"Great Cab - 2015 Hanging Vine Cabernet, California – Here’s a California Cabernet with GRIP and flavor – I’d bet it’s from young vines on a Mountain in California… Very seldom found at the $11 price-point! A Super Value!! This Cabernet Sauvignon is medium-full bodied, with juicy blackcurrant, black raspberries, and gentle earth notes. Larry Levine, the winemaker, was a consulting winemaker for Quintessa, Franciscan and Mt. Veeder, where he helped garner excellent press for many of their releases… Hmmm!"

"Great Italy Dry White - Sassaia Gavi – Gavi is the white wine everyone should seek out… so much more interesting than other Italian Whites.

This wine is made from vines planted between 1960 and 1980. After soft pneumatic pressing, it is aged for 6 months in temperature controlled steel casks to keep it's bright flavors intact. Straw yellow in color with a floral nose... On the palate the wine is crisp with citrus and white flower notes. Nice Clean finish. A steal of a value in everday white wine!"

"Great Italy Dry Red - 2015 Lacryma Christi Del Vesuvio Rosso, Versacrum, Sorrentino – Perfect for all Italian Meals, this was a real head turner for me. Give it ½ hour and it really develops character. Made near Rome.. close to the Amalfi Coast…

The name of this wine is rooted in a legend. According to the story, God cried when he found a corner of Heaven stolen by Lucifer and where his tears fell, there grew the grapes that make Lacryma Christi, translated as "tears of Christ." Made from 100% Piedirosso grapes grown in volcanic soil near Mount Vesuvius and fermented in stainless steel, this is a unique red wine that is youthful, but substantial.

Intense ruby-red in color, aromas of cherries and red fruit underscore notes of plums, raspberries, and black pepper. Refined tannins and good acidity make this wine rich without being overpowering.

Pair this wine with spaghetti and meatballs, Bolognese sauce, pizza Margherita, and even grilled swordfish."

El Coto de Rioja Crianza is one of the most popular wines in all of Spain and one of the top selling Rioja's in the world. Year in/ year out this wine exhibits character, complexity and value unmatched in the category.

A typical Rioja, fresh and very satisfying. classic leather nose and vanilla bourbon; in mouth, woody flavors mingle..."

"Great Red Bordeaux - 2010 Vieux Landon Bordeaux Rouge – Yes, a 2010 Red Bordeaux SUPER VALUE!! Grab it while it lasts… Drinks WAY above it’s price.

"This is a very fine Cru Bourgeois 2010. It offers a crisp nose of autumn leaves, tobacco and espresso that is quintessentially Bordeaux. The palate is fresh and vibrant with edgy black fruit, touches of tobacco and sour cherry. It has very fine structure and seems a little chalky towards the finish. Just a bottle you will take pleasure in from beginning to end." Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate."
