    Santa Rita Medalla Real Carmenere 2008
    $19.99
    A true mess of a wine. Color looks like earth, and tastes like it too. Unlike other Carmeneres, this one (in my opinion) lacks the flavorful bouquet, the fruitful taste, or a smooth finish. For the price, $20+, there are better options, and definitely better Carmeneres out there. This one is barely meeting the cooking wine category in my book.

    Melipal Malbec 2006
    Sold Out
    $20.00
    Fantastic aroma and color. Full, bold taste that fills your mouth with sensations, then is sucked dry by a smooth finish. Great bold red, but would reserve for a big steak or other hearty red meat. I think it would overpower anything less. 14% ALC maybe a bit overboard, but it is balanced well enough. Well worth the price. Go for it.

    Archetype Old Vine Reserve Shiraz 2005
    Sold Out
    $33.99
    Great color, average aroma, bland taste, dead/dry finish. Wine.com reduced the price by $2 a bottle - so that tells you the truth. Average at best, and actually was a little better chilled up, but there are better choices at your local supermarket. (14.2%)
