What I like about wine:

Wine is like a good woman: complex, mellifluous, and often voluptuous. Costly, yet undervalued. Sometimes tempestuous, yet self-sacrificing. Unlike a good woman, on the other hand, I'm happy to share a good wine...

    Castello Monaci Primitivo Piluna 2008
    Sold Out $12.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    This was a very nice, full bodied, well-balanced, smooth red that was fabulous with my dry-aged ribeye. Flavors were as described plus some cherry, esp in the long finish. Good value. 90 pts.

    Cameron Hughes Lot 119 Meritage 2005
    Sold Out $12.99
    Pair with: Beef > Mushroom
    This was wonderful, full-bodied, well-balanced red with smoky chocolate flavors coming to the fore. It paired exquisitely with a beef tenderloin I found on special, for which I whipped up a red wine pan sauce with mushrooms (using a less noble red for the sauce, btw). At $13, one better grab it before it's gone.

    Starborough Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2009
    Sold Out $12.49
    2014 vintage available for $10.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Pair with: White Fish
    This is a very nice SB, but has only a hint of the mineral background common to this varietal in New Zealand. Letting it warm up a tad brings out a fuller taste profile of which lemon and apple are the most prevalent (for once, I agree with the reviewer). After paying $12 at Wine.com, I found it at my local grocer (H.E.B.) for $10. I bought 6 to qualify for an additional 10% discount - an absolute steal at $9.
