The Bulk Buy rated GSM blend from our very first Insider Deal is back and better than ever! Check out our giant rating and equally giant 56% discount on the Vigilance Cimarron Red.
We're delighted today to bring back the wine we selected for our very first Insider Deal. That's right, the 2015 vintage of today's wine was the first wine ever offered as an Insider Deal almost 4 years ago (December 2018)! And, in fact, we've loved this wine going all the way back to the 2010 vintage.
The 2017 we are offering today might be the best we've tried so far, as you can tell by our giant Overall Rating, which is of course helped by our equally giant discount. Aged wonderfully at this point, today's offer is sure to elevate your daily drinking to the next level. And if you're a fan of Rhone style wines you especially don't want to miss this smooth, savory and succulent GSM blend.
The Vigilance Cimarron is 50% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache and 5% Petit Verdot, all estate grown, from the 1,400 to 3,000 foot elevations of the Red Hills sub-appellation in Lake County, California. The wine spends a good amount of time in French and American oak barrels and has no residual sugar.
This wine has an SRP of $25 but you won't even pay half that price through today's deal.
For the next day you can get 6 bottles of the 2017 Vigilance Cimarron for just $69.99, or $11.67 a bottle. That's a DISCOUNT of over $13 per bottle!
After factoring in our very reasonable $6.99 shipping you're savings go up to 56%! Better yet, buy multiples and you'll still pay just $6.99 in shipping, no matter how many 6-packs you buy. Read on for our full review.
This 6-pack deal is available to ship to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, TX, VA, VT, WA and WI. (These states are dependent on the individual licenses of the offering winery and are not representative of all our deals.

From the bottle:
Our vineyards certified sustainably farmed using native cover crops and sheep to control the weeds between the rows. Ever vigilant, our watchful sheep dogs stand guard over the flock and vines, protecting them from harm. It is this same spirit that drives us in our obsession to craft wines that honor and respect the earth.
-Clay & Angie Shannon, Proprietors
Produced and Bottled by Vigilance Winery and Vineyards
The 2017 Vigilance Cimarron Lake County Red Blend begins with a very enticing aroma of black cherry, raspberry, vanilla, dried herbs, cola, tobacco and more.
The wine features a wonderful smooth and savory mouthfeel and is loaded with juicy, delicious, rich, vibrant and tart fruit. All the flavors from the bouquet continue in the mouth along with velvety layers of spice and black pepper in this well-balanced wine.
While quite good when popped and poured, I'd recommend giving it some time to breathe to get the maximum enjoyment out of it as there is quite a lot of enjoyment to be had. The grippy finish is dry, fruity and long with lingering black pepper, spice and a hint of tobacco. This is a succulent wine that is once again just a pleasure to drink.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"I opened up our first bottle last weekend and was blown away. "
"Wow!! Just got my shipment. It is absolutely tremendous. "
"Hi Jon, Best thing I ever did is buy wine thru you...not been disappointed with any of them! Thank you SO MUCH!"
"Would you happen to be offering this one again anytime soon? I regret not buying more. This was exceptional!"
"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...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!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"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 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!"
"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
"I really missed the boat by only getting four bottles of this offer last month. Should have bought least at a case."
"My wife and I have really enjoyed getting to know new wines (and better than we used to buy!) Thanks for what you do and providing this service!"
"Jon - you have to stop offering all of these amazing deals. My self discipline is fading fast!!"
"I recently took advantage of your offer. So glad I did, and now sorry I did not buy more (like all those quotes on your website!)"
"The wine is outstanding. I am so glad I bought a case."
" I only drink Reverse Wine Snob wine, it actually doesn't make sense to buy from a store. You don't get anything interesting, unique, and full of value otherwise."
"Jon, I should have bought more! Delicious!!"
"I am a Certified Specialist of Wine. I love your deals. You pick great wines!! Kudos to you for getting us great deals!"
"Wish I would have ordered more!! It was great. Looking back, I wish I didn’t open it at our annual pool party. It’s gone. **Sob**"
"thanks for the deal...this wine is spectacular for $12.50/bottle. I am used to buying big, bold, young cabs or old vine zins and paying considerably more multiples of this price."
"Hi Jon, just had to let you know that I love this wine!!!! Thanks for doing what you do."
"I have purchased many times over the last several months and loved the wines!"
"Seriously amazing deal!!! I love a bold red, and Reverse Wine Snob delivered!!! Perfect for a rainy night!!"
"AMAZING!! Damn, I should have bought a CASE!!"
"WOW. Just... wow. Absolutely delicious. If I knew it was going to be this good, I would have bought a case... or two. This was dead-center in the sweet spot of what I like. Thank you!!"
"I have loved all my RWS deals, can't wait to get this one."
"I know that you don't need to have 'customers' email you every time they like a wine that you have suggested/rated, and I have enjoyed many of your recommendations. But this Tannat was spectacular! Wow! That was amazing!"
"I finally opened a bottle of this and it did not disappoint. Delicious!!!"
"Thanks for a great service! We’ve been loving your emails and wine deals!"
"This insider deal is a great wine!!! So glad I got it!!"
"My Insider Deal arrived just in time for my celebration tonight and it’s absolutely delicious! Cheers!"
"Wish I had doubled my order!"
"I've gotten quite a few of these and loved them all -- keep them coming!"
"Wow - this wine is amazing!!! Glad I have two more bottles of it!!"
"Bought a case wish I had purchased 2-3 cases. Fantastic buy for the price."
"This Insider Deal was the best ever. This wine is amazing!!! Strongly recommend."
