Buy! Buy! Buy!
We’ve had some pretty amazing Insider Deals here at Reverse Wine Snob, but today we’ve outdone them all. The sell-out potential for this one is very high and with good reason.

Many of you are, of course, familiar with Clark Smith (the guy who literally wrote the book on winemaking) from our previous Two Jakes and WineSmith deals. In fact, today’s wine will be especially familiar to many of you…
That’s because this is the same wine as $50 WineSmith Cabernet Sauvignon we previously offered, EXCEPT that this version was aged in barrel for an additional 22 months.
That’s right, the previous iteration of this wine spent a “mere” 60 months in oak. We gave it a perfect 10 Taste Rating. This version spent 82 months in oak and those extra 22 months have given the wine even more layers and complexity. In other words, this one might just be going to 11!
Not only is this wine even better, here’s the real kicker — today’s deal is actually $5 less per bottle than that previous offering!
All of this to say, this is arguably the absolute best deal we have ever offered. If you’ve been on the fence about trying one of our Insider Deals, it doesn’t get any better than this. And to our regular buyers (thank you!) – it’s time to stock up, especially since this wine will age beautifully for at least another decade.
The 2013 Two Jakes of Diamonds Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is typically only available from the winery for $50 per bottle.
Today’s Insider Deal gets you 3 bottles for $59.99, or just $20 a bottle. That’s an incredible discount of $30 PER bottle or 60%!
As always shipping is just $5. Buy multiples and you save even more since you’ll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 3-packs you buy.
This 3-pack deal is available to ship to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, LA, MA, MD, ME, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI and WY.

The 2013 Two Jakes of Diamonds Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Clone 4 and Clone 15) from Diamond Ridge Vineyards at 2,000 feet of altitude on the volcanic hillsides of Clear Lake in Lake County. Just 198 cases were produced.
These are prime Cabernet grapes. In fact, they are so prime that in some years Clark is not even able to make this wine because the Napa wineries gobble them up.
From the winery:
Diamond Ridge Vineyards is located at the southeast corner of Clear Lake in Lake County. This remarkable site enjoys a cooling lake effect due to its close proximity to water. Its 2,000-foot altitude and clean, traffic-free air allow its fifteen clones of Cabernet Sauvignon to bathe in sunlight high in UV, resulting in brilliant color, firm tannins and rich fruit aromas. Clone 15 is characterized by rich black cherry aromas and substantial tannins, while Clone 4 contributes finesse and brightness.
The vineyard’s stony volcanic soil provides great drainage to restrain the foliar canopy and also imparts energetic mineral energy and surprising longevity. Accordingly, the wine was allowed 82 months in 20-year old neutral French oak which developed seductive tobacco nuances greatly enhanced its complexity, adding elements of mysterious and intriguing “come hither” aromatics.
The mouth possesses a rich, generous core of black cherry and a lively mineral finish. Tannin structure, once quite hard, has evolved to a pleasant roundness: velvety on the back palate but still with a firm grip up front, indicating both drinkability and further aging potential of perhaps a decade, but entirely enjoyable right now.
Vinted & Bottled by Two Jakes of Diamonds
The 2013 Two Jakes of Diamonds Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a wonderful aroma of black cherry and beautifully integrated spice along with touches of vanilla, tobacco and much more. This is a wine to sit and ponder, no doubt.
Tasting reveals a smooth, deep, rich, juicy and downright delicious Cab. This one was just starting to open up after several hours in the glass so give it time, give it time! Honestly, every sip was better than the last. As we noted on the previous version of this wine, it is just so dynamic and generous in the mouth that it’s hard to come up with words that do it justice and that is even more true after another 22 months in barrel.
It ends with a juicy, mineral, very long, slightly chewy and extremely satisfying finish. Absolutely delicious!
