Beringer Founders' Estate Merlot 2012, California, United States: A smooth, easy-drinking merlot with benchmark aromas of black fleshy plums and dark berries. Drink, don't think ... and enjoy with grilled pork chops. Drink: 2013-2018. 534255 13.90% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100. April 16, 2015 Best Value Red Wine. Full Review
G√©rard Bertrand Syrah Grenache 2011, Languedoc A.P., France: Savoury and juicy with meaty, dark spice character. Amazing QPR: quality price quality. This is mostly Syrah and Grenache in the blend. The greater diurnal shift (change) between daytime and night-time temperatures in the region intensifies the dark fruit and dense cassis character of the wine. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months. Pair with prime rib. Drink: 2014-2018. 413237 13.50% XD 750 mL  $17.00 Score: 90/100. May 2, 2015 Best Value Red Wine.
