We're big fans of the wines made in Lake County, as evidenced by our many deals from wineries like Two Jakes, Steele Wines, Winesmith and the producer of today's deal, Shannon Ridge.
The higher altitudes and volcanic soils of this area produce some absolutely lovely wines and today we have an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon at a highly reduced price.
The High Valley Stage Cabernet Sauvignon, which also has 1% Petite Sirah and 1% Petit Verdot and basically no residual sugar, has an SRP of $40.

This Cabernet Sauvignon was inspired by the homestead settlers who found their way to California by stage coach. To this day, the 1871 “High Valley Stage” Road, which brought many settlers to Lake County, runs through the Shannon Ridge Mountain Estate Vineyards.
Full-bodied and silky, with flavors of cherries, plum and spice, this wine celebrates the adventurous spirit of that time.
The 2020 vintage started out dry and warm. Weeks of 100+ degree weather in early May gave the vines a jump start. The heat held strong until August with a record 116˚F day in July! We started harvest a week earlier than normal, with all white grapes in house and fermenting beautifully by Sept 20th. The temperature cooled down to 80s during the harvest lull and stretched out the hang time on our reds allowing phenolic ripeness of the skins. A welcome cloud cover came on October 10th and allowed the fruit to dehydrate and get more hang time. Tonnages ended up lighter due to low spring rains. We are seeing good color concentration and density in this vintage.
Produced and Bottled by Shannon Family of Wines
The 2020 High Valley Stage Cabernet Sauvignon from Shannon Ridge opens with aromas of dark fruit, spice, cola, cedar, a little graphite and more. There are lots of good things happening on the nose, especially after some time to breathe.
Taking a sip reveals a smooth and silky wine that is quite easy to drink. With similar flavors to the nose and some dusty tannins it's not only tasty but also balanced and quite graceful really. The whole thing just keeps getting better the more air it has.
It ends dry, grippy and long. By day 2 the wine is even more expressive and has better depth. This is really nice!

"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"

"This an absolutely amazing wine, Jon...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 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 only drink Reverse Wine Snob wine, it actually doesn't make sense to buy from a store. You don't get anything interesting, unique, and full of value otherwise."
"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**"

"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!!"
