    Santa Rita Medalla Real Carmenere 2008
    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
    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
    Great color, average aroma, bland taste, dead/dry finish. 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%)
