    Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Sold Out $43.99
    2011 vintage available for $49.99
    As a Napa Valley Cab, I was expecting more out of this bottle than it could deliver. It has beautiful coloration and a lively nose, but the flavor seemed muted a bit. It reminded me more of an old world wine. Nevertheless, it is a solid pick!

    Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
    Sold Out $39.99
    2010 vintage available for $39.99
    Beautiful ruby coloration with a very lively, inviting aroma with black cherry perhaps. The aroma cannot be overstated on this one - it is very nice. This is a joy from the instant it hits the tongue, and it seems to be well balanced and smooth -- I agree with another reviewer's "clean & crisp" comment, which is not to be mistaken for "simple." It's wonderful!

    Feudi di San Gregorio Falanghina 2004
    Sold Out $12.49
    2013 vintage available for $13.99
    I don't do white wine, so trying this one was like stepping into the unknown. Having said that, I found this to have a pleasant taste. It was fresh with only a hint of early sweetness. Nothing seemingly bad about it. Solid.

    Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Sold Out $22.99
    2012 vintage available for $28.99
    This cabernet hits all the right notes. Nose, body, flavor, complexity. It's all there. Nothing extraordinary here, but certainly not sub-par. Nicely done and what you expect from a California cab.

    A nice cabernet. Not overly fruity. Cherry, smoke, and coffee. Well balanced.

    Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
    Sold Out $19.79
    2011 vintage available for $16.99
    I believe this is the first Argentinian wine I've had, and I am quite pleased. It's different from the California cabs I've had before but in a good and unique way. An expressive wine with a fruity yet earthy nose (perhaps the tobacco from the description?), a full and interesting taste, and a smooth and soft mouthfeel. I'm not an expert, but given the seemingly strong tannic structure, it could probably benefit from some aging.

    Root 1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    Nice presentation -- the bottle design is delightfully unique. Fantastic ruby coloration. Sweet and lively fruity nose. Smooth and enjoyable flavor of berries balanced by earthy notes. And at this price, a great value.
