An elegant, smooth Rhone punctuated with just the right amount of spice and acidity. A great value if you can find it for $10-$12.

Decent cherry and plum flavors. Not a lot of spice. A bit sharp for a rhone but that may be more of a positive than a negative. Good value but there are better sub $15 rhone blends out there.

It seems like most winemakers say their cabs and bordeaux blends have "rich, round and pleasing" tannins but in this case it's an accurate description. Rather than looking west to Napa or east to Bordeaux I guess more and more we should be looking south for bold, affordable reds.

Guelbenzu Vierlas 2006
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $15.29
Great color; Dark berry and pepper flavors jump off(on) the palate; only flaw is the anti-climactic finish. One of the most complex and impressive $10 wines I've ever tasted.

Blackberry flavor jumps out but is overwhelmed by a spice I can't quite put my finger on. The Medium-long finish would be more enjoyable if the spice took a back seat to the bold, supple fruit flavors that I expect in an Argentinian Malbec. I gave it 3 stars because its a good wine for the price, but its no 89.

Rhone blends are my favorite and I'm usually very critical but this Aussie GSM rivals a number of it's French counterparts at a much lower price. With a lot of these blends the lack of acidity makes the wine fall flat but this one has all the needed complexity; it's not oftern you find a wine that is light and fruity yet still full bodied, especially at $10

Good color and nose; spice and berry flavors complement well. Might be a bit overpowering and bitter to some but shouldn't be an issue with more time. Not a 93, but a great value at $20
