A little fruity, a little weedy, a bit tannic, totally dry, and an easy sipper. What’s not to like? Will do just fine with that steak, and it’s a great price for a Cabernet from this top appellation.
A Julia Roberts of a Merlot, pretty and innocent, maybe a little clueless. But who cares? It’s fruity, dry, and fun, and even has some layers of complexity. Best of all, it doesn’t cost too much. Drink up!
This reserve-style wine, which is richer than the winery’s regular release, offers lots of bang for your buck. Ripe and juicy in peach and apple flavors that are well oaked, with a long, spicy finish.
Don’t think that the price means this isn’t a good wine. Lots of fruity finesse and satisfaction. It’s dry and crisp, with long, ripe citrus and fig flavors and such a nice, clean mouthfeel.
Lots of true varietal character in this versatile, tasty wine, with ripe fruit, crisp acids and loads of tingly cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Technically dry, but sweet in peaches and wildflowers. A nice value.
Surprisingly good for the price; here’s a domestic Syrah to take on the hordes of Aussie imports. Light in body, but features the things consumers seem to be looking for in a basic red: cherry fruit accented by caramel and vanilla. Notes of chocolate, cedar and herb chime in on the finish.
Smells hot and vegetal, with aromas suggesting canned asparagus, although there are some riper blackberry flavors in the mouth. Very dry and properly structured, with a dusty finish.
