With the economy in the toilet, many folks are looking hard for inexpensive wines. Here's three.
2005 Clayhouse Vineyard, Syrah, Paso Robles, California, $15, 2,213 cases. Hereâ€™s a value wine to buy by the case. Sporting excellent balance and silky tannins, youâ€™ll find lovely cherry/berry fruit with a meaty undercurrent; 87/90.
2005 Estancia, Shiraz, Central Coast, California, $12. This is an excellent value wine that is made for food. The wine is understated â€“ not your fruit bomb but rather Rhone-like in nature, with earthy, meaty fruit and delightful balance; 86/90.
2006 Kendall-Jackson, Syrah, Vintnerâ€™s Reserve, California, $12. This deeply-hued wine is underscored by blackberries, blueberries and white pepper. Fruity, polished and very approachable, this is a killer value; 86/90.
