It's back, the Bulk Buy to end all Bulk Buys! It's the highest overall rating we have ever offered in one of our 1 Day Insider Deals, the Onesta Mentida Red Blend.
If you love Rhone varietals and GSM blends you will absolutely love this wine. In fact, at less than $12 a bottle this is the best value we have ever offered in one of our Insider Deals.
And while it's not precisely a GSM blend, it is a rather unique combination of 70% Syrah, 15% Zinfandel and 15% Carignane from California. Based on the popularity and feedback from the last time we offered it we decided to bring it back! (Lucky for us for the winery still had a little inventory left.)
The wine comes from Onesta, the same producer as our extremely popular Onesta Cinsault deal from the oldest (130 year-old) Cinsault vineyard in the world. And while this one doesn't come from nearly as old of vines, it is absolutely over-the-top delicious.
At an SRP of just $20, this is quite a value even at full price. Today's 1 Day Insider Deal; however, gets you 6 bottles for $69.99, that's just $11.67/bottle, which is just insane for a wine of this quality (and also over 40% off!)
This deal ships to: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, KS, LA, MA, MD, ME, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI and WY. (These states are dependent on the individual licenses of this winery. Future deals may have more or less states available.)
This is a limited time, winery direct offer facilitated by our friends at Wine Country Connect. Sale ends Tuesday 10/20 at noon (PST) unless it sells out sooner. Now that summer is over shipping is a flat $5 per order no matter how many 6-packs you buy and no styrofoam packaging!

From the bottle:
Guilty Pleasures (Mentidas), everyone has them. They're fun, playful and addictive - an instant jolt of pure happiness. Mentida Red Wine has dark fruit and velvety tannins that will relax you and chase the heavy thoughts from the mind. Flavors of cherry, and blackberry, notes of vanilla and mocha with a warm oak spice are a perfect match with any chocolate in the house or a bacon cheeseburger. Pop the cork, put your feet up and indulge in deep conversations or binge watch your favorite show. What's your Mentida?
The 2016 Onesta Mentida Red Blend begins with a fantastic aroma full of dark fruit plus cola, licorice and vanilla and even a bit of a wonderful meaty Syrah note.
Taking a sip reveals...YUM! Just sit back and enjoy this one, this is fun to drink and full of pleasure but that also means the bottle won't last long. Loaded with rich juicy dark fruit, nicely integrated peppery spice, plus a smooth, soothing mouthfeel, this is fantastic.
It drinks like a good GSM blend but it's not quite that with 15% Zinfandel and 15% Carignane (although the latter is pretty typical in these blends even though it doesn't get its own letter in the GSM abbreviation.)
It ends dry, long, and just delicious. This is wine made to sip your worries away, which means that in today's world you better stock up!
