    Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $23.99
    Blackberry & black cherry flavors w/apparent tannins & moderate acidity that easily handles grilled steaks. Reminiscent of a good, left-bank Bordeaux. G++. S16.5

    I find Roederer's Estate Brute to be the perfect intersection of taste and value in a sparkling wine. It is crisp with citrus, apple and berry aromas and flavors with a fine body. Though not as nutty and yeasty as many Champagnes it has a hint of those elements. It is marvelous alone or with appropriate foods. You definitely need to keep this around.

    Our stand-by house sparkling. Crisp texture w/ light citrus flavor (less than Ch. St. Michelle). No aftertaste or unpleasant aromas.

    Robert Mondavi Oakville District Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Sold Out $49.99
    2011 vintage available for $44.99
    The winemaker's notes on this one are accurate. Everything you want in a moderately priced Napa Cabernet and more flavor and finess than is present in the RM Napa Valley Cabernet. NOTE, I bought several of these in 12/08 when wine.com was selling it for $27 - a steal at that price.

    Louis Martini Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
    Sold Out $15.99
    2012 vintage available for $14.99
    Full bodied but soft. Seamless grape & red fruit aroma & red cherry dominated taste. Surprisingly, given the weight, the wine doesn't complement steak as well as pasta & chicken. Serve as one would a good Rhone wine. 10/06 - has soften enormously - wonderful, seamless fruit, tannins & oak. It is now a marvelous complement to steak! WM913.

    Rodney Strong Estate Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $18.99
    Dry red cherry aroma w/ med. color & body. Nice sour red cherry/grape & a little bit of dust flavor. The wine has good acidity & an alcoholic hit. Nice. WB17
