    Southern Point "Sweet Red Wine". I'm not a big fan of sweet wines, but this one here seems to please my beer drinking friends. Retails fairly cheap @ 2 bottles for $5. Ripone California. Doesn't mention grape varietal, but the color reminds me of a young Pinot Noir.

    Tempranillo & Syrah 70/30. I bought two of these bottles, drank one and the other is in the rack. Comes from Catalayud, Tempranillo is Spains highest quality vine and this wine delivers that fruity character from the Tempranillo and the Syrah gives the wine a full body and complex aroma. $9

    I'm aging this wine. A 2007 Crianza consisting of Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Mazuelo blend from La Rioja 85/10/5. Wines from La Rioja age well, let's see how long I can keep my hands from opening it up:-)

    Lindemans from South Eastern Australia produce top quality wines at an affordable price. I've tried their Cabernet, Merlot, and Pinot Noir and all were a delight. This Shiraz is hefty with spicy tannins, and a black cherry finish. $6
  • David Stone Vineyards California Pinot Noir 2 years ago David Stone Vineyards California Pinot Noir
    Pinot Noir from Modesto in the San Joaqin Valley. Pinot Noir is by far the most "drinkable" of grape varietals for newbees on the road to wine appreciation. This one here is medium bodied, well balanced, soft on tannins, hints of blackberries and brownspice, and a velvet finish. $6

    Another Cari´┐Żena blend, Tempranillo & Cabernet 50/50. I get that fullbodied Cabernet mouth feel with a fruitful bouqet and finish from the young Tempranillo. $6.

    Beautiful blend of Garnacha & Syrah 50/50 from the Cari´┐Żena region of Spain. Fruity with mild tannens, very very affordable everyday wine @ $6.
