Save over 60% on the Highly Recommended Urgency Zinfandel and Urgency Red Wine from the Shannon Ridge Family of Wines.
6-pack daily drinker alert!
At just $12 a bottle through today's Insider Deal these two wines should be in your daily drinking rotation.
We've featured a number of wines from Shannon Ridge here over the years and today we've got two more good ones, a Zinfandel (with 25% Petite Sirah) and a Red Blend featuring Syrah, Malbec and Barbera. Read on for reviews of each.
Both of these wines sell for $30 from the winery but to be fair, when they can be found at retail they have sold closer to $15 a bottle. The problem is that with only around 4,000 cases of each produced they are pretty hard to find except through the winery.
Today's 1 Day Insider Deal gets you 3 bottles of the 2018 Urgency Zinfandel and 3 bottles of the 2018 Urgency Red Wine, for a total of 6 bottles, for just $71.99 or $12 a bottle.
That's a discount of 60% off the SRP and even more if you add in the additional savings from our $5 shipping versus the normal cost.
This 6-pack deal is available to ship to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NM, NV, NY, OK, OR, PA, RI, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI and WV. (These states are dependent on the individual licenses of the offering winery. Future deals may have more or less states available.)

First up we've got the 2018 Urgency Zinfandel, a blend of 75% Zinfandel and 25% Petite Sirah from Northern California. 3,993 cases were produced.
From the bottle:
Even before the Urgency vineyard was planted, Clay Shannon's instincts told him that the blend of volcanic soils would produce full, rich flavors and the long, warm summer days would ripen the grapes perfectly. This special piece of dirt creates wines that do not require long aging, the lush flavors show well upon their release.
Why wait to enjoy? Attack like with Urgency.
Produced & Bottled by Shannon Ridge Family of Wines
The 2018 Urgency Zinfandel begins with a pleasing aroma of black cherry, black pepper, licorice, a little bit of brambly blackberry and a hint of vanilla.
Taking a sip reveals this to be quite a tasty wine. It's really more a red blend that a Zin with 25% Petite Sirah but we're not complaining as we love these two varieties together. Full of rich fruit, more licorice, tasty vanilla notes and nice spice throughout, this is an easy sipper. It handles the almost 15% alcohol extremely well too.
It ends dry and long. This is quite good!

Next we've got the 2018 Urgency Red Wine, a blend of 60% Syrah, 26% Malbec and 14% Barbera from Northern California. 4,072 cases were produced.
The 2018 Urgency Red Wine begins with an attractive aroma of ripe black cherry, blackberry, plum and a little prune along with nice touches of spice and black pepper.
This is a really intriguing full-bodied blend that needs some time to open up but is pretty tasty once it does. It features good structure, good depth of flavor on the juicy fruit and nicely integrated spice notes.
It ends dry and long with some pleasing lingering spice and chocolate notes.
