    Taken Wine Company Complicated Red Blend 2011
    Sold Out $22.99
    2013 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Grenache-Syrah blend with a touch of Carignane, similar to Languedoc blends. Produced by Josh Phelps and Carlo Trinchero, both are sons of long-standing California wine families. The smooth grenache-syrah blend gets a bit of kick from the carignane. Not a wine for aging, very approachable now. This wine usually retails for about $20.

    Descendientes de Jose Palacios Petalos 2010
    Sold Out $19.99
    2013 vintage available for $22.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    I've never had the Mencia varietal before trying this wine. This wine is 100% Mencia, and I found it... different, and interesting. It's spicy, firm tannins, dark dry fruit, somewhat one-dimensional on the palate, but the finish is long and complex.

    Napa Cellars Zinfandel 2010
    Sold Out $18.99
    2012 vintage available for $17.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    If you like fruity Zins with lots of tannins, this is it. Not my personal preference style for a Zin, but it's definitely drinkable. Not sure it would become more mellow or complex with age.
