One of our most popular deals is back just in time for your spooky celebrations. It's the Stoke's Ghost Petite Sirah!
Of course there's nothing spooky about saving more than $20 a bottle on this big, bold and harmoniously balanced wine with multiple 92 point scores and a great story behind the label.
Add in just $5 for shipping and this is a sure winner not just for Halloween but any other day of the week as well. But you better act fast as this deal vanishes in just 1 day!
Let's face it, the marketing of a wine is important. From the name to the label to the story behind it all, it can make a huge difference in helping to stand out in a giant sea of choices. And while we are all about what is inside the bottle, it's always a bonus when the outside of the bottle is just as good.
Today we've got both - a fabulous wine (made from one of our very favorite varieties) and a great story. Even better, the price can't be beat in our 1 Day Insider Deal.
Here's the true story from the back label:
James Stokes was a British sailor who jumped ship in Monterey in 1833, passing himself off as a doctor with stolen medicine. Despite killing a significant number of patients, Stokes was appointed personal physician to Governor Jose Figueroa. Within a year, the governor was dead. Stokes' sons confronted him and he ingested poison, falling lifeless at their feet. Stokes' adobe home still stands and a man dressed in 1800s garb is often seen climbing the stairs and passing through the walls. This is Stokes' Ghost.
Talk about a conversation starter, the label even leaves off the part about his sons being the result of his marriage to the widow of one of his patients and even becoming Mayor of Monterey!
The average price for this wine on wine-searcher is $39, with several sellers in the $40 to $50 range (per bottle)! James Suckling and Enobytes both gave the vintage we are offering here (2016) 92 points.
In addition, here are a couple of the comments we received in Facebook group from buyers of the previous deal:

Stoke's Ghost from Scheid Family Wines is Petite Sirah from their estate vineyard in the Hames Valley at the southern end of Monterey. The wine is aged in American and Hungarian oak for 14 months.
The 2016 Stoke's Ghost Petite Sirah pours super dark and inky in the glass, just as you would expect with a good Petite Sirah.
The very enticing aroma is loaded with tons of dark berry fruit, a little spice and vanilla, violets and more.
It only takes one sip to know that this is tasty Petite Sirah, sure to cure whatever ails you. It's full of juicy, dark fruit with nice edges of spice, herbs, vanilla and more.
It is a big and bold wine like you'd expect from Petite Sirah but completely balanced as well. With a smooth and silky mouthfeel and slightly chewy tannins everything just works together quite harmoniously.
It ends dry and a bit grippy with a savory finish that hangs around for a very long time, just begging you to take another sip.
This is some good medicine and a sure remedy for boring reds. If the good doctor was as inviting and reassuring as this wine, it's easy to see how he lured so many people into his web!
