Rolf Binder Heinrich 2004
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $21.99
A seamless blend of Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro grapes. Very pleasant nose reminiscent of Shiraz in the best Australian style. Well balanced fruit & acid. A joy to savor by itself, or with moderately seasoned dishes. Reasonably priced per value!

Joseph Drouhin Brouilly 2006
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $16.29
This deep red blend from Beaune is a pleasant balance of fruit, acid, oak, and tannins. Subtle flavors of raspberry, citrus, and leather. Not overly lush, or fat, but just enough austerity to remind you of it's European roots.

Alamos Malbec 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $9.99
This is a wonderful, full-bodied red, that competes favorably with Cabernet, Merlot, or Zinfandel. A well balanced wine with notes of blackberry, licorice, leather black pepper, and sweet spice. Very enjoyable, and repeatable. I will be buying more of this one. A real find!

Brancott Pinot Noir 2006
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $13.99
I've tried the 2004 and found it a well balanced and pleasant wine. It does not leap out at you with the expected Pinot Noir characteristics. In fact it tastes more like a Burgundy blend of Pinot, Gamay, and even Grenache. It is such a wonderful balance of fruit, tannins, oak, and velvety smooth on the palate. Well worth the money. Better than Brancott's more expensive Pinots.

This wine is everything the Wine Spectator says it is! I normally lean toward Pinot Noir, but this wine borders on Zinfandel for power and pizazz. Needs favorful food to contend with it, like BBQ meats, bold cheese or rich desserts. Not for the faint of palate! I'll have to buy a couple more, and save one to see how it matures!

Joseph Drouhin Vero Pinot Noir 2006
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $22.99
This is a nice balanced Pinot Noir. The fruit is expressive of black raspberries, and a little tartness of royal anne cherries. The acids and tannins are under control. Good value for the price.

I've been searching for an affordable Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara, and this is pretty close! Everything I like about Pinot; nose is earthy, peppery and raspberry, mouth feel of balanced fruit, tanins and acid. Moderate oak. Very pleasing and smooth!
