    Angove Family Winemakers McLaren Vale Vineyard Select Shiraz 2010
    Sold Out $16.99
    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!

    Style: Smooth & Supple
    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.

    Argiano Non Confunditur 2011
    Sold Out $19.99
    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 $19.99
    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.

    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.

    Clarendelle Blanc 2012
    Sold Out $18.99
    2011 vintage available for $18.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    Delicious! A wonderful example of Bordeaux Blanc. It is crisp and lively, but with a rich texture and rich fruit flavors. A perfect balance for those who enjoy crisp acidity and ripe fruit.
