Closed with cork
The 2019 Denier-Handal Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel opens with a very enticing aroma of ripe, brambly blackberry with loads of lovely, assorted baking spice notes plus touches of licorice and vanilla. Pleasing right from the first pop and pour, it is especially good after it has a bit of time to breathe.
Taking a sip reveals a lovely, balanced, flavorful, darn near perfect example of Zinfandel. Juicy, savory and delicious, the wine features good structure, a smooth mouthfeel and great depth with all those notes from the nose translating over quite beautifully and harmoniously in the mouth.
It ends dry and quite long. It gets even better the longer it is open, holding up wonderfully on day two. This has got some good aging potential too, if you can resist drinking all 4 bottles now!

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...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."

"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**"

"I have purchased many times over the last several months and loved the wines!"

"I have loved all my RWS deals, can't wait to get this one."

"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!"
