Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2013, Marlborough, New Zealand: Toasty oak on the nose wraps around fleshy ripe black cherries. Full-bodied, mouth-watering juicy and smooth with a great finish. New Zealand Pinot Noir offers that unique combination of fleshy fruit and zingy juiciness. Oyster Bay is part of the Delegat wine portfolio and a solid producer of good value wines including this New Zealand Pinot Noir. Smoky oak and black cherry notes with some dark spice on the finish. Terrific with a wide range of dishes. Yum! Drink: 2014-2018. 590414 13.50% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 91/100. April 18, 2015 Best Value Red Wine. Scrumptious Seafood Wine Full Review
Terra Noble Gran Reserva Carmenère 2011, Maule Valley, Chile: Love the full-on campfire, toasty oak and smoke on the nose of this robust red. Gorgeous layering on this Chilean red wine made from Carmenere grapes, with voluptuously fleshy black plum and berry aromas and flavours. This wine goes on and on and on. Nice price. Pair with grilled pork chops. Drink: 2014-2018. 957050 13.50% XD 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 91/100. May 2, 2015 Best Value Red Wine. Glorious Game Wine Full Review
