Big, juicy and delicious! SAVE over $20 a bottle on the Fifth Hill Pickberry Bordeaux Blend from La Prenda Wines.
We love it when winegrowers start producing their own wines. After all, who knows better where to get the best grapes?
Today we've got a lovely and normally quite expensive ($45) Bordeaux blend crafted by La Prenda Wines, a multi-generational farming family growing the grapes for some of the best wineries in Sonoma.
And knowing where to get the best grapes, it's no surprise that they turned to the famed Pickberry Vineyard on the north slope of Sonoma Mountain for all five varieties in this Bordeaux blend. (You may recognize the Pickberry name from bottlings by Ravenswood, Schug, Tin Barn and Laurel Glen among others.)
And what a gorgeous blend it is - 57% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot co-fermented and aged for a significant amount of time in oak. Just 313 cases were produced.
This wine won a Gold medal at the 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. We gave it a perfect 10 Taste Rating (94+ Points). And today, you don't have to spend anywhere near the normal $45 price tag to try it yourself.
Today's Insider Deal gets you 3 bottles of the Fifth Hill Pickberry Bordeaux Blend for $69.99, or $23.33 a bottle, plus just $5 for shipping. That's a total discount of 51%!
Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 3-packs you buy. Keep on reading for our full review.

From the winery:
The 2016 crop levels were small and deliciously concentrated due to the drought and small set in the spring. Juicy layers of ripe plum, blackberry, and clove, along with hints of smoky caramel, vanilla, and graphite characterize this wine. With delicate oak and velvety tannins, the juiciness of the entry evolves into a lush, silky textured finish.
The famous Pickberry Vineyard on the North slope of Sonoma Mountain was first planted in the 1980's and has produced stellar Bordeaux fruit for many producers. The site is just above the morning fog belt that sweeps in from the West and has just enough afternoon exposure to ripen the fruit without too much Western exposure to the hot afternoon sun. We began to farm it in 2012 and that same year began to purchase 5 tons of fruit every year to make a stellar Bordeaux blend. The wine is a constant Gold Medal, Double-Gold, Best of Class winner at the yearly Sonoma County Harvest Fair.
Founded in 2008 by Ned and Erika Hill, and named for the street Ned's father grew up on, La Prenda Vineyards Management is now a fixture of Sonoma agriculture. We farm for wineries such as Schug, Roche Family, Bartholomew Estate, Bennett Valley Cellars, Parmelee-Hill and our label Fifth Hill Wines. In 2013 we launched our wine collection to the world and have continued to develop our craft with the help of our award winning Winemaker Mike Cox.
313 Cases Produced
The 2016 Fifth Hill Pickberry Bordeaux Blend opens with a wonderful nose full of dark berry fruit and well integrated spice and licorice. Add in some notes of smoke, vanilla, chocolate and graphite and this is love!
Tasting the wine reveals more of the same which is a very good thing! Big, juicy and delicious with a smooth and lush mouthfeel, this one just keeps getting better and better the more air it has.
It ends dry, very long and very satisfying. It might have even been a bit better on day 2.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"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."
