    Worthy of 4.5 stars given the humble price. Medium to full bodied red with ripe red cherry flavors. There is wonderful spiciness and texture. The finish is framed by hints of anise.Decent acidity as well makes if energetic and food friendly.

    Borgo Scopeto Borgonero 2011
    Sold Out $19.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    A great effort given the price. This wine is super smooth and dense on the palate. It is dominated by sweet red plums, cherries and raspberry. Hints of mild chocolate in the background. Has nice mineral component as well. Really a 4.5 star wine at this price. Would but again if I could.

    Waterbrook Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
    Sold Out $24.99
    2011 vintage available for $22.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    I have not had many Cabs from Washington but really enjoyed this wine. Nose is lovely with mint, cherries,cassis and dried flowers. I found this wine to be medium bodied and more linear than most Cabs from California.Plenty of red berry flavors as well as spice and good amount of acidity.Finish is short but refreshing.

    Locations by Dave Phinney E-2
    $17.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    This wine is big and bold but not over-done. Great fruit driven flavor profile with both black and re berries. Reasonable acidity keeps it balanced and refreshing at the same time. Should appeal to lots of folks.

    Vietti Roero Arneis 2012
    Sold Out $23.99
    2013 vintage available for $22.99
    Unusual white but I really liked it. This wine is has wonderful citrus elements as well as pear flavors. But it is dominated by wonderful flinty (gunpowder) aromas and flavors of wet stone and fresh brewed tea.Great acidity balances it out.Can't really put a label on the style.

    Saint Cosme Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albions 2009
    Sold Out $20.99
    2012 vintage available for $25.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    A top notch Cotes du Rhone this wine has a wonderful nose of cherries and strawberry complimented by bacon and some earthy aromas I cant quite pin down. It is medium bodied with similar flavors as well as typical black pepper flavors. The finish is framed by soft, dusty tannins that add length.

    Tasca d'Almerita Lamuri Nero d'Avola Sicilia 2010
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    This wine scores rates high on the YUM scale. One of the best Nero d'Avolas I have had. The nose and palate are framed by toasty oak and vanilla notes(but not in a bad way.) The nose is perfumed with floral and red berry fruits. In the mouth the red fruit is balanced by plenty of spice.The finish is a bit short but sweet and refreshing. This could pass as a well made Pinot Noir. Really worth 4.5 stars. Should be a crowd pleaser.

    Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico 2010
    Sold Out $19.99
    2011 vintage available for $21.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    This is a medium bodied red that is vibrant and full on energy. The nose has red cherry and raspberry notes as well as baking spices,flowers and licorice. In the mouth the red berry fruits are balanced by sweet spice, earth,tobacco and anise. The spice and acidity make this a versatile food-friendly wine.This is NOT a fruit bomb.

    Di Majo Norante Ramitello Rosso 2010
    Sold Out $15.99
    2011 vintage available for $12.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Not sure about this wine. Did not care for it at all when first opened but with some decanting it came around. A big rich wine no doubt. Lots of blackberry and ripe cherry as well as dark chocolate flavors. Soft in the mouth with long smooth finish. But it seemed a bit hot with strong almost lacquer-like aroma and flavors. I wonder if it was exposed to some hot temps in bottle at some point?
