It's back, the Bulk Buy to end all Bulk Buys! One of the highest overall ratings we have ever offered in one of our 1 Day Insider Deals, the Onesta Mentida Red Blend.
Back by popular demand and over 50% off!
If you love Rhone varietals and GSM blends you will absolutely love this wine. In fact, at less than $11 a bottle this might be 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 previous offers we decided to bring it back! (Plus we were almost out of our personal supply!)
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 of the 2016 Onesta Mentida Red for $64.99. That's just $10.83/bottle, which is insane for a wine of this quality!
Shipping, as always, is just $5 which means your total discount after factoring in the savings on shipping is over 50%! Buy multiple 6-packs and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many you buy.
This 6-pack deal is available to ship to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, 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 the offering 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 Friday 11/26/2021 at noon (PT) unless it sells out sooner.

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?
Produced and Bottled by 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!

And here's what people are saying about our previous Insider Deals:
