    Two Hands Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
    $29.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Sexy indeed... this is a fantastic Cabernet from the Two Hands team. Typical Cabernet aromas of black currant, dark fruit, licorice and a touch of bell pepper. The palate is rich and generous, with all the above flavors well integrated with the supple tannins and lingering finish. I'd take this over the many Cali Cabs at the same price.

    Julia Kemper White Reserve 2012
    Sold Out
    $19.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    Recently had this at a tasting - absolutely delicious. It was the least mineral-driven of the 6 I tasted, but I loved it still. great texture and flavors of stone fruits, floral undertones and a lingering finish. A wonderful white wine.

    Angove Family Winemakers McLaren Vale Vineyard Select Shiraz 2010
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Pair with: pizza, pulled pork
    Typical big Shiraz aromas like sweet mint, ripe blueberry and spice. Dense and coating on the palate, with black cherry and blueberries and almost like drinking a blackberry pie, but with excellent structure. Well done for this price point!

    All around classic Pinot for under $15 - bright red fruits, baking spices, lovely acidity and supple mouthfeel. I bought a case for myself and dinner parties because it is one of those fantastic every day wines that goes with all sorts of foods. You won't need a special occasion to pull it out for dinner, but you won't be disappointed.

    Terrific value! A smooth & supple red, with lots of chocolate and black cherry,, a touch of spice, and an all around plush mouthfeel. It's fruit-forward in a new world style, but with an old world kick. Balanced, easy drinking

    Argiano Non Confunditur 2011
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    When I first had this wine at home, I didn't think it had enough fruit. But when I tried it again, I loved it. It has dark fruit character, dusty tannins that are well-integrated. All around balance and a good finish. A great medium-bodied wine to appeal to many different wine lovers.

    Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    For $20, I'd take this Cabernet over just about any California Cabernet in the price range. It is structured, balanced, with dark fruits and spicy undertones. No over-the-top anything, a very solid wine that pairs great with a steak or on it's own. Not to mention a fantastic, lingering finish.

    Sonoma-Cutrer The Cutrer Chardonnay 2011
    $34.99
    Style: Rich & Creamy
    Pair with: Salmon > Grilled, Chicken > Lemon/Citrus, Pasta > White Sauce/Seafood
    YUM. What Chardonnay should be. The review perfectly describes the richness of the wine - it is natural, integrated, and balanced by a bright acidity. The texture and balance of this wine is excellent. No bitterness, just clean, refreshing and rich. All to easy to keep sipping...

    Okay, 5 stars because of the value this offers. This wine is clean and bright, with fresh red fruits, a hint of spice, lively acidity, balanced structure and a lingering finish. Makes you want some good Spanish tapas or an appetizer. Great for spring/summer, a perfect everyday food wine. Amazing value.
