Get the 93-point J Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay for just $XX a bottle!
Bulk Buy alert!
One for the Chardonnay lovers today, we've got an excellent, high-scoring wine from the Santa Maria Valley, a spot known for producing delicious examples of the variety.
100% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and it was aged in 30% new French oak, but this is nowhere near a butter bomb.
Smooth and rich with vibrant, juicy fruit and mineral notes throughout, this is an extremely pleasing Chardonnay which is backed up by a number of high scores including 93-points from Tasting Panel, 90-points from Jeb Dunnuck and 92-points from Wine & Spirits. We put it right in that same range at 91-93 points.
Normally retailing for a reasonable $25 a bottle, we're slashing that price for the next day...

From the winery:
With delicious fruit intensity, our 2019 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay opens with beautiful aromas of toasted oak, lemon cream pie, graham cracker and a hint of lime blossom. The palate fills first with bright flavors of fruit, oak, pie crust and toffee, followed by a distinct mineral character and layers of stone and apple fruit on the mid-palate. This wine is an amazing pairing for truffle butter risotto, roasted chicken dishes, buttery lobster or avocado and mushroom tempura.
The second oldest appellation in the United States (second only to Napa Valley), Santa Maria Valley is considered to be the heart and soul of Santa Barbara Wine Country. As one of the coolest climate wine production areas in California, it is renowned for its extraordinary Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, two varietals that thrive in its unique coastal terroir.
Vinted & Bottled by J Wilkes Wines
The 2019 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay opens with lots of lemon and lime, some vanilla cream, and toasty oak notes. There's also a bit of crème brulee but we're not really getting much butter on the nose.
The wine tastes smooth and vibrant in the mouth with all those same flavors from the nose combining quite harmoniously. Full of character, it features rich, juicy fruit with plenty of depth and along with some nice mineral notes. This has got all the good parts of malolactic fermentation with just a hint of butter, which we really appreciate.
It ends crisp, dry and quite long with some lasting chalkiness under the tart, juicy fruit. This is a really pleasing example of Chardonnay. Get it at our highly discounted price while you can!

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"Hey Jon! You do great work. I've bought a bunch of the Insider Deals and probably 80% of the wine I drink comes from them. Great values! "
"Jon, this is a wonderful wine all around. You have become our go-to person for wonderful wines and wine values. Please keep up the excellent job that you're doing! Regards, a very satisfied customer. "
"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."
"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!!"

"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!"
