Big and tasty Merlot over 50% off, it's a new vintage of the Donati Family Vineyard The Immigrant.
You may remember Donati Family Vineyards from our popular Claret deal as well as the previous vintage of this very wine, from their premium lineup. Of course, thanks to today's one day deal you won't pay a premium in price.
This is unashamedly 100% Merlot and it's glorious!
It hails from the Paicines AVA in the southern part of San Benito County on the other side of the Galban Mountain Range from Monterey. Warm days and cool nights make it a prime spot for this variety and this is an excellent example.
This wine is aged in a combination of 20% new hybrid oak and 80% neutral oak for an incredible 31 months and has basically no residual sugar (less than 1 g/L). Just 610 cases were produced.
The 2016 Donati The Immigrant normally sells for $36 from the winery.
Today's Insider Deal gets you 3 bottles of this damn good Merlot for just $54.99 plus only $5 shipping.
That's a savings of over $17 a bottle (49%) even before factoring in our super low $5 shipping! All told you're saving $63 (51%) with our 1 day deal.
This 3-Pack deal ships to: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, ID, IL, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, NH, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, TX, VA, WA, and WI. (These states are dependent on the individual licenses of the offering winery. Future deals may have more or less states available.)

Albino Donati immigrated to the United States from Italy in 1907. Just like many others who came to America, he arrived with a commitment to create a better life for his family. His hard work, determination, and perserverance have created footsteps for our family to follow for generations. The creation of "The Immigrant" is in honor of his legacy.
This wine is the newest addition to the premium tier of the Donati Portfolio. Dark, dense fruit, layered with hints of oak and spice. Complex with a long finish.
Produced & Bottled by Donati Family Vineyard
The 2016 Donati Family Vineyard The Immigrant begins with a really wonderful aroma of black cherry, plum, pepper, baking spice and more.
Taking a sip reveals a big and tasty Merlot! Dry, chewy and quite good, it features lots of baking spice on the palate plus licorice, cola and more along with delicious dark fruit.
It ends dry, quite long and savory with lots of really lovely lingering spice notes. And it gets even better as it has some more air. This is some damn good Merlot!
