    I don't completely get the hype for this wine. My first thought was...DRY...I mean desert dry. Then, I had to go searching for the fruit...and it took effort. My score...83/100. Try Mionetto Brut Prosecco and you'll understand my review.

    Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
    Sold Out $11.99
    2013 vintage available for $13.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Tasted TWICE with different results so that lowers the score...inconsistent. Columbia Crest is quality...but overrated in the press...most especially WS. I take their CC reviews with a healthy dose of skepticism after many, many personal tries with CC. This one is also waaay overrated. Even so, at $12 it is a solid, mass produced red that is smoothly fruit forward (for the U.S. mass market) with some spicy qualities mixed in. Overall, a rock solid buy and a true 88/100.

    Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling 2013
    Sold Out $11.99
    2014 vintage available for $10.99
    My bias is this...I'm partial to old world Rieslings...period. Old world fruit is superior to the new (U.S. & Aus.). This Riesling is enjoyable BUT it's fruit is sort of masked by an odd, but balanced, complexity that critics obviously liked. It is absolutely NOT sweet but has hints of sweetness. Needs more quality fruit. An enjoyable wine but buy low...it is overrated as a Riesling (as so many new world Rieslings are)...88/100.
