A Bulk Buy red blend full of our favorite things. This a Reverse Wine Snob exclusive and it's only available for 1 day!
Super ripe, super juicy and super good, the Kunde North Coast Private Reserve Red! This deal ends Wednesday, May 20 2020 at noon PST.
This, folks, is what our Bulk Buy rating is all about. A reasonable enough price that you don't have to wait for a special occasion to open it up with a taste that would do any special occasion proud.
Not only that but this is a Reverse Wine Snob exclusive! And we're not just talking about the deal -- you can't even get this wine anywhere else.
That's because this was a special wine made for a private client that only became available because of a certain global pandemic.
After hearing that it might be available, it only took one sip for us to know that we wanted ALL of the extremely small 133 case production to offer to our readers.
We're only offering this one as a 6-pack, but frankly that might not even be enough at the incredible price of about $14 a bottle. With only 133 cases made, this one won't be back so you've only got 1 day to get your hands on some!
Because this wine has never been sold at retail there isn't any established pricing but Kunde reds typically have SRPs in the $20-$40 range with the reserve level wines priced even higher. (We previously recommended their $35 Malbec as a Saturday Splurge).
Today's 1 Day Insider Deal gets you 6 bottles of this Bulk Buy rated red blend for just $83.99, or $14 a bottle.
This sale is only available for a very limited time, ending Wednesday 5/20 at noon. It ships to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI and WY.

We don't have a lot of info on the wine itself but we can tell you that it is anchored by 52% Petite Sirah, one of our favorite varieties, especially when it comes from the North Coast of California. It is rounded out with 26% Zinfandel, 8% Merlot, 8% Syrah and 6% Barbera.
The wine has also obviously spent some time in oak and being a 2016 vintage that is just being released now, we'd guess it was a substantial amount of time at that. We don't have an exact residual sugar level but it is dry.
From the bottle:
A captivating and lush deep dark red wine from our favorite North Coast vineyards. Intense flavors of blackberry, black cherry and cassis with notes of spicy black pepper and sweet vanilla masterfully crafted with a velvety smooth finish.
The 2016 Kunde North Coast Private Reserve Red opens with a very enticing aroma of ripe and sweet smelling dark berry fruit along with excellent touches of vanilla, spice and black pepper.
This dry wine tastes super ripe, super juicy and super good! This is just a fun one to drink with great depth of flavor on the fruit, a very smooth, lush mouthfeel and really excellent streaks of spice and vanilla. It ends dry with lots of long lasting vanilla-soaked sweet fruit flavors.
This is a wonderfully tasty blend with all the components playing a part, even the Barbera. You really can't go wrong with this one so stock up!
