High class Pinot Noir for less than $12 a bottle! But you need to act fast as the Vinum Cellars Monterey Pinot Noir is only available for one day.
We're delighted to be back with another offer from Vinum Cellars. We've featured a number of their wines here to date, with great success, including the very popular Cherry Bomb Pinot Noir which sold very fast both times we offered it.

Today we've got another great Pinot Noir for you. This one comes from the Arroyo Loma Vineyard in King City, Monterey, California. The grapes were farmed by famed grower Steve McIntyre of McIntyre Vineyards and spend 18 months in French oak (burgundy barrels).
This wine, which received 91 points from Wilfred Wong, has a very reasonable SRP of $18. As we've always said, Pinot Noir under $20 is a tough nut to crack. This one does it very well at $18.
But, of course, this being an Insider Deal means we've got something even better for you. For the next day you can get 6 bottles of the Vinum Cellars Monterey Pinot Noir for just $69.99. That's a savings of 35% and an incredible $11.67 per bottle price! This is an insane deal for Pinot Noir of this quality.
This 6-pack deal ships to: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI and WY.

Once the deal ends and the orders are consolidated (7-10 days after the conclusion of the offer), we are also now sending all orders via 2-day shipping (in styrofoam) to minimize transit time and protect against heat exposure during the summer.

The 2017 Vinum Cellars Monterey Pinot Noir is 100% Pinot Noir (Dijon clones 115, 667 and Pommard Clone 4). The grapes are farmed organically although not certified as such. The wine spends 18 months in 2 year-old Francois Frerre burgundy barrels and is vegan friendly.
From the bottle:
Since 1997 Vinum Cellars has been committed to producing quality wines from single vineyards in premium coastal and cool climate growing areas within California. Today our home is in restored 1880 farmhouse which is depicted on the front label of this bottle. Next time you are in the Napa Valley, we invite you to visit our tasting room and brick oven café opening in 2020 at 499 Devlin Rd. Napa, CA 94558.
The 2017 Vinum Cellars Monterey Pinot Noir begins with quite an enticing aroma of cherry vanilla cola and strawberry plus a little mint, licorice and earth.
Tasting the wine reveals lots of juicy tart fruit (strawberry, raspberry, cherry, cranberry) tinged with oaky spice and licorice with a nice earthy streak underneath. With a smooth and even a bit silky mouthfeel this is just a really solid, tasty Pinot Noir at an incredible price.
It ends dry and quite long with a slightly grippy, really delicious finish. Well-made and extremely drinkable, this is exactly the type of bottle we like to have on hand at all times. And to get it at less than $12 a bottle is quite a feat!
