2014 Olema Sonoma County Pinot Noir
Review Date: 05-16-2016
The 2014 Olema Pinot Noir is a party in a bottle. This is an endlessly drinkable Pinot Noir made in an approachable style. Ripe red fruits, including cherry and strawberry, dance across the palate. There is a slight hint of cola and baking spices, followed by a long, sweetly tannic finish. This bottle makes friends easily and is a steal in the under $20 pinot noir category.

2006 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 03-14-2016
Aromas of spiced pear, lemon curd, and toast waft from the glass. On the palate, this is a round and creamy champagne expressing notes of baked stone fruit, citrus, chalk, and biscuit. The lengthy, mineral finish alone is worth the price of admission. Drink now or hold.

2013 Mercedes Eguren Cabernet Sauvignon Vino de la Tierra de Castilla
Review Date: 11-21-2015
Under $10 with a screw cap enclosure, this wine blows away most Cabs in the $20-$30 range. Slightly sweet, dark fruit flavors are carried into a finish with just enough structure to keep you interested. The acidity is well-balanced and the hint of oak is rewarding on the finish. The price on this Cabernet is a blessing. Buy a case and keep your friends away from your expensive wines this holiday season.

2014 Tilia Malbec Mendoza
Review Date: 11-16-2015
I love the direction that affordable Argentinian Malbec is headed. This wine is taut and focused, with plenty of ripe berry fruit. Notes of plum and blackberry on the palate deliver you to a slightly tannic and spicy finish. How can this wine be only $8.99?!?!?

Caves Messias Santola "Crab Wine" Vinho Verde
Review Date: 11-01-2015
Hold on to summer with this crisp Vinho Verde! This is a very, very easy-drinking white. Grab some crab legs or grill up some white fish and enjoy the extended warm weather with THE crab wine. Cheers!

Mas Codina Cava Brut Reserva Penedès
Review Date: 07-01-2015
A sparkling wine this well constructed for under $15 could only be from Spain. This Cava would not be out of place side-by-side with wines almost double the price. I keep a bottle in my refrigerator at all times.
