Don't miss your last chance for this Perfect 10 (94+ point), 150 case, Rhone-style beauty from Dry Creek Valley. Insider Deal All-Star Peterson Winery is back with one of our favorite wines, the 2016 Vignobles Red!
We love Rhone style wines and today we have the return of a fantastic example.
This Dry Creek Valley blend is comprised of mostly Rhone varietals with 64% Carignane from the Forchini and Bradford Mountain Vineyard plus 21% Grenache from the West Vineyard along with 15% Petite Sirah from the Bernier Zinyard.
The wine was aged 22 months in 20% new French oak barrels, 15% new American oak barrels and 65% older, neutral barrels. Bottled in July of 2018, the wine was just released in January of 2022. And as we noted above, only 150 cases were produced.
We love the wines of Peterson Winery (as do many of you based on the success of our past deals) but today we have a very special one that tips its hat to the best of the Rhone. And if you're planning ahead, this wine would also be a great pick to grace your Thanksgiving table.
Winemaker Jamie Peterson explains the origins of this wine:
My father first produced Vignobles in the 1990’s as a way to showcase our Petite Sirah and other Rhone varietals in a savory blend that reflects the Dry Creek Valley terroir. And, as a side note, it was one of my favorite wines to sneak tastes of as a teenager.
By blending three varietals from distinctively different Dry Creek Valley vineyards, we are staying true to Fred’s vision of showcasing how our local terroir creates a unique palate profile. With this ninth vintage since the resurrection of the wine, we’ve built upon the core of spicy, zesty Carignane harvested off the Forchini Vineyard from the East Bench of Dry Creek Valley. Additional Carignane from our estate vineyard, along with Grenache from the West Vineyard add levels of varied fruits and plushness, and a layer of rich, dense Petite Sirah from the Bernier Zinyard brings it all together.
This mostly Rhone varietal blend creates layers of fruit, spices and herbs, along with complexity and balance — all hallmarks of wines from the Dry Creek Valley.
Not a subtle wine, but meant to show more finesse and refinement than some of our other blends. We’re glad to have Vignobles back in our cellar, and I no longer have to sneak tastes, but enjoy each sip all the same.
The 2016 Peterson Vignobles Red Wine has an SRP of $34 and is typically only available from winery at that price.

From the winery:
Subtle aromas reveal ripe plum, fresh picked red cherry and traces of minerality, leading into an easy sipping, delicious Rhône blend. The smooth, round entry flows into bright, yet balanced acidity that highlights the red fruit flavors. Wild plum, dark cherry and pomegranate are joined by mulberry, rhubarb and vivid strawberry mid-palate. Hints of mocha, molasses, red licorice, brown spices and oak join the luscious fruit as the wine lingers in the finish.
Try pairing with crispy pork belly served with a fresh fennel salad, or mulberry-balsamic sauce over sautéed chicken breasts.
Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Produced & Bottled by Peterson Winery
The 2016 Peterson Winery Vignobles Red Wine opens with lovely plum, spice, black pepper and a bit of a balsamic note along with some attractive red fruit and other savory aromas. It's a wonderfully enticing start.
That savory note continues when tasting this lovely blend. It's smooth, elegant and balanced yet still full of flavor. It features similar flavors to the nose with the spice developing nicely in the mouth and touches of coffee leading into the dry, savory, slightly grippy, extremely long finish.
And it gets even better after a few hours in the glass (and on day 2). Did I mention this is just lovely and very savory? Don't miss your chance to get this one. I love it again!

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"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. 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**"

"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!!"
