From the winery:
The 2017 Pickberry Vineyard Merlot offers a burst of black cherry with a touch of cocoa and lingering finish.
Pickberry Vineyard sprawls over 30 rolling acres on the northeast slope of Sonoma Mountain. Planted in the 80s in volcanic soil, the vines are subject to balmy days and cool nights.
Produced & Bottled By Tin Barn Vineyards
The 2017 Tin Barn Pickberry Vineyard Merlot begins with a simply wonderful aroma of dark fruit, vanilla, spice, cocoa, licorice, leather and more.
It only takes one sip to discover this is pure pleasure. In the mouth you'll find lots of rich, juicy fruit loaded with all those same touches from the nose - vanilla, spice, cocoa, leather, licorice and more. If you enjoy wines with a lot of oak influence, this is the one for you! There's nothing subtle about it including the tannins. Quite tasty now, this is likely to improve over the next couple of years.
It ends dry, grippy, very long and juicy with lots of lingering flavors.

Here's what people are saying about our previous Insider Deals:
"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. And $5 shipping for four bottles? 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!"
"Great deals for delicious wines!"
"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 $5 or $10 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!"
