Schild Estate Shiraz 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $19.99
This is the off-year of a WS Top 100 wine, but there is nothing off about it. It is beautiful - intense, fantastic Shiraz.

The second time I tried this wine I tried an experiment I rarely try: I left a half full bottle open all night and tried it again. Wow! Not only was it not oxidized, as I feared, it was much better integrated and much better overall. Since exposure to air is a way to simulate aging, I think this wine can age well and will probably be 4 stars in a couple of years - not bad for under $20! I'm glad I still have several more bottles.

I am not a big white wine fan. About 80% of what I drink is red. But this stuff is great. It's got a more viscous mouthfeel more like red wine and you can taste so many different flavors from the 9 varieties (!!) used: citrus, floral, nuts. Great stuff, and especially at this price!

I've had this wine before when it was stunning. When wine.com offered it for only $18, I bought several bottles. (I previously paid $30+.) At $18 it's a nice wine, but the 2006 is just good, not great. Typical Shiraz flavors, and you can taste the dash of Viognier. Also, it's not overoaked, as too many big red wines in this price range are. Nice for the price.
