The only thing implausible about our latest INSIDER DEAL is the low price! The Twisted Oak Cockamamie Red Blend.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary cockamamie means "ridiculous or implausible".

While there are indeed a few unusual things about today's wine (adding Petite Sirah to a GSM blend and mixing vintages) the only implausible thing is the price at which we're offering this real, authentic, small production (just 400 cases) California red blend.
Seriously, stack this wine up against any of the mass produced California red blends out there and you'll be blown away by the difference in quality.
In fact, after tasting this one my wife confidently declared, "this is the least cockamamie thing I've drunk all week!"
The Twisted Oak Cockamamie Red Blend is normally only available through the winery for $22 per bottle. Through today's Insider Deal, Reverse Wine Snob readers can pick up 4 bottles for just $59.99 ($15 per bottle) plus only $5 for shipping.

We love offering wines like these from small, family owned wineries like Twisted Oak that have been diligently cranking out fabulous wines for years. This is a great opportunity to try out a wine that you'll likely (unfortunately) never see at your local store.
The Twisted Oak Cockamamie Red is a blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Petite Sirah from the Sierra Foothills and Lodi, California. The wine is aged in a combination of neutral, French, American and Hungarian oak and has very little residual sugar (around 1 g/L).
From the bottle:
At Twisted Oak, we don’t give a cluck whether you’re bi-coastal, bi-sected or strapped to a bi-lane. What’s so freakin’ Cockamamie about that? You may think we’ve flown the coop or crossed the road for the last time, but we are the winemakers here, and this Twisted chick is a true ace! So grab a bottle, strap yourself in, and hold on for the ride!
The Cockamamie Red Blend by Twisted Oak begins with a succulent and spicy berry fruit aroma that sucks you right into the glass. It's a wonderful preview of what's to come when tasting this smooth, delicious, medium-bodied wine. Full of well-integrated, but not overly oaky, spice and lots of dark berry fruit in the mouth, this is a really delicious blend. It ends dry and quite long. And as we mentioned before, at this price it is light years beyond what you typically find in California red blends. Highly Recommended!
