    Root 1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $11.99
    Look, for $10 I am not going to complain much at all. You definitely need to decant this cab, it is a little bit overwhelming straight out of the bottle. I guess it's my fault for getting such a young cab but I'm not going to cellar a $10 bottle. All this being said, it is still a decent wine to go with your dinner. This might sound odd, but enjoy the wine with a similarly bold flavored food, otherwise the wine will be overpowering

    Quinta de Roriz Reserva Douro 2002
    Sold Out
    $24.00
    Purchase price: $15.99. At $15.99 this is a bargain. A bit of a fruity but bold body with smooth tannin structure. Let me just say this went very well with my filet. Even at the regular 31.99 price I would easily buy again.

    Geyser Peak Walking Tree Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
    Sold Out
    2010 vintage available for $19.99
    Purchase price: $22.99 First and second nose were great. Very aromatic, fruity bouquet, with good complexity. This got me pretty excited about my first sip. I will say that the actual taste, while still good, did not meet my lofted expectations. I expected a little more body and berry to come out in the taste, but it never really happened as much as I initially thought it might. I did think the spice was pleasant surprise, however. This is a very dry cab with firm tannins, I personally would have with a rare steak, but then again, my opinion isn't that important compared to your own preferences. At the $22.99 price point it's a good value, but at the regular 46.99 price point you could probably do better. I still enjoyed this cab, nevermind my criticisms, and would buy again. As far as Geyser Peak is concerned, I think their Reserve Alexandre Meritage is a more well rounded effort.
