    Nice and light - very affordable and great tasting - good to pair with pretty much any meat or cheese - total wine
  • Silly Goose Shiraz 2 years ago Silly Goose Shiraz
    Lots of flavor, little aroma and mildly balanced. Fine for its price but certainly forgettable
  • Cellar No 8 Pinot Noir 2 years ago Cellar No 8 Pinot Noir Recommended
    Great jammy flavor with a delicate finish - great surprise for the price on this one!
  • Purple Moon Wine 2009 2 years ago Purple Moon Wine 2009
    I love Shiraz wines & risked on this cheapo. I'm too new with Shiraz to rate, but well paired with smoked Gouda
  • Resso Catalunya 2009 2 years ago Resso Catalunya 2009
    A light sweet delicious surprise paired excellently with beef and potatoes - served 4 the dinner for 2 at Selland's
  • Stone Cap Columbia Valley 2008 3 years ago Stone Cap Columbia Valley 2008
    Not a fan at all - leaves a strange taste - stingy like gross raw veggies. Maybe tobacco. Never been a huge fan of Syrah
  • Layer Cake Malbec 2010 3 years ago Layer Cake Malbec 2010
    Not a usual Malbec - either low acidity or simply the acidity is masked by the overpowering sweetness - avoid
  • Davinci Pinot Grigio 2009 3 years ago Davinci Pinot Grigio 2009
    Delicate wine with a green apple pinch that makes it unique, but difficult to pair
  • Green Barn Chardonnay 3 years ago Green Barn Chardonnay
    A delicious surprise for only $7 - delicate and sweet in after taste - first Chardonnay I've enjoyed in some time
  • Railbridge Sauvignon Blanc 2007 3 years ago Railbridge Sauvignon Blanc 2007
    Tried Sauvignon Blancs before - this is the first I've liked
  • Arrogant Frog Pinot Noir 3 years ago Arrogant Frog Pinot Noir
    Delightful full-bodied Pinot sold for $12 at Selland's market cafe
  • Pinot Grigio Primaterra 3 years ago Pinot Grigio Primaterra Recommended
    Had at Selland's Market Cafe - much calmer than other whites I've had with surprisingly deep fruited after taste
  • l'Authentique Wine 3 years ago l'Authentique Wine
    A full bodied table wine - not a notable flavor
  • Trader Joes Coastal Syrah 2009 3 years ago Trader Joes Coastal Syrah 2009
    Nothing fancy not even the price - good casual wine
  • 3 years ago
    Sweet Cabernet - what's best about it is the price compared to quality. Great with strong flavored foods!
  • Lindemans Shiraz 2009 3 years ago Lindemans Shiraz 2009
    A really great plum flavor for a cheap wine - 3/5
  • Blackstone Cabernet Sauvignon 3 years ago Blackstone Cabernet Sauvignon
    Strong with lots of flavor, but a bit of a rotten end to it :(
  • Archetype Shiraz 2006 3 years ago Archetype Shiraz 2006 Recommended
    Beautiful plum undertone with a splash of vanilla in the aftertaste. Balanced nicely.
  • Alamos Malbec 3 years ago Alamos Malbec
    Not exciting alone, but good one paired with something of strong flavor.
  • Poets Row 2008 3 years ago Poets Row 2008
    Flavor not well accompanied by the acidity - though, a predictable quality for $7-
  • La Finca Malbec 2010 3 years ago La Finca Malbec 2010
    Seems to have a good blackberry undercurrent and notably lasting sweet aftertaste. Not extremely impressed, but worth $4
