Pipon Tempranillo/Monastrell 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $10.49
A spicy house red at a very affordable price, Pipon Tempranillo/Monastrell 2007 is a bit too harsh on the palate.

Soleto Primitivo 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $14.00
Deep purple in color, this full-bodied, heavy Italian red tastes of blackberry, pine, and pepper with a spicy, loamy nose.

Spadafora Don Pietro Rosso 2004
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $24.00
Full-bodied and robust Sicilian red with dark berry flavors and hints of grain and oak. It has a strong, spicy bouquet. Great with red meat and savory, soft cheeses.

Casa Castillo Monastrell 2005
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $11.00
A drinkable, dry Spanish red that probably held better if tasted in earlier years. For the price, though, it's still not too bad a purchase.

Layer Cake Malbec 2008
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $19.99
While robust with a dark berry aroma and spicy palate, alcohol overwhelms most of flavors.

Hard and tart on the palate, I've tried two bottles of this vintage to much disappointment. There's no real body to the wine. Being a fan of red wine from the Cotes-du-Rhone AOC, I tried a second bottle after my failed first try and found it similarly unappetizing. Given the other positive feedback, they could've been bad bottles, but I'm not going to pay for a third try!

A little on the young side, Maipe Malbec 2008 has a medium body, floral scents, and a smooth palate with a fruity flavor and spicy finish. The powerful taste of dark fruits can be overwhelming unless paired with savory dishes.

La Posta Cocina 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $14.99
Smooth Argentine red blend with medium body and oak. A lightly spicy finish lingers after the juicy flavors of strawberries, plum, and blueberries.

MandraRossa Nero d'Avola 2006
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $11.79
Spicy, tannic, and pretty strong in alcohol content (13.5%), the MandraRossa fails to supply enough body to hold up such a robust flavor. The end result is a watery red that can't really be considered silky with a highly acidic finish. I could really feel my palate burning after this one, which is rare in 2006 red varietals that I've tasted so far.

Green Point Shiraz 2005
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $19.99
At $10 a bottle, this dark, spicy, bold Shiraz is a good purchase. A dollar more, and I'd think twice.
