Blanchards Wine & Spirits is offering 10% off $100 orders with code CYBER10 -or- 20% off $250 with code CYBER20. Discount applies only to non-sale items (prices end in "9"). Full offer details here.
Here are six wines I thought were nice deals for one reason or another:
- 2010 St. Cosme Gigondas Valbelle $62.99 ($50.39 after 20% off)
The regular St. Cosme Gigondas (95WS/$41) got all the attention, but this one was rated 97 points. Nationwide low price here. Buy buy buy!
- 2007 Le Vieux Donjon $64.99 ($51.99 after 20% off)
Still some great 2007 CdPs around, and this is one of my favorites.
- Anthill Farms
Ample availability even for their single vineyard Pinots makes me refrain from buying their wines mailing list. Check out their 2010 Anderson Valley bottling for $37.99 before discount to get a feel for their style.
- 2009 Ridge Lytton Springs Zinfandel $32.99 ($26.39 after 20% off)
If there was a "quality never goes out of style" winery for me, it's Ridge. Or maybe it's more like "nobody ever got fired for ordering Ridge". Hard to beat this wine south of $30.
- 2009 Shafer Relentless $74.99 ($59.99 after 20% off)
The 2008 vintage of this wine (96 points/$60) was recently named Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year. It was released quite a while ago and is very difficult to find. The 2009 was just rated 95 points and is still available. They have only a few bottles left so act quick especially on this one.
- 2009 Benton Lane Oregon Pinot Noir $22.99 ($18.39 after 20% off)
An Oregon Pinot Noir recommendation here on the WWP? You've got that right! I've been on a roll with 2009s from Oregon lately and I've enjoyed Benton Lane south of $20 in the past. Grab this one as a filler.
