This smashingly fun to drink wine is back and it's less than $12 a bottle, the Smashberry Paso Robles Red Blend.
Have we got an undeniably tasty one today!
Back by popular demand, this unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Lagrein and Grenache from Paso Robles is both delicious and exceedingly fun to drink. It also gets a huge overall score on our rating system.
I have to admit that when I first saw the label I was a bit worried as to what kind of sweet fruit bomb might be inside. Luckily, it only took one sip to put my fears at ease. While this wine does indeed have a lot of fruit and some sweetness to it, it also has only 4.9 g/L of residual sugar.
And with our Insider Deal price of just $11.50 a bottle, there's no reason not to stock up.
As we mentioned above, thanks to this low price and a Taste Rating of 9 this one not only ranks out as a Bulk Buy, but with an overall score of 8.5 on our rating scale it gets quite a high Overall Rating as well. (Wilfred Wong evidently agrees giving this vintage 90 points.)
Through today's deal you can get 6 bottles of the 2018 Smashberry Red for just $68.99, or $11.50 a bottle.
Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $6.99 shipping, no matter how many 6-packs you buy. Read on for our full review.

The Smashberry Red Blend is 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Syrah, 16% Merlot, 8% Lagrein and 8% Grenache from Paso Robles, California. 25% of the wine was aged in French and American oak for 9 months.
From the winery:
Aromatics: Cabernet dominant, with cassis, blackberry, and sweet pipe tobacco. Hints of grape cotton-candy from the Grenache, and denser-than-usual structure from the rare Lagrein grape.
Palate: Delicious from first sip to the last, red & blackberry fruits, cassis and sweet black grape.
Food Pairing: Enjoy a glass by itself or with Prime Rib, BLT, Grilled Cheese, or any comfort food.
The 2018 Smashberry Paso Robles Red Blend opens with lots of berry aromas just as you would expect from the name but also nice touches of spice, coffee, tobacco and a little earth. It's an excellent start.
Taking a sip reveals a smooth and undeniably tasty wine featuring lots of ripe, juicy fruit, great structure, nice touches of spice and dusty tannins. With some sweetness to it, this is quite an attractive blend. (And at only 4.9 g/L of residual sugar, you get that nice touch of sweetness but still end up with less than 1 gram of sugar per glass.)
It ends dry, long, chewy and delicious. Not only is this quite fun to drink but it has a decent amount of complexity to it as well. And judging by the response the last time we offered it, you all agree!

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...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."
"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**"
"thanks for the deal...this wine is spectacular for $12.50/bottle. I am used to buying big, bold, young cabs or old vine zins and paying considerably more multiples of this price."
"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!!"
"AMAZING!! Damn, I should have bought a CASE!!"
"WOW. Just... wow. Absolutely delicious. If I knew it was going to be this good, I would have bought a case... or two. This was dead-center in the sweet spot of what I like. Thank you!!"
"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!!"
"My Insider Deal arrived just in time for my celebration tonight and it’s absolutely delicious! Cheers!"
"Wish I had doubled my order!"
"I've gotten quite a few of these and loved them all -- keep them coming!"
"Wow - this wine is amazing!!! Glad I have two more bottles of it!!"
