Top Summer Wine Values – Drink Fine Wine and Don't Pay Fine Wine Prices

Let’s face it. We all love to get a screaming deal. Wealthy or wise, office or cube, its always fun to find that magical bottle on a deep deal. This summer is one of a particular challenge. With our wallets getting tighter, and the heat getting hotter, we’ve assembled a few wine buys that we feel should catch your attention…

  1. 2008 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc, a refreshing crisp pool side wonder. Apple, citrus, and acidity and minerality creates a soft finish. Under $15
  2. 2006 Ben Marco Expressivo, Malbec, Cabernet, Syrah and Petit Verdot, this wine is really boastful of blackberry flavors, smoke, spice and fig. Works wonders with a chicken sandwich or perhaps a blue cheese burger.
  3. 2004 McLean’s Farm Shiraz Cabernet is a special wine that overdelivers at a phenominal price. Dark, concentrated blackberry, cherry, cassis, and a hint of tobacco leaf. Comparible to wines that retail for $30. Take it home for $14.89
  4. 2006 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, is just that…special, and a heck of a deal at $95 (reg $150). Headed to a dinner party, then you need a power Napa cab. This baby is best described as an iron fist in a velvet glove. Wild berry, cola, blackberry, concentrated cherry. Perfect with a select cut NY strip.
  5. 2008 Crios de Susana de Balbo Malbec offers an enticing bouquet of spice box, cedar, black cherry and black raspberry. Medium-bodied and full-flavored, on the palate it has gobs of spicy, savory fruit, soft tannins, and a lengthy finish.
