Here are some of the wines on sale that I sampled a few months ago!

Best Deal

2015 Substance Cabernet Sauvignon – USA, Washington (10/28/2017) $11.99
Day 2 review. Classic Washington Cab with cherry, plums, menthol and spices. Drinking really well and should age for a few years. Best Cabernet in the world for under $15. Day 3 still going strong and very enjoyable. Not an oak bomb like some of the Quilceda Creeks I have tasted in recent memory. (90 points)

2015 Witness Tree Vineyard Viognier – USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (12/9/2017) $12.79
Solid with floral, subtle spice and refreshing acidity. Short to medium finish. (90 points)

2014 d’Arenberg Shiraz The Footbolt – Australia, South Australia, Fleurieu, McLaren Vale (12/9/2017) $10.99
Dark fruits, eucalyptus, violets and black licorice. Well made overall but not for the Old World Wine Drinker. For $11.99 a good every day wine. (88 points)

2015 Selbach Saar Riesling Spätlese – Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (12/9/2017) $12.79
Had to pop one of these as the price was so low. Slate, orange peel, peaches, pear and spices. Medium plus finish and great acidity. While some sweetness this wine is completely balanced and a case buy!!! (91 points)
