    Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
    Sold Out $8.99
    2012 vintage available for $8.99
    I don't know if this is a legit 91 rated cab.... but you can sure pay a lot more for a lot less. This is not a big, round California-style cabernet, but it still fairly full on the palate with good fruit. Thin but clean on the back end. It holds up well with grilled meat. At the price, you can't beat it. It's our new "house red."

    Crios de Susana Balbo Rose of Malbec 2009
    Sold Out $11.29
    2013 vintage available for $12.99
    We generally favor heavier reds, so I bought this wine with low expectations just to have a rose on hand. After one bottle, I ordered a case. It is light and crisp, but has much more depth and character than typical American pinks (like white zins and white grenache's). Not overly sweet at all, and meatiness and earthiness of malbec is present on the back, beneath summer fruit and florals up front. This wine isn't going to "wow" anybody, but it is very nice to have moderately chilled, on a warm evening on the patio with fresh fuits or cheeses.
