You'll thank us later. This award winning single vineyard Zinfandel and reader favorite is back and once again almost half off with our INSIDER DEAL. It's a new vintage of the Tin Barn Gilsson Vineyard Russian River Valley Zinfandel.
If you're a Zin lover (or any kind of wine lover really - see the story below), you don't want to miss this incredible deal on a wine that's drinking absolutely wonderfully right now.
This wine was a gold medal winner at the San Francisco International Wine Competition and comes from a 70 year-old vineyard in the Russian River Valley. It spends 19 months in oak barrels (20% new American). Only 521 cases of this small production beauty were made.
Even more importantly, the feedback we got on this wine the last time we offered it was absolutely stellar. That includes this gem from a frequent buyer who decided to give the wine a try even though they "don't drink Zin":
We, of course, had to try out the Tin Barn Zin. It was delicious. We finished off two bottles and, supposedly, don’t drink Zins. It’s wonderful…
This 100% Zinfandel, all from the Gilsson Vineyard in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, is pretty much only available from the winery at it's normal price of $29.
Today's 6 bottles for $89.99 deal; however, slashes that price to just $15 a bottle! That's a discount of 52%, or over $100, after factoring in the additional savings from our super low $5 shipping cost.

From the bottle:
Tin Barn Vineyards celebrates those hidden treasures that lie off the map. Winemaker Michael Lancaster works to create single vineyard wines expressing the true character of our Sonoma County home.
Gilsson Vineyard is a stretch of sandy loam east of Windsor, where morning fog allows the fruit to thrive in mild conditions. We have relied on this treasured source of Zinfandel for over a decade. With its velvety mouthfeel and deep black raspberry flavors, this is an uncommonly seductive wine.
Produced & Bottled by Tin Barn Vineyards
The 2015 Tin Barn Gilsson Vineyard Russian River Valley Zinfandel begins with a very nice, very attractive and succulent aroma of red cherry and a touch of a raisin-y note plus spice, vanilla, licorice and more.
In the mouth this is tasty and balanced with well integrated spice, a bit of an oaky streak and maybe just a hint of earth. It's big and loaded with deep and delicious fruit flavors but still elegant and refined, and not over the top like many other Zins. It carries the 15.7% alcohol quite well and it gets even better with some air.
It ends slightly tannic and very long with just a touch of heat and lingering spice under the sweet tasting fruit on the dry finish. I have to say once again that I really, really enjoyed this wine and it's drinking absolutely wonderfully right now. Just get it!
