One of my favourites. It is up at the $13/14 rate (thats a lot for me) but well worth it. Hence why I buy, and drink, vast quantities of it. Very smooth with none of this over-powering blackberry, chocolate, haystack shit. Currently (Feb 08) on my regular shopping list.
Price has been varying on this one from $12-$14 at Sfwy. This is one of my regular buys and one that I take to dinner at other people’s places.. if I like them. Very nice finish; extremely pleasant and drinkable. Estate grown and bottled…but purchased in vast supermarkets. Where’s the romance?
Ooh ‘er, Missus. Lovely little number this one. Smooth as something that is fairly smooth. Currently, as of end of Jan, its $12 at Safeway .. with the Safeway Stingy Card (accepted by all tight-arsed northerners). Good value. Even the Missus likes it.
This was from one of the wine spectator mailings and was a 90 point wine (I’ll give my opinion on wine ratings later…)
It’s a little pricey at $17.99 but worth it if you are looking for something special or are in a Syrah mood.
The company that makes this is Concha y Toro and they have a variety of wines, some scoring big points at WS.
Good standard, widely available
A cracking zin and moderately priced. This is a Lodi appellation Zin and is widely available – Costco, Safeway, BevMo etc.
Updated: Corrected the year to 2005 although here may be some ’06 out there
Widely available and good enough to turn up at a party with. The cab is good as well
