Great value Bordeaux blend. Hints of spice, leather, cassis and plum....yum! Scored 90 points with Wine Spectator, but I give it a 91.

Connie reviewed this wine:

one of those wow wines. Guigal has never disapointed!The wine is full body but, the tannins are soft. Drink now or put it away for a while.

Mud House Pinot Noir 2009

Central Otago, New Zealand

Connie scored this wine: 90/100

Wow, this wine is sooo good! Medium body so you can sip it with friends with no food at all or pair it with a family meal of turkey, or an easy pizzie, pizza. New Zealand makes great Pinot but to find one from Central Otago under 20 bucks, yeeha!!

Graham Beck Sauvignon Blanc 2010

W.O., Coastal Region, South Africa

Connie scored this wine: 88/100

I have been drinking a lot of New Zealand SB's lately, I think the Mud House is a terrific value from there. I found the G.B. a nice change, more earthy, herbal notes as apposed to the fruity of the other, I love everything I have tried from this house from their Rose to my favourite Gamekeeper red, At $13.95 I'm tempted to give it a 90!
