    Excellent value! Tastes just as crisp, lemony, and creamy as an expensive Cremant! My new favorite sparkling. Going to buy a case for the holidays, sure to be a crowd pleaser. Tart rather than dry, refreshing apertif, would be a great gift, no one would believe the price tag. Bubbles are refined and mellow.

    Hogue Genesis Syrah 2009
    Sold Out $8.99
    2011 vintage available for $16.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Delicious! Anise and black cherry, cola, a hint of smoke, definitely an excellent value. I have to say, it reminded me of a nice Pinot rather than a Syrah, but so elegant I did not mind! Will be purchasing for Thanksgiving dinner. Was wonderful with a carrot ginger soup.

    This is the first wine I have ordered on wine.com that I truly hated! Tasted of rancid pine needles, raw essential oils. Screwcap top, so how could it be corked ? Concentrated and tarry, just strange. Maybe I have a limited palate? Definitely "earthy" in the worst way. I thought maybe my palate was off, tried again after a few hours still undrinkable.

    Tilia Malbec 2011
    Sold Out $9.99
    2013 vintage available for $8.99

    Style: Smooth & Supple
    This wine will be great to have during the holidays, I plan on buying more to have on hand. There is a very appealing dark berry and maple syrup richness to this Malbec. Medium to full bodied and very nice as a casual drinking wine. The simplicity of this wine makes it a safe choice for a larger group of people. Those new to wine and heavy tannins will appreciate the rich fruit without an intense finish. Good value! Update: I had to come back and give this wine 5 instead of 4 stars because it really merits it. The next day the wine had evolved into this rich and round wine far more developed than before. Excellent.
