Château La Garde Meritage 2010, Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux A.C., France: Did you know that my birthday is tomorrow? Did you know that this would be the perfect gift? So thoughtful of you! A stunner Bordeaux in every sense: top-drawer complexity, layering, balance, depth and length on the finish. Dark fruit and smoke but not overwhelmed with oak -- no cover-ups here just pure mastery. Absolutely superb, especially for the price. Wow. Drink: 2016-2022. 682617 12.50% XD 750 mL  $44.95 Score: 95/100. June 7, 2014 Top Rated Red Wine. Best Beef Wine Full Review
Königschaffhausen Steingrüble Pinot Noir 2011, Baden Q.B.A., Germany: A summer field of ripe strawberries and raspberries to tickle your senses and bare feet. Lovely! Medium-bodied and sweetly perfumed. Incredible price. I’m buying two cases. Königschaffhausen is one of the most respected wine cooperatives in the Baden region, gathering together growers who specialize in low yields and high quality wines, like this one. Try it with seared tuna. Drink: 2013-2018. 460410 13% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 88/100. September 13, 2014 Best Value Red Wine. Scrumptious Seafood Wine Full Review
