    Bodega Norton Privada 2012
    $26.00 $19.99
    Save $6.01 (23%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    This wine is very good but requires considerable time in the open air (>2 hr) to come together properly. It might be a little early to drink (thinking ~2016-2017), but it's still quite tasty with proper breathing. Can't beat Bodega Norton Cabernet blend at this price.

    Cune Monopole 2013
    Sold Out $14.99
    2014 vintage available for $11.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    Fruit forward but balanced; nice, distinctive flavors of peach and lemon. Poignant and persistent finish, nice acidity. Exactly what you want from a food friendly white and a steal at this price.

    Bodega Norton Malbec Reserva 2011
    $20.00 $13.99
    Save $6.01 (30%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    Don't let the mundane bottle art deceive you; within lurks the greatest value Malbec from a truly stellar South American vintage (2011). French oak allows this varietal to shine, supporting ripeness with great minerality and acidity with this fabulous effort from Bodega Norton. Napa ought to be running scared with the reds coming out of the 2011 Chile/Argentina vintage. Let's see how long the advertising machine can last in the face of superior value and taste.

    Saint Cosme Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009
    Sold Out $54.99
    2011 vintage available for $60.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    This needs additional cellaring time for the tannic spine to fully unwind but it is very good. I would not open the 2009 until 2015 or 2016. Took a full two hours to decant and hit its stride. The strength of the 2009 and 2010 french vintages are undeniable. Enjoy them!

    A slightly fruitier, up-front basic brut, very much in line with the PH profile. Big time value and a no-brainer in this price range. Should impress everyone based on taste.

    Can Blau Celler Can Blau 2009
    Sold Out $16.99
    2012 vintage available for $13.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Overdelivers in a big way. Very much a "mood" wine in the style of Spanish garnacha blends. Remains true to its roots.

    Ken Wright Cellars Tyrus Evan Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2007
    Sold Out $39.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Knockout stuff in this vintage, still has time to improve as the fruit explodes from the glass. Needs a good hour to decant, no doubt, although I couldn't wait that long.

    I do not understand Borsao's intentions with this wine. They are clearly intending to target the american palate with this hyper ripe, uber modern expression of cabernet sauvignon and syrah, burying the grenache into a state of irrelevance. But this is bad because the wine no longer tastes as if it comes from Spain or even Europe. It's a fool's errand to masquerade as a spanish wine with a modern californian taste profile.
