90 points and only $11.99

Great wines and great for the budget!
2008 Maipe Malbec....$11.99
"The 2008 Malbec is a glass-coating purple color with a striking perfume of violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. Exhibiting surprising complexity for its price category, the wine has gobs of fruit, savory flavors, and excellent depth and length. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 3-4 years."
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate



2007 Souverain Chardonnay...$11.99
"This classic Alexander Valley Chardonnay offers vibrant aromas of ripe pear, white peach and yellow apple. On the palate the wine has a nice viscosity and creamy texture with lasting flavors of lemon, pear and honeycomb. The wine has bright acidity and a long, lingering finish." -- Souverain Winery

"Complex aromas of citrus, pear, apple and honeysuckle, with touches of toasty oak. Full-bodied, rich and elegant, with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2011. 35,000 cases made. –JL"
Rated 90/100 The Wine Spectator
