    d'Arenberg The Derelict Vineyard Grenache 2006
    Sold Out $29.99
    2009 vintage available for $24.99
    I was deeply disappointed by this wine and am frankly dumbfounded how it ever got a high rating (e.g. >90). It tastes like d"Arenberg actually added additional alcohol to this wine. This "boozy" wine fails to soften even after allowing it to breathe for nearly an hour. In short, this grenache tastes like a bargain bin marked-for-clearance bottle of wine and is not worth the $25 price tag. Save your money and look elsewhere if you want a good grenache.

    Kendall-Jackson Summation Red Blend 2006
    Sold Out $14.99
    2011 vintage available for $16.99
    Even though I only paid about $15 for this wine, I regret it. Not enjoyable at all no matter what I tried. I let it breathe for an hour and I also tried using my Vinturi to no avail. Like a previous reviewer said, there are much better choices at this price point or in the sub $20 price range.
