This meaty, savory and delicious 91-93 point Syrah blend from South Africa is discounted $12 a bottle for the next 2 days! It's the Warp + Weft Shweshwe Red Blend.
Have we got a big, delicious one today!
We're delighted to be able to bring you this meaty, savory blend of 31% Shiraz (Syrah), 19% Carignan, 15% Mourvedre, 14% Cinsaut, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Pinotage and 2% Viognier from the Basson Family Vineyard in Swartland, South Africa. Aged for 2 years in neutral oak barrels, this wine comes from a vineyard planted in 1919!
Here's how the vineyard is described by the winery:
Located deep in the Swartland at the foot of the Pardeberg Mountains, the Basson Family Vineyard was first planted by Stephan Basson’s great grandfather in 1919. This vineyard represents a long tradition of winemaking in South Africa that can be traced back to the first plantings in 1659. Sourced from 30-year-old, dry-farmed, bush vines, this wine was produced in conjunction with the Basson family, who have been farming this estate in the Swartland for four generations. The Shweshwe Red blend reflects a quality of South African wine that is rarely seen in North America.
With an SRP of $27, this wine isn't typically available anywhere near our price range but today's 2-day Insider Deal changes that!

From the winery:
Warp + Weft are the crossed threads that comprise a piece of fabric. This project is the result of the intersection of many different people and the idea that these interwoven “threads of life” can create something greater than the sum of the parts. Shweshwe is a traditional fabric produced in South Africa, considered the denim of the Western Cape. It’s durable, worn by everyone, and rooted in tradition.
The wine opens with complex but inviting aromas of graphite, black pepper and mulberry. The palate is rich and dynamic with flavors of Damson plum, kola nut, sassafras, tayberry, and Bing cherry. Silken but lengthy tannins carry the wine from start to finish, with notes of tobacco, oak and spiced vanilla.
The 2017 Warp + Weft Shweshwe Red Blend opens with a funky, meaty aroma and I love it! This blend definitely has a good amount of influence from the Shiraz/Syrah. Full of mulberry and other dark fruits plus black pepper, graphite, licorice, tobacco and touches of smoke and leather, this one has it all.
The wine tastes smooth, savory and delicious with similar flavors to the nose. All those varieties combine quite harmoniously in the mouth of this full-bodied wine. This is delicious. And it gets even better after it has some air.
It ends dry, a bit grippy, savory and quite long. It was similar on day two.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"Hi Jon, Best thing I ever did is buy wine thru you...not been disappointed with any of them! Thank you SO MUCH!"
"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!"
"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 $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!"
"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 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**"

"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!!"

"I have loved all my RWS deals, can't wait to get this one."

"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!!"
