Great wine doesn’t have to cost a lot…
Ted Clark, Wine Consultant, Pop’s Wine & Spirits, December, 2016

"Dark, Dense and Opulent for the vintage… a Great Value. One of the best 2011’s I’ve tried! Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The wine shows modern, smooth, rich and dense, with ripe tannins, intense notes of black fruits and cocoa."

"Over-performing 2010 Second wine of Grand Puy Ducasse – Very hard to find a Pauillac under $50 worth buying anymore – this one is a gem! Don’t wait. A nicely-balanced and classic Pauillac. A 60/ 40 composition of Cabernet and Merlot, this sturdy Bordeaux displays a solid cedar, graphite structure filled with plush cassis and dark red currants. A finish of licorice and pepper goes on and on, making this a fine wine for peppery steak with demiglace or slow-cooked pork shoulder."

"Second wine of Leoville Las Cases, the Lion Roars Blueberries and minerals on the nose, with hints of flowers. Full body, with firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. A little linear in structure, but very fine. 2009 juice here is delicious."

"My favorite house that I wished I could afford… Palmer’s Alter Ego is gorgeous everytime I try it…. Built to drink great in it’s first 10 years of life…

94 points - James Suckling
“This is amazing for the second wine with incredible white truffle, stone and currant character. Purity of fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible.” (2/2015)

2012 Chateau Alter Ego, Margaux (Chateau Palmer), 750ml
$129.99 - Good Wine Stores
$82.80 - Pop's Single Bottle Price

"Another Solid red, this Baron de Brane has been a customer favorite… Gorgeous Margaux character and rich fruit… Don’t miss it. Great price/value."

92 Points Wine Spectator
“Bright and intensely floral, with a lovely violet aroma and long, rich plum sauce, blackberry and currant notes. There’s lush toast [oak], but it’s nicely integrated. Very suave.”

2010 Chateau Baron de Brane, Margaux (Brane Cantenac), 750ml
$39.99 - Good Wine Stores
$31.72 - Pop's Single Bottle Price
$28.20 - Pop's Mixed Case Price

"Another unbelievable Value, the 2012 Meyney is full bodied and lush and ready to drink now. This estate is quickly returning from a long period of mediocrity. This sleeper of the vintage exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to copious notes of black raspberries, blueberries, loamy soil and roasted Provencal herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it should drink well for 10-12+ years."
