What I like about wine:

Look for the unusual, with emphasis on price/value. Love reds, especially South American Malbecs, California cabs and zins, and Italian reserve Chianti. Special fondness for bordeaux blends and meritage styles.

    Desert Wind Ruah 2005
    Sold Out $19.99
    One of the best price/value wines of 2008. The proof is in the difficulty of finding and purchasing this wine. At $10 a bottle, which I found several months ago, to the current (if you can even get it) $20+ price, this remains an excellent value, considering the drinkability, deep color, and fine food match-ups. Price/Value for 2008....it doesn't get better than this. I use Cellar Tracked for my inventory and reviews, and was dismayed by all the snobs who carefully found miniscule issues with this wine. Good grief, these folk need to get a life, and a new tasting tongue! Keep it coming Ruah!

    Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Sold Out $19.29
    I've tasted previous vintages of the Indian Wells and always found them very reliable. This 2005 is no exception. Beautiful color (deep garnet) and subtle nose of violets and cherries. Wonderful on the palate and with a good finish. I'll save the other 5 I purchased, as another 1-3 years would enhance the experience.
