    Penley Estate Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
    Sold Out $19.99
    2011 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    We tasted this with a big California Cab... this wine won. Something about how smooth and supple it is on the palate, combined with the ripe fruit and sweet herbal notes (eucalyptus anyone?) make it just plain delicious. Light enough to pair well with food (particularly anything with herbs on it - rosemary, thyme, etc), but balanced enough to hold up on its own, too. Great stuff.

    Donkey and Goat El Dorado Grenache Noir 2010
    Sold Out $20.99
    2013 vintage available for $24.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Delicious Grenache - great example of how bright and refreshing the varietal can be. Yet this wine had depth to it as well. This is one of my favorite wineries and their Grenache really holds up. Great wine for gourmet pizza, pasta with a tomato-based sauce or just sitting on your porch...

    Donkey and Goat The Recluse Broken Leg Vineyard Syrah 2009
    Sold Out $30.99
    2011 vintage available for $36.99
    so tempting to drink this now because it has all those delicious floral and spice notes on the nose, but wait, because this gets even better with a few years in the cellar. I would totally buy a case, then drink one every year just to see it evolve. This wine has character, a sense of place and a whole bunch of layers that have you wanting to savor each sip, but also wanting to drink more! LOVE this wine!

    Jim Barry The Lodge Hill Shiraz 2008
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $16.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Delicious wine. The ripe fruit flavors (black cherry, blackberry, raspberry) are backed by an excellent herbal note - think mint and eucalyptus. Great acidity, medium tannins, lovely balance and a long finish. A group of us polished off two bottles faster than we should have - it was a little too easy going down. Great match for burgers, though I'd enjoy this with many different dishes as it is not too heavy, but rich enough to match with other bold flavors.
