    Abadia Retuerta Seleccion Especial 2009
    $32.00 $26.65
    Save $5.35 (17%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    Rich, ripe - a big, modern style Ribera del Duero. Mulberry and blackberry and some spice flood the nose, almost Zinfandel style. Palate has good structure that reminds you you are in the old world and may want to put this down for a while. Nice finish. Guessing this would be a huge winner at any dinner party. But remember it needs food! and possibly some age.

    Vina Herminia Rioja Reserva 2006
    $24.00 $18.99
    Save $5.01 (21%)
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    wonderful reserva - still tasting so fresh. Lovely dried fruit and spice and violets in the nose, but on the palate, the brightness is still there with red fruit, touch of pepper and wonderful structure and length.

    Kenwood Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
    $75.00 $49.99
    Save $25.01 (33%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    WOW. This wine is an elegant, yet dense Sonoma Cabernet. I'd want to lie this down, but at the same time, it's super tempting to drink now. Really expressive and lifted in aromatics. The palate is so balanced - not heavy, but still has power. I'll call it powerful finesse. Delicious :)

    delightful! Ridge is such a classic producer and they do so well with this blend - good red, spicy fruit, a great backbone of structure and lingering finish. You will come back for more.

    A new favorite white wine! It's crisp, it's refreshing, with just the right balance of fruit and acidity. Not sweet, but not totally dry either, this wine packs a punch for it's light body and lower alcohol %. It is an ideal wine to sip while cooking or to have on the Thanksgiving table!

    Il Molino di Grace Chianti Classico 2010
    $23.00 $18.99
    Save $4.01 (17%)
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Good, classic Chanti. Bright cherry and spice, with dried flowers coming through on the nose. Palate delivered great acidity, dusty tannins and a decent finish. All around a balanced classic Chianti.

    Antucura Malbec 2012
    $16.00 $13.99
    Save $2.01 (13%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    great Malbec for the price! Dark berry, cassis, spice... dense fruit coats the palate, but a great structural backbone keeps it all in balance. If you're a Malbec fan stock up on this for the everyday!

    Greywacke Pinot Noir Marlborough 2012
    $36.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Delicious! Love this Pinot. It has all the balance you want in fruit/earth/spice; rich red berries, sweet herbs, a floral note, lovely spice... then bright acidity, a savory texture and tannins that give it a touch of heft. If you love Pinot from cool climates: Oregon, Carneros, Burgundy, etc, this is for you!
