We've offered a number of wines from Writer's Block in the past - from Malbec to Cabernet Franc to Petite Sirah to Pinot Noir - and the feedback has been extremely positive. Today we go back to the high elevation vineyards of Lake County for a beautiful Syrah.
This wine has an SRP of $24 and comes from the Cana Springs Vineyard in Lake County. It is aged for 12 months in 15% new French, American and Hungarian oak and with several years of additional aging in the bottle, this 2017 vintage is drinking absolutely beautifully right now.
Even better, through today's Insider Deal you can get 4 bottles of the 2017 Writer's Block Syrah for just $52.99 ($13.25 a bottle), a discount of 45%!
Our extremely affordable 2-day summer shipping minimizes the transit time for a flat $9.99 per order no matter how many 4-packs you buy. (Orders will still ship 5-10 days after the conclusion of the offer.) Read on for our full review.

From the winery:
Aromas: Ripe plum, black pepper, with a rustic note of dried herbs.
Flavors: Fresh cherries, blackberries, sweet tobacco, olive and a kiss of french oak on the finish.
Structure: medium to full body, long length finish.
Produced & Bottled by QMS Group
The 2017 Writer's Block Syrah opens with a very pleasing aroma of blackberry, black cherry, black pepper and some other assorted spice notes along with a little cedar and leather.
Taking a sip reveals a rich, dense and juicy Syrah loaded with dark berry fruit wrapped up in a smooth, lush texture and featuring lots of well-integrated spice, pepper, licorice, black tea, coffee and even more secondary notes. It has really evolved well at this point and is drinking wonderfully now. More in the Australian Shiraz style than that of a Rhone Syrah, this is another wine that is quite fun to drink but also has plenty of complexity.
It ends dry, long and yummy! I'm guessing this one might have been a bit hard to handle in its youth but it's drinking just beautifully now. This is pretty impressive for a sub-$15 wine.

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 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!!"
