    Jaboulet Parallele 45 Rouge 2007
    Sold Out $11.49
    2010 vintage available for $16.99
    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.

    Louis Bernard Cotes du Rhone 2007
    Sold Out $12.99
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    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.

    Alamos Malbec 2009
    Sold Out $9.29
    2013 vintage available for $10.99
    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.

    d'Arenberg Stump Jump Red 2008
    Sold Out $10.99
    2011 vintage available for $12.99
    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

    Newton Claret 2007
    Sold Out $19.99
    2011 vintage available for $25.99
    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
