Red Wine

Herencia Alt├ęs Negra Garnatxa 2011, D.O., Terra Alta, Spain: Another incredible value and full-throttle wine made from 100% Grenache from very old vines and aged completely in concrete, is a naked, unadulterated, unmanipulated effort with great minerality from the chalky, limestone soils and an intensity and richness from the old vines that are normally found in $50+ wines. Loaded with black cherry liqueur, dark spices and anise. Full-bodied and ultra-smooth. Love Aussie shiraz or big chateauneuf-du-pape? Try this. Honkin big and satisfying. Hearty meat dishes will serve it well. Drink: 2013-2016. 332353 14% XD 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 90/100. June 8, 2013 Best Value Red Wine. Heavenly Hamburger Wine Full Review

White Wine

Macrostie Chardonnay 2010, Sonoma Coast, California, United States: Classic cool climate Californian chardonnay. Butterscotch balanced with green apple. Full-bodied and layered. Great with roast chicken. Drink: 2013-2016. 244467 14.10% XD 750 mL  $30.95 Score: 90/100. June 8, 2013 Charming Grilled Chicken Wine Full Review
