    Bodegas Muriel Reserva 2008

    Such a warm and inviting nose on this one. The best Rioja at this price point that I've tasted so far this year. Rich, grippy tannins and nice long finish. A very good value. I'd buy again.

    Irresistible. Rasberry infused chocolate pervades the nose. Supple, graceful, and complex. 'Nuff said.

    I can't think of a better wine for $$. Fabulous black fruit and velvety tannins made this a great pairing for spicy chicken tacos. Everyone at the table loved it - no easy feat!

    Dry Creek Vineyard Fume Blanc 2011
    Sold Out $12.79
    2013 vintage available for $14.99
    Exceptional for the price! I'm giving it 3 stars because I reserve 5 stars for my bucket list picks and 4 stars for my outstanding wine picks. This is an extremley good Sauvignon Blanc and a great deal for the price. It overperforms and refuses to be overstated. This is not like New Zealand SB (meaning no huge grapefruit here), instead you'll find hints of all things citrus, a lovely light body and a refreshing profile. I think the winemaker's notes on this one are spot-on.

    Quinta do Vallado Douro Tinto 2009
    Sold Out $23.99
    2011 vintage available for $17.99
    Best kept secret of the wine world? Portugal! Undervalued and overshadowed by it's more famous neighbors, Portuguese wines are always struggling to earn some respect (picture Rodney Dangerfield looking bug-eyed and incredulous). Well, I love you Portugal and this wine is the perfect example of why. 2009 Tinto is lively, juicy, savory and chalk full of sexy tannins. It's a complete wine and completely integrated, so don't be afraid to drink this now. This is a winemaker to watch. Vallado is always at the top of the rating charts, no matter what the vintage.

    Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat 2009
    Sold Out $22.99
    Incredible wine for the $$. I would have guessed it was a Spanish clone of a flagship Super Tuscan . Intensly aromatic in the glass, gorgeous garnet red, dark fruit and spice on the nose and on the palate. Delicous.

    Leeuwin Estate Art Series Riesling 2009
    Sold Out $19.99
    2014 vintage available for $24.99
    I did not get as much lemon as the reviewers, instead I perceived wonderful limey minerality. Green apple in there as well. Bone dry with high acid, the fruit is so juicy that my companion thougt there was residual sugar in it. Nope, that's called citrus fruit, lots of it. I have yet to try a Leeuwin wine I didn't love.

    Two Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
    Sold Out $8.99
    2012 vintage available for $8.99
    I was sceptical, however, this is actually an extremely good wine for the money. It is solid, smooth, and not overly-fruity, making it a great wine to sit down at lunch or dinner with. LIKE!

    Tried this yesterday. Extremely young in its development but showing great promise, I'm curious to see where it goes. At the moment, Sangiovese is prominent, meaning it has a while to integrate all it's component parts. If you insist on trying one now and one after 2014, decant for several hours.

    Testarossa Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay 2009
    Sold Out $22.95
    Style: Rich & Creamy
    Four stars for great quality priced under $50. It delivers big bang for your $. Restrained and not over the top, but with the hallmarks of California Chardonnay. Oak, butter, and delicious oak spice on the palate. Fends off flabbiness with the required acidity. Drink now.
