Half off Bulk Buy rated Malbec! The Writer's Block Malbec is back.
Now this is something to write home about, after all, who doesn't love a good Malbec??
What you may not realize; however, is that Argentina isn't the only prime spot for this variety. In fact, the high elevations and volcanic soils of Lake County make it the perfect spot to grow this grape.
Today's offer of the Writer's Block Malbec is a stellar example. Coming from vineyards at 1900+ feet of elevation in the Red Hills Lake County AVA, this wine was very well received the first time we offered it. Since then we've heard your pleas to bring it back and so today we've done just that.
This wine has an already reasonable SRP of $24, but of course you won't pay anywhere near that through our Insider Deal.
For the next day you can get 4 bottles of the Writer's Block Malbec for just $52.99, or $13.25 a bottle plus $5 for shipping. That's a total discount of 50% versus the normal shipped price!
Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 4-packs you buy.
The Writer's Block Malbec 4-pack 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, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI and WV. (These states are dependent on the individual licenses of this winery. Future deals may have more or less states available. )
This is a limited time, winery direct offer facilitated by our friends at Wine Country Connect. Sale ends Wednesday 12/1/2021 at noon (PT) unless it sells out sooner.

The 2017 Writer's Block Malbec comes from the Red Hills appellation of Lake County, which gets its name from the red volcanic soils here. The wine spends 12 months in equal parts French, American and Hungarian oak with 15% of the total being new. It has basically no residual sugar (.07 g/L) and only 1,600 cases were produced.
From the winery:
This Malbec is sourced from the Red Hills Appellation of Lake County. The vineyard was planted in 1999-2000 on well drained slopes of iron rich red soil, remnants of an eruption of Mt. Konocti. An excellent vineyard site above 2000 ft., we were one of the first wineries to work with Red Hills Malbec.
Winemaker Quincy Steele’s experiences working in Argentina inform this wine and its style. Native yeast fermentation, extended macerations, and cooler fermentation temperatures give him as much control as possible with respect to extracting. Aromas and flavors are very pronounced ripe red berry and black fruit, and spice with medium acid and moderate tannins.
Extremely versatile food wine that pairs well with most grilled meats and grilled vegetable preparations. Try a grilled flank steak with chimichurri sauce, a cassoulet or a cheese & charcuterie plate.
Produced & Bottled by QMS Group
The 2017 Writer's Block Malbec begins with a lovely aroma of plum, spice, black pepper and a little smoke.
The wine tastes fresh and fruity with lots of dark, tart, juicy flavors. Full-bodied and loaded with flavor, this fun to drink wine features plenty of acidity and firm tannins. A nice burst of spice and black pepper lead into the dry, long, grippy finish.
The ripe, juicy style actually reminds me a bit of one of our all-time favorite wines, the Scott Harvey Barbera.
