“If you're looking for an excellent Pinot Noir on the cheap, look no further than this beauty from Santa Barbara County. The 2016 Seaglass offers bright cherry aroma on the nose and palate, a touch of wood spice and fine tannins. In its price category this is a killer bottle of wine.” ($12)

“Always one of the wine world’s great values.....
..... Banfi’s “Centine” red blend is particularly delicious in 2015. It shows the fully ripe character imparted by the growing season, which was particularly advantageous for reds, and yet it comes across as a remarkably complete wine, with excellent balancing acidity and savory aromas and flavors to set off the pure fruit notes. The fact that it would be perfect for pizza is worth noting, but don’t let that suggest that this wine couldn’t dress up for more elaborate fare, as it shows a level of complexity and class that completely belies its asking price. A blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.” ($12)

“A soft and fruity wine with lots of berries, hints of lemon rind and walnut character. Medium to full body and a juicy finish. Drink now.”

"..... elegant and well balanced....."
91 points too!
"The Blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (40 percent), Merlot (24), Carmenere (23) Petit Verdot (10) and Cabernet Franc (3). The Cabernet dominates with notes of blackberry and cassis and the Merlot lends a gentle herbal note that conjures up comparisons to young Bordeaux. On the palate the wine is elegant and well balanced, with smooth tannins and a long, lingering finish. Exceptional value!"

"..... Quite impressive! ....."
"This smoky and somewhat tarry red blend comes from the Elqui Valley in the north of Chile. It is quite expressive and bold with round tannins and a spicy finish. This is juicy and satisfying, ripe wine, with a kind of Washington-meets-northern Rhone quality. Quite impressive!

"Kettmeir has hit the nail on the head.....
.....with this attractive value buy. The 2016 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco is a fantastic expression with a deep sense of purity and finesse. I suggest you serve the wine ice cold. The bouquet shows a high level of intensity and fragrance, with white peach, citrus and passion fruit that you don't often get with the often neutral-smelling Pinot Bianco grape."
