It's back but it ends Thursday 7/21 at noon. SAVE $15 A BOTTLE on this truly exceptional 94-Point Pinot Noir from Dundee Hills, the Ernst Loosen J. Christopher Volcanique Pinot Noir.
Have we got a special, not to be missed, deal today! We're unbelievably excited to be able to bring you this wine at all and even more so given our giant $15 a bottle discount.
The J. Christopher Volcanique is real deal Pinot Noir from the La Colina Vineyard in Dundee Hills in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. We give it a perfect 10 (94+ points) Taste Rating, but don't just take our word for it. The 2017 we are offering here has a long, long list of high scores including:
- 94 Points from Wine & Spirits
- 93 Points from James Suckling
- 92 Points from Vinous
- 91 Points from Wine Spectator
- 91 Points from Wine Enthusiast
And as good as these scores are, they were based on tastings done a couple years ago. I'm guessing they would be even higher if done today. And if the stellar feedback we received the first time we ran this offer in January is any indication, you all agree!
J. Christopher Wines is owned by Ernst Loosen of the famed Dr. Loosen estate in Germany. Just 900 cases of this blend of Pommard and Wadenswil clones were produced. The wine gets its name from the red volcanic clay the vines are grown in that produce these exceptional grapes.
In addition, the winemaking here is top notch with native yeast fermentation and no fining or filtration. 18 months in barriques, 25% of which were new, and some nice bottle age since then have added the perfect touch.
All of this to say, buy it folks, buy it all! This is not to be missed.
The 2017 J. Christopher Volcanique Pinot Noir has a surprisingly reasonable SRP (by Dundee Hills standards) of $40. For the next two days; however, you'll pay much less than that…

From the winery:
A special-selection Pinot Noir that beautifully balances the depth and elegance of the Dundee Hills appellation. The Volcanique cuvée is a selection of outstanding barrels from vineyards we work with in the Dundee Hills. The wine showcases the savory quality, the fruit purity, and the fine-grained texture that characterizes the deep, red volcanic clay of these hills. The 2017, a blend of Pommard and Wädenswil clones from La Colina vineyard, is a perfect example, with its elegant red fruit aromas, delicate structure and seamless length.
Produced & Bottled by Loosen-Christopher Wines
The 2017 J. Christopher Volcanique Pinot Noir opens with a fresh, very inviting aroma of black cherry, baking spice, touches of black pepper, earth and more.
The wine tastes ultra-smooth and is filled with juicy, concentrated fruit flavors that go deep. It also features continued touches of baking spice, black pepper and black tea. Wonderfully balanced, this has plenty of complexity but is still extremely easy to drink.
Fine tannins lead into the dry, exceedingly long and a bit grippy finish that leaves you with some lingering mineral notes and more juicy fruit. This is truly exceptional! It was just as good on day two. Buy it all!!

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"Hi Jon, Best thing I ever did is buy wine thru you...not been disappointed with any of them! Thank you SO MUCH!"
"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 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!"
"Seriously amazing deal!!! I love a bold red, and Reverse Wine Snob delivered!!! Perfect for a rainy night!!"

"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!"
"This insider deal is a great wine!!! So glad I got it!!"
