SAVE $XX a bottle on this 91-93 point Cab made from organically grown grapes and aged in French oak for 18 months. Don't miss the Sea Pines Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
Have we got a nice one today!
Sourced from a steep hillside vineyard with volcanic soils at 1,800-2,000 feet above sea level in Mendocino County, only 1,500 cases of this beauty were produced. The vineyard itself has been certified organic for over 30 years and the result is a wonderfully easy-drinking Cab that also has a good amount of complexity. And with today's 47% discount there's no reason not to stock up!
As we noted above, the wine was aged in 100% French oak (2nd use barrels) for 18 months. It is a dry wine, with very little residual sugar. It's also important to note that 2020 was a non-fire year for Mendocino County.
It comes from the always reliable Vinum Cellars, who are responsible for many popular Insider Deals over the last few years.
Here's their vision for the Sea Pines brand:
Sea Pines Vineyard is a coastal brand made from certified organic grapes. The brand came to be from years of building relationships with the best coastal growers in California who share our passion for sustainability and whole value Organic Winegrowing. Currently we offer a Sauvignon Blanc and a Cabernet Sauvignon, but plan to expand the range as we are able to find new grape sources. Sea Pines are found along California’s coast line from Monterey through Carmel, Marin, Sonoma and Mendocino Coasts and signify cooler climates as these trees showcase the windy climate with its Bonsai-type architecture formed from breezy climates.
The wine has an SRP of $32 and is typically only available from the winery at that price, but not today!
For the next day you can get 4 bottles of the 2020 Sea Pines Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon for just $XX.99 ($XX/bottle). That's a discount of XX%!

From the winery:
Vineyard and Winemaking Facts: This organically grown Cabernet Sauvignon is from Cox Vineyard in Ukiah within Mendocino County. This vineyard has been certified organic for over 30 years and farmed by Chuck Vau. The vineyard is a steep hillside vineyard with volcanic red soils perfect for drainage typically limiting yield. This stunning vineyard is 1,800 – 2,000 feet above sea level. The 2020 vintage was a good crop and in a NON-fire year for Mendocino County which produced cosmetically perfect, loose clustered grapes with no raisins or rot of any kind. The grapes were hand harvested early morning and delivered to the winery shortly after where the grapes were gently destemmed and transferred into tank where the must cold soaked for 72 hours with pumpovers 3 times daily. After yeasting the must the pumpovers continued and fermentation completed in 11 more days for a total of 14 days on the skins. The wine was separated from the skins through pressing and then transferred into 2 year old French Oak barrels where the wine was allowed to age for 18 months. The result is a wine that is supple and integrated in its oak profile while full expression is given to the fruit.
Tasting Notes: The color of this intense Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep cranberry, purple hue with excellent viscosity that coats the glass with long legs indicating the high level of extraction. The nose is very intense with cherry vanilla and ripe blackberry notes which carry into the palate by way of additional blue fruit. The palate is mouth coating and rich with intense huckleberry and blueberry notes with subtle spice and toasted vanilla. The finish is complete with solid blue fruit notes and silky texture as well as mouth filling tannins from both the Cabernet fruit and the extended time in barrel.
Food Pairings: This ripe and rich Cabernet Sauvignon pairs really well with a salt and pepper grilled New York steak and served with rosemary roasted fingerling potatoes and a mesclun of greens.
Vinted and Bottled by Sea Pines Vineyard
The 2020 Sea Pines Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a very pleasing aroma of black cherry, blackberry, cedar, vanilla and just a hint of spice.
The first thing you notice when taking a sip is the very smooth and silky mouthfeel, but you also quickly recognize the good balance and wonderful depth on the juicy fruit. Not to mention that it has just the right amount of oak influence. Everything works together quite harmoniously here!
It ends dry, grippy and quite long. It was just as good on day 2.
This is a wonderfully easy-drinking Cab with enough just the right amount of complexity. Stock up!

"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."

"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."

"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**"

"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!"

"I have loved all my RWS deals, can't wait to get this one."

"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!!"
"I love the wines that you offer. I have sent your information to many people. I also split orders with friends. There are so many sites that inflate the retail so it looks like the deal is better than it is. I find that annoying and I distrust those sites. As a Certified Specialist of Wine and a retired wine distributor, I definitely appreciate your picks and your pricing. "
